Mets Player Performance Meter, Week 16: Hitters

Angel who?
Angel who?

The Mets had a bit of an odd week as hitters. Over their past seven games, they went 3-4 and averaged 3.86 runs per game. They scored 9, 1, 6, 3, 2, 0, and 6 runs, respectively, which made for an all-or-nothing type of week. For the season, the team is now averaging 4.44 runs per game, good enough for sixth in the National League and slightly above league average. Their .316 wOBA ranks eighth in the NL, but their 99 wRC+ ranks fourth.

Player Last Week This Week Comment
Mike Baxter, OF Apparently Baxter attended the Sandy Alderson Academy of Walks during his long stint on the disabled list. He drew seven free passes and got hit by a pitch for a .588 OBP since he returned, but he hit just .222 with no extra-base hits.
Jason Bay, LF Terry Collins finally made it officially official that Bay is no longer an everyday player. Bay didn't do anything this week to change minds, either.
Ronny Cedeno, SS Cedeno hit a cool .545/.583/1.000 this week, and his performance at the plate this year is leaps and bounds ahead of his entire career.
Ike Davis, 1B For a little while there, it looked like Ike had shaken his early-season struggles, but he's been one of the worst-hitting first basemen in the game lately.
Scott Hairston, OF Well, he can't be great every week.
Rob Johnson, C So, I don't think there was ever a week in which Mike Nickeas hit zero — as in .000/.000/.000 — like Johnson did this week.
Daniel Murphy, 2B Hammer be hammerin'.
Ruben Tejada, SS The 22-year-old shortstop continues to be an on-base machine. Not many teams have a player like that.
Josh Thole, C Thole hit just .222, but at least he drew enough walks for a .333 OBP.
Andres Torres, CF With a 1.019 OPS and a few slick defensive plays this week, Torres was outstanding.
Justin Turner, IF .250/.250/.250 with zero pies.
Jordany Valdespin, OF The fact that he had drawn so few walks this season was a red flag, and he's struggling mightily now.
David Wright, 3B Wright's slumping, but he still managed a respectable .355 OBP in the process. For some of his teammates, that would be a good week.
