Travis d'Arnaud's first big league home run was the highlight of the week for Mets hitters.

A Mets lineup without David Wright just isn't nearly as good as a Mets lineup with David Wright. For now, though, Mets fans are at least able to see what some of the team's young players are capable of as the team looks ahead to 2014.

This week's meter covers Mets games from August 20 through 25.

Player Last Week This Week Comment
Mike Baxter, OF Baxter went just 0-for-1 before he was sent down to Vegas again.
Andrew Brown, OF After crushing the ball last week, Brown struggled in limited playing time here.
John Buck, C Hitless in a pair of games, there's no doubt Buck is the backup to d'Arnaud the rest of the way.
Marlon Byrd, RF Byrd hasn't had many bad weeks this year, but this was certainly one of them as he had just a .190 OBP and .381 SLG.
Travis d'Arnaud, C He's not hitting too often, but his first big league hit was a double and second was a home run. Those hits, plus a walk, gave d'Arnaud a .795 OPS despite a .182 average.
Ike Davis, 1B He's not doing it with home runs, but Ike is still providing plenty of value at the plate since his recall. He hit .308/.438/.615 this week with 1 HR.
Lucas Duda, PH -- In his return from the minors, Duda drew a walk in his only plate appearance.
Wilmer Flores, 3B He hit .286 with a .375 OBP, but he didn't have any extra-base hits.
Juan Lagares, CF Getting on base at a .381 and playing great defense in center field is fantastic. Let's hope Lagares has a few more weeks with an OBP better than his .294 mark for the season.
Daniel Murphy, 2B Murphy's mediocre year at the plate continued with a .250/.286/.250 slash line. He's down to a .305 wOBA and 95 wRC+ on the season.
Omar Quintanilla, SS Whatever Ruben Tejada has done over the past couple of years, he's got to get playing time in September, right? Quintanilla's .083/.214/.083 line for the week was very, very poor.
Josh Satin, 1B He's not playing a ton with Ike's consistent production lately, but Satin still had a 1.262 OPS. #HAIL
Justin Turner, IF If his .333 OPS were an OBP, he'd have earned the sidways arrow.
David Wright, 3B Wright did some running over the weekend at Citi Field, and he's likely heading to Port St. Lucie soon as he rehabilitates his hamstring injury.
Eric Young, LF It was another light-hitting week for the Jersey native, as he had just a .606 OPS.
