Mets Player Performance Meter: Hitters, Weeks 24 & 25

It's the final installment of the 2013 season of the Amazin' Avenue Player Meter.

The Mets had trouble scoring runs all year, and the last couple of weeks weren't an exception. The best thing about the team's performance at the plate over the last two weeks was that it wasn't quite as bad as its performance the week before. "This Week" is indicative of each player's performance over the final two weeks of the season.

Player Last Week This Week Comment
Mike Baxter, OF Like most other weeks, the last two weren't great for Whitestone's own.
Andrew Brown, OF With a bit more playing time than he received over most of the season, Brown struggled at the plate.
Juan Centeno, C -- In a few games as the third part of the Mets' September catching platoon, he hit a cool .300 but had no walks or extra-base hits.
Travis d'Arnaud, C The rookie catcher saved his best weeks for last, hitting .318/.444/.364 in 8 games.
Matt den Dekker, OF With 7 strikeouts in just 17 plate appearances, den Dekker's biggest flaw as a hitter was on display.
Lucas Duda, 1B While Duda didn't hit very much in place of the injured Ike Davis, the front office likely won't put too much weight on his poor September.
Wilmer Flores, IF Perhaps it was a pair of bum ankles that slowed Flores's production, or maybe it was the fact that he's still just 22. Whatever the case, he didn't hit much.
Juan Lagares, CF There's little question that Lagares is very good at playing center field, but he had a .170 OBP in his last dozen games of the year.
Zach Lutz, IF He only had 4 plate appearances in two weeks but posted a 2.500 OPS with a single, a double, and a pair of walks.
Daniel Murphy, 2B The Irish Hammer finished the season strong with a .364 OBP and .510 SLG.
Omar Quintanilla, SS In a part-time role, Quintanilla barely hit. It's hard to imagine him back with the Mets in 2014.
Anthony Recker, C Like d'Arnaud, Recker had his best stretch at the end of the year with an .872 OPS.
Josh Satin, 1B While he only started three games, Satin played in eleven and did good work with the bat. The .375 OBP and .524 SLG were among the best on the team over these two weeks.
Ruben Tejada, SS Tejada actually hit a bit in all of two games before breaking his leg while making a catch because of course he did.
Wilfredo Tovar, SS -- Recalled when Tejada got hurt, Tovar hit .200 with a .294 OBP in 7 games.
Justin Turner, IF With an .847 OPS, Eric Simon's favorite player rides off into the offseason.
David Wright, 3B Back from his hamstring injury, David Wright was excellent in seven games, just as he had been before he hit the disabled list. He's an elite player, not just at his position.
Eric Young Jr., LF Young might have gone on a base-stealing binge at the end of the season, but he hit just .228 with a .241 OBP in 13 games.

This week's meter covers games from September 16 through September 29.
