Mets Player Performance Meter: Hitters, Week 6

Most Mets hitters struggled, but there were a few bright spots.

Christopher Pasatieri

The Mets spent most of the week losing, and they called up a couple of players—Wilmer Flores and Eric Campbell—in an attempt to give their lineup a boost. In the six games they played over the last week, the team scored just fourteen runs, an average of 2.33 runs per game. That brings their scoring down to 3.94 runs per game on the season, which ranks eighth in the National League, a shade below the Washington Nationals and National League average, both of which are currently 3.97.

Player Last Week This Week Comment
Bobby Abreu, OF/PH Abreu had seven plate appearances for the week and managed just a .310 OPS in them.
Eric Campbell, UTIL -- Recalled by the Mets on Saturday, Campbell had a big pinch-hit sacrifice fly on Saturday night and went 1-for-4 with a walk in total.
Travis d’Arnaud, C The young catcher had a few good weeks, but this marks his second straight down arrow.
Lucas Duda, 1B It was a rough week at the plate for Duda, who hit .167 without any extra-base hits.
Wilmer Flores, SS -- Recalled to get a shot at proving himself a capable major league shortstop, Flores went 2-for-9 in a pair of starts with a couple of singles, one strikeout, and one walk.
Curtis Granderson, RF It wasn’t an outstanding week for Granderson, but it was a decent one. His 118 wRC+ for the week was the fourth-best mark on the team and one of his better weeks this season.
Juan Lagares, CF It hasn’t happened often this year, but Lagares had a real stinker of a week. He was at least able to maintain a .308 on-base percentage despite hitting just .182.
Daniel Murphy, 2B The first fireball of the season goes to Murphy, who came off a good week and led the Mets in hitting by quite a bit. His .333/.448/.750 slash line included a couple of home runs and translated to a .497 wOBA and 227 wRC+. That’s easily the best week any Mets hitter has had this season.
Omar Quintanilla, SS Q went 0-for-3 and was sent down to Vegas in favor of Wilmer Flores.
Anthony Recker, C Recker got into five games but did not produce at the plate when he played. He’ll have to wreck ‘em next week instead.
Josh Satin, 1B #HAIL went 0-for-6 and earned himself a demotion to Vegas in the process.
Ruben Tejada, SS While he hit just .222/.364/.333, one of those hits was the walk-off game-winner yesterday that broke the Mets’ losing streak yesterday.
David Wright, 3B Well, hello, David Wright. It’s nice to see you again! Wright hit .370/.414/.630 over these six games.
Chris Young, OF This week included a long slump for Young, who finally broke out of it with a double yesterday against the Phillies.
Eric Young Jr., OF Young only made 13 plate appearances but made the most of them, hitting .385 with four singles, a double, and a couple stolen bases.
