Mets Player Performance Meter: Hitters, Week 7

A review of the Mets' hitters over the past seven days.

Brad Mills-USA TODAY Sports

The Mets scored a ton of runs in a couple of games at Yankee Stadium but struggled after that this week. As a team, they hit .229/.290/.369, which translates to an 88 wRC+. So it wasn't exactly a good week. Here's how each of the team's hitters did, though.

Player Last Week This Week Comment
Bobby Abreu, OF Despite not hitting any extra-base hits, Abreu managed a .786 OPS for the week thanks to a .500 OBP. That was good for a 150 wRC+ for the week.
Eric Campbell, 1B When he played, Campbell hit .571/.571/.857. You might say he souped up the Mets’ lineup.
Juan Centeno, C -- Centeno joined the Mets to fill in for Travis d’Arnaud, and in the two games he played, he had a .354 wOBA. There were a couple of defensive miscues, but he hit enough to call it a good week.
Travis d’Arnuad, C d’Arnaud kept struggling at the plate before getting knocked in the head by a backswing and landing on the sevne-day concussion disabled list.
Lucas Duda, 1B It’s been a tough month at the plate for El Dudarino, who neither hit nor walked much. On the bright side, he made some nifty defensive plays against the Yankees.
Wilmer Flores, SS For some reason, Flores only played in one game over the past week, but he did well in it.
Curtis Granderson, RF Granderson continued a strong month with a couple of home runs and an .820 OPS. The .227 batting average on the week isn’t pretty, but it doesn’t mean he did not produce.
Juan Lagares, CF Lagares wasn’t in the starting lineup for a chunk of the week but made the most of the plate appearances he got, posting a .391 wOBA in the process.Oh, and he robbed a home run, too, in the same game that he hit one.
Daniel Murphy, 2B While he wasn’t overwhelmingly dominant like he was the week before, Murphy still hit .321/.375/.429. That’s enough to keep his status at "he’s on fire!"
Anthony Recker, C Recker’s .273 OPS for the week might look okay if it were a batting average.
Ruben Tejada, SS Tejada continued to struggle mightily at the plate, hitting just .143/.217/.190. That’s an 18 wRC+.
David Wright, 3B Wright followed up a pretty good week with a pretty bad one. He hit .276 but didn’t walk much or hit for power, and he struck out in 30 percent of his trips to the plate.
Chris Young, OF Aside from a home run, Young did little at the plate.
Eric Young Jr., OF Aside from a home run, Young Jr. did little at the plate.
