Mets Player Performance Meter: Hitters, Week 11

A review of the Mets' position players over the last seven days.

Robert Deutsch-USA TODAY Sports

It was not a great week for the Mets’ offense. The team scored just 17 runs over the last seven days, the third-lowest total in baseball. Perhaps the good news here is that the Cardinals, who the Mets visit starting tonight, scored just fourteen runs. But the poor run total for the Mets was in line with the way they hit; their 62 wRC+ was the fourth-worst mark in baseball this week. There were a few standout performances here, but seven Mets position players posted less than a 10 wRC+ for the week.

Player Last Week This Week Comment
Bobby Abreu, OF Coming off a poor week at the plate, the veteran hit .438/.474/.563 for the week. That gives him a .371 wOBA and 140 wRC+ in 91 plate appearances on the season.
Andrew Brown, OF In ten plate appearances, Brown struck out five times, didn’t walk, and had just two singles.
Eric Campbell, 1B Soup had six plate appearances but got on base just once with a single.
Matt den Dekker, OF With a .133/.188/.200 line, this week wasn’t much better than the one before it for den Dekker.
Lucas Duda, 1B The Dude didn’t hit or get on base at a great clip this week. If there’s a silver lining here, it’s that he still managed to slug .409.
Wilmer Flores, SS Flores didn’t play much, but he also didn’t hit much.
Curtis Granderson This was probably Granderson’s greatest week with the Mets, as he hit .400/.600/.800—that’s a .568 wOBA and 275 wRC+—while striking out in just 6.7 percent of his plate appearances.
Juan Lagares, CF The defensively-gifted center fielder is still working his way back from an injury, though his return does not sound imminent.
Daniel Murphy, 2B Although he only had a .227 average, Murphy got on base at a .333 clip and slugged .409 with one home run. That’s nothing special, but in the context of offense in 2014, it’s a good enough week for the green arrow.
Anthony Recker, C There weren’t any "wrecking ball" headlines this week, as the catcher had a 6 wRC+.
Taylor Teagarden, C -- Promoted to take the place of Travis d’Arnaud, Teagarden hit a valuable grand slam but didn’t hit much otherwise.
Ruben Tejada, SS He struck out a bunch, but Tejada managed a .250/.294/.375 slash line, which while not impressive was also not a nightmare for a shortstop.
David Wright, 3B Please come back soon, real David Wright.
Chris Young, OF It was a brutal week for Young, whose is now hitting .196/.283/.313 on the season. The low batting average isn’t particularly concerning, but his .117 ISO this year is significantly lower than the .179 he posted last year.
Eric Young Jr., OF Though he spent all of the past week on the disabled list, Young is expected to rejoin the Mets today.
