The Mets bombarded the A's with ten runs on Tuesday night to begin the last week of play, but they were a little bit up and down from there. In total, the team hit .290/.330/.442 this week, good for a 119 wRC+ that was the third-best mark in baseball. Their 26 runs scored, however, ranked right in the middle of the pack at 15th.
|Bobby Abreu, OF
|Abreu only made five trips to the plate and managed to get on base two of those times, once with a single and once by drawing a walk.
|Eric Campbell, 1B
|With regular playing time in David Wright’s place, Campbell hit kind of like David Wright with a .409/.409/.545 line for the week.
|Travis d’Arnaud, C
|Since his return from Vegas on Tuesday, d’Arnaud has hit .368/.400/.579 with a home run. That’s pretty, pretty good.
|Lucas Duda, 1B
|In twenty plate appearances, Duda simply raked, posting a .316/.350/.684 line with a .444 wOBA and 192 wRC+ for the week.
|Wilmer Flores, SS
|Flores had only two plate appearances this week before he was demoted to make space for Juan Lagares on the roster.
|Curtis Granderson, OF
|A great month came to a screeching halt with a miserable series in Pittsburgh. Granderson had just a .544 OPS on the week.
|Juan Lagares, CF
|Lagares finally came back, but his bat was missing. He had a .206 wOBA and 28 wRC+ in four games.
|Daniel Murphy, 2B
|With a .333 average, .333 on-base percentage, and. 407 slugging percentage, it was a perfectly cromulent week for a second baseman who epitomizes cromulence.
|Kirk Nieuwenhuis, OF
|Nieuwenhuis only made six trips to the plate—not a surprise given the Mets’ very crowded outfield—but did very well in them.
|Anthony Recker, C
|With a .600 OPS on the week, Recker wasn’t exactly great.
|Taylor Teagarden, C
|Placed on the disabled list when d’Arnaud returned, Teagarden might get another shot with the Mets if Recker does not produce by the time he is healthy.
|Ruben Tejada, SS
|Everyone’s favorite shortstop hit .348/.444/.348 for the week. That’s about as good as it gets for Tejada.
|David Wright, 3B
|Wright didn’t hit much in the three games he played, but his injury is far more concerning than a three-game sample of hitting stats. Let’s hope it really is as minor as his Saturday diagnosis says.
|Chris Young, OF
|Young only hit .200 on the week, but he slugged .800 for a staggering .600 isolated slugging. He did so by hitting three home runs, which gave him a .441 wOBA and 190 wRC+ for the week.
|Eric Young Jr., OF
|Like Tejada, Young was at his personal best this week, with a .333 average and .412 on-base percentage. Unlike Tejada, he managed a tiny bit of power with a .400 SLG.
