Mets Player Performance Meter: Hitters, Week 19

New, 17 comments

It was a very ugly week at the plate for the Mets.

Anthony Gruppuso-USA TODAY Sports

It's almost tough to describe just how terrible the Mets were at the plate over the past seven days. Collectively, the team hit .184/.256/.249, which translated to a 47 wRC+, the second-worst mark in the game—thanks only to Arizona's even more extreme ineptitude at the plate. There were only a couple of highlights here, so before you look down the list of arrows here, you've been warned.

Player Last Week This Week Comment
Eric Campbell, 1B Despite slugging a respectable .444, mainly because of his big home run, Campbell managed just a 63 wRC+ for the week.
Travis d’Arnaud, C Simply put, d’Arnaud was the only Mets regular to perform well at the plate this week. He hit .294/.368/.529. He has been the brightest spot of the Mets’ second half.
Matt den Dekker, OF In 21 plate appearances, den Dekker managed a decent .333 on-base percentage thanks to a high walk rate but still turned in a poor week overall.
Lucas Duda, 1B The Mets’ most productive hitter this year, Duda went from so-so in the previous week to not good this week. At least he made some nice plays in the field!
Wilmer Flores, SS Speaking of nice plays in the field, Flores actually made some of his own. Unfortunately, he still didn’t hit.
Curtis Granderson, OF While Travis d’Arnaud was the only good regular Mets hitter, Granderson was undoubtedly the worst. He hit .069/.129/.069 for a -43 wRC+.
Juan Lagares, CF Lagares wasn’t much better than Granderson.
Daniel Murphy, 2B I’m with 28 wRC+.
Kirk Nieuwenhuis, OF Nieuwenhuis rarely played but did not reach base in four trips to the plate.
Anthony Recker, C Though he slugged .571, Recker struck out too much and got on base at just a .143 clip in his limited playing time.
Ruben Tejada, SS He only had five plate appearances, but Tejada hit .500 with a .600 on-base percentage. Huzzah!
David Wright, 3B .286 average, alright. .348 on-base percentage, not bad. .286 slugging, sigh.
Eric Young Jr., OF Eric "328 wRC+ in 2 PA" Young Jr.
