Mets Player Performance Meter: Hitters, Week 17—The Dude continues to abide

New, 47 comments

A few Mets hitters were very good this week. A few were very bad.

As has often been the case with the hitter meters this year, there are plenty of red arrows below. On the upside, there aren't quite as many as there were last week. Over the last week, the team went 3-3, and its lineup was in all-or-nothing mode, scoring seven, zero, eleven, one, four, and zero runs in those games, respectively.

Player Last Week This Week Comment
Bobby Abreu, OF In extremely limited playing time—three plate appearances, to be precise—Abreu didn’t reach base and grounded into a double play.
Eric Campbell, 1B While he hit .286 on the week, Campbell didn’t draw any walks or have an extra-base hits.
Travis d’Arnaud, C Despite a paltry .250 on-base percentage, d’Arnaud managed an .806 OPS for the week thanks to a home run and three doubles.
Lucas Duda, 1B With two more home runs, Duda stayed hot, as he hit an impressive .286/.375/.714. He now has a 145 wRC+ for the season, the fifteenth-best mark in baseball among qualified hitters.
Wilmer Flores, SS/2B In nine trips to the plate, Flores hit .333 and slugged .556. Perhaps this little run of success will earn him regular playing time.
Curtis Granderson, OF Granderson stayed ice cold this week, with one double and four walks the highlights of his performance at the plate.
Juan Lagares, CF Well, hello, Juan hittin’ Lagares. The center fielder, who made several outstanding plays in the field, hit .381/.381/.429. That’s more than sufficient for him.
Daniel Murphy, 2B Murphy returned to form with a .900 OPS. That’s his best week in a while and a welcome sight.
Anthony Recker, C He only played in one game, but he put up an 0-for-3 in it.
Ruben Tejada, SS With a .526 OPS on the week, Tejada still managed to bat in the two hole yesterday against Madison Bumgarner. That probably didn’t make much of a difference in the game, but it was a head scratcher.
David Wright, 3B Move along, nothing to see here.
Chris Young, OF After a couple of good weeks in a row, Young hit just .111/.111/.111. Yikes.
Eric Young Jr., OF Like Abreu and Recker, Young failed to reach base in very limited playing time.
