The Mets have had plenty of poor weeks at the plate this season, but thanks to a few good individual performances, they avoided ranking among the worst offenses in the league over the past seven days. There's still plenty of ugliness in this player meter, but there were a few good things to sprinkle in to avoid the player meter's version of a red wedding.

Player Last Week This Week Comment
Bobby Abreu, OF -- Back from the minors, Abreu went 2-for-3.
Eric Campbell, 1B Campbell played a little bit but hit a lot less than a little bit.
Juan Centeno, C -- He’s on the roster, but Centeno did not make a plate appearance over the past week.
Travis d’Arnaud, C Coming off a strong week, d’Arnaud had a stinker, hitting just .190/.190/.286.
Matt den Dekker, OF While he’s been sidelined with an injury for the past several days, den Dekker hit well in the five plate appearances he got earlier in the week.
Lucas Duda, 1B Duda’s 118 wRC+ for the week was not spectacular, but it was good enough.
Wilmer Flores, SS It’s probably still too soon to write off Wilmer Flores as a major league hitter, but his performance over the past seven days didn’t make his case any stronger. He hit just .143/.174/.381.
Curtis Granderson, OF It’s been a long time since Granderson had a week like the one he just had, as he hit .304/.385/.522. He still hasn’t had a good season, but perhaps he can salvage it a bit more before it’s over.
Dilson Herrera, 2B It was an ugly week at the plate for the 20-year-old.
Juan Lagares, CF While his 101 wRC+ for the week would typically be just fine given his defensive play, Lagares made a couple of rare mistakes in the outfield.
Daniel Murphy, 2B Back from the disabled list, Murphy hit just .111/.200/.111. That’s not good.
Kirk Nieuwenhuis, OF As was the case the week before, Nieuwenhuis got just seven plate appearances over the past seven days. This time, he went hitless with one walk.
Anthony Recker, C He started one game and played another, but Recker managed to hit his one home run for the week once again.
Josh Satin, IF Satin went 0-for-2 with a walk.
Ruben Tejada, SS Tejada barely played but had a -10 wRC+ when he did.
David Wright, 3B With his shoulder still not right, Wright’s season officially came to an end. Here’s to a resurgent 2015 season.
Eric Young Jr., OF Perhaps this biggest anomaly of this mid-September week of meaningless baseball, Young hit .389/.421/.500, a slash line good for a 166 wRC+ over that span. Just don’t be on that happening again.
