Mets Player Performance Meter: Hitters, Week 22

New, 27 comments

A review of the Mets' hitters over the past week.

Steve Mitchell-USA TODAY Sports

As far as weeks go this year, the last one—from September 1 through 7—was one of the better ones of the year for the Mets at the plate. That might not be saying much given the low standards, but the only red arrows came from players who barely played over that stretch.

Player Last Week This Week Comment
Eric Campbell, 1B Campbell went 1-for-4 over the course of three games.
Juan Centeno, C -- Centeno went 1-for-1. Huzzah!
Travis d’Arnaud, C d’Arnaud hit .550/.609/.850 for the week. Yep, you read that right. That’s a 313 wRC+.
Matt den Dekker, OF For the second straight week, den Dekker got on base at a very good clip.
Lucas Duda, 1B Despite a .190 batting average, Duda managed a .747 OPS for the week.
Wilmer Flores, SS The Mets seem to be seriously considering Flores an option at shortstop for next year. He’d have to hit at least as well as he did this week—.261/.292/.478—to make that work.
Curtis Granderson, OF Given how things have gone for Granderson lately, his pair of home runs and .904 OPS were a sight for sore eyes.
Dilson Herrera, 2B With two home runs and a triple to his credit, the 20-year-old had a .333 OBP and .600 SLG for the week. Very nice.
Juan Lagares, CF Lagares’s .840 OPS for the week was one of his best in a single week this year.
Daniel Murphy, 2B Murphy is expected back as soon as today.
Kirk Nieuwenhuis, OF In 10 plate appearances, the outfielder had a .797 wOBA and 433 wRC+. Like d’Arnaud’s stats, those are not typos.
Anthony Recker, C Recker played in one game, and had one hit—a home run. That’s been the norm for a while now.
Josh Satin, IF -- Satin reached base once in two plate appearances. #HAIL?
Ruben Tejada, SS He barely played, but he went 1-for-3 with a double and a hit-by-pitch when he did.
David Wright, 3B While a .321/.310/.429 slash line isn’t quite vintage David Wright, it’s pretty decent.
Eric Young Jr., OF Young went 0-for-2 at the plate and 1-for-2 in stolen base attempts, one of which came at a particularly poor time for the Mets.
