A review of the Mets' hitters over the past seven days.

Brad Penner-USA TODAY Sports

The Mets' offense hasn't been good this year overall, but things went pretty well over the past week, which included a sweep of the Phillies but just one win against the Marlins in a three-game series. In total, Mets hitters had a 120 wRC+, the sixth-best mark in baseball over the past week of play. That's much higher than they usually rank, and sure, a good chunk of that production came against the Phillies. But it's at least mildly encouraging.

Player Last Week This Week Comment
Eric Campbell, IF Campbell neither played nor hit much.
Darrell Ceciliani, OF Ceciliani did not reach base in five plate appearances.
Michael Cuddyer, LF For all the negativity surrounding Cuddyer, he’s hit pretty damn well lately. This week, he hit .368/.455/.737 with a couple of home runs.
Travis d’Arnaud, C d’Arnaud had a setback in his rehab from a broken finger in the form of a bone bruise on his wrist. Get well soon, Travis.
Lucas Duda, 1B Duda continues to be one of the best hitters in the game, and he raked again this week: .333/.462/1.000 with 4 home runs.
Wilmer Flores, SS Flores hit two home runs but posted a .200/.192/.440 line for the week. That’s one of the more bizarre lines you’ll see for a hitter.<00/td>
Curtis Granderson, RF With a home run and a .370 OBP, Granderson was just good enough for the green arrow here.
Dilson Herrera, 2B The second baseman is still on the disabled list with a broken finger of his own.
Juan Lagares, CF It was a brutal week at the plate for the center fielder, who by all accounts is playing at less than 100 percent health.
John Mayberry Jr., OF Mayberry followed up one of his better weeks as a met with a poor one, but he nly made six trips to the plate.
Daniel Murphy, 2B/3B Murphy continues to get back to being Murphy. With another good week at the plate, he’s at a 97 wRC+ for the season, inching ever nearer to his career mark of 108.
Daniel Muno, IF -- Muno got a bit of playing time since rejoining the Mets but had a -17 wRC+ in it.
Kevin Plawecki, C This week was better than the past few, as Plawecki had a decent .333 OBP, but the Mets are still missing d’Arnaud right now.
Anthony Recker, C In two games, he struck out in half of his plate appearances and had no extra-base hits.
Ruben Tejada, SS/3B In limited playing time, Tejada was very good at the plate, with a 195 wRC+ in 13 plate appearances.
David Wright, 3B The Mets’ captain will be with the team, though still very much on the disabled list, tomorrow night in San Diego, at which point there figures to be some new details on the nature of his back injury.
