New, 25 comments

A review of the Mets' position players over the past seven days.

Mets hitters have not been great this season overall, but they just had a pretty good week. There's a lot of green on this meter, which is always a good thing to see. The Mets weren't exactly the Blue Jays at the plate, but they were the sixth-best team in baseball by wRC+ over the past week, which is nothing to sneeze at.

Player Last Week This Week Comment
Eric Campbell, 3B Campbell hit .059 with no walks and no extra-base hits over the course of the week.
Darrell Ceciliani, OF He hit his first major league home run and raked overall, hitting .417/.462/.750 in 13 plate appearances.
Michael Cuddyer, LF Cuddyer had a few good weeks recently, but this wasn’t one, even though he did have a walk-off hit in one of the Mets’ victories.
Travis d’Arnaud, C Coming back from the disabled list, d’Arnaud picked up where he left off, hitting .294/.333/.588 with a home run. His continued success would be a significant plus for the Mets the rest of the way.
Lucas Duda, 1B By wRC+, Duda wasn’t the Mets’ best hitter for the week, but his 146 mark was still very, very good.
Wilmer Flores, SS Flores had one of his better weeks as a hitter, as evidenced by his .250/.375/.500 line.
Curtis Granderson, RF He didn’t hit any home runs, but Granderson sure did hit.
Dilson Herrera, 2B Like d’Arnaud, Herrera came back from the disabled lst looking fantastic. He was even better at the plate, hitting .308/.471/.615 with a home run.
Juan Lagares, CF With a great week at the plate, Lagares pulled his hitting line for the season significantly closer to league average. It’s been an encouraging couple of weeks for the center fielder, who had mostly been a liability at the plate earlier in the season.
John Mayberry Jr., OF He only played a little, but Mayberry hit a home run and had a 329 wRC+ for the week.
Danny Muno, IF Muno continued to bounce back and forth between Vegas and the big leagues. In his time with the Mets, he didn’t hit much.
Daniel Murphy, 2B/3B Murphy had been on a good run for a while, but a quad injury has him on the disabled list. It’s been a down year for Murphy’s leg muscles.
Kevin Plawecki, C -- Plawecki dealt with dizziness and did not play over the past week. But he should play this week since the Mets kept him on the major league roster and optioned Anthony Recker to Las Vegas.
Anthony Recker, C Recker struggled at the plate and is now in Triple-A for the first time since he had a brief stint there in August 2013.
Ruben Tejada, SS Well, Tejada wasn’t going to hit like that forever.
David Wright, 3B No significant updates here.
