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

The Mets might have a bunch of players on the disabled list, but they managed a pretty good week at the plate as they visited the Padres and Diamondbacks. Their 119 wRC+ for the week was the fourth-best mark in baseball and second-best in the National League. Most of the team's regulars hit very well, and there were only a couple of really poor weeks in the mix.

Player Last Week This Week Comment
Eric Campbell, 3B Campbell finally broke a very long hitless streak and had a good week at the plate on the whole, too.
Darrell Ceciliani, OF In eleven plate appearances, Ceciliani had his first good week in the big leagues.
Michael Cuddyer, LF Cuddyer had a 148 wRC+ for the week and hit a home run. Not bad at all.
Travis d’Arnaud, C On the disabled list for the past several weeks, it sounds like d’Arnaud could return this week.
Lucas Duda, 1B Duda had a terrible week at the plate, something that hadn’t happened for him in a very long time.
Wilmer Flores, SS Flores hit a home run but had a 100 wRC+ for the week.
Curtis Granderson, RF With a couple of home runs and a 142 wRC+, Granderson wasn’t the team’s best hitter, but he was very good.
Dilson Herrera, 2B Like d’Arnaud, Herrera has been on the DL for a while but could be back this week.
Juan Lagares, CF Lagares has been a liability at the plate for much of the season, but he hit .379/.379/.621 over this stretch.
John Mayberry Jr., OF Mayberry played very little, as usual, but hit a home run and .500/.556/.1.125 overall in that time.
Danny Muno, IF -- Back with the team now that Murphy is on the disabled list, Muno didn’t do much in five plate appearances.
Daniel Murphy, 2B/3B Murphy was still hitting very well this week before he hit the disabled list with a quad strain.
Kevin Plawecki, C Plawecki’s struggles continued, as he hit just .200/.294/.333.
Anthony Recker, C Recker managed to be the Mets’ worst hitter among position players for the week with an .091/.091/.091 line.
Ruben Tejada, 3B/SS/2B Tejada’s stretch of good hitting extended another week, as he hit .393/.438/.464. Okay!
David Wright, 3B Wright’s return seems anything but imminent.
