Mets Player Performance Meter: Position Players, Week 14

New, comments

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

Noah K. Murray-USA TODAY Sports

Speaking strictly in terms of the meter, the Mets had an uneven week. But given the downright terrible nature of most of their weeks lately, the amount of green seen below is a sight for sore eyes. And even an average-ish lineup should serve the Mets just fine, as their pitching is very, very good.

Player Last Week This Week Comment
Eric Campbell, 3B It’s been a very long time since Campbell got a green arrow, but he hit .333/.429/.833 with one home run. It was just seven plate appearances, but that’ll do.
Michael Cuddyer, LF Cuddyer only played in three games, but he hit .417/.417/.667 with a home run. That is good.
Travis d’Arnaud, C There's no real update on d'Arnaud yet, which is not ideal.
Lucas Duda, 1B Duda hit two home runs and had a 102 wRC+ despite getting on base at just a .250 clip. More importantly, go follow @wefollowlucasduda on Instagram.
Wilmer Flores, SS .227/.292/.227 for the week. Yikes.
Curtis Granderson, RF For several weeks, Granderson was hitting really well. Lately, though, that has not been the case.
Juan Lagares, CF Lagares is having a bad year as a hitter, and the last week was no exception.
John Mayberry Jr., OF Too many strikeouts and a bad OBP.
Johnny Monell, C In a couple of games, Monell had a 72 wRC+.
Danny Muno, IF -- He only got one plate appearance, but he doubled in it.
Daniel Murphy, 2B/3B Though he hit a home run, Murphy managed just a .158/.283/.316 line with a 44 wRC+, putting him among the worst of the regulars as a hitter.
Kirk Nieuwenhuis, OF -- The fireball is typically used for long stretches of good performance, but three home runs in one game and a .400/.538/1.400 line for the week is the sort of thing for which you break tradition.
Kevin Plawecki, C If it has looked like Plawecki has been better at the plate lately, well, he has. He only had fourteen plate appearances, but he had a 124 wRC+ in them. That’s the first time he’s been above league average over the course of a week in a while.
Ruben Tejada, SS Tejada was roughly league average at the plate. Okay.
David Wright, 3B David Wright may or may not be doing some sort of activities resembling baseball.
