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

The good news is that the Mets scored eight runs yesterday and beat the Dodgers. The bad news is that the team still had a pretty poor week at the plate. Things were a little bit better, though, as two regulars hit well, whereas only one regular had done so in the previous week.

Player Last Week This Week Comment
Eric Campbell, 3B Campbell didn’t do much in the handful of plate appearances he made.
Darrell Ceciliani, OF The rookie outfielder had a tough week and hit .083 with no walks or extra-base hits.
Michael Cuddyer, LF Cuddyer did not reachbase in ten plate appearances. Yikes.
Travis d’Arnaud, C d’Arnaud hasn’t begun baseball activity yet, which is not exactly encouarging.
Lucas Duda, 1B Duda’s numbers on the season are still very good, but he’s in a pretty prolonged slump right now.
Wilmer Flores, 2B/SS Flores was the Mets’ best hitter for the week by a pretty wide margin, as he hit .478/.500/.609.
Curtis Granderson, RF The team’s hottest hitter a week ago, Granderson was in quite a funk this week.
Juan Lagares, CF Lagares continued to struggle at the plate, though he at least struggled a little bit less this time than he has in some other weeks.
John Mayberry Jr., OF Mayberry had a 133 wRC+ for the week in nine plate appearances. That’s much better than what he had done in recent weeks.
Johnny Monell, C Monell hit just .250 but had a .400 OBP and 103 wRC+, just enough to get the green arrow over the blue one.
Daniel Murphy, 2B/3B There were no surprises in Murphy’s return from the disabled list, as evidenced by his .320/.370/.400 line for the week.
Kevin Plawecki, C With a .267/.250/.333 line for the week, Plawecki is now hitting just .230/.273/.311 with the Mets so far this year.
Ruben Tejada, SS Among the regulars, Tejada was one of the worst hitters, posting a 29 wRC+ for the week. Remember when he was hitting over .300?
David Wright, 3B There were some mentions of the possibility of a return to baseball activity in the near future, but there is still no timetable for Wright’s return.
