Mets Player Performance Meter: Position Players, Week 16

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

Anthony Gruppuso-USA TODAY Sports

Okay, the pitcher meter was a little greener than this one is overall. But three fireballs in one week is a rare occurrence, and those performances should be enjoyed.

Player Last Week This Week Comment
Eric Campbell, 3B He didn’t play much, didn’t hit much, but he is still very much on the roster.
Yoenis Cespedes, OF -- He's only been with the team for tow games, but he hasn't started to hit as a Met just yet.
Michael Conforto, LF The rookie struggled in limited playing time.
Michael Cuddyer, LF He’s still on the disabled list but could return as soon as this weekend.
Travis d’Arnaud, C He’s back but hasn’t started hitting yet.
Lucas Duda, 1B Forget the fireball rules. Lucas Duda hit seven home runs over the past week with a .474/.524/1.632 line, good for an .865 wOBA and 485 wRC+. That’s about as good a week as any player has had in a long, long time.
Wilmer Flores, SS Wil-mer Flor-es!
Curtis Granderson, RF Matching Duda would have been nearly impossible, but Granderson hit three home runs with a .304/.385/.783 line, which is still outstanding.
Kelly Johnson, 2B/OF Johnson managed just a .167/.231/.250 line for the week.
Juan Lagares, CF Lagares continued not to hit.
Daniel Murphy, 2B/3B Murphy’s monster home run was part of the Mets’ best inning of the year last night, but he still wound up with just a .671 OPS for the week.
Kevin Plawecki, C He did it kind of quietly, but Plawecki hit .333/.455/.333 in three games.
Anthony Recker, C Recker got just one game and went 0-for-3, and he is back in Vegas now that d’Arnaud is back on the roster.
Ruben Tejada, SS Tejada has been a cromulent hitter this year, but he was not a good one this week.
Juan Uribe, 3B Uribe had an 87 wRC+ for the week, which is a little less than ideal.
David Wright, 3B Is there a light at the end of the tunnel? Wright could be playing in rehab games soon.
