Mets Player Performance Meter: Position Players, Week 22

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

Dale Zanine-USA TODAY Sports

The Mets just finished a road trip in which they won the final seven games. Their hitting played a huge part in that, especially as they came back three times against the Nationals to effectively lock up the National League East.

Player Last Week This Week Comment
Eric Campbell, IF -- He didn't make any plate appearances this week.
Yoenis Cespedes, OF Matt Harvey said Cespedes is ready for his promotion to the next level of baseball, and that seems accurate.
Michael Conforto, LF/1B Coforto stayed hot and has continued to hit as well as even the most optimistic Mets fans could have expected.
Michael Cuddyer, LF He only made two plate appearances, but with two singles, he had a 2.000 OPS for the week.
Travis d’Arnaud, C He wasn’t quite as dominant a hitter as the week before, but d’Arnaud still did very well.
Lucas Duda, 1B Duda managed a .400 OBP in his return from the DL but didn’t hit much.
Wilmer Flores, SS Flores was a league-average hitter for the week.
Curtis Granderson, RF Granderson bounced back just fine from a down week and crushed it at the plate over the Mets’ seven-game winning streak.
Kelly Johnson, 2B/OF Johnson only had 12 plate appearances but hit .455/.500/1.091 in them.
Juan Lagares, CF He barely played, but he hit a ton when he did.
Daniel Murphy, 2B/3B Despite a huge, game-tying home run in the ninth inning yesterday, Murphy had a bad week with just a 57 wRC+.
Kirk Nieuwenhuis, OF The left-handed hitter raked in his part-time play and hit a huge pinch-hit home run.
Kevin Plawecki, C Plawecki had a very nice week, something he hasn’t done often as a hitter in his major league career thus far.
Anthony Recker, C -- The catcher did not play.
Ruben Tejada, SS Tejada was slightly below league average with his bat, but that’s not the end of the world for a shortstop.
Juan Uribe, 3B Like trade-mate Johnson, Uribe excelled in limited playing time.
David Wright, 3B Wright had a tough week at the plate, hitting just .182/.250/.318.
Eric Young Jr., OF Used exclusively as a pinch-runner, Young scored four runs on the week.
