Mets Player Performance Meter: Position Players, Week 24

A review of the Mets' position players over the past seven days.

Noah K. Murray-USA TODAY Sports

After a week that featured far too many red arrows on the meter, the Mets came back and hit very well overall. There were still some poor performances, of course, but those who hit well hit really well this time around. Oh, and the Mets clinched the National League East in the process.

Player Last Week This Week Comment
Eric Campbell, IF He only played a little bit, but Campbell had a 1.550 OPS in that time.
Yoenis Cespedes, OF He didn’t hit any home runs, but Cespedes had a 152 wRC+ for the week. If the worrying about his slump the week before didn’t seem obviously silly and shortsighted at the time, perhaps it does now.
Michael Conforto, LF/1B Conforto slugged .458 but had just a .250 OBP while doing so.
Michael Cuddyer, LF Cuddyer hit just .286/.250/.429 for the week.
Travis d’Arnaud, C d’Arnaud remained in a funk with a .150/.227/.150 line. He’s been one of the best-hitting catchers in the game when healthy this year, but the last two weeks have hurt him a bit in that regard.
Lucas Duda, 1B Duda had been dormant for a little while but hit three home runs with a .353/.542/1.059 line. Is that good?
Wilmer Flores, SS Flores really struggled at the plate in 12 plate appearances.
Curtis Granderson, RF With a couple of home runs and a very Curtis Granderson line—.240/.345/.520—this was a good week.
Dilson Herrera, 2B Herrera only played a little bit but raked when he did, hitting a home run in the process.
Kelly Johnson, 2B/OF Johnson has mostly had good weeks with the Mets, but this was not one of the them.
Juan Lagares, CF With a .900 OPS in limited playing time, Lagares had a good week. He still seems preferable to Eric Young Jr. for the postseason roster from here.
Johnny Monell, C -- Monell made one plate appearance but made an out in it.
Daniel Murphy, 2B/3B With a .480/.500/.880 line for the week, Murphy earned himself a fast fireball here.
Kirk Nieuwenhuis, OF Nieuwenhuis did not reach base in seven attempts.
Kevin Plawecki, C Thanks to the home run he hit yesterday, he slugged .500. But his .125 OBP drags him down to red arrow status here.
Anthony Recker, C Recker failed to reach base in six trips to the plate.
Ruben Tejada, SS Tejada had another quietly-above-average week as a hitter. Among shortstops with at least 200 plate appearances, his 98 wRC+ ranks 15th out of 43 players in baseball.
Juan Uribe, 3B Uribe hit, but he didn’t play much because of a chest injury that might affect his availability in the NLDS.
David Wright, 3B Watching David Wright hit as well as anyone could have reasonably expected in his return from his long stint on the disabled list has been a treat. He had a 1.109 OPS for the week.
Eric Young Jr., OF Young had a -100 wRC+ and stole a base.
