Mets player performance meter: Position players, Week 12

New, 12 comments

It's slightly better! But not by much!

Jason Getz-USA TODAY Sports

A few Mets actually hit this week! A few didn't! After a mini-sweep against the Royals, they split a series in Atlanta. The bats were awake big-time for one game and otherwise were typically quiet. James Loney, Kelly Johnson, and Yoenis Cespedes were the clubhouse leaders.

This meter covers the Mets' games from Monday, June 20, through Sunday, June 26.

Player Last Week This Week Comment
Asdrubal Cabrera He still only got on base at a .308 clip this week, but Cabrera's power shined. His .571 slugging percentage put him at a 135 wRC+. We'll take it.
Yoenis Cespedes Yo's 179 wRC+ paced the team's starters, and he's been the most valuable offensive player on the roster. It's not particularly close, either.
Michael Conforto -- Conforto was demoted to Triple-A to regain his confidence and, hopefully, that wonderful swing of his.
Travis d’Arnaud d'Arnaud had a bad first week back, posting a -34 wRC+. Yeah, that negative is supposed to be there. He'll hopefully play his way back into hitting shape soon.
Alejandro De Aza De Aza is still playing terribly. He's about a league average batter for his career, but his ~100 plate appearances in New York have been a disaster.
Lucas Duda One day.
Wilmer Flores A .235/.316/.294 mark with mediocre (at best) defense isn't gonna cut it.
Curtis Granderson Well, Grandy started walking again this week. Unfortunately, he didn't hit at all, leaving an 89 wRC+ despite a 20.8% walk rate.
Kelly Johnson Kelly Johnson's return has been a major boon to the Mets. A 132 wRC+ in ten at-bats will do nicely.
Ty Kelly -- Kelly was demoted to make room for Logan Verrett.
Juan Lagares Still hurt.
James Loney We're getting close to a James Loney fireball. No, really. In 99 at-bats as a Met, Loney is hitting .300/.357/.444. He also had that ridiculous game-ending dive at first base. He is the prince who was promised.
Brandon Nimmo -- Nimmo went 0-for-4 in his MLB debut.
Kevin Plawecki -- Plawecki was mercifully optioned when Travis d'Arnaud was activated.
Matt Reynolds That's back-to-back solid weeks from Reynolds, who hit his first major league homer and had a team-leading .439 wOBA.
Rene Rivera Rivera stayed on as the backup catcher when d'Arnaud came back, and went 1-for-6.
Neil Walker Slowly returning to form, Walker had just a 58 wRC+. However, he did hit .261 and looked better towards the end of the week. A rebound from Walker would be massive.
David Wright Next week, we'll take David off of here. It'll hurt.
