Mets Player Performance Meter: Position Players, August 28-September 3

A quick review of how the Mets’ position players fared over the past week

MLB: New York Mets at Houston Astros Troy Taormina-USA TODAY Sports

The past week did not go exceedingly well for the Mets. They won just one of three games in Cincinnati and were swept in a three-game series in Houston, and there weren’t a ton of great individual performances mixed in. Let’s take a look.

Signed by the Mets over the weekend, veteran outfielder Nori Aoki made a great first impression with a .444/.500/.556 line in ten plate appearances over the course of two games.

Asdrubal Cabrera held his own this week, as he hit .273/.346/.455 with a home run, good for a 111 wRC+ in total.

Gavin Cecchini barely played but didn’t do much at the plate.

Both Yoenis Cespedes and Michael Conforto are officially done for the season.

Travis d'Arnaud continued his poor season as the plate with a 62 wRC+ for the week.

Wilmer Flores broke his own nose when he fouled a ball off his face, but it sounds like he’ll return much sooner than you’d expect after that sort of thing. He hit .250/.250/.500, just a shade under league average at a 92 wRC+, for the week.

Juan Lagares didn’t hit much but made some great defensive plays. We know that guy.

Brandon Nimmo has been an on-base machine lately, but he finished the week at a 100 wRC+ despite his .444 OBP because he hit .211 with no extra-base hits.

Kevin Plawecki didn’t do as well at the plate as he did on the mound. He hit .154/.154/.231.

Jose Reyes had one of his better weeks of the 2017 season with a .333/.500/.444 line, 166 wRC+, and three stolen bases.

Matt Reynolds got ten plate appearances but had an 84 wRC+.

Amed Rosario hit just .235/.278/.294 and is dealing with a bruised finger at the moment.

Dominic Smith hit a home run and had his best overall week at the plate thus far in his very young career with a .292/.320/.500 line and a 115 wRC+.

Outfielder Travis Taijeron had a 79 wRC+ for the week.
