Mets Player Performance Meter: Position players, June 14-20
It was a tale of two series for the Mets this week, who played a whopping eight games over the course of seven days, due to Saturday doubleheader in Washington DC. The first series of the week came against the red-hot Cubs and the Mets entered the week having taken two out of three from a powerhouse Padres team. They kept the good vibes going at Citi Field, taking three out of four from the Cubs. But, they were shut out in the final game of that series and with the exception of Francisco Lindor big day on Saturday afternoon, the offense stayed dormant as they hit the road, resulting in the Mets dropping three out of four to the struggling Nationals at Nats Park https://www.newprostoreonline.com/Seth_Lugo_Pillow_Cover-355. Wel start with Francisco Lindor big game on Saturday afternoon, in which he went 2-for-4 with two home runs and five RBIs. It was easily his best offensive performance in a single game in a Mets uniform and it carried him to a 117 wRC+ overall for the week over 31 plate appearances. He had just one RBI the rest of the week, but he did walk four times in addition to collecting six hits. He also stole a base. His 0. 2 fWAR for the week is second among Mets hitters. The leader in that category is Dominic Smith, who accrued 0. 3 fWAR this week, bouncing back in a big way from his poop emoji performance last week. Smith also leads the team in wRC+ , Brandon Drury days may have been numbered upon the return of Jeff McNeil. However, it seems Drury will live to fight another day , it was one of the few highlights of a pretty bad week for the Polar Bear. That home run was one of just four hits in 30 plate appearances for the week for Alonso and the only extra base hit and only run scored Patrick Mazeika Pillow Cover. He walked three times and drove in four runs, but posted an unsightly 35 wRC+ for the week. His big highlight defensively also came in a game the Mets lost https://www.newprostoreonline.com/Jose_Martinez_T_shirt-58, making a sparkling play behind Marcus Stroman in Thursday game.
