2017 Mets Season Review: Nori Aoki brought consistency late in the season

2017 Mets Season Review: Nori Aoki brought consistency late in the season

The outfielder did exactly what you thought he would After Michael Conforto and Yoenis Cespedes went down with injuries and Curtis Granderson and Jay Bruce were traded away, the Mets needed someone to play the outfield for the last month of the season. Enter Norichika Aoki. Aoki was signed by the Mets on September 2, and he almost immediately did what he’s always done over his career: played a league-average outfield. Aoki was released by the Toronto Blue Jays on August 29, having been traded from the Houston Astros a month or so earlier. He hit .284/.371/.373 over the course of his 27...

2017 Mets Season Review: Michael Conforto went from question mark to all-star to…?

2017 Mets Season Review: Michael Conforto went from question mark to all-star to…?

Young outfielder seemed poised for stardom before devastating late-season shoulder injury.     Michael Conforto entered spring training seemingly the victim of the front office’s irrational exuberance as to the trade value of one Jay Bruce and Terry Collins’s perpetual aversion to players on the front nine of their career. After bursting on the scene in his first full season in 2015, contributing a 2.1 fWAR over 56 games down the stretch and having a memorable World Series, Conforto did struggle in 2016, but in any rational situation, the former first-round pick and perceived...

Jay Bruce returns to New York and suddenly can’t hit
