Lucas Duda maturing as a hitter, but not ready to be Mets' cleanup hitter just yet

The Mets put Lucas Duda in the cleanup spot Thursday, but the move that has been expected since Terry Collins moved the struggling Curtis Granderson out of the spot was just a one-day thing. The Mets manager wanted to get Bobby Abreu his first start since being called up Monday and give Granderson a day off.

Duda may land in cleanup spot ... in month

NEW YORK -- Terry Collins did not say a specific date. But the manager suggested he might give this lineup a month -- with Curtis Granderson No. 2, Daniel Murphy No. 4 and Lucas Duda No. 6 -- before eventually placing Duda in the cleanup spot. Lucas Duda #21 1BNew York Mets 2014 STATS GM19 HR3 RBI9 R8 OBP.350 AVG.264 "We've put a lot on Lucas' plate in the past week," Collins said about the reluctance to use Duda as a cleanup hitter now.

Duda Safe at First: Trade gives Lucas relief, but higher expectations

Ike Davis is gone and it’s Lucas Duda’s time now. With the Mets’ first base job comes great responsibility, and if Duda didn’t know that already, Terry Collins offered him a quick primer before Saturday night’s game against the Braves.

All eyes turn toward Lucas Duda now . . . after one last look at Ike

We thought that trading Ike Davis to the Pirates would put an end to the first-base sideshow for the Mets, or at the very least, quiet some of the drama involving that corner of the infield.

Time for Lucas Duda to prove he belongs

NEW YORK -- Lucas Duda knows his job isn't really safe. It’s a little safer than it was prior to Friday, when the New York Mets traded Ike Davis to the Pittsburgh Pirates and thus made it official that Duda is their chosen first baseman. But if the Mets thought the trade would take away any pressure Duda felt, well, it may not work. "Maybe a little bit," Duda said Saturday afternoon, before the Mets played the Atlanta Braves. "But I still have to produce.

Lucas Duda swings, Jeurys Familia’s opponents don’t, Anthony Recker wins

One of the unsung stars of the early going for the Mets has been the offensive production of Lucas Duda. Slowed by an injury in Spring Training, Duda has also suffered somewhat from management’s refusal to solve the three-headed first baseman issue. But when he’s got on the field, Duda has been a productive offensive player. Among those with at least 20 PA, Duda leads the Mets with a 133 OPS+. We’ve seen a much more aggressive Duda at the plate here in the early going. After a 38.5 Swing% last year, Duda currently sports a 45.8 Swing%, which would be a career high. His current best mark...

Lucas Duda will not play in the OF, says Terry

Terry Collins said Tuesday that he is not planning to use Lucas Duda in the outfield, as a way to deal with recent injuries on the team. Duda played left field Monday, after Curtis Granderson and Juan Lagares were removed from the game. Instead, Eric Young Jr., Kirk Nieuwenhuis and Andrew Brown started for the Mets on […]

Lucas Duda will stay at first base, even with Juan Lagares on DL

Lucas Duda has thrived since being named the Mets' starting first baseman, which is why manager Terry Collins has no plans of moving Duda into the outfield.

TC nixes Duda as outfield consideration

PHOENIX -- Although Lucas Duda finished Monday's series opener against the Arizona Diamondbacks out of necessity in left field, Terry Collins said he is not currently considering having Duda see any additional time in the outfield. Lucas Duda #21 1BNew York Mets 2014 STATS GM14 HR3 RBI7 R6 OBP.359 AVG.306 The Mets instead are using an outfield of Eric Young Jr. in left field, Kirk Nieuwenhuis in center and Andrew Brown in right field on Tuesday night.
