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: After a brutal start, Jose Reyes finished the year strong

The longtime Met played five different positions and had a productive second half. Jose Reyes had an up-and-down year for the Mets—or, more precisely, a year that started down and finished up. After a miserable first half in which he hit .215/.284/.370 (74 wRC+), Reyes rebounded with an excellent .288/.356/.472 (121 wRC+) line the rest of the way. Going into the year, the Mets’ plan was to use Reyes as a utility infielder. Due to a series of injuries and trades, however, Reyes became an everyday player, appearing in 145 games at second, third, and short. He even got a few innings in...

2017 Mets Season Review: Seth Lugo’s season threw him many curves

The king of spin rate showed some signs of cromulence between injuries. The most notable portion of Seth Lugo’s 2017 season may well have taken place before Opening Day. His success in the early rounds of the World Baseball Classic brought some national prominence to a pitcher known to Mets fans for his impressive, seemingly out-of-nowhere late-season contributions to the team’s 2016 Wild Card run, and to the statistically-inclined for the otherworldly spin rate on his curveball. However, many speculated that Lugo’s early exertion pitching for Puerto Rico in the WBC may have...

McCullers came in in relief during the Astros series with Boston, giving up two runs in three innings pitched. McCullers made his first All Star appearance this season, but dealt with several nagging injuries that limited his effectiveness as the season wound down. Gray was also bad in his divisional round matchup with Cleveland, putting up an 8.10 ERA in 3.2...

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...
