It’s been a couple of weeks since we searched the league for former Mets to see how they are doing! Let’s take a trip down memory lane:
Tampa Bay Rays:
Adam Kolarek: Adam is off to amazing start this season pitching in 9 games and 5.2 innings allowing no runs from 6 hits and a walk. He has a 0.00 ERA, 2.79 FIP and 1.235 WHIP. The Rays as a team are off to a fantastic start this year.
Oliver Perez: Oliver has allowed 4 runs over 4.0 innings in 7 games from 5 hits and two walks. Not great. Not great.
Kevin Plawecki: The Mets were having some issues this season with back up catchers between Nido and d’Arnaud’s return from injury. Plawecki though is also having a tough time hitting .125/.222/.313 over 18 PAs.
Michael Fulmer: Still on the injured list. This isn’t a surprise.
Kansas City Royals:
Lucas Duda: Lucas is having a rough go of it with the Royals early on this season. He is hitting .174/.333/.348 over 30 PAs. The difference between batting average and on base is positive, probably due to his 6 walks, but the slugging is the disappointing part of his game right now.
Addison Reed: Still on the injured list. This isn’t a surprise.
Collin McHugh: Collin is still good! He has allowed 5 ER over 17.0 innings in three games this season with a 2.65 ERA, 2.20 FIP, 0.882 WHIP and a 164 ERA+.
Joe Smith: On the Injured List. Hasn’t pitched yet this season
Kyle Dowdy: Dowdy is still with the Rangers on the major league squad. He has pitched in 3 games and 6.2 innings this season allowing 5 runs, 4 earned from 5 hits and 4 walks.
Asdrubal Cabrera: It hasn’t been a great season for our old second basemen. In 56 PAs he has hit .216/.268/.549.
Yusmeiro Petit: Petit is off to another great season out of the pen. In 8 games and 8.0 innings he has allowed only 2 runs, a 2.25 ERA, 4.89 FIP, 0.750 WHIP and 196 ERA+
Chasen Bradford: Recently landed on the Injured List, before that
Gerson Baustista: Still on the Injured List
Anthony Swarzak: Recently off the injured list and has done really well in the five games he’s been in. He’s allowed no runs and only 2 hits over 4.1 innings.
Jay Bruce: Bruce is just being extra Bruce with the Mariners. He’s hitting .169/.265/.559 over 68 PAs with only 10 hits this season but 7 of the 10 hits have been homers. Its outrageous really.
Los Angeles Angels:
Matt Harvey: Since his first start Matt Harvey has had a rough go of it as an Angel allowing 16 runs over 14.1 innings now leading to a 10.05 ERA, 7.12 FIP, 1.953 WHIP and a 44 ERA+.
Hansel Robles: Hansel is being average right now with the Angles and for him that’s a godo thing to be. He has allowed 4 runs from 8 hits and a homer over 7.1 innings while striking out 11.
Neil Walker: Walker is trying to re-establish himself this season and the start he is having the Marlins doesn’t inspire confidence posting a .231/.298/.423 line over 57 PA’s.
Curtis Granderson: Our favorite Curtis Granderson is struggling more than Walker in Miami. Over 55 PA’s Curtis is hitting .152/.273/.304. Granted, he is half a decade older than Walker.
Darren O’Day: Still on the Injured List.
St. Louis Cardinals:
John Gant: Gant has turned a major corner this year. He has allowed 1 run over 11.2 innings in 9 games this year leading to a 0.77 ERA, 4.51 FIP, 0.857 WHIP and 569 ERA+ (actually).
Merandy Gonzalez: Still not on the active roster for the Cardinals
Bobby Wahl: Still on the injured list, you already knew this
Los Angeles Dodgers:
Justin Turner: Turner is off to another fine season with the Dodgers hitting .302/.387/.333 over 75 PA’s. If this holds true, granted it’s still early in the season, it would be his third season in a row batting above .300.
Wilmer Flores: Wilmer is seeing semi-regular playing time and is having a a rough go of it hitting .195/.250/.268 over 44 PA’s.
Daniel Murphy: Still on the IL for the foreseeable future
