The Mets have reshaped their roster over the last year and change, saying goodbye to some familiar faces (some beloved, some not) in the process. Every week, we'll take a look at how some of those former Mets are performing with their new teams...
Asdrubal Cabrera, Free Agent (formerly of Rangers)
The Rangers announced they were designating Cabrera for assignment on Wednesday, following a disappointing 93 games with the team. The former Mets infielder did hit 12 home runs, but was hitting only .235/.318/.393. The team requested unconditional release waivers, and Cabrera will hope to catch on elsewhere.
Jarred Kelenic, Mariners (minors)
With a hit in his first at-bat on Sunday, Kelenic extended his hitting streak with High-A Modesto to six games. In 41 games since his promotion, the 20-year-old is hitting .270/.343/.454 with five homers and 18 RBI.
Justin Dunn, Mariners (minors)
Dunn got knocked around in his last start for Double-A Arkansas and was saddled with the loss for the first time since June 13, a span of seven starts. He pitched five innings, giving up five runs on nine hits, striking out five. His three walks were also tied for the most he's allowed in a game this season. Overall, he's 6-4 with a 3.59 ERA, walking 31 and striking out 118 in 100.1 innings.
Jay Bruce, Phillies
Bruce remains on the 10-day IL since July 17 after suffering a right oblique strain. Before being injured, the left-handed hitter was just 3-for-23 over his previous seven games, though all three of those hits were homers. The 32-year-old is slashing .256/.273/.564 with 10 homers and 29 RBI in 117 at-bats this season.
Kevin Plawecki, Indians
Plawecki has a .218/.293/.345 slash line with two home runs and 12 RBI in just 123 plate appearances with Cleveland this season. He has hits in three of the last four games in which he's appeared.
Curtis Granderson, Marlins
Granderson had a pair of doubles in the Marlins loss to the Twins on July 30, but generally has struggled in his first season with Miami. The 38-year-old is hitting .181/.271/.358 with nine homers and 28 RBI on the season.
Travis d'Arnaud, Rays
D'Arnaud has knocked in runs in the last seven games in which he's played, along with 10 of the last 11. He added an RBI single on Sunday and now has 46 RBI on the season.
Wilmer Flores, Diamondbacks
Flores returned to the active roster on July 19 after recovering from a fractured foot and took a while to get going, but he did string together three consecutive games with hits earlier this week. He missed two months with the injury and is hitting .276/.323/.382 on the season.
Matt Harvey, Free Agent (formerly of Angels)
Harvey was designated for assignment by the Angels on July 21. The 30-year-old made 12 starts for them this season, going 3-5 with a lofty 7.09 ERA. His final start was a loss to the Astros, in which he allowed six runs on seven hits over six innings pitched.
