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...
Jarred Kelenic, Mariners (minors)
The 19-year-old Kelenic, the prized prospect the Mets included in the Diaz/Cano deal, is tearing the cover off the ball for Low-A West Virginia -- where he recently hit four homers in four games.
After a slow start, Kelenic has rounded into form and is hitting .340/.441/.630 with six homers, 11 doubles, and five stolen bases in 26 games (100 at-bats).

Justin Dunn, Mariners (minors)
The 23-year-old Dunn, also dealt to the Mariners in the Diaz/Cano deal, is pitching very well for Double-A Arkansas, with a 3.20 ERA and 1.14 WHIP with 33 strikeouts in 25.1 innings (five starts).
Justin Dunn is having a great night for the Travs. He's through six innings and has six Ks, but most impressively, hasn't walked anyone. Much better command than his last outing. Only Juremi Profar is finding success against him. Everyone else is...well. pic.twitter.com/GXja4Yt6xR- Lookout Landing (@LookoutLanding) May 3, 2019
Matt Harvey, Angels
Harvey, who signed a one-year, $11 million deal with the Angels this offseason after the Mets traded him to the Reds last season, has rebounded after his season started in disastrous fashion -- as he had a 9.64 ERA after his first four starts.
In his last two starts, Harvey has allowed just three runs in 13.0 innings while walking five and striking out seven as his ERA has dipped to 6.54 and his WHIP has dropped to 1.39.
Jay Bruce, Mariners
Bruce, who the Mets traded to Seattle as part of the Edwin Diaz/Robinson Cano trade, has hit four homers in the last three weeks (with one being a grand slam on Sunday) after hitting seven over the first two weeks of the season.
And the homers are pretty much all Bruce has going for him. Overall, he is hitting .182/.261/.525 in 28 games.
Wilmer Flores, Diamondbacks
Flores has picked things up lately, going 9 for his last 19 to raise his batting average from .203 to .258. His overall numbers are still weak, though, as he has just a .360 slugging percentage in 29 games this season.
Kevin Plawecki, Indians
Plawecki, who the Mets traded to the Indians earlier this offseason for Walter Lockett and Sam Haggerty, has played in just one game since April 27. Overall, he is hitting .200/.333/.400 with one homer in 13 games (30 at-bats) for Cleveland.
Asdrubal Cabrera, Rangers
Cabrera, who the Mets traded to the Phillies last season after nearly three seasons in New York, started off strong for Texas but has cooled off since. He is hitting .220/.294/.451 in 26 games and has just two hits in his last 20 at-bats.
Jenrry Mejia, Red Sox (minors)
Mejia, who the Mets let go after he was reinstated following his lifetime ban from baseball, spent most of Spring Training with the Red Sox but is now pitching for them in Triple-A, where he has taken a step back after starting strong. Mejia has a 4.73 ERA and 1.13 WHIP with 12 strikeouts in 13.1 innings (12 games)
