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 trade for Edwin Diaz and Robinson Cano continues to look like one the Mets may regret. While Diaz blew yet another save this week, Kelenic was selected to the All-Star Futures Game as he continues to prove he is one of the promising young prospects in baseball.
Kelenic struggled this week, though. He is just 2 for his last 24 with nine strikeouts over his last seven games and is hitting just .217/.269/.400 with two home runs and nine RBI since being promoted to High-A ball after dominating Low-A ball with a .309 average and 11 home runs in 50 games.
Justin Dunn, Mariners (minors)
Dunn, who was also part of the Diaz-Cano deal, will be joining Kelenic in the All-Star Futures Game. In his most recent start, Dunn tossed 5.1 innings and allowed just two runs on three hits while striking out nine batters. He has a 3.45 ERA with 90 strikeouts in 70.1 innings pitched this season with Double-A Arkansas.
Jay Bruce, Phillies
Bruce, the only MLB player to be dealt in the Cano-Diaz trade, is also tearing it up. The 32-year-old left-handed hitter was traded from the Mariners to the Phillies at the beginning of June and is hitting .276/.300/.618 with seven home runs and 20 RBI since joining his new team. Bruce went 4-for-14 with a home run and four RBI against the Mets this week, including a walk-off double on Wednesday night. He was also scratched from Saturday's lineup with a sore elbow.
Matt Harvey, Angels
On the injured list with an upper back strain since May 25, Harvey is scheduled to begin a rehab assignment on Tuesday. The 30-year-old suffered a setback in his last rehab start in early June but hopes to be ready to go after teh All-Star break.
Kevin Plawecki, Indians
Plawecki played in two games this week for the Indians this week, going 3-for-7 with an RBI.
Asdrubal Cabrera, Rangers
Cabrera missed three games this week after he was suspended by MLB for hitting an umpire with equipment. The infielder tossed his plastic guard and batting glvoes at crew chief Bill Miller after he was ejected in a game on June 20. He returned on Friday and went 0-for-3 but collected a hit on Saturday. He is hitting a slash line of .228/.310/.406 this season in Texas.
Curtis Granderson, Marlins
Granderson is struggling mightily this season, hitting an anemic .185 with seven home runs, but he looked better at the plate this week. Granderson collected three hits in 13 at-bats, including a double and a triple, while driving in four runs.
Travis d'Arnaud, Rays
D'Arnaud hit his way back over the Mendoza line on Saturday, going 2-for-3 with a solo home run. He also hit a home run last Sunday as he tries to find his stroke at the plate, hitting .205 on the season.
