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)
Kelenic's promotion to High-A has been met with success through a small sample size (seven games). The 19-year-old is batting .375/.423/.667 with two homers and five RBI. He's also stolen a base in three consecutive contests, but landed on the injured list Saturday with a wrist injury.
Kelenic was one of the centerpieces of the trade that brought Edwin Diaz and Robinson Canó to the Mets this offseason.
Justin Dunn, Mariners (minors)
Another key cog that helped set the Diaz-Canó trade into motion, Dunn has enjoyed a solid season in Double-A. The right-hander is 4-2 with a 3.50 ERA and 67 strikeouts over 54 innings. Last week, he delivered five scoreless innings on June 2 before yielding four earned runs on 10 hits in 5 2/3 frames Saturday.
Opponents are hitting .254 against Dunn, who owns a 1.26 WHIP through 11 starts.
Matt Harvey, Angels
On the injured list with an upper back strain since May 25, Harvey made a rehab start for Triple-A Salt Lake on Saturday and it certainly did not go well. The Dark Knight surrendered eight runs on eight hits in 2 2/3 innings. He threw 83 pitches, walked two and struck out three -- all after pitching a perfect first inning.
Harvey has a 7.50 ERA in 10 Major League starts this year.
Jay Bruce, Phillies
So far, so good for Bruce in a Phillies uniform. After Philadelphia acquired him from Seattle last weekend, the 32-year-old met his new teammates in San Diego, where he immediately began raking. In 18 plate appearances for the Phillies, Bruce has four homers, two doubles and 11 RBI. He's upped his batting average to .235 (with a .898 OPS) and has 18 homers in 2019.
Kevin Plawecki, Indians
Back-to-back starts this weekend were the most consistent playing time Plawecki has seen all season. He rewarded the Indians by homering against the Yankees on Saturday. In 70 at-bats this season, Plawecki has 12 hits and 13 strikeouts.
Asdrubal Cabrera, Rangers
Cabrera is off to a scorching start in June, evidenced by his .423/.500/.500 slash line to begin the month. Since homering twice on May 20, Cabrera has yet to clear a fence. He's hitting .251 with a .775 OPS.
Curtis Granderson, Marlins
Granderson got off the interstate this week -- momentarily -- by raising his average .200 following Thursday's contest in Milwaukee. Two games later, he's back down to .193 with a .653 OPS.
Travis d'Arnaud, Rays
It was a putrid start to the season for the backstop. The Mets released him and his hometown Dodgers shipped him to Tampa Bay just one game into his tenure there. Perhaps he's found his groove with the Rays, however. Dating back to May 27 -- just 21 at-bats thanks to his platoon situation behind the plate -- d'Arnaud is batting .429/.500/1.452 with three homers, 10 RBI and four walks.
