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...
Wilmer Flores, Diamondbacks
Flores is struggling in Arizona, hitting just .200/.256/.275 with zero homers and three doubles in 40 at-bats over 12 games. He's been slumping especially badly since April 6, with just three hits in 20 at-bats.
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, was solid in his first start, allowing two runs (including one homer) in six innings, but only struck out one batter. He has gotten shelled in his last two starts, though, and has a 10.05 ERA and 1.95 WHIP in 14.1 innings this season.
Jay Bruce, Mariners
Bruce, who the Mets traded to Seattle as part of the Edwin Diaz/Robinson Cano trade, has cooled off considerably power-wise over the last week, but still has seven homers for the 13-4 Mariners.
A look beyond the seven homers: Bruce is hitting just .179 with a .277 OBP in 56 at-bats over 15 games.
Jarred Kelenic, Mariners (minors)
The 19-year-old Kelenic, the prized prospect the Mets included in the Diaz/Cano deal, is hitting .216/.370/.351 with one homer and two doubles in 10 games (37 at-bats) for the Mariners' Low-A affiliate in West Virginia.
Justin Dunn, Mariners (minors)
The 23-year-old Dunn, also dealt to the Mariners in the Diaz/Cano deal, allowed one run on five hits while walking one and striking out seven in 5.0 innings in Double-A Arkansas during his season debut. In his second start, Dunn allowed three runs (two earned) on four hits while walking one and striking out six in 3.2 innings.

Curtis Granderson, Marlins
Granderson is with one of the Mets' rivals in the NL East and struggling badly, hitting .158/.298/.342 with two homers and one double in 13 games.
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 just one hit in his last 16 at-bats. Overall, he is hitting .190/.255/.500 with four homers in 42 at-bats over 12 games.
Kevin Plawecki, Indians
Plawecki, who the Mets traded to the Indians earlier this offseason for Walter Lockett and Sam Haggerty, is hitting .125/.222/.313 with one homer in seven games (16 at-bats) for Cleveland.
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 been terrific in 6.1 innings, posting a 1.42 ERA and 0.63 WHIP with zero walks and six strikeouts.
