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
Mets fans know that when Wilmer Flores gets hot, he's an awfully tough out, and that's exactly what he's been for the D-backs of late. The former Mets infielder is 13-for-26 in his last seven games, compiling a robust slash line of .500/.536/.846 with two homers and seven RBI. All of this despite a nagging back issue which is forcing him in and out of the Arizona lineup.
Asdrubal Cabrera, Nationals
Cabrera had an excellent game against the Orioles on Wednesday, going 3-for-4 with a double and two RBI. Since joining the Nationals, he's slashing .321/.400/536 in 56 at-bats.
Jarred Kelenic, Mariners (minors)
Kelenic launched two home runs for Double-A Arkansas Sunday, giving him five homers in 20 games since his promotion on Aug. 10. Across three levels of the Mariners' farm system this season, Kelenic is slashing .292/.366/.537 in 116 games.
Justin Dunn, Mariners (minors)
Dunn made two starts for Double-A Arkansas this week and was positively electric in the first one, tossing four perfect innings while striking out eight batters. He was removed from the game due to fatigue, but returned to make his next start Saturday, where he allowed two runs on five hits over five innings to earn the win.
Matt Harvey, Athletics (minors)
Harvey had an opt-out clause in his contract that would have allowed him to leave the A's, but has chosen not to use it. Instead he'll hope to find a role in the Oakland bullpen down the stretch. The first step in that journey came on Saturday, when he pitched a perfect inning of relief with two strikeouts for Triple-A Las Vegas.
Kevin Plawecki, Indians
Playing time has been sparse for Plawecki, who has served as the Indians' backup catcher in 2019, but he does have hits in each of the last three games in which he has appeared. He's slashing .217/.283/.341 in 138 at-bats this season.
Adeiny Hechavarria, Braves
Since a game-winning double against the Mets last week, Hechavarria has really hit the skids with the Braves. He has just one hit in his last 10 at-bats and has not appeared in the starting lineup since Wednesday, thanks to the return of Dansby Swanson.
Curtis Granderson, Marlins
Granderson has essentially been reduced to a pinch-hitter at this point in the season and his numbers tell the story. His batting average hasn't been above .200 since April 9 and he hasn't recorded a hit since Aug. 24. He's hitting .185/.282/.359 in 289 at-bats this season.
Travis d'Arnaud, Rays
D'Arnaud went 2-for-2 with a pair of RBI in Sunday's game against the Indians and is looking to regain the form he showcased when he joined the Rays earlier this season. In 259 at-bats with Tampa Bay this season, the former Mets catcher is hitting .274/.340/.494 with 15 homers and 54 RBI.
Jay Bruce, Phillies
Bruce finally returned to action on Sunday, coincidentally against the Mets, following two stints on the injured list. He came on as a pinch-hitter in the eighth inning and grounded out to first. In 286 at-bats with the Mariners and Phillies this season, Bruce does have 24 home runs, but he's also hitless in his last 18 at-bats.
