The Mets have the worst infield defense in baseball, as measured by Defensive Runs Saved (DRS), tweeted Mark Simon of ESPN.
The Mets' -32 DRS are far worse than the second-worst team on the list (the Padres), who have -22 DRS.
Using the Defensive Runs Saved metric, the Cubs -- with 46 DRS -- have the best infield defense in baseball.
The Mets have primarily been using Lucas Duda at first base, Asdrubal Cabrera at second base, Jose Reyes at shortstop, and Wilmer Flores at third base recently.
Reyes started 31 games at third base earlier this season, while Cabrera started 43 games at shortstop.
Neil Walker, who has started 58 games at second base this season, is currently on the disabled list due to a hamstring tear.
Top SS prospect Amed Rosario, viewed as a plus defender, is hitting .327 with a .365 OBP and .474 SLG with seven HR, 16 doubles, seven triples, and 16 stolen bases this season for Triple-A Las Vegas.
