During the first few months of the 2022 campaign, the Mets took a consistent approach to the board. Part of this successful new approach can be attributed to new acquisitions such as Mark Kanha And the Starling Martalong with the mindset that Buck Showalter, Eric Chavez and the rest of the Mets coaches sought to instill within these Mets hitters.
This article will cover the New York Mets hitter numbers for the year 2022 so far in the season. All players on the list must have made at least 50 boards in 2022. The statistics used for the respective hitters were collected from baseball world.

Analytics: The catcher is the shining weak point when it comes to batting in the Mets lineup. With McCann on IL since May 10, Nido and Patrick Mazeika really delivered no upswing when it came to offensive production. Meanwhile, McCann may not have been rocking a great racket himself, but his projected stats indicate some positive regression that he is expected to return from IL sometime this week.

AnalyticsPete Alonso is not only a top bat in the Mets squad but in the entire National League. The NL RBI captain continues to build on a great start to the season, and the predictable stats are that he will only continue to perform at this level. Meanwhile, Dominic Smith was called back to the Mets yesterday after putting Seth Lugo on the paternity list. Hopefully Smith found his swing in his short stint at Syracuse that brought him more success earlier in his MLB career.

Analytics: After a disappointing 2021 season, McNeil rebounded with a .327 average, which includes .371 AVG with runners, and .404 AVG with runners in the scoring position. Although expected stats suggest a regression may be coming, he has shown the ability to beat defensive alignment with soft ball strokes, which likely contributes to those numbers. Meanwhile, Luis Guillorme has been the Mets’ main utilitarian asset this season on both sides of the diamond, providing a steady bat and a stable glove around all positions on the field.

Analytics: Francisco Lindor seems to have settled down. He’s been fairly stubborn with the bats this season, getting off to a bright start in April, before slowing down in May and June. A broken finger will probably contribute to the sluggish start in June so far for Lindor, but the numbers are still very strong overall, especially considering the value it brings on the other side of the diamond.
On the first night, Francisco Lindor’s HR team of 3 traveled 440 feet to the live center field.

Analytics: Eduardo Escobar has shown flashes this season and is arguably his best singles bat in 2022 so far with his San Diego tournament, but he hasn’t arrived as expected so far in the season. Although never known to get on the base, Escobar’s .677 OPS sits well short of his .741 OPS career, and the expected stats don’t suggest much improvement. In regards to JD Davis, he has been the “Savant Darling” for the Mets this season. His expected slow rate is second to the team behind Pete Alonso, but his starkly high strike rate and ball rate prevented him from taking on the role of DH on a full-time basis.

AnalyticsKana, Nemo and Marty are the consistent trio in the Mets squad this season. All three players have OPS located between .774 and .779. Talk about consistency. Nemo and Marte were a heavy blow to a one-to-two at the top of the standings, as Marte heated up after a tough start off the bat. Meanwhile, Canha has shown the ability to go all-around with his paddle, while still maintaining a top of the .383 OBP.
The Mets’ bats will look to continue to put the ball in play and take out every player over the course of the season. It is clear that the new manager and hitting coach have changed the hitters’ approach to the Mets for the better. With a staff that continues to recover slowly, it is important that the squad that leads the MLB average and base percentage continue to succeed throughout the summer months of the season.
