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)
The 19-year-old Kelenic, whom the Mets drafted sixth overall last year but dealt to Seattle in the Edwin Diaz and Robinson Cano trade, went 0-for-3 in the MLB Futures Game and continues to struggle in High-A Modesto. Kelenic has just three hits in his last 17 at-bats.
Justin Dunn, Mariners (minors)
Dunn, who was also sent to Seattle in the Diaz/Cano trade, tossed a scoreless inning in the Futures Game and struck out one batter. On Friday, he tossed six innings and allowed two runs on five hits and struck out six in a no-decision with Double-A Arkansas, where he is 5-3 with a 3.76 ERA and has 102 strikeouts in 81.1 innings pitched this year.
Jay Bruce, Phillies
Bruce, who joined the Phillies via the Mariners this season, was on a roll heading into the All-Star break but has cooled off out of the gates to start the second half of the season. Bruce saw a six-game hitting streak snap on Friday when he went 0-for-4 and then went 0-for-1 on Saturday in a pinch-hit at-bat.
Bruce is hitting .238/2.287/.564 with 24 home runs and 57 RBI in 2019.
Matt Harvey, Angels
Harvey took the mound for the Angels on Saturday for the first time in seven weeks after being sidelined with an upper back strain. The right-hander turned in a strong performance, going 5.2 innings and allowing one run on four hits and three walks while striking out three against the Mariners. The run did not come until a sac fly in the sixth, opening the game with five scoreless frames.
Kevin Plawecki, Indians
Plawecki has a .217/.298/.348 batting line with two home runs and 10 RBI in just 104 plate appearances with Cleveland this season. He has not played since the All-Star break.
Asdrubal Cabrera, Rangers
The former Mets infielder is just 1-for-8 with a walk since the All-Star break and is now in the midst of a 5-for-46 slump. He was held out of the starting lineup on Saturday and has a .224/.312/.386 line with the Rangers this season.
Curtis Granderson, Marlins
Granderson has struggled this season, but came up big against his former team on Friday night when he hit a go-ahead two-run home run off Jason Vargas in the third inning en route to an 8-4 victory over the Mets. It was his eighth home run of the season, but he is still hitting just .190/.275/.370 this year.
Travis d'Arnaud, Rays
D'Arnaud has found a groove with the Rays lately, hitting a slash line of .394/.444/.636 in his last nine games and is in the midst of a four-game hitting streak. He hit a walk-off home run against the Yankees prior to the All-Star break and is 4-for-10 since the break.
Wilmer Flores, Diamondbacks
Flores is out until at least mid-July with a fractured right foot. Prior to going on the injured list, he was slashing .281/.326/.398 with two home runs and 14 RBIs with Arizona.
