Player Outlook
Coming off a National League batting title, Jeff McNeil needed a strong finishing kick in the final two months just to get his average up to .270, which was 37 points lower than the career .307 mark he carried into the season and 56 points lower than the .326 he hit in 2022. McNeil's contact skills were as good as ever with a strikeout rate of just 10 percent, but his already-weak quality of contact was even worse last season with a hard-hit rate in the fifth percentile and barrel rate in the second percentile. He also hit more flyballs, which helped him reach double digits in home runs for just the second time but also, when combined with feeble contact, led to a lot of lazy flyouts. It's possible McNeil was pressing after signing a long-term deal, and his .303/.342/.466 line from August on is probably closer to what we should expect in 2024. McNeil did end the season on the injured list with a partial tear of the UCL in his right elbow, but all signs point to that healing with rest.

  • Mets' Jeff McNeil: Goes yard twice in loss

    McNeil went 3-for-4 with two home runs and three RBI in Friday's 6-4 loss to the Marlins. The 32-year-old very nearly kept the Mets in the game single-handedly, launching a solo shot off Edward Cabrera in the fifth inning to get his team on the board and then slugging a two-run blast to right field off Andrew Nardi in the sixth. McNeil appears to have turned things around at the plate, and over his last 20 games he's slashing .271/.302/.525 with four of his seven homers on the season and 12 of his 27 RBI.

  • Mets' Jeff McNeil: Sitting versus southpaw

    McNeil is out of the lineup for Wednesday's game against the Nationals. With lefty Patrick Corbin toeing the rubber for Washington, the lefty-hitting McNeil will bow out of the starting nine.

  • Mets' Jeff McNeil: Pops fifth homer

    McNeil went 1-for-3 with a solo home run in Friday's loss to the Pirates. His third-inning shot off Paul Skenes opened the scoring on the night, but it proved to be a drop in the bucket as the Mets got routed 14-2. McNeil is quietly showing flickers of life at the plate -- two of his five homers on the season have come in the last eight games, and he's batting .250 (8-for-32) over that stretch. Even with that modest uptick in production, McNeil's .216 batting average and .585 OPS on the year are by far career worsts.

  • Mets' Jeff McNeil: Ends power drought Friday

    McNeil went 3-for-4 with a three-run home run and a second run scored in Friday's 7-2 win over the Astros. The second baseman took Ronel Blanco deep in the sixth inning, the third of three Mets homers on the night. It was McNeil's first long ball since May 22, snapping a 23-game power outage, and the performance was his first three-hit game since May 7. He'll need more than one good game to earn the trust of fantasy GMs again, however -- on the season, McNeil is slashing a feeble .212/.283/.312 with four home runs, four steals, 19 RBI and 31 runs in 72 contests.

  • Mets' Jeff McNeil: Nabs fourth steal

    McNeil went 2-for-4 with two runs scored and a stolen base in Tuesday's win over the Yankees. It's the 32-year-old's first multi-hit performance since June 9, with McNeil batting a brutal .088 (3-for-34) in between. The career .291 hitter is slashing just .216/.281/.298 on the season, and his lengthy slump -- as well as a hot start to Jose Iglesias' Mets tenure -- has put McNeil's playing time in a bit of jeopardy. He may need to string together a few more solid efforts to avoid losing his hold on even a strong-side platoon role at second base.

  • Mets' Jeff McNeil: Sitting again versus lefty

    McNeil is not in the lineup for Friday's game against the Cubs. McNeil has been out of the lineup for two straight games and seven times over the last eight occasions that the Mets have faced a left-hander, and he's pretty clearly in a platoon at second base with Jose Iglesias. Iglesias and his teammates will try to solve southpaw Shota Imanaga on Friday.

  • Mets' Jeff McNeil: Cranks second homer

    McNeil went 2-for-4 with a two-run homer, a double and a second run scored in Tuesday's 7-6 loss to the Guardians. McNeil poked a one-out double in the fifth inning and came around to score on a Francisco Lindor single. He then cut the Mets' deficit to 5-4 with a two-run homer off left-hander Sam Hentges, his second of the year. It's been a tough start to the year for McNeil, though he's shown signs of life of late, going 6-for-19 with no strikeouts in his last five games. Overall, the 32-year-old second baseman is slashing .240/.314/.329 with 18 runs scored, 12 RBI and three steals across 186 plate appearances this season.

  • Mets' Jeff McNeil: Nabs first steal of year

    McNeil went 0-for-4 with a run scored and a stolen base in Monday's win over the Pirates. The 32-year-old sparked a game-winning rally in the eighth inning by getting to first base after a third strike wild pitch by Aroldis Chapman, eventually stealing third and coming around to score on a Harrison Bader double. The stolen base was McNeil's first of the season, but he has yet to get going at the plate, slashing just .204/.328/.286 through 15 games with a homer, five RBI and eight runs.

  • Mets' Jeff McNeil: Reaches four more times in win

    McNeil went 2-for-3 with a double, two walks, three RBI and two runs scored in Thursday's 16-4 victory over Atlanta. After going just 2-for-22 to start the campaign, McNeil's now hit safely in his last five contests, going 5-for-13 in that span. While he's shown signs of turning it around at the plate, the 32-year-old McNeil is still batting just .200 with a .647 OPS through 11 games this year. He slashed .270/.333/.378 with 10 homers, 75 runs scored, 55 RBI and 10 steals in 2023.

  • Mets' Jeff McNeil: On base three times Monday

    McNeil went 1-for-2 with two walks and two runs scored in Monday's win over Atlanta. Getting the start in left field and batting eighth, McNeil kept the line moving and was driven home twice by leadoff hitter Brandon Nimmo. McNeil has reached base in five straight games, a modest achievement but a good sign for the 32-year-old after his disappointing 2023. Through nine contests to begin the season, he's batting just .143 (4-for-28), but that comes with a 4:2 BB:K.
