  • Mets' DJ Stewart: Out against righty again

    Stewart is absent from the lineup for Wednesday's game versus the Yankees, Anthony DiComo of MLB.com reports.

    The Mets have faced two right-handers since Starling Marte (knee) went on the 10-day injured list and the left-handed-hitting Stewart hasn't started either one of them, as the club has gone with Tyrone Taylor in right field for both contests. While Stewart should still get his fair share of reps in the outfield while Marte is out, it's clear manager Carlos Mendoza isn't planning to use a strict platoon in right field.

  • Mets' DJ Stewart: In line for more work

    Stewart could handle the strong side of a platoon in left field with Tyrone Taylor while Starling Marte (knee) is on the injured list, Will Sammon of The Athletic reports.

    The Mets do have other options to replace Marte, including shifting Jeff McNeil to left and giving Jose Iglesias more time at second base, but some form of a Stewart-Taylor timeshare is the most likely scenario. Stewart has provided value at the plate against right-handers this season, slashing .204/.350/.372 with five homers over 140 plate appearances in that split, but Taylor is the better defensive outfielder.

  • Mets' DJ Stewart: Ends homer drought Monday

    Stewart went 2-for-6 with a three-run home run and a second run scored in Monday's win over the Rangers.

    Getting the start in right field and batting fifth, Stewart ripped a first-pitch fastball from Jon Gray down the right-field line in the second inning, giving the Mets an early 7-0 lead in an eventual 14-2 rout. The blast ended a 32-game homer drought for Stewart, with his last long ball coming April 30 -- in between, he slashed a woeful .145/.299/.182 with just two RBI in 67 plate appearances. The 30-year-old has seen his playing time largely evaporate with J.D. Martinez handling everyday duties at DH, and even if he heats up at the plate, Stewart's role isn't likely to change much.

  • Mets' DJ Stewart: Back on bench Wednesday

    Stewart is out of the lineup for Wednesday's game against the Dodgers.

    Stewart had started in each of the past four games while Harrison Bader received two days off and with Starling Marte and J.D. Martinez both resting once. With the exception of catcher Francisco Alvarez (thumb), the Mets have all their key hitters available at the moment, so Stewart still looks to be part-time player despite the recent uptick in starting opportunities.

  • Mets' DJ Stewart: On base three times Sunday

    Stewart went 2-for-3 with a walk and a run scored in Sunday's win over Atlanta.

    Getting the start in left field with Brandon Nimmo nursing an intercostal issue, Stewart did a credible job as the leadoff hitter. Nimmo wound up pinch hitting a slugging a walk-off homer in the ninth inning however, so the assignment for Stewart was purely a short-term one. The 30-year-old has played well enough to keep a bench job even after J.D. Martinez joined the big-league roster, and Stewart sports a .206/.389/.426 slash line on the season with four homers and 16 RBI in 90 plate appearances.

  • Mets' DJ Stewart: Losing work to J.D. Martinez

    Stewart is out of the lineup for Monday's game against the Cubs, Tim Healey of Newsday reports.

    Stewart is on the bench for the third time in five games. As expected, he's become the odd man out of the Mets' everyday lineup versus right-handed pitching after New York added designated hitter J.D. Martinez to the 26-man active roster Friday.

  • Mets' DJ Stewart: Not in Wednesday's lineup

    Stewart is absent from the lineup for Wednesday's game against the Giants, Tim Healey of Newsday reports.

    Southpaw Blake Snell is on the hill for the Giants, so the left-handed-hitting Stewart will begin Wednesday's game on the bench. Starling Marte will serve as the Mets' designated hitter in Stewart's stead, and with J.D. Martinez potentially set to report to the big club this weekend, Stewart's time as New York's primary DH may have already come to an end.

  • Mets' DJ Stewart: Launches third homer

    Stewart went 2-for-4 with a home run and three RBI in Friday's win over the Dodgers.

    The 30-year-old drove a 96.3 mph fastball from Yoshinobu Yamamoto deep to right field in the second inning to open the scoring with a solo shot, then chipped in runs later in the contest with a sacrifice fly and a single. Stewart has hit safely in six of his last seven games, batting .368 (7-for-19) over that stretch with all three of his homers and all 10 of his RBI on the season. J.D. Martinez (back) will eventually join the roster as the full-time DH, but Stewart is doing what he can to prove he should remain in a prominent role once that happens.

  • Mets' DJ Stewart: Sits against lefty

    Stewart is out of the lineup for Wednesday's game against the Pirates, Anthony DiComo of MLB.com reports.

    The lefty-hitting Stewart will take a seat for the fourth straight game, with three of his absences from the lineup coming against southpaws. Stewart still looks to be the Mets' preferred option at designated hitter against right-handed pitching while J.D. Martinez's (back) season debut is still at least a week away.

  • Mets' DJ Stewart: On bench Tuesday

    Stewart is out of the lineup for Tuesday's game against the Pirates, Anthony DiComo of MLB.com reports.

    Stewart was held out of the lineup the past two games with the Mets facing left-handed starters, and he's sitting again Tuesday with righty Jared Jones pitching for Pittsburgh. Francisco Alvarez will rest his legs as the designated hitter while Omar Narvaez receives a start behind the plate.

  • Mets' DJ Stewart: Heads to bench versus lefty

    Stewart is out of the lineup for Sunday's game against the Royals.

    Stewart will take a seat to begin Sunday's game while the Royals bring left-hander Cole Ragans to the hill. With Stewart on the bench, Starling Marte will serve as the Mets' designated hitter, and Tyrone Taylor will draw a start in right field.

  • Mets' DJ Stewart: First hit of season leaves yard

    Stewart went 1-for-3 with a walk and a two-run home run in Monday's win over Atlanta.

    The 30-year-old came into the game having gone 0-for-10 to start the season, but Stewart broke a 5-5 tie in the eighth inning by launching a Pierce Johnson curveball over the fence in center field. Stewart has been the Mets' regular DH against right-handed pitching to begin the season, but he'll lose that role -- and potentially even his spot on the 26-man roster -- when J.D. Martinez (body soreness) is ready to make his debut for the club.

  • Mets' DJ Stewart: On bench against lefty

    Stewart is out of the lineup for Sunday's game against the Reds, Anthony DiComo of MLB.com reports.

    The lefty-hitting Stewart is on the bench for the second day in a row while Cincinnati brings southpaw Andrew Abbott to the hill for the series finale. With manager Carlos Mendoza noting earlier Sunday that J.D. Martinez (general body soreness) isn't in line to make his Mets debut until at least Friday, Stewart should retain a role as the team's primary designated hitter during its four-game series in Atlanta to begin the upcoming week.

  • Mets' DJ Stewart: Gets Saturday off

    Stewart isn't in the Mets' lineup for Saturday's game against the Reds.

    After starting the year 0-for-8, Stewart will step out of New York's lineup Saturday to regroup. His absence will shift Brandon Nimmo into the DH spot, allowing Tyrone Taylor to start in left field.

  • Mets' DJ Stewart: Resting in nightcap

    Stewart isn't in the Mets' lineup for Game 2 of Thursday's twin bill against the Tigers.

    Stewart failed to record a hit in two at-bats during the first game of Thursday's slate, making him 0-for-9 to begin the new campaign. His absence will move Brandon Nimmo into the DH spot, allowing Tyrone Taylor to start in left field while batting sixth.

  • Mets' DJ Stewart: On bench again Sunday

    Stewart is out of the lineup for Sunday's game against the Brewers, Tim Healey of Newsday reports.

    Stewart went 0-for-2 with a walk and two strikeouts Opening Day but is on the bench Sunday for the second straight game. Francisco Alvarez is resting his legs as the designated hitter while Omar Narvaez receives a look behind the plate.

  • Mets' DJ Stewart: Absent from lineup

    Stewart isn't in the Mets' lineup for Saturday's game against the Brewers.

    Stewart went 0-for-2 with a walk as the Mets' Opening Day DH, and he'll catch a breather Saturday as southpaw DL Hall prepares to start on the mound for Milwaukee. Starling Marte will slide into the DH spot while Tyrone Taylor starts in right field and bats fourth against his former team.

  • Mets' DJ Stewart: Occupying DH spot

    Stewart is starting at designated hitter and batting sixth Friday against the Brewers, Tim Britton of The Athletic reports.

    The Mets have some at-bats available at DH on a short-term basis as J.D. Martinez ramps up after signing late, and Stewart looks like he'll receive the bulk of them versus righties. Stewart collected an .840 OPS with 11 home runs in a 58-game sample for the Mets last season, with 10 of those 11 homers coming off right-handers.

  • Mets' DJ Stewart: Swats first spring homer

    Stewart went 1-for-3 with a solo home run in Friday's Grapefruit League game against the Nationals.

    Getting the start in left field and batting leadoff, Stewart took Trevor Williams deep in the first inning for his first long ball of the spring. The 30-year-old outfielder revived his career with the Mets last season, but he slumped in September and hasn't looked any better at the plate in camp, batting .200 (5-for-25) with Friday's homer being his only extra-base hit. He's still penciled into a spot on the Mets' Opening Day bench.

  • Mets' DJ Stewart: Avoids arb at $1.38M

    Stewart signed a one-year, $1.38 million contract with the Mets on Friday, avoiding arbitration, Joel Sherman of the New York Post reports.

    Stewart had to settle for a minor-league contract last winter, but he made his way up to Queens in early July and went on to post an .840 OPS with 11 home runs across 58 major-league games. The 29-year-old corner outfielder looks poised to get regular starts against right-handers in 2024.
