Pillar went 1-for-4 with a two-RBI triple during Wednesday's 7-1 win against Baltimore.
The 32-year-old brought home the first two runs of the game with a triple during the second inning, but he was quiet offensively the rest of the afternoon. Pillar is 14-for-41 (.342 average) in his past 10 games and should continue seeing regular time in center field until Brandon Nimmo (finger) returns from the injured list.
Pillar went 1-for-4 with a stolen base and a walk in Thursday's 4-1 win over the Cardinals.
Pillar stole second base in the second inning after hitting a single. The 32-year-old is a good candidate for double-digit steals if he can find his way into enough playing time. He also has two home runs, five RBI and seven runs in 50 plate appearances.
Pillar went 3-for-7 with a double, two RBI and a run scored across both games of Wednesday's doubleheader against the Cardinals.
After he collected one of only two Mets hits in the opener, Pillar's bat helped fuel a win in the nightcap as New York salvaged a split. With Brandon Nimmo (finger) landing on the IL, Pillar figures to be the team's primary center fielder for the short term.
Pillar went 2-for-4 with a two-run home run and a second run scored in Monday's 6-5 loss to the Cardinals.
All the scoring in the game came in the first three innings, with Pillar's blast off Adam Wainwright marking the last gasp for the Mets offense. The veteran outfielder has homered in back-to-back games for his only two homers (and only three RBI) of the season, boosting his slash line to .229/.270/.400 through 16 contests.
Pillar went 3-for-5 with a solo home run in the 8-7 win over the Phillies on Sunday.
Pillar homered off Brandon Kintzler in the eighth inning to contribute to a big six-run inning. Not only was it his first home run this season and as a Met, his three hits Sunday matched his prior season total. Before his three-hit game, he had a brutal slash line of .111/.172/.111. His batting average is up to .194 now, and he has an OPS of .533.
Pillar got the start in center field and hit eighth during Thursday's loss to the Cubs, going 0-for-4 with two strikeouts.
The focus of the Mets' overall offensive malaise has been on some of the team's bigger names, but Pillar has done very little with his own occasional opportunities. The veteran outfielder has gone 2-for-22 (.091) with one stolen base and three runs scored but zero homers or RBI. He's started the last two games while Brandon Nimmo deals with hip stiffness. Expect Pillar to get bumped back to the bench as soon as Nimmo is healthy.
Pillar has gone 11-for-34 (.324) this spring with two doubles, two triples, two stolen bases on three attempts and a 4:8 BB:K.
The veteran outfielder will likely be a platoon option and defensive replacement this season for the Mets, primarily slotting into the starting lineup against lefties, but Pillar could have fantasy value in NL-only and daily formats in that role. He posted career highs in all three triple slash categories (.288/.336/.462) in 2020, and over the last two seasons Pillar has a .353 wOBA and 119 RC+ against LHP.
Pillar agreed to a one-year, $5 million contract with New York on Monday, Andy Martino of SNY.tv reports.
The two sides were said to be in serious talks earlier in the evening, per Jon Heyman of MLB Network, and an agreement has since been reached. Pillar will provide the Mets with outfield depth and figures to also see plenty of starting opportunities. He has the flexibility to play all three outfield positions, though he's played primarily in center and right field throughout his big-league career. At the very least, the right-handed hitter will be in the lineup against almost all southpaws, and his defense should earn him some starts against righties as well.
Pillar went 3-for-4 with two doubles, three RBI and a run scored in Friday's 11-5 loss to the Diamondbacks.
Pillar went hitless in the first game of Friday's twin bill against Arizona, but he bounced back quickly and posted a three-hit performance during the nightcap -- it was the eighth time he accomplished that feat in Colorado's last 13 games. The center fielder is hitting a robust .412 with a 1.013 OPS during that stretch.
Pillar went 2-for-3 with a double, a walk, a run, an RBI and two stolen bases Tuesday in the Rockies' 5-2 loss to the Giants.
After slashing .387/.406/.452 in nine games during the Rockies' recent homestand, Pillar has continued to remain hot at the dish during the team's season-ending road trip. He's produced four hits through the first two games of the series in San Francisco, and the two steals were especially useful for fantasy managers trying to make up ground in that category. As one of the hotter hitters in the Colorado lineup, Pillar should continue to play regularly over the final week of the season as the Rockies chase down a long-shot playoff bid.
Pillar went 2-for-5 with a solo home run and an additional run scored in Monday's 7-2 win over the Giants.
Pillar hit his second homer for the Rockies in the third inning, giving them a 3-0 lead at the time.

The outfielder has six homers, 22 RBI, 31 runs scored and three stolen bases in 48 games between the Rockies and the Red Sox in 2020.

Pillar has seized an everyday day role since joining the Rockies at the trade deadline Aug. 31. Through 16 games with the club, Pillar is batting .293, with his average climbing of late on the back of three multi-hit games in a row. He'll look to extend that streak in the series finale Sunday, when he'll bat second while serving as Colorado's designated hitter.
Pillar went 1-for-4 with a stolen base in Friday's 8-4 win over the Angels.
Pillar picked up his second steal in nine games with the Rockies. The outfielder is slashing just .200/.243/.343 in 35 at-bats since he was traded from the Red Sox. He has three steals, five homers, 19 RBI and 25 runs scored in 39 contests this year. With David Dahl back from a back injury, Pillar will need to improve at the plate to see consistent playing time.
Pillar went 1-for-4 with a grand slam during Friday's loss at Dodger Stadium.
Trailing 5-2 in the eighth, Pillar smacked a grand slam against Caleb Ferguson to give the Rockies the lead. It was the fifth long ball of the season for veteran outfielder, who was traded to Colorado on Aug. 31. In his first three games with his new squad, Pillar is 3-for-12 with six RBI.

Pillar went 2-for-3 with a solo home run, an additional run scored and a triple in Saturday's 5-3 win over the Nationals.
Pillar's first run came after his second-inning triple, as he was able to score on a Jackie Bradley groundout. Pillar later added an insurance run with his long ball in the fourth off Nationals starter Anibal Sanchez. The 31-year-old Pillar has four homers, 13 RBI, 18 runs scored and a stolen base through 29 games this season. He's added two triples and six doubles among his 30 total hits.
Pillar went 2-for-5 with a solo home run, a second run scored and a stolen base in Sunday's 5-4 loss to Baltimore.
Pillar, batting leadoff against left-hander Wade LeBlanc, opened the game with a home run, then stole third base and scored again in the sixth inning. He opened the season as the fourth outfielder but has appeared in 25 of 29 games and is second on the team with 16 runs. His playing time could take a hit when Andrew Benintendi (ribs) returns, but given that the Red Sox will be sellers at the trade deadline, Pillar may be an attractive piece for a contender.

Pillar slotted in at the top of the order with lefty Blake Snell on the mound, but he'll shift down to fifth in the lineup in Thursday's series finale as right-hander Tyler Glasnow starts for the Rays.
