Jeff McNeil left Tuesday's game against the Orioles early due to "body cramps," according to the Mets.
McNeil pulled up trying to stretch a single into a double and is now out of the game. He was replaced by José Peraza. It sounds minor, but there should be more news on his situation after this game.
Jeff McNeil went 1-4 with two runs scored and two RBIs.
McNeil's home run was his third of the season. He has a modest four-game hitting streak, but his batting average has actually fallen from .230 to .227 during that span. The 29-year-old has shown great discipline at the plate, and his track record makes me believe it's only a matter of time before he breaks out of his slump. He's an intriguing DFS prospect who is due for some positive regression.
Jeff McNeil went 0-3 with one walk, one strikeout and one run scored.
McNeil is off to a dreadful start in 2021, uncharacteristic of the man who leads the Majors in batting average since his debut in 2018. His .180 BABIP is at least partly responsible, and managers will just have to be patient. He's a good buy-low candidate for average-needy teams.
Jeff McNeil went 1-3 with one run scored, one RBI, and one strikeout.
McNeil is hitting .308 over his last 741 at-bats, which means owners shouldn't panic over his slow start. The home run was his first since April 8th. He's got a three-game hitting streak dating back to April 23rd.
Jeff McNeil is absent from Sunday's lineup against the Nationals.
It's a routine day off with a lefty (Patrick Corbin) on the bump for Washington. Jonathan Villar is playing second base and batting second in his absence.
