It was an injury-plagued season for Lucas Duda in 2016, who missed a good chunk of the year with a back injury.

Lucas Duda has been a valuable piece to the Mets offense the last couple of seasons. However, Duda’s bat was a non-factor in 2016, as the slugger missed over three months of the season with a stress fracture in his lower back.

Expectations were high for Duda leading up to last season. And for good reason, as the big Lebowski had compiled a total of 57 homers over a two-year span coming into 2016.

2017 is a big season for Duda, but first, let’s take a closer look at Duda’s disappointing 2016 campaign.
