May

In the month of May, the Mets built on their hot start to the season, going 17-11, improving their record to 37-22 overall. The big highlight of the month was sweeping the rival Phillies over a 3-game stretch from May 26th to 28th, knocking them down to 3rd place in the NL East.

April’s MVP Michael Conforto missed some time with a wrist injury, but came back strong and continued his offensive prowess. Wilson Ramos improved his batting average from .255 to start the month to .335 at its end, and now has 7 HRs and 27 RBI on the year.

At the end of May, the team’s overall offense ranked second in the league in hits with 568 and first in batting average with .280.

Seth Lugo rebounded from his rough start to 2020 and lowered his ERA to 3.09, serving as the primary set up man to closer Edwin Diaz.

However, outfielder Brandon Nimmo struggled badly over the first two and a half months of 2020, batting only .200 with a .309 OBP with no home runs and only 9 RBI. While Nimmo is a great young player, if the Mets are serious about contending and he does not improve, they may need to look for anupgrade at the position.
