Lucas Duda 1B/LF NYM 2 Days

Duda was 1-for-4 with a two-run home run in the Mets' win over Atlanta on Friday night.

He broke up a scoreless pitcher's duel with a two-run shot, his 28th homer of the season, in the sixth inning. Duda has enjoyed a very productive 2014 with 85 RBI and a modest .252 average to go with the 28 long ones.

Duda is out of the lineup Wednesday.

With the Mets facing lefty Tyler Matzek, Eric Campbell will get the start at first base. Duda has had an incredible year, and will likely be a highly sought after option at first base next season, but he still has horrible splits against southpaws, hitting just .169 with one home run in 95 at-bats against them this season.

Duda went 0-for-3 at the plate Saturday and is just 25-for-115 his last 31 days.

Duda does have seven home runs and 19 runs batted in during that stretch, but he has struggled at the plate. In addition, he has struck out 34 times in those 115 at-bats. Duda may be wearing down during the long season, as he now has career-highs in at-bats and plate appearances, but still should in the lineup almost daily at first base.

Duda went 3-for-5 with two home runs and five RBIs in the Mets' 11-3 over the Phillies on Sunday.

Duda blasted two home runs and drove in a career-high five runs in the Mets' win over the Dodgers on Sunday.

The two long balls gives Duda five home runs in his last six games. He is up to 26 home runs and 76 runs batted in for the year; remarkable numbers for someone who didn't open the season as the Mets' starter at first base. The next step in his development will be for him to show he can hit lefties. If he is able to show some proficiency against southpaws, Duda would start almost every day at first base.

Duda blasted his 23rd home run of the season - a three-run shot to dead center - in the Mets' 8-5 win over the A's on Wednesday.

Duda has struggled at the plate the past several weeks but has provided the long-ball and driven in some runs, which is his role on the team. With David Wright having a miserable season, Duda has been the Mets' main power threat and has delivered more than the team expected coming into the season.

Duda was 1-for-3 with a solo home run and a walk in New York's loss to Chicago Monday.

Duda now has 22 home runs and 66 RBI on the season for the Mets and has been a very nice surprise since getting the full-time role after Ike Davis' departure. He's slashing .255/.354/.484.

Duda went 2-for-5, driving in the game-winning run off lefty Antonio Bastardo in the 11th inning Saturday.

Both of Duda's hits came off lefties, as he got the start and singled off Cole Hamels. Duda is now 12-for-70 against southpaws, as one at-bat Saturday was against Jonathan Papelbon, and should see more time versus lefties the remainder of the season.

Duda, who sat against Cole Hamels the last time the Mets faced the Phillies, will be in the lineup against the lefty Saturday, ESPN New York reports.

Duda, just 10-for-66 against southpaws, will get the chance against Hamels, as the Mets start ti look to 2015. The hope is that Duda shows he is proficient enough against lefties so that he can be viewed as even more of a full-time player, rather than sitting versus southpaws.

Lucas Duda singled in a run and launched a two-run homer in Wednesday's win over the Phillies.

That gives Duda seven longballs this month and five over his last eight games. The 28-year-old is hitting just .262 for the season, but it's come along with a .358 OBP, 19 homers and 60 RBI. He's currently on pace for a 29-homer, 90-RBI campaign.
