    Bader went 4-for-5 with a double, a stolen base, an RBI and a run scored in Friday's win over the Dodgers.

    Bader drove in New York's second run with a single in the second inning before swiping a bag in the sixth. The Mets center fielder has collected a hit in 11 of his past 13 games, batting .361 (17-for-47) with nine runs scored, six RBI and four steals over the span. Overall, Bader is slashing .333/.367/.421 over 60 plate appearances and is a fixture in the starting lineup, batting eighth or ninth.

  • Mets' Harrison Bader: Goes yard for first time in 2024

    Bader went 1-for-4 with a two-run home run in Wednesday's win over the Pirates.

    His sixth-inning shot down the left-field line helped break the game open for the Mets. It was Bader's first homer with the club, and after a slow start at the plate to 2024, the 29-year-old has come alive by batting .385 (10-for-26) over his last seven games. The surge has lifted his season slash line to .288/.327/.365 with three steals, five RBI and eight runs on the season.

  • Mets' Harrison Bader: Plates two, swipes bag

    Bader went 1-for-3 with a double, a stolen base, two RBI and a run scored in Monday's win over the Pirates.

    Bader played the hero Monday for the Mets as he broke a tie in the eighth inning with a two-RBI double off Aroldis Chapman. His double knocked Chapman out of the game, allowing him to promptly steal third base off the new reliever, Roansy Contreras. Bader is riding a five-game hit streak while slashing .304/.333/.326 over 48 plate appearances on the season.

  • Mets' Harrison Bader: Takes seat Saturday

    Bader isn't in the Mets' lineup Saturday against the Royals.

    Bader will get a day off after going 2-for-4 with a run scored and a stolen base in Friday's win. Brandon Nimmo will shift to center field in Bader's absence as Jeff McNeil moves to left field, allowing Joey Wendle to start at the keystone while batting ninth.

  • Mets' Harrison Bader: Nabs second steal

    Bader went 2-for-4 with a run scored and a stolen base in Friday's 6-1 win over the Royals.

    Batting ninth against right-hander Michael Wacha, Bader produced his third straight two-hit performance while swiping his second bag of the season. The 29-year-old center fielder is still looking for his first extra-base hit or RBI of 2024, but he's providing a bit of an offensive spark for the Mets at the bottom of the order, batting .282 (11-for-39) in 11 games with six runs scored.

  • Mets' Harrison Bader: Not in Monday's lineup

    Bader is not in the lineup for Monday's game versus Atlanta, Anthony DiComo of reports.

    It would appear to be a routine day off for Bader, who is 5-for-26 with zero RBI in his first eight games this season. Brandon Nimmo will slide over to center field, Jeff McNeil will handle left, and Joey Wendle will get a start at second base.

  • Mets' Harrison Bader: Swipes first bag of season

    Bader went 1-for-3 with a walk, a run scored and a stolen base in Friday's win over the Reds.

    Getting the start in center field and batting eighth, Bader drew a free pass in the seventh inning off Fernando Cruz with out one and promptly got himself into scoring position. It was the first steal of the season for Bader, and the 29-year-old has started six of the Mets' first seven games, batting .222 (4-for-18) with a 1:7 BB:K. He swiped a career-high 20 bases in 2023, but Bader's poor on-base skills will make it tough for him to improve significantly on that performance.

  • Mets' Harrison Bader: Sitting for first game of twin bill

    Bader is out of the lineup for the first game of Thursday's doubleheader with the Tigers.

  • Mets' Harrison Bader: Ready for Opening Day

    Bader has hit .241 (7-for-29) this spring with two homers, two steals and a 3:4 BB:K.

    The 29-year-old is locked in as the Mets' starting center fielder after signing a one-year, $10.5 million contract with the club in January. Bader stole a career-high 20 bases in 2023 in only 98 games split between the Yankees and Reds, but he slashed only .232/.274/.348. He's expected to hit in the bottom half of the order for the Mets, muting his fantasy appeal further.

  • Mets' Harrison Bader: Named everyday center fielder

    Manager Carlos Mendoza said Monday that Bader (groin) will serve as the Mets' everyday center fielder this season, Pat Ragazzo of reports.

    Brandon Nimmo has seen the bulk of the starts in center field for the Mets in each of the past four seasons, but he's graded out as an average-to-below-average defender in most of those years and will shift to left field to make room for Bader, who should represent a notable upgrade with the glove. Durability hasn't been a strong suit for Bader in recent seasons, however, and even when healthy, he's taken a step backward at the plate since his last full campaign with St. Louis in 2021. In the ensuing two seasons, Bader has cobbled together an underwhelming .251/.299/.393 slash line (89 wRC+) over 1,058 plate appearances with three different teams. His defense and $10.5 million salary should keep Bader's playing time secure in his first season with the Mets, but expect him to bat near the bottom of the lineup and provide most of his fantasy value in the steals category, after he pilfered a career-high 20 bags in 2023 despite playing in only 98 games. The 29-year-old underwent surgery at the end of last season to address a groin strain suffered in September, but he said Monday that he will "absolutely" be ready for Opening Day, even if the Mets elect to ease him along slowly in camp, according to Tim Healey of Newsday.

  • Mets' Harrison Bader: Nets one-year deal from Mets

    Bader signed a one-year, $10.5 million contract with the Mets on Thursday, Andy Martino of reports.

    Bader has slashed just .241/.284/.352 over 657 plate appearances since the start of the 2022 campaign but remains one of the premier center field defenders in the game. The 29-year-old should see the bulk of the starts in center for the Mets, allowing Brandon Nimmo to shift to left field. Nimmo is expected to still play some center versus righties, which would likely mean DJ Stewart in left those days. Bader also provides some protection in the event Starling Marte gets hurt again, although Bader has been pretty brittle himself.
