Mets 2023 Starting Lineup Stat Predictions

The Mets’ lineup certainly had strengths and weaknesses during the 2022 season, and there is still much to look forward to with how it could produce in 2023. So without further ado, here are my predictions of how those players in the starting lineup will perform in 2023.

Brandon Nimmo, CF

Brandon Nimmo had a very good 2022 campaign, posting a .274/.367/.433 slash-line with 16 homers, 64 rbis, and 102 runs scored. He played well enough to earn himself a 8-year, $162-million contract to keep him as the Mets center fielder for many years to come.

My Nimmo stats predictions:

  • Batting average: .272
  • On base percentage: .358
  • Slugging percentage: .425
  • Home runs: 13
  • Rbis: 67

Francisco Lindor, SS

After his shaky 2021 campaign, Francisco Lindor put up all star stats in 2022, with a .270/ .339/ .449 slash-line with 26 home runs,107 rbis and 98 runs scored, proving everyone that said he wasn’t good anymore wrong and showing just how good he is going to be as the Mets shortstop for the next couple of years. 

My Lindor Stat Predictions:

  • Batting Average: .276
  • On base percentage: .333
  • Slugging percentage: .434
  • Home runs: 19
  • Rbis: 102

Starling Marte,RF

Starling Marte was added in the 2021-2022 offseason as an addition to their previously below average outfield, and he turned out to be a very valuable addition to their lineup, slashing .292/ .347/ .468 with 16 home runs, 63 rbis, and 76 runs scored. He was added to improve their lineup and he did just that, and he sure has more to come for 2023.

My Marte Stat Predictions:

  • Batting average: .282
  • On base percentage: .345
  • Slugging percentage: .421
  • Home runs: 14
  • Rbis: 62

Pete Alonso,1B

Another season, another year of the polar bear mashing homers, 2022 all star Pete Alsono hit with a slash-line of .271/.352/.518 with 40 homers, 131 rbis, and 95 runs scored. Pete Alonso had an amazing career year, leading the league in rbis and finishing second in the nl with homers, it’s safe to say that Pete Alonso is going to keep dominating the mlb at first base for years to come.

My Alonso Stat Predictions:

  • Batting Average: .268
  • On base percentage: .342
  • Slugging percentage: .495
  • Home runs: 37
  • Rbis: 115

Jeff McNeil, 2B

Another player that did not have a good 2021 season, Jeff Mcneil came in to the 2022 season looking to improve from his rough 2021 season, and he did just that and more with a slash-line of .326/.382/.454 with 9 home runs, 62 rbis, and 73 runs scored. He won the MLB batting title with his .326 batting average, and got himself an all star game appearance and silver slugging award as well.

My Mcneil Stat predictions:

  • Batting average: .298
  • On base percentage: .324
  • Slugging percentage: .411
  • Home runs: 7
  • Rbis: 62

Because this article has been getting a little long, and I’m only doing players that are guaranteed to be in the starting lineup, I will be making a separate part of this after, so stay tuned for the next part that and thank you for reading!
