After a 2-3 night with 2 RBI and a run scored, Kyle Johnson finds himself out of the lineup. It's not for poor performance or inability but rather the amount of depth in the B-Mets outfield. Manager Pedro Lopez has five players for three outfield positions and needs to get everyone a fair amount of at bats. Johnson says he's never been in a platoon before this season, so it took a little time to adjust, but a month into the season, he's getting the hang of it.
His goal every time he's in the lineup is to make the most of his opportunities. So far, it's a success. After Wednesday, Johnson owns and eight game hit streak and has a hit in ten of his last 11 games. He's batting .417 during the hitting streak and and has raised his batting average 53 percentage points in the mean time. His 2 RBI last night now make him 10-16 with runners in scoring position on the season.
