The New York Mets brought in Jake Marisnick before the 2020 season as a defensive specialist to replace Juan Lagares. Marisnick also brought in more power than Lagares, but injuries limited him to only 33 at-bats over the short 60 game season.

The Mets also brought in Marisnick as a good bat to start against left-handed pitching. Despite his career average being slightly higher versus lefties, his career slugging percentage is 50 points higher against southpaws.
