What is happening with Lucas Duda’s production?

Mets first baseman Lucas Duda’s season has been enigmatic.

Jacob deGrom didn’t pitch long, but long enough to show why rival scouts and opposing general managers salivate when they catch a glimpse of him, and why his popularity is soaring. The 2014 NL Rookie of the Year struck out the side in the fifth inning, and needed only ten pitches to do it. Overpowering is too tame a word. He was nasty. He was filthy. He was special.
