Make-The-Mets-O-Meter: Pitchers, Vol. 2

Last week we met all of the pretty ladies. Now that we've got the gravitas of, in some cases, six whole innings of work against a pastiche of retreads and nonentities, let's see whose stock is on the rise and who might need another two, maybe three innings of solid performance to start turning some heads.

Jenrry Mejia is the only addition to the list over last week's; nobody has dropped off yet.

UPDATE: Added Kiko Calero as well.

Player Comment
Travis Blackley, LHP Will earn five hundred dollery-doos if he makes the team. I made that up.
Kiko Calero, RHP Just signed late last week, but will hopefully see some action soon.
Elmer Dessens, RHP Losing the numbers game. Lost the numbers game in 2009 but still appeared in 28 games with the Mets.
R.A. Dickey, RHP Three walks and nine hits in five innings. But hey, knuckleballer!
Jack Egbert, RHP Two walks, three strikeouts, and a single in two innings.
Clint Everts, RHP* One appearance so far. Two strikeouts in 1.1 innings.
Josh Fogg, RHP Still has that great nickname.
Nelson Figueroa, RHP* Eight strikeouts, three walks, and three singles in six innings. Figgy seems to have the inside track for the last spot in the starting rotation.
Eddie Kunz, RHP* Three walks, four earned runs, no strikeouts in 1.1 innings. 27.00 ERA.
Bobby Livingston, LHP Five whiffs in 4.2 innings. Southpaw. Uhh…
Arturo Lopez, LHP Milk carton time.
Jay Marshall, LHP* Nothing thus far.
Jenrry Mejia, RHP Mejia wasn't even on the MTMOM last week, but with Jerry Manuel riding on the crazy talk express, anything is possible.
Pat Misch, LHP* No runs allowed in six inings and a groundball-to-flyball ratio of 4.00. Lefty to boot.
Carlos Muñiz, RHP Hasn't pitched yet. Is that a bad sign?
Jon Niese, LHP* He's got five kays and zero injuries in 2.2 innings, but Figueroa seems to be leading this race so far.
Eric Niesen, LHP Two runs and six baserunners in 3.2 innings so far.
Fernando Nieve, RHP* Three hits, two walks, two strikeouts in three innings. He was already trailing Figueroa in the fifth starter derby, and now Takahashi is jockeying for position.
Bobby Parnell, RHP* Four strikeouts in four innings: good. Six hits, three walks, and three runs: less so. The Mejia lovefest isn't doing him any favors.
Tobi Stoner, RHP* Just one hit allowed in 2.1 innings, but it was a solo homerun.
Hisanori Takahashi, LHP Hisa tossed three scoreless innings in his first spring appearance, striking out six, walking none, and allowing one hit—a seeing-eye single.

Key:
= Chance of making the Mets is unchanged.
= Chance of making the Mets is going down.
= Chance of making the Mets is going up.
* = player on 40-man roster
