He's got an Edgin.
The Mets' pitching staff fared well on the team's eleven-game, west-coast road trip. Between the rotation and the bullpen, only a couple pitchers were truly bad.
|Player||Last Week||This Week||Comment|
|Manny Acosta, RHP||Acosta threw one scoreless inning in his only appearance this week. He hasn't pitched very much since he came back to the big leagues.|
|Tim Byrdak, LHP||Byrdak pitched 1.1 scoreless innings in what was likely the end of his time with the Mets. He'll be out for quite a while after learning he tore his anterior capsule in his pitching shoulder.|
|R.A. Dickey, RHP||Dickey appears to be back to his awesome first-half self.|
|Josh Edgin, LHP||He only threw two scoreless innings this week, but Edgin is looking like the Mets' best relief pitcher.|
|Frank Francisco, RHP||Frank Frank made his long-awaited return and retired the only two batters he faced for a save.|
|Dillon Gee, RHP||To put it simply, there's no way that Gee will be rushed back into action this year.|
|Matt Harvey, RHP||Although he had 12 K and 4 BB in 11 IP, Harvey got lit up by the light-hitting Padres in Petco Park after a very good start in San Francisco.|
|Jeremy Hefner, RHP||Hef allowed just one run in his six-inning start. He has a 5.04 ERA, but his 3.70 FIP — thanks to his very low rate of 1.62 BB/9 — says he's been much better than that.|
|Jon Niese, LHP||With 5 K, 2 BB, and just 1 run allowed in 7 IP, Niese got back on track after an ugly start his last time out.|
|Bobby Parnell, RHP||Parnell's had a good year, but he hasn't been great of late.|
|Elvin Ramirez, RHP||With Garrett Olson on the way, it looks like Ramirez will be back in Buffalo again very shortly.|
|Ramon Ramirez, RHP||Ramirez hasn't lived up to expectations all season long, and he stunk again this week.|
|Jon Rauch, RHP||No strikeouts, walks, hits, or runs allowed for Rauch this week. It works.|
|Johan Santana, LHP||After a successful rehab start for the Brooklyn Cyclones on Sunday, Santana is set to make his return to the Mets' rotation against the Braves on Saturday at Citi Field.|
|Chris Young, RHP||Young threw seven strong innings again. If the Mets were in the hunt, his pleasant surprise of a season would probably be getting more attention.|
