Frank Frank hasn't allowed a run in his last seven appearances. Progress!
Since the last player meter for pitchers, rosters have been expanded, which means there are several new faces on the Mets' roster. The team's starting rotation ranks ninth in Major League Baseball with its 3.81 ERA — just barely trailing the Phillies for eighth — while the bullpen's 4.75 ERA ranks twenty-ninth.
|Player||Last Week||This Week||Comment|
|Manny Acosta, RHP||With three more good outings, Acosta has a 7.62 ERA on the season and a 2.12 ERA since he was recalled in late July.|
|Robert Carson, LHP||He allowed 3 runs in just 2.1 innings on 2 K and 1 BB.|
|R.A. Dickey, RHP||The march to the Cy Young Award continues.|
|Josh Edgin, LHP||It'll be surprising if Edgin's not on the Opening Day roster in 2013.|
|Jeurys Familia, RHP||Thus far in Familia's MLB career, he's had one good and one bad outing pitching in relief. No word on whether or not he'll get a start or two before the season ends.|
|Frank Francisco, RHP||Look who's finally pitching like a capable reliever. Better late than never, I guess.|
|Justin Hampson, LHP||No strikeouts or walks and one run in 1.1 innings for the journeyman lefty.|
|Matt Harvey, RHP||Harvey's last start wasn't all that good: 5 IP, 3 R, 4 K, and 3 BB.|
|Jeremy Hefner, RHP||Not a good stretch for Hefner, who's probably better suited for the bullpen at this point of the season.|
|Collin McHugh, RHP||McHugh came back when rosters expanded but got a bit lit up by the potent Cardinals offense. #BlameBeltran|
|Jenrry Mejia, RHP||It seems like many years since Mejia joined the Mets' bullpen at the age of 20, but he's still just 22 and throwing gas out of the bullpen. He'll get a start next week.|
|Jon Niese, LHP||While not dominant, Niese's last start was quite good. His August-September woes look to be a thing of the past.|
|Bobby Parnell, RHP||Pretty meh week for Captain Fastball.|
|Elvin Ramirez, RHP||Ramirez hasn't looked ready for the big leagues in any of his brief stints with the Mets yet.|
|Ramon Ramirez, RHP||He had been good for a while, but that hasn't been the case lately.|
|Jon Rauch, RHP||He's having the quietest pretty good season in recent Mets history.|
|Chris Young, RHP||He bounced back from a bad start with a couple of good ones. He's thrown 96.1 innings over 17 starts, by far his most work since 2008.|
This week's player meter covers games between August 31 and September 9.
