Make-The-Mets-O-Meter: Week 2 - Pitchers

New, comments

We're a week into spring training games and, even though there haven't been any official cuts, and even though it's nigh impossible to draw any meaningful conclusions from spring training performances, we nevertheless have some inkling of the likely fortunes of some of the players in camp.

The pitchers.

Player Comment
Michael Antonini, LHP Had a bad intra-squad game last week.
Tony Armas, RHP Is he even in camp?
Adam Bostick, LHP A run on a hit and three walks in one inning. Yea, it's just an inning, but he's not going to get too many more.
Rocky Cherry, RHP* Three hits and a run in an inning of work, but he's a Rule 5 draftee so he's got some wind at his back.
Valerio De Los Santos, LHP One inning. One run. Can these guys do anything else?
Matt DeSalvo, RHP Gets a lot of groundballs but doesn't do anything else particularly well.
Elmer Dessens, RHP 38 years old. Has had exactly one good year as a starter and zero as a reliever.
Nelson Figueroa, RHP Three innings! One run. One homerun. Two strikeouts!
Casey Fossum, LHP Coupla innings, no runs, two hits, two whiffs.
Freddy Garcia, RHP Roughed up in his first spring start, coughing up four runs on two hits and three walks in two-thirds of an inning.
Dillon Gee, RHP One hit allowed in two innings of work. His odds are long, but he's been better than most.
Livan Hernandez, RHP Was un-terrible in the same game in which Garcia got mauled. Still fat.
Brandon Knight, RHP* Not good.
Eddie Kunz, RHP* Hasn't pitched. Is that bad?
Tom Martin, LHP Struck out the only batter he faced. Also, likes killing animals for sport. Manly.
Carlos Muniz, RHP* Bupkis.
Jon Niese, LHP* Not doing himself any favors just yet.
Darren O'Day, RHP* Apparently not injured, the Rule 5 selection from the Angels has thrown two scoreless innings.
Bobby Parnell, RHP* Good: two scoreless innings. Bad: three walks.
Connor Robertson, RHP* Two scoreless innings for the Diamondbacks' answer to Omar Minaya's pleas of "I don't care. I'll take anybody." while shopping Scott Schoeneweis this winter.
Heriberto Ruelas, LHP In camp. Pitched. Not good.
Kyle Snyder, RHP One hit in one inning, a'singin', "Tri-ple-A, just a bus ride a-way".
Brian Stokes, RHP* I like the dude. Two strikeouts and a homerun allowed in three innings.
Tobi Stoner, RHP Soon to be joining Billy Bong Thornton and Wesley Pipes in Triple-A Buffalo.
John Switzer, LHP He pitched an inning the other day, so there's that, I guess.

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
