Mets Player Performance Meter, Week 19

New, comments

After suffering a pair of brutal losses in Philadelphia, the Mets won the series finale on Wednesday, a great game for David Wright. They managed to play one game before the city prepared for Hurricane Irene, and it featured Chris Capuano's thireteen-strikeout, no-walk, complete-game shutout. The start was easily one of the Mets' top starting pitching performances over the past several years.

All stats below run from August 22 through August 26.

Player Last Week This Week Comment
Manny Acosta, RP I'm still not a believer in Acosta's small-sample walk rate from this year, but it's working out in the short term.
Mike Baxter He only got one plate apperance.
Jason Bay, LF In three games, Bay only reached base three times, all via the base on balls.
Pedro Beato, RP He hit a batter and allowed a run on a pair of hits in his only appearance.
Tim Byrdak, RP Just another day at the office for the lefty: three strikeouts and no walks in one inning of work over two appearances. I wouldn't mind seeing him back in 2012.
Chris Capuano, SP Capuano's gem rated as the best single-game pitching performance of the season by Game Score, and his 13 K were a career high.
D.J. Carrasco, RP He pitched a couple of scoreless innings in his lone appearance, which is better than usual.
R.A. Dickey, SP Dickey was the only starter who didn't pitch in this span, but he gets a positive review because he's R.A. freakin' Dickey.
Lucas Duda Duda's early-season struggles seem a distant memory. In the past four games, he posted a 1.250 OPS.
Nick Evans The Invisible Man crushed the ball in his fifteen trips to the plate to the tune of a 1.683 OPS, including a home run against the hated Phillies.
Dillon Gee, SP Gee's walk-tastic ways were back in effect in this start. He issued six free passes in only three-and-two-thirds innings.
Scott Hairston, OF Only three trips to the plate, none of which resulted in Hairston reaching base.
Willie Harris, OF Two singles in very limited playing time is good by Harris' 2011 standards.
Ryota Igarashi, RP it wasn't quite as ugly as last week, but Igarashi still fared poorly in two outings.
Jason Isringhausen, RP The last time Izzy pitched was August 21, but it's probably a good thing that he's gotten a long break.
Jonathon Niese, SP Good peripherals (6 K, 1 BB, 4 IP), very bad results (18.00 ERA). He'll be all right.
Angel Pagan, CF After tearing the cover off the ball last week, Pagan cooled off quite a bit.
Bobby Parnell, RP Captain Fastball threw a pair of scoreless innings and notched his first save of the year, if you're into that sort of thing.
Ronny Paulino, C Paulino got on base a couple of times but didn't play a whole lot.
Mike Pelfrey, SP Even with only one start, Pelfrey was perfectly fit for the side-arrow, throwing six innings, striking out and walking two batters a piece.
Jason Pridie, CF Pridie got on base at a .429 clip in his seven trips to the batter's box.
Jose Reyes, SS Reyes makes his return to the Mets' lineup today.
Ruben Tejada I didn't believe it when Tejada earned the fire last week, but he did it again. This time, his slash line was .438/.471/.500.
Josh Thole, C Thole stunk up the joint with the bat this week.
Justin Turner, 2B Turner made a few nifty plays in the field while putting up below-average production at the plate, which isn't the end of the world.
David Wright, 3B The bulk of his .286/.353/.500 slash line came in the final game in Philadelphia.
