Mets Player Performance Meter, Week 13: Pitchers

Get well soon, Dillon Gee. Real soon.
Get well soon, Dillon Gee. Real soon.

It was an ugly week for the Mets' pitching staff, to say the least. While the starting rotation has been a strength all year, it has had a very bad stretch just before and immediately after the All Star break.

Player Last Week This Week Comment
Miguel Batista, RHP Batista allowed just 1 run in 4.1 innings, but he had 5 — five! — walks in that span. Brutal.
Pedro Beato, RHP Beato surprisingly has 4 K in his first 2 IP in the big leagues this year, but don't expect that rate to continue.
Tim Byrdak, LHP Despite handing out walks like candy, Byrdak kept the damage to a minimum.
R.A. Dickey, RHP The peripherals were there — 8.25 K/9 and 2.25 BB/9 — but the results were not as Dickey put up two bad starts for a 7.50 ERA.
Josh Edgin, LHP Don't let Edgin's 7.71 ERA fool you. With 6 K in 2.1 IP, he's at 23.14 K/9 in his (very young) career.
Frank Francisco, RHP Francisco apparently suffered a setback in his attempt to return, and the Mets miss his arm.
Dillon Gee, RHP Gee gave up one run in eight innings in what could be his final start of the season.
Jon Niese, LHP The Cubs tattooed Niese for 7 runs in 7 innings, and he only had 3 K in the outing.
Bobby Parnell, RHP Yes, he blew an almighty save, but Parnell didn't walk anyone in his three appearances. He should be fine.
Ramon Ramirez, RHP Ramirez gets the green arrow for 5.2 scoreless, but he walked more opponents than he struck out, which does not usually work.
Jon Rauch, RHP He threw just one inning, but he didn't allow a run in it.
Johan Santana, LHP Santana was just as bad as Dickey this week, and watching them both struggle is never fun.
Chris Young, RHP As bas as some of his teammates were, Young managed to be the worst. He surrendered 5 runs in 3 IP to the Braves.

This week's player meter covers games between July 5 and 15.
