Mets Player Performance Meter, Week 15: Pitchers

Harvey Time.
Harvey Time.

The Mets have gone just 3-5 in their last eight games, but most of the team's pitchers have performed at least well enough to give the team a chance to win. The rotation's 3.87 ERA is now the eighth-best in baseball, but it ranked better at the beginning of the month. With a 5.05 ERA, though, the bullpen still ranks dead last.

Player Last Week This Week Comment
Manny Acosta, RHP Since his return to the big leagues, Acosta has a few strikeouts but still too many walks. He made things a bit too interesting last night, too, but all in all his was a good week.
Pedro Beato, RHP Beato's 108.00 ERA (not a typo) in one-third of an inning prompted a trip back to Buffalo.
Tim Byrdak, LHP Byrdak just hasn't been as good as he was last year.
R.A. Dickey, RHP He's back! 15 K and 4 BB with a 2.77 ERA in a pair of starts.
Josh Edgin, LHP With 9 K in 4.2 IP, Edgin's now rocking a 16.2 K/9 with the Mets. Awesome.
Frank Francisco, RHP Francisco is scheduled to pitch for Binghamton today and tomorrow as he works his way back from a strained oblique.
Dillon Gee, RHP Don't expect to see Gee until next year since the Mets are not close to contending.
Matt Harvey, RHP With 11 K, 3 BB, and 0 runs allowed, Harvey joined the Mets in grand fashion. He'll have a chance to repeat his success against the Giants tonight.
Jeremy Hefner, RHP Hefner's 4.63 ERA in two starts is deceiving. He deserved better, particularly in his start against the Giants last night.
Jon Niese, LHP The only good thing about Niese's awful start was that he went six innings to save the bullpen some work.
Bobby Parnell, RHP Parnell gets his strikeouts, but he just can't afford to issue walks. He walked 3 in 3.1 innings and wound up giving up 2 runs.
Elvin Ramirez, RHP His 7.36 ERA on the week is discouraging, but he did manage 4 K and 1 BB in 3.2 innings. So far in his major league career, he has an 8.18 ERA, 8.18 K/9, and 8.18 BB/9.
Ramon Ramirez, RHP Good results, bad process means no green arrow for Ramirez this week.
Jon Rauch, RHP He may not have struck anyone out, but he gave up just 1 BB, 1 hit, and 1 run in 3.1 innings. He hasn't been as good as his contract, but he's been decent.
Johan Santana, LHP Santana is scheduled to throw off a mound on Thursday as he works towards a return from an ankle injury.
Chris Young, RHP Young had one good start against the Nationals and one very bad start against the Diamondbacks. That he has thrown 57.0 innings over 10 starts for the Mets this year is a surprise.
