He's got an Edgin.

The Mets' pitching staff fared well on the team's eleven-game, west-coast road trip. Between the rotation and the bullpen, only a couple pitchers were truly bad.

Player Last Week This Week Comment
Manny Acosta, RHP Acosta threw one scoreless inning in his only appearance this week. He hasn't pitched very much since he came back to the big leagues.
Tim Byrdak, LHP Byrdak pitched 1.1 scoreless innings in what was likely the end of his time with the Mets. He'll be out for quite a while after learning he tore his anterior capsule in his pitching shoulder.
R.A. Dickey, RHP Dickey appears to be back to his awesome first-half self.
Josh Edgin, LHP He only threw two scoreless innings this week, but Edgin is looking like the Mets' best relief pitcher.
Frank Francisco, RHP Frank Frank made his long-awaited return and retired the only two batters he faced for a save.
Dillon Gee, RHP To put it simply, there's no way that Gee will be rushed back into action this year.
Matt Harvey, RHP Although he had 12 K and 4 BB in 11 IP, Harvey got lit up by the light-hitting Padres in Petco Park after a very good start in San Francisco.
Jeremy Hefner, RHP Hef allowed just one run in his six-inning start. He has a 5.04 ERA, but his 3.70 FIP — thanks to his very low rate of 1.62 BB/9 — says he's been much better than that.
Jon Niese, LHP With 5 K, 2 BB, and just 1 run allowed in 7 IP, Niese got back on track after an ugly start his last time out.
Bobby Parnell, RHP Parnell's had a good year, but he hasn't been great of late.
Elvin Ramirez, RHP With Garrett Olson on the way, it looks like Ramirez will be back in Buffalo again very shortly.
Ramon Ramirez, RHP Ramirez hasn't lived up to expectations all season long, and he stunk again this week.
Jon Rauch, RHP No strikeouts, walks, hits, or runs allowed for Rauch this week. It works.
Johan Santana, LHP After a successful rehab start for the Brooklyn Cyclones on Sunday, Santana is set to make his return to the Mets' rotation against the Braves on Saturday at Citi Field.
Chris Young, RHP Young threw seven strong innings again. If the Mets were in the hunt, his pleasant surprise of a season would probably be getting more attention.

This week's player meter covers games between July 31 and August 5.
