Mets Player Performance Meter: Pitchers, Week 4

How did each of the Mets' pitchers do over the past week?

Jeurys Familia finally had a good week in the big leagues.
Jeurys Familia finally had a good week in the big leagues.

The Mets' early string of pitching success is now a distant memory. The team sports a 4.40 ERA, which ranks 26th in baseball, and its 4.16 FIP isn't much better at 24th. Mets starting pitchers have been decent, but the team's bullpen owns a 5.35 ERA, the second-highest in the game. Basically, things have been pretty ugly this year and particularly so over the past week.

Player Last Week This Week Comment
Scott Atchison, RHP Atchison's line for the week—3.86 ERA with 1 K and 1 BB in 2.1 IP—doesn't reflect how terribly he pitched in relief of Niese yesterday.
Robert Carson, LHP -- The horror.
Josh Edgin, LHP Despite good strikeout and walk rates—9.6 K/9 and 3.9 BB/9—Edgin was demoted to Double-A Binghamton with a 9.64 ERA thus far in the big league season.
Jeurys Familia, RHP Jeurys Familia had a good week out of the Mets' bullpen. Let's hope that's the case again this week.
Dillon Gee, RHP Gee cruised through five innings but then got shellacked by the Phillies in the sixth.
Matt Harvey, RHP Harvey notched 7 K to just 1 BB in 6 IP, which was good. He gave up three runs, including a two-run home run to Matt Kemp, which wasn't quite as good.
LaTroy Hawkins, RHP It was another good week for the least appreciated pitcher in the Mets' bullpen.
Jeremy Hefner, RHP 7 innnings, 1 run: That's perfectly acceptable and was Hefner's best outing of the year. Unfortunately, the Mets still lost the game.
Brandon Lyon, RHP In three appearances, Lyon allowed three runs, zero runs, and one run. It was not his finest week.
Shaun Marcum, RHP -- Marcum's Mets debut was less than stellar, but he should be better next time out there if he's healthy.
Jon Niese, LHP Despite posting a 2.00 ERA in 9 innings—his first start lasted just 2.1 because he was drilled with a ground ball—Niese wasn't particularly impressive but avoided poor results.
Bobby Parnell, RHP Just 2.2 more scoreless innings for the Mets' best relief pitcher.
Scott Rice, LHP Just okay in four outings, it'll be surprising if Rice's arm doesn't fall off. The Mets have played 23 games. Rice has appeared in 14.
