Mets Player Performance Meter: Pitchers, Week 10

Believe it or not, Mets pitchers had a pretty good week.

Ten weeks into the season, the Mets have allowed 4.76 runs per game, the fourth-worst mark in Major League Baseball. If there's an upside here, it's that the starting rotation has been pretty good, as its 3.60 FIP is the sixth-best in the game. Their 4.06 ERA ranks a much more modest 16th, but the rotation should be the least of the team's worries right now.

This week's player meter covers the four games the Mets played since last Monday: two against the Nationals on the road and a pair of extra-inning losses to the Marlins at home.

Player Last Week This Week Comment
David Aardsma, RHP -- He looked good in his first apperance as a Met, which was just his second appearance in the big leagues since 2010.
Scott Atchison, RHP Having received confirmation from Dr. James Andrews that his elbow does not require surgery, Atchison will attempt to rehab his arm back to the big leagues.
Greg Burke, RHP Burke gave up just one hit in 1.2 innings of work.
Robert Carson, LHP Carson gave up his eighth home run of the year yesterday and was part of the Mets' roster shakeup after the game.
Jeurys Familia, RHP With the news that Familia needed surgery on his pitching elbow, this will be the last player meter he's on until he returns to the mound. That might not happen this year.
Dillon Gee, RHP With another good start—7 innings, 1 run allowed, 7 K, and 1 BB—Gee's looked a lot like his 2012 self lately. That's a very good thing.
Matt Harvey, RHP The Mets' ace pitched very well in the first 7 innings of Saturday's game, but he had to leave with lower back tightness. The good news is that he won't miss his next start.
LaTroy Hawkins, RHP With just an inning over two appearances, Hawkins didn't do anything particularly notable.
Jeremy Hefner, RHP Like Gee, Hefner gave up just 1 run in 7 innings with 7 K and 1 BB.
Brandon Lyon, RHP He's quietly put together a 3.24 ERA and 3.31 FIP this year out of the Mets' bullpen, and he pitched 3 innings without allowing a run this week.
Shaun Marcum, RHP Marcum threw eight innings and gave up just one run as a relief pitcher in the Mets' 20-inning loss on Saturday. His 2.90 FIP suggests he's been a lot better this year than his 4.96 ERA indicates.
Collin McHugh, RHP McHugh was demoted shortly after his bad spot start in the previous week.
Jon Niese, LHP He looked okay physically, which was great to see after he missed a start with tendinitis in his pitching shoulder, but his outing against the Marlins was just decent.
Bobby Parnell, RHP Well, Parnell wasn't likely to go the whole season without having a bad week.
Scott Rice, LHP He still has great numbers against left-handed hitters, but it was the left-handed Derek Dietrich who hit a game-tying home run against Rice yesterday.
