Mets Player Performance Meter: Pitchers, Week 19 — Dillon Gee, Zack Wheeler impressive

The Mets' pitching staff is still a strength, and a pair of starting pitchers stepped up as Matt Harvey had a somewhat human week.

Hannah Foslien

As a team, the Mets can pitch. Their 3.72 ERA ranks 11th in baseball this year, and their 3.73 FIP ranks 9th. The starting rotation is still the anchor of the team's pitching stats, but the Mets' bullpen has improved quite a bit since the start of the season. They were also pretty good this week.

This meter covers Mets games from August 12 through 19.

Player Last Week This Week Comment
David Aardsma, RHP He only made one apperance, but it was a stinker: 4 runs, 2 K, 2 BB, and 6 hits in 2 innings.
Scott Atchison, RHP He may not have struck anyone out, but he still threw three scoreless innings.
Pedro Feliciano, LHP The shine came off a bit as Feliciano struggled in three appearances totaling 1.2 innings.
Dillon Gee, RHP His stats for the season won’t look great because of a terrible first two months, but Gee’s been great, especially this week. In two starts, he had a 1.32 ERA, 8.56 K/9, and 1.32 BB/9.
Gonzalez Germen, RHP Despite a miserable walk rate, Germen once again got the job done with 5 K in 3.2 innings. He now has a 2.88 FIP for the season in 18 innings.
Matt Harvey, RHP Harvey had one of his only poor starts of the year before bouncing back with a decent one. In total, his numbers this week were merely okay.
LaTroy Hawkins, RHP Hawkins has mostly been good filling in for Parnell, but he served up a two-run, game-tying home run in one of his two outings this week.
Jeremy Hefner, RHP Hefner might have to undergo Tommy John surgery, which would suck.
Jenrry Mejia, RHP & He continued to flash excellent stuff with great results, but Mejia hit the disabled list and is likely out until next spring as he’ll have bone spurs removed from his pitching elbow.
Jon Niese, LHP With 9 K, 1 BB, and just 1 run allowed, Niese was great. By game score, it was his best start of the 2013 season.
Bobby Parnell, RHP There's still no word on whether or not Parnell will need surgery on his neck, but he's seeing a doctor today.
Scott Rice, LHP Rice continues his very effective work out of the bullpen and has been good for nearly a month
Carlos Torres, RHP Torres was undoubtedly overworked, and he posted a 4.91 ERA and gave up a pair of home runs in 7.1 innings.
Zack Wheeler, RHP Well, hello, Zack Wheeler. With 12 strikeouts and just 1 walk, the 23-year-old’s most recent start was his best in the big leagues.
