Mets Player Performance Meter: Pitchers, Week 22

The Mets' pitching staff had few highlights over the past week.

Jason Miller

There's not much to be excited about with the Mets down the stretch this year, but at least the team has a few good pitchers worth watching in Jon Niese, Dillon Gee, and Zack Wheeler. All three figure to be mainstays in the team's 2014 rotation and have mostly been good in the second half.

This week's meter covers games from September 2 through 9.

Player Last Week This Week Comment
David Aardsma, RHP Aardsma has had a few good weeks, but the bad ones—like last week—have far outweighed them. He now has a 4.81 ERA and 5.30 FIP on the season, both of which are much worse than league average.
Scott Atchison, RHP He got shelled in his only appearance of the week.
Vic Black, RHP -- In four appearance since joining the Mets, Black has 2 K, 1 BB, and 1 HBP in 3 innings of work. He certainly throws hard, though.
Tim Byrdak, LHP -- Back from his shoulder surgery much sooner than expected, Byrdak has given up 2 runs in 2 innings so far.
Pedro Feliciano, LHP The return of Feliciano is a nice enough story, but his results in the big leagues have been pretty mixed.
Dillon Gee, RHP With another very good start, Gee has put the concerns of the first two months of this season behind him.
Gonzalez Germen, RHP Things had been going pretty well for Germen until last week, but he has been a train wreck lately.
Matt Harvey, RHP Harvey is set to see Dr. James Andrews this week for a second opinion.
LaTroy Hawkins, RHP Hawkins was nearly perfect with 4 K, 0 BB, and just 2 hits allowed in 3 innings.
Daisuke Matsuzaka, RHP Even with a good start yesterday, Matsuzaka's 7.27 ERA for the week is atrocious.
Jon Niese, LHP Things had been going really, really well since Niese came back from the disabled list. Let's hope this nightmare start was just a hiccup.
Bobby Parnell, RHP Parnell is still trying to avoid neck surgery, but there's no definite answer on that yet.
Scott Rice, LHP Rice threw just two-thirds of an inning before joining several of his peers on the shelf for the rest of the season.
Carlos Torres, RHP Excellent in his start, Torres has been one of the pleasant surprises of 2013 and deserves a spot in next year's bullpen.
Zack Wheeler, RHP With three runs—two earned—allowed in five innings, Wheeler's start was neither great nor terrible.
