The Mets might have had a dreadful week as a team, but their pitching staff was thoroughly average. With a 3.50 ERA, they sat in the middle of the Major League Baseball pack at fifteenth for the week. On a per-nine basis, Mets pitchers struck out 8.0, walked 3.67, and gave up one home run. Here's how they did individually.
|Bartolo Colon, RHP
|Thanks to baseball’s rain rules, Colon’s outing on Friday night never happened.
|Jacob deGrom, RHP
|deGrom’s second big league start wasn’t as good as his first, but he still put together a quality start.
|Jeurys Familia, RHP
|With two strikeouts, a walk, and one run allowed in 3.0 innings, Familia recovered nicely from his bad previous week.
|Dillon Gee, RHP
|Gee hasn’t made much progress with his strained lat and doesn’t sound like he will be back soon.
|Gonzalez Germen, RHP
|Germen hit the disabled list a while ago with an illness. He’s still there because of an abscess at an "undisclosed location."
|Daisuke Matsuzaka, RHP
|Between a couple of relief outings and a spot start in the second game of Sunday’s doubleheader, Matsuzaka was solid.
|Rafael Montero, RHP
|Montero’s 14 strikeouts in 10.1 innings over two starts were great, but he also issued 7 walks in the process. His first start of the week went very poorly, but he was far better in his second.
|Jenrry Mejia, RHP
|Clearly the Mets’ official closer, Mejia had another excellent week out of the bullpen, as he posted a 0.00 ERA in four appearances.
|Jon Niese, LHP
|Niese bounced back from a poor start with a pretty good one, allowing three runs in seven innings.
|Scott Rice, LHP
|Rice didn’t give up any runs, but he struck out one and walked two in two-thirds of an inning, which definitely isn’t ideal.
|Carlos Torres, RHP
|With a 2.08 ERA in four-and-one-third innings, it was another routine good week on the mound for Torres, who now has a 2.83 ERA and 2.49 FIP on the season.
|Jose Valverde, RHP
|Papa Grande’s 10.80 ERA was the worst mark on the team this week.
|Zack Wheeler, RHP
|Wheeler gave up just two runs in six-and-two-thirds innings of work, and he struck out seven while just walking one. He hit a couple of batters, but all in all, it was a good outing.
