New, 27 comments

A review of the Mets' pitching performances over the past seven days.

Noah K. Murray-USA TODAY Sports

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.

Player Last Week This Week Comment
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.
