Mets Player Performance Meter: Pitchers, Week 11

A review of the Mets' pitchers over the last seven days.

Jim McIsaac

Over the last seven days, the Mets’ pitching got good results. Its 2.79 ERA ranked ninth in baseball for the week, though its 3.83 FIP ranked twentieth, mostly because of a high walk rate. Aside from a couple of clunker performances, however, things looked pretty good here. Scott Rice doesn't appear here because he was sent to Las Vegas before the Mets played this week.

Player Last Week This Week Comment
Vic Black, RHP Black only struck out one hitter and walked three in 4.1 innings, but he maintained a 0.00 ERA in the process—in large part because he only gave up two hits.
Bartolo Colon, RHP Colon continued his recent stretch of excellent pitching by giving up just a run while striking out seven and walking one in 7.1 innings. His 4.15 ERA on the year might not sound impressive, but one month ago today, it sat at 5.84.
Jacob deGrom, RHP Despite striking out four and walking just one in 5.2 innings, deGrom gave up nine hits and three runs (4.76 ERA) in his outing this week.
Josh Edgin, LHP Edgin walked two batters and struck out one in one inning of work spread over three appearances, but he was not charged with a run.
Dana Eveland, LHP In three outings totaling 3.1 innings, Eveland gave up just one hit and no runs. That’ll do.
Jeurys Familia, RHP With a 2.70 ERA, 4 strikeouts, and no walks in three-and-one-third innings, Familia was once again very effective. He’s at a 2.60 ERA and 3.11 FIP on the season now.
Dillon Gee, RHP Gee's throwing a bit in St. Lucie but not returning anytime soon.
Gonzalez Germen, RHP While allowing one run in three innings isn’t terrible, Germen walked more batters than he struck out and gave up a home run in his long-awaited return from the disabled list.
Daisuke Matsuzaka, RHP Dice-K continued his run as a pleasant surprise with a 1.29 ERA in two starts. He had to leave the second one after just one inning because of a severely upset stomach. Let’s just hope he cuts down his walks from his 6.64 per nine on the season before they start to catch up with him in a hurry.
Jenrry Mejia, RHP Mejia threw three-and-two-thirds perfect innings over three appearances. That’s about as good as a bounce-back week gets.
Jon Niese, LHP With his third straight great start, Niese is down to a 2.54 ERA on the season, which is one of the best marks in baseball.
Carlos Torres, RHP On Thursday, Torres gave up four runs and seven hits in four innings. Yesterday, he gave up just one run on three hits in four innings. Throw in a 1.2-inning scoreless outing on Wednesday, and he still had a 6.75 ERA. That’s about as wacky a week as a relief pitcher can have.
Zack Wheeler, RHP Wheeler had been very effective over the four starts preceding this one, but he gave up four runs in five innings to the lowly Padres while striking out four and walking three.
