Mets Player Performance Meter: Pitchers, Week 10

A look at how the Mets' pitchers performed over the last seven days.

Thearon W. Henderson

Although several Mets pitchers were pretty good this week, the team as a whole was not. Their 4.50 ERA over that span, which included a six-game losing streak, was the eleventh-worst mark in Major League Baseball. With a good strikeout and home run rates and a mediocre walk rate, the staff had a 3.34 FIP over that span, which was the seventh-best mark in baseball. So if the staff were to keep doing what it did over the last week, the results might look a little better.

Player Last Week This Week Comment
Vic Black, RHP With six strikeouts and just one walk in 2.2 innings, Black looked great. He gave up a solo home run, but this was an encouraging week.
Buddy Carlyle, RHP Carlyle threw one-and-one-third scoreless innings but was outrighted to Vegas when the Mets called up Andrew Brown. He has accepted his assignment and rejoined the 51s.
Bartolo Colon, RHP With a 2.13 ERA in two starts spanning 12.2 innings, Colon worked around 14 hits and walked an uncharacteristic five opponents. He’s down to a 4.31 ERA and 3.56 FIP on the season.
Jacob deGrom, RHP With four runs allowed in five innings, deGrom came down to earth a bit after posting a 2.42 ERA through his first four major league starts. He’s at 3.19 now with a 4.82 FIP.
Josh Edgin, LHP Edgin gave up one run on a home run over 1.1 innings for the week, which is bad, but he struck out three and didn’t walk anyone. He has at least looked like a capable major league pitcher, which is a pleasant surprise given the way he pitched last year and in spring training.
Dana Eveland, LHP -- The Mets’ second bullpen promotion following the extra-innings games in Philadelphia, Eveland posted a 3.00 ERA with 4 strikeouts and 1 walk in three innings of work.
Jeurys Familia, RHP The hard-throwing youngster threw three innings without allowing a run and struck out three without walking anyone.
Dillon Gee, RHP The righty has begun throwing but is not close to a return.
Gonzalez Germen, RHP Germen last pitched for the Mets on May 5 before hitting the disabled list with an illness and a separate medical issue in an area the Mets deemed unmentionable. But he should be back soon.
Daisuke Matsuzaka, RHP Moved to the rotation with the demotion of Rafael Montero, Matsuzaka gave up four runs in 4.1 innings, walked five, and struck out just two. His walk rate for the season stands at a staggering 17.1 percent.
Jenrry Mejia, RHP Since his move to the bullpen, Mejia had been nearly flawless before this week. But this one did not go well, as he gave up four runs in two appearances totaling just 1.1 innings.
Jon Niese, LHP It was just another effective outing for the lefty, who went seven innings and allowed just two runs. He’s having a fine season.
Scott Rice, LHP Rice allowed two runs in three appearances and recorded just three outs. That’s a bad ratio.
Carlos Torres, RHP Good: 6 strikeouts and 1 walk in 5 innings. Bad: 3 runs allowed in five innings.
Zack Wheeler, RHP Wheeler’s second start of the week was a short one on Sunday, but he still managed a 3.48 ERA with 13 strikeouts and 4 walks in 10.1 innings for the week.
