Mets Player Performance Meter: Pitchers, Week 15

The Mets got some excellent pitching this week.

Anthony Gruppuso-USA TODAY Sports

As weeks of baseball seasons go, the Mets' most recent was one of the best. On top of a very good week at the plate, the Mets got some very good pitching. And even the poor pitching performances this week came in small doses.

Player Last Week This Week Comment
Vic Black, RHP Black wasn’t particularly dominant in terms of strikeouts, but he was mostly effective in four outings.
Buddy Carlyle, RHP -- With a hit and a walk and one run allowed in 1.2 innings, Carlyle wasn’t quite as good as his peers this week.
Bartolo Colon, P In his lone start this week, Colon gave up three runs early but went on to complete eight innings. He struck out seven and walked none in the process.
Jacob deGrom, RHP The 26-year-old was simply superb in a pair of starts, totaling 19 strikeouts, 2 walks, and a 0.64 ERA in 14 innings of work. We’ll break with tradition a bit here and go with a fireball after a sideways arrow since he dominated over the course of two games and not just one.
Josh Edgin, LHP Edgin had a wild pitch that led directly to an inherited runner scoring and gave up a run of his own in two-thirds of an inning over two outings this week.
Dana Eveland, LHP With two runs and four hits allowed in two-thirds of an inning, Eveland’s week was not a great one.
Jeurys Familia, RHP Like Black, Familia wasn’t quite dominant, but he got the job done in three appearances.
Dillon Gee, RHP Gee’s long-awaited return from the disabled list went very well, as he gave up only a run in seven innings of work.
Daisuke Matsuzaka, RHP Love him or hate him, Matsuzaka had a very nice week. With 13 strikeouts, 6 walks, and a 2.77 ERA in two starts, he was more than effective. That walk rate remains scary, of course.
Jenrry Mejia, RHP Mejia continues to be very good out of the Mets’ bullpen. Since moving there, he has a 2.33 ERA and 2.95 FIP with 9.00 strikeouts and 3.67 walks per nine.
Jon Niese, LHP On the disabled list with shoulder soreness, Niese is expected to return to the rotation shortly after the break.
Carlos Torres, RHP With four more scoreless innings, Torres stayed hot.
Zack Wheeler, RHP With another very good start, Wheeler continues to look more and more like the pitcher the Mets hoped he could be when they acquired him.
