Mets Player Performance Meter: Pitchers, Week 18

New, 9 comments

Zack Wheeler, Dillon Gee, and Bartolo Colon were very good over the past week. Some of the Mets' other pitchers were not.

The Mets' pitching staff was all over the place over the past week. The rotation was stronger than the bullpen overall, but there were some less-than-stellar performances from both factions. In total, the Mets ranked in the bottom third of baseball in ERA and FIP over that span. Here's how each player performed.

Player Last Week This Week Comment
Vic Black, RHP The peripherals were good, but the results were not, as Black gave up two runs over 3.1 innings.
Buddy Carlyle, RHP Carlyle pitched another 3.1 scoreless innings, which gives him a 0.66 ERA and 2.03 FIP in 13.2 innings of work in the big leagues this year.
Bartolo Colon, P Colon gave up just one run in eight innings of work, and he struck out six without walking anybody. It still would not be a shock to see him dealt to a contender before the waiver trade deadline passes.
Jacob deGrom, RHP deGrom gave up three runs in six innings with four strikeouts and a walk, but the biggest news about him was that he will miss his start on Tuesday with shoulder soreness.
Josh Edgin, LHP Edgin tossed 4.1 scoreless frames to continue his surprisingly great season.
Dana Eveland, LHP Eveland gave up a couple of runs in 2.1 innings, giving him a 7.71 ERA on the week.
Jeurys Familia, RHP Walks were a problem for Familia, and he’s still not striking out the world, but he managed to have another effective week out of the bullpen.
Dillon Gee, RHP With a 2.13 ERA over 12.2 innings in a pair of starts this week, Gee looked much more like his pre-disabled list self than the guy who struggled after coming off the disabled list.
Daisuke Matsuzaka, RHP On the disabled list with elbow inflammation, Matsuzaka is scheduled to make a rehab start for High-A St. Lucie this evening.
Jenrry Mejia, RHP Mejia gave up four runs on nine hits in 3.2 innings of work this week, and he’s dealt with a balky calf and a hernia lately.
Jon Niese, LHP Niese’s lone outing of the week was a stinker.
Carlos Torres, RHP Torres only pitched one inning, but he allowed three runs in it. He had a 2.88 ERA on July 12 but has a 3.61 ERA today.
Zack Wheeler, RHP While his strikeout and walk rates—19.2 and 13.5 percent, respectively—were not great, Wheeler threw 12.2 innings over two starts with a 2.84 ERA.
