Mets Player Performance Meter: Pitchers, Week 19

New, 7 comments

The Mets' pitching staff was mostly excellent over the past seven days.

The Mets went 3-4 over the last week, but things could have been much worse if not for some excellent pitching. Not everyone was perfect, but the Mets might have turned in another win or two if their lineup had been more capable. Here's how each of their pitchers did over that span.

Player Last Week This Week Comment
Vic Black, RHP On top of the fact that he threw three scoreless innings of his own, Black even got Jon Niese out of a bases-loaded, nobody-out jam.
Buddy Carlyle, RHP With three more scoreless innings, three strikeouts, and zero walks, Carlyle continued a surprisingly excellent season. He’s up to 16.1 innings with the Mets this year and has a 0.55 ERA and 1.85 FIP.
Bartolo Colon, P Colon was great in his lone start, striking out eight, walking one, and allowing just two runs, one of which was unearned.
Jacob deGrom, RHP Though he hit the disabled list with shoulder soreness, all reports from deGrom’s medical examination and throwing sessions have been positive. He could be back soon.
Josh Edgin, LHP Edgin totaled just an inning but struck out two and did not give up any runs.
Dana Eveland, LHP Eveland threw a scoreless frame in his only appearance of the week.
Jeurys Familia, RHP Familia struck out six in 4.1 innings of work but walked three and gave up a couple of runs, to boot.
Dillon Gee, RHP In six innings, Gee gave up four runs on four hits, two of which were home runs.
Daisuke Matsuzaka, RHP Matsuzaka should be done with his rehab assignment sooner than later at this point.
Jenrry Mejia, RHP Mejia only gave up two hits and didn’t walk anyone in three innings of work. Unfortunately, one of those hits was a go-ahead and eventual game-winning home run.
Rafael Montero, RHP -- Montero’s first start back with the Mets went poorly, but his second one was outstanding.
Jon Niese, LHP In two starts, Niese had a 3.46 ERA, which is decent, but his 5.67 FIP suggests things could have been significantly worse.
Carlos Torres, RHP Torres pitched to a 4.91 ERA on the week, though his more recent outings were the better ones.
Zack Wheeler, RHP Despite control problems—four walks and one hit-by-pitch—Wheeler managed to dominate the Cubs in his start with ten strikeouts and just two runs allowed in 6.2 innings.
