Mets Player Performance Meter: Pitchers, Week 20

There were a lot of red-arrow-worthy performances, but a couple pitchers shined.

Richard Mackson-USA TODAY Sports

When it came to pitching over the last week, there wasn't a whole lot for the Mets to get excited about. On the upside, Bartolo Colon had a good start just as he was out there on revocable trade waivers. On the downside, many of his teammates struggled. Here's how each of them did over the last seven days.

Player Last Week This Week Comment
Vic Black, RHP In three outings totaling two innings, Black was not as good as he has been for most of this season, allowing two runs and walking three while striking out just one.
Buddy Carlyle, RHP Carlyle allowed two runs in four innings of work—a pair of two-inning outings—but struck out six and walked one in the process.
Bartolo Colon, P Back from the bereavement list, Colon tossed six innings and allowed just two runs yesterday. He struck out five and walked one, and there’s a chance he could be dealt to another team soon.
Jacob deGrom, RHP deGrom’s first start back from the disabled list was going well until it didn’t, as he looked very good against the Dodgers early and wound up giving up five runs in six innings. He did strike out seven and walk two, at least.
Josh Edgin, LHP In two-and-two-thirds innings, Edgin kept his great year going. He struck out four, walked one, and allowed one unearned run.
Dana Eveland, LHP Though he only appeared twice and pitched one inning in total, Eveland allow one run and three hits in the process.
Jeurys Familia, RHP Believe it or not, Familia only made one appearance, a scoreless one-and-two-thirds innings outing with a couple of strikeouts, a walk, and only one hit allowed.
Dillon Gee, RHP Gee gave up four runs on eight hits in five-and-two-thirds innings in his start this week. He has a 5.06 ERA in eight starts since coming back from the disabled list in early July.
Gonzalez Germen, RHP -- Called up briefly to bolster the bullpen was Bartolo Colon was away, Germen gave up a couple of runs in his only inning of work. Very early this season, he looked promising, but he has spent most of the year in Vegas and has a 5.27 ERA and 5.88 FIP in his time with the Mets this year.
Daisuke Matsuzaka, RHP Matsuzaka made another rehab start over the weekend and should return to the Mets sometime soon.
Jenrry Mejia, RHP Mejia gave up two runs in two innings of work and neither struck out nor walked any opposing hitters.
Rafael Montero, RHP Montero’s only appearance came in relief, a role he hadn’t played since he was in rookie ball in 2011, and he gave up a run and notched just one out. He’ll get back to his usual starting role now that he’s back with Las Vegas.
Jon Niese, LHP Sure, three of the five runs Niese allowed were unearned thanks to shoddy Mets defense, but he gave up eight hits, struck out four, and walked three in six-and-two-thirds innings of work. Like Gee, he’s struggled since coming back from the disabled list (4.63 ERA).
Carlos Torres, RHP In a spot start in Bartolo Colon’s place and two relief appearance, Torres was outstanding. He allowed no runs, struck out eight, walked three, and surrendered just five hits in six-and-one-third innings.
Zack Wheeler, RHP In his start, Wheeler allowed four runs—two unearned—on four hits and walked just three while walking three as the A’s rolled out an all-left-handed-hitting lineup against him.
