Mets Player Performance Meter: Pitchers, Weeks 24-25

New, 74 comments

The Mets' pitching staff looked pretty, pretty good over the last two weeks of the year.

Kevin C. Cox

The Mets' pitching staff finished the year on a high note. Most of the team's pitchers were at least good, and many of them were better than that. That the bullpen, Jacob deGrom, and Zack Wheeler performed as well as they did over the past few months is encouraging for the team as it looks to actually contend in 2015.

Player Last Week This Week Comment
Dario Alvarez, LHP -- Alvarez did not play over the last two weeks of the season.
Vic Black, RHP Black didn’t pitch because of a shoulder injury.
Buddy Carlyle, RHP Carlyle concluded an unexpected season with five scoreless innings.
Bartolo Colon, P Colon made three starts over this stretch and threw 19.2 innings with a 3.66 ERA and 3.03 FIP. That’s a perfectly cromulent ending to his season.
Jacob deGrom, RHP As was often the case this year, deGrom was dominant in his final two starts, tallying a 2.77 ERA and even more impressive 0.52 FIP in his last two starts. He should be the National League Rookie of the Year.
Josh Edgin, LHP In four appearances totaling one inning, Edgin managed to post a -0.87 FIP. That’s good.
Dana Eveland, LHP Eveland missed the last two weeks because of elbow inflammation.
Jeurys Familia, RHP While his 5.06 ERA over the last two weeks is pretty ugly, his strikeout and walk numbers were pretty pretty.
Dillon Gee, RHP With a 6.17 ERA in his last two starts, Gee got tattooed a bit ot close out the year.
Gonzalez Germen, RHP Germen’s last inning of the year was a scoreless one.
Erik Goeddel, RHP With three scoreless frames, Goeddel’s year ended nicely.
Daisuke Matsuzaka, RHP In 3.1 innings of relief, Matsuzaka didn’t allow any runs.
Jenrry Mejia, RHP Mejia was excellent down the stretch and will soon have surgery to take care of a sports hernia.
Rafael Montero, RHP In one start and one relief appearance, Montero was very effective and had a 1.42 ERA in 6.1 innings.
Jon Niese, LHP Though he had to leave his last start with an elevated heart rate, Niese finishe dthe season strong with a 1.42 ERA and 1.95 FIP over two starts.
Carlos Torres, RHP There was a hiccup in the game in which he replaced Niese unexpectedly, but Torres was otherwise very good as he wrapped up his season.
Zack Wheeler, RHP Coming off a poor week, Wheeler made a couple of starts with plenty of strikeouts and a 2.45 ERA to complete his first full season in the majors.
