Mets Player Performance Meter: Pitchers, Week 22

A review of the Mets' pitchers over the past week.

Mike Ehrmann

The Mets' pitching staff had a pretty good week in total from September 1 through 7, but there were a couple of hiccups along the way. And here's the meter!

Player Last Week This Week Comment
Dario Alvarez, LHP -- In his major league debut, Alvarez faced one batter and gave up a game-tying hit to him.
Vic Black, RHP Black returned last night but did not pitch at all last week, as he was on the DL.
Buddy Carlyle, RHP Carlyle gave up a couple of runs in a couple of innings, a rare down week for the journeyman reliever.
Bartolo Colon, P Colon gave up just two runs in seven iinnings in his only start of the week. That works.
Jacob deGrom, RHP With another good start, deGrom still seems pretty relevant in the Rookie of the Year discussion.
Josh Edgin, LHP Edgin did not pitch last week.
Dana Eveland, LHP Maybe Dana Eveland is pretty good?
Jeurys Familia, RHP Familia’s poor outing was a really poor one, which kind of wrecked his week overall.
Dillon Gee, RHP Gee’s lone start was a good one: 7 innings, 2 runs, 6 strikouts, and 1 walk.
Erik Goeddel, RHP -- In his first two big league outings, Goeddel gave up two runs on three hits with one strikeout and two walks in 1.2 total innings.
Daisuke Matsuzaka, RHP Like Edgin and Black, Matsuzaka did not pitch last week.
Jenrry Mejia, RHP Mejia gave up two runs in just three innings, though he still managed to notch three saves in the process.
Jon Niese, LHP Niese was the rotation’s weak link, as he gave up six runs on ten hits in six innings.
Carlos Torres, RHP With a 3.38 ERA in 5.1 innings, Torres wasn’t dominant but was still good enough for the green arrow.
Zack Wheeler, RHP In two starts, Wheeler managed a 2.53 ERA with 14 strikeouts and 4 walks in 10.2 innings, though it should be noted that he also allowed three unearned runs.
