Mets Player Performance Meter: Pitchers, Week 3—Harvey is Harvey, Hansel is so hot right now

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

Brad Penner-USA TODAY Sports

For the most part, Mets pitchers did well this week. There were some bumps along the way, but Matt Harvey looked like himself against the Yankees, and everyone else except Jacob deGrom was at least decent. And even in deGrom's case, these things happen. Rafael Montero is absent here because he spent last week in the minors prepping for the start he will make in Miami tomorrow, giving the Mets a six-man rotation for the week. That'll help, as the team has no off days, and everyone else gets an extra day of rest. It's designed for Matt Harvey, of course, but spreading the workload out a bit seems like a reasonable thing for all of the team's starting pitchers.

Player Last Week This Week Comment
Jerry Blevins, LHP The likeable lefty is going to be on the disabled list for a while with a broken forearm.
Buddy Carlyle, RHP It was a perfectly decent week for Carlyle, as he made a couple appearances and didn’t so much as allow a baserunner.
Bartolo Colon, RHP Colon gave up three runs in six innings, but he struck out five and did not walk anyone. He’s been great this year, even if this start wasn’t quite dominant.
Jacob deGrom, RHP deGrom’s start at Yankee Stadium was one of his worst major league starts to date. It happens.
Jeurys Familia, RHP Jeurys Familia might be pretty good.
Dillon Gee, RHP Gee made his best start of the season in his last outing. The overall numbers are still not good, but perhaps he can have another good outing tonight in Miami.
Sean Gilmartin, LHP It was a croumlent week for Gilmartin, who appeared in three games, two of which were Mets wins, and didn’t allow any runs.
Erik Goeddel, RHP -- With four strikeouts and a walk in three innings—and no runs allowed—Goeddel looked the part of a major league relief pitcher. Perhaps Terry Collins will use him a bit more now.
Matt Harvey, RHP Harvey the best.
Jon Niese, LHP With decent defense last night, the line probably looks better, but Niese had a 3.86 ERA in two starts for the week.
Hansel Robles, RHP -- Pretty good major league debut, there. You might say he is so hot right now.
Alex Torres, LHP It’s almost like #MetsTwitter’s desire to get rid of Torres after his first couple of appearances was a bad idea.
Carlos Torres, RHP He only pitched 1.1 innings—yes, really—and was effective in them.
