The Mets' pitching is the team's strength, generally speaking. Over the week spanning May 18 through 24, however, there were a lot of weaknesses among the group. Jacob deGrom's start was undoubtedly the highlight of that stretch. The rest of the results were mixed.
|Jerry Blevins, LHP
|Blevins is still out after breaking his forearm a few weeks ago, but it sounds like he might be able to get started on rehab work sooner than later.
|Buddy Carlyle, RHP
|Still on the disabled list after landing there with back stifness.
|Bartolo Colon, RHP
|Bartolo’s lone start last week was a disaster. He gave up nine runs, eight of which were earned, in 4.1 innings.
|Jacob deGrom, RHP
|deGrom made the best start of any Mets pitcher this year in his outing, striking out 11, walking none, and giving up just one hit in eight scoreless innings of work. Outstanding.
|Jeurys Familia, RHP
|Familia only pitched two innings but gave up one run on three hits in them.
|Dillon Gee, RHP
|Still on the disabled list, Gee really seems ready to return from his mild groin strain, but the Mets are working on setting up a six-man rotation next week and have him pitching one more rehab start in the minors.
|Sean Gilmartin, LHP
|One of the busiest relief pitchers on the team for the week, Gilmartin fared okay.
|Erik Goeddel, RHP
|Things have gone well for Goeddel overall this season, but with a 7.50 ERA in six innings, this was easily his worst week in the bigs so far.
|Matt Harvey, RHP
|Harvey’s most recent start was the worst of his big league career. The other one he made was much better, at least.
|Jack Leathersich, LHP
|Leathersich threw 3.2 scoreless with high strikeout and walk rates. Sounds about right.
|Jon Niese, LHP
|It was a brutal week for Niese, who gave up 12 runs on 18 hits over two starts in just 9.2 innings in total. He now has a 4.08 ERA and 4.46 FIP on the season.
|Hansel Robles, RHP
|Robles tossed a couple of innings and gave up one unearned run with a couple of strikeouts and no walks. Alright.
|Noah Syndergaard, RHP
|Syndergaard pitched better than his line indicates, but he gave up four runs, three of which were earned, in six innings. A couple of those other runs could have been unearned, too.
|Alex Torres, LHP
|With a bunch of strikeouts and zero walks, Torres harnessed his stuff in his pair of outings. Of course, he did still throw two wild pitches.
|Carlos Torres, RHP
|Torres threw four innings and did well in them, which is good news, as he had struggled a bit before this week.
