Mets Player Performance Meter: Pitchers, Week 7

A review of the Mets' pitchers over the past seven days.

Charles LeClaire-USA TODAY Sports

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.

Player Last Week This Week Comment
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.
