Mets Player Performance Meter: Pitchers, Week 8

New, 12 comments

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

Anthony Gruppuso-USA TODAY Sports

Mets pitchers were noticeably human over the past week, totaling a 3.60 ERA that was just middle of the pack in Major League Baseball over that span. They managed a 2.86, however, thanks to excellent strikeout and walk rates, so perhaps things weren't quite as bad as they looked. Whatever, the case, here's how each pitcher did.

Player Last Week This Week Comment
Jerry Blevins, LHP Blevins might get back to throwing in a couple of weeks and has been on the DL for a while since a line drive broke his forearm.
Buddy Carlyle, RHP Carlyle, too, has been on the disabled list for a little while now. For him, it’s been an ailing back.
Bartolo Colon, RHP Coming off two straight starts in which he struggled, Colon started this week by allowing three runs in six innings against the Phillies and finished it by giving up three over seven to the Marlins. A cromulent week on the mound.
Jacob deGrom, RHP deGrom was deGrominant, as they say, in his lone start of the week, with nine strikeouts, no walks, and two runs allowed in seven-and-one-third. He’s been looking fantastic lately.
Jeurys Familia, RHP Familia, too, was his more dominant self this week, as he gave up no runs and struck out six in 4.2 innings.
Dillon Gee, RHP Gee will make his return from the disabled list on Wednesday night in San Diego. The Mets are going to try out a six-man rotation when he does. The over/under on how long it lasts: July 1?
Sean Gilmartin, LHP He only pitched once, but that outing went well.
Erik Goeddel, RHP With two-and-two-thirds scoreless, four strikeouts, and no walks, Goeddel bounced back very nicely from his worst week of the season.
Matt Harvey, RHP The good news: Harvey struck out eleven in eight innings of work. The bad news: He allowed four runs over that span, too.
Jack Leathersich, LHP Another lefty who made just one appearance this week and did well in it. Well, all right.
Jon Niese, LHP Niese has been terrible lately, and his start this week was no exception: four innings, five runs (four earned), and a couple of home runs. If the Mets were to trim their rotation to five or promote Steven Matz from the minors, Niese would at least be a candidate for getting bumped.
Hansel Robles, RHP With a 21.60 ERA for the week, Hansel is not so hot right now.
Noah Syndergaard, RHP Syndergaard was fantastic on the mound, tossing seven-and-one-third shutout innings with six strikeouts and zero walks. Oh, and he hit a monstrous home run of his own and went 3-for-3 at the plate.
Alex Torres, LHP Torres gave up two home runs in 3.2 innings and had a 4.91 ERA for the week. At least he didn’t walk too many guys, I guess?
Carlos Torres, RHP With a quiet, but good, week, Torres is down to a 3.00 ERA and 3.38 FIP on the season. He still seems underrated.
