Mets Player Performance Meter: Pitchers, Week 10

A review of the Mets' pitching staff over the past seven days.

The Mets' pitching staff was the definition of a mixed bag over the past week. There were some truly excellent performances and truly terrible performances among the bunch. There's little doubt that pitching is the team's greatest strength, though, and a couple of the pitchers who fared poorly here figure to fare better in the coming weeks.

Player Last Week This Week Comment
Jerry Blevins, LHP Still on the shelf after having his forearm broken earlier this season, Blevins is now on the 60-day disabled list, a technicality used to open up a spot on the 40-man roster for the re-acquisition of Kirk Nieuwenhuis.
Buddy Carlyle, RHP Still on the shelf, too, after hitting the disabled list with back stiffness.
Bartolo Colon, RHP It wasn’t always pretty, but Colon gave up two runs in six innings of work. That’ll do.
Jacob deGrom, RHP The Mets lost the game deGrom started on Saturday, but it was through no fault of his own. He threw seven excellent innings, and he’s looking like a Cy Young contender right now.
Jeurys Familia, RHP Familia did not strike anyone out, but he threw three-and-a-third scoreless and had a child over the weekend, to boot. Congrats, Jeurys!
Dillon Gee, RHP Gee made one relief appearance and one start. Neither one went well.
Sean Gilmartin, LHP With four scoreless innings, Gilmartin continued to get good results. He has a 2.01 ERA and 3.10 FIP in 22.1 innings this year. Maybe he’s pretty good.
Erik Goeddel, RHP Goeddel threw a scoreless inning but landed on the disabled list with elbow soreness. Uh oh.
Matt Harvey, RHP Harvey was bad in his start.
Jack Leathersich, LHP He only pitched an inning in total, but Leathersich fared well. He has a 1.86 ERA and 2.90 FIP this far in his major league career. Perhaps he, too, is good?
Jon Niese, LHP Niese gave up four runs in seven innings, though two were unearned. He seems to give up unearned runs like nobody else.
Bobby Parnell, RHP -- Back from his Tommy John surgery, Parnell threw one-and-one-third scoreless.
Hansel Robles, RHP Robles had a 13.50 ERA for the week and gave up a couple of runs at a very inopportune time on Saturday.
Noah Syndergaard, RHP The Giants avoided striking out much against Syndergaard, and peppered him with mostly weak hits. He should be fine.
Alex Torres, LHP Torres struck out 11.57 per nine and walked 11.57 per nine this week. Sounds about right.
Carlos Torres, RHP In four-and-one-third innings, Torres had a 4.15 ERA, which is not so great.
