Mets Player Performance Meter: Pitchers, Week 11

New, 21 comments

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

Dale Zanine-USA TODAY Sports

The Mets had a very bad week overall, though things got started on a good note when they beat the Blue Jays twice at home. They went on to lose five straight, however, and didn't look good in the process. While not all of the Mets' pitching performances were good, the pitchers certainly came out looking better than the hitters, and the team's two best starters were particularly impressive.

Player Last Week This Week Comment
Jerry Blevins, LHP Blevins is still working his way back from his broken left forearm.
Buddy Carlyle, RHP No real updates on Carlyle’s back lately, which gets a little less attention than David Wright’s back, naturally.
Bartolo Colon, RHP Colon got shelled by the Blue Jays. Of the team’s current five starting pitchers, he has been the worst this season.
Jacob deGrom, RHP With another very good start, deGrom is down to a 2.34 ERA this year. He should be in the Cy Young mix, and Max Scherzer probably isn’t going to pitch that well forever, right?
Jeurys Familia, RHP Familia had a strange week in that he wasn’t dominant (5.40 ERA) and tweaked his groin, rendering him unavailable on Saturday and Sunday.
Sean Gilmartin, LHP Gilmartin served up the double that turned a Mets lead into a Mets deficit on Friday night and
Erik Goeddel, RHP Still out with a sore elbow.
Matt Harvey, RHP Harvey was fantastic in two starts, with a 0.66 ERA and 1.71 FIP in 13.2 innings. He now has a 3.18 ERA on the season.
Jack Leathersich, LHP Leathersich continued to strike out and walk a bunch of opposing hitters, as he almost always has in his career, but he wound up with a 4.50 ERA for the week.
Akeel Morris, RHP -- The youngster who hadn’t pitched above High-A in the minors got a taste of the majors in Toronto, but he walked out with a 67.50 ERA. He did get sent to Double-A Binghamton, though, when he was returned to the minors.
Jon Niese, LHP Seven innings, three runs? Yeah, that’s not a bad result from Niese, considering he pitched in the hitter’s paradise that is Toronto.
Bobby Parnell, RHP The former closer threw a couple of scoreless innings.
Hansel Robles, RHP Robles quietly had a 3.00 ERA in three innings.
Noah Syndergaard, RHP This borders on a green arrow because Syndergaard’s start against the Blue Jays was so good, but he ended the week with a 3.60 ERA. That’s not awful, by it’s not quite great.
Alex Torres, LHP Torres struck out two and walked three in two innings of work, and didn't give up any runs.
Carlos Torres, RHP Torres had a 7.71 ERA on the week and has a 4.25 ERA on the season. Here’s hoping he gets back to being the good relief pitcher he was in 2013 and 2014.
Logan Verrett, RHP -- In 2.2 innings in his first stint with the Mets, Verrett had a 3.38 ERA with four strikeouts.
