Mets Player Performance Meter: Pitchers, Week 12

New, 33 comments

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

Andy Marlin-USA TODAY Sports

Unlike Mets hitters, Mets pitchers had a very good week. The team's quarter of young, exciting pitchers strung together four straight games of outstanding starting pitching. Mets starters now have a 3.70 ERA on the season, the sixth-best mark in baseball. The bullpen is nothing to sneeze at, either, as its 2.84 ERA is also the sixth-best in baseball.

Player Last Week This Week Comment
Jerry Blevins, LHP There’s nothing really new to report here.
Buddy Carlyle, RHP Or here.
Bartolo Colon, RHP Colon gave up four runs in six innings and has been the weakest link the Mets’ rotation.
Jacob deGrom, RHP In a week that featured plenty of great pitching performances, deGrom had the best outing. He’s been superb.
Jeurys Familia, RHP With four scoreless innings on the week, Familia was back to his dominant self.
Sean Gilmartin, LHP In one-third of an inning, he gave up a hit and a walk, though he wasn't charged with any runs.
Erik Goeddel, RHP No real updates here, either.
Matt Harvey, RHP Harvey threw six good innings on Saturday before rain forced the game to be suspended. He’s quietly been very good lately.
Jack Leathersich, LHP -- Leathersich did not make an appearance over the week and was optioned to make room for Matz.
Steven Matz, LHP -- Matz simply had one of the best major league debuts in baseball history as he combined a very good outing on the mound with an incredible performance at the plate.
Jon Niese, LHP Niese gave up just two runs in six innings. That’s pretty good.
Bobby Parnell, RHP Parnell struck out three and walked none in two-and-one-third scoreless.
Hansel Robles, RHP Robles gave up one run over 2.2 innings with a couple of strikeouts and one walk.
Noah Syndergaard, RHP With an eight-inning, one-run start, Syndergaard was excellent. In nine big league starts, he has a 3.59 ERA and 2.75 FIP.
Alex Torres, LHP Torres walked the only batter he faced all week.
Carlos Torres, RHP Having struggled quite a bit earlier in the month, Torres made a couple of appearances and totaled one scoreless inning.
Logan Verrett, RHP Four scoreless innings? That’ll work.
