Mets Player Performance Meter: Pitchers, Week 9

New, 15 comments

A review of the Mets' pitching staff over the past week.

Jake Roth-USA TODAY Sports

Met s pitchers have been very good this season, but over the past seven days, the team's pitching stats were only middle of the pack on the whole. That was mostly because of a couple bad starts, though, as there was plenty to like here. The bullpen continued its great performance, and Mets relievers have a 2.69 ERA on the season, the fourth-best mark in baseball. Mets starters are no slouches, either, as their 3.69 ERA on the season ranks eighth in baseball.

Player Last Week This Week Comment
Jerry Blevins, LHP Blevins is still on the shelf, recovering from his broken forearm.
Buddy Carlyle, RHP Carlyle is still out with a bad back.
Bartolo Colon, RHP The Mets did not end up winning Colon’s start, but it would be tough to pin that on Colon himself, who threw seven innings and gave up just two runs, both of which scored on a home run that was really his only mistake of the night.
Jacob deGrom, RHP deGrom was outstanding in two starts, totaling a 1.20 ERA and 1.31 FIP in 15 innings of work. His early season struggles are feeling like a distant memory.
Jeurys Familia, RHP The Mets’ closer threw two-and-two-thirds scoreless innings and gave up just one hit and one walk.
Dillon Gee, RHP Gee’s return from the disabled list did not go well. He gave up seven runs, three of which were unearned, in four innings, and the Mets have moved him to the bullpen and ditched the idea of using a six-man rotation.
Sean Gilmartin, LHP Gilmartin has flown under the radar a bit all season, but he threw three scoreless innings this week.
Erik Goeddel, RHP Goeddel struck out three and walked one in two scoreless innings of work. He has a 2.05 ERA and 2.57 FIP on the season.
Matt Harvey, RHP The Matt Harvey we’re all used to showed up in Arizona, striking out nine and walking one while allowing just two runs in seven innings of work.
Jack Leathersich, LHP In four outings, the lefty struck out three, which is good, walked two, which is bad, and gave up one run, which is decent.
Jon Niese, LHP Niese struck out a bunch of opposing batters and didn’t walk many, but he wound up giving up three runs in six innings. That’s not fantastic, but it’s quite a bit better than his past few starts had been.
Hansel Robles, RHP Robles’s peripherals don’t jump off the page here, but he made four appearances totaling two-and-one-third innings and didn’t give up any hits or runs.
Noah Syndergaard, RHP Despite striking out ten, Syndergaard lasted just four innings and gave up seven runs to the Padres in his start.
Alex Torres, LHP Torres made two appearances and gave up three hits in one-and-one-third without striking out or walking anyone, both of which are strange things for him not to do.
Carlos Torres, RHP Coming off a string of mostly good appearances, Torres gave up three runs in two innings for a 13.50 ERA for the week.
