Mets Player Performance Meter: Pitchers, Week 14

New, comments

A review of the Mets' pitchers over the past week of baseball.

Noah K. Murray-USA TODAY Sports

The Mets' pitching staff is good. So good, in fact, that two Mets relief pitchers who have seen pretty regular time over the course of the season did not even get into a game as the Mets finished the first "half" strong. Even with the bad news about Steven Matz's partially torn lat, things went incredibly well for Mets pitchers over this stretch. Among the healthy, no one was terrible, and almost everyone was quite good.

Player Last Week This Week Comment
Jerry Blevins, LHP Unfortunately, Blevins still isn’t throwing and won’t be for at least a couple of weeks.
Buddy Carlyle, RHP Carlyle had hip surgery and is likely done for the season. Meter Avenue bids him farewell and wishes him luck but would be happy to have him back if he dons a Mets uniform again.
Bartolo Colon, RHP Six innings, three runs, two earned? Sure, a green arrow. Why not?
Jacob deGrom, RHP The Mets’ lone All-Star was outstanding in his final start before the break.
Jeurys Familia, RHP He’s not on the All-Star team, but he’s objectively better than at least a couple of relief pitchers who are.
Sean Gilmartin, LHP -- Thanks in part to the dominance of Mets starting pitchers, Gilmartin did not make an appearance during the week.
Erik Goeddel, RHP He hasn’t begun a rehab assignment yet, but Goeddel was said to be close to throwing recently.
Matt Harvey, RHP On top of allowing just two runs in seven innings with nine strikeouts, Harvey hit a go-ahead two-run home run that proved to be the difference in the Mets’ victory on Saturday.
Steven Matz, LHP Matz is going to be out for a while with a partially torn lat muscle in his left side.
Jenrry Mejia, RHP -- He only faced one batter over the week, but he retired him. Welcome back, Jenrry.
Jon Niese, LHP Niese had a 1.84 ERA over two starts and has pitched as well recently as he ever has in the big leagues. He’s down to a 3.61 ERA for the season with a 4.17 FIP.
Bobby Parnell, RHP Parnell finally cracked and gave up a run and therefore had a 3.86 ERA for the week.
Hansel Robles, RHP -- Like Gilmartin, Robles did not make an appearance.
Noah Syndergaard, RHP Syndergaard struck out thirteen and allowed just one run in eight innings in his first half finale. Oh yeah.
Alex Torres, LHP Torres threw one inning, and it went well despite one incredibly unsurprising walk.
Carlos Torres, RHP Torres struck out the side in his only outing of the week.
