Mets Player Performance Meter: Pitchers, Week 13

New, 41 comments

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

Jayne Kamin-Oncea-USA TODAY Sports

As usual, the Mets' pitching staff had a good week overall. Even though the team's two best starters weren't their dominant selves, neither one got shelled and everyone else was pretty good. The bullpen continues to be an asset for the Mets, and its 2.81 ERA on the season is the fifth-best mark in all of baseball.

Player Last Week This Week Comment
Jerry Blevins, LHP Like last week, there’s nothing new here.
Buddy Carlyle, RHP Or here.
Bartolo Colon, RHP Colon struck out eight and walked just one in seven scoreless innings against the Cubs. That brought him down to a 4.55 ERA on the season, and his 78 game score in the start was his highest of the season.
Jacob deGrom, RHP deGrom gave up four runs, one of which was unearned, in five-and-one-third innings. So ends his long streak of dominance.
Jeurys Familia, RHP Familia threw a couple of scoreless innings because of course he did.
Sean Gilmartin, LHP With two-and-one-third scoreless innings, Gilmartin now has a 1.71 ERA and 3.24 FIP on the season.
Erik Goeddel, RHP Goeddel has started throwing as he looks to return from an elbow injury.
Matt Harvey, RHP Harvey allowed three runs on seven hits in five innings against the Dodgers and walked five batters. Not his best start.
Steven Matz, LHP With eight strikeouts in six scoreless innings, Matz’s second start went very well. He has a 1.32 ERA through his first two starts in the big leagues.
Jon Niese, LHP Niese gave up just one run on four hits in seven innings, even though he walked four opposing hitters in the process. Still, it was another good start for the veteran.
Bobby Parnell, RHP He probably won’t be referred to as "Captain Fastball" anytime soon, but Parnell’s success with diminished velocity continue with a couple more scoreless frames.
Hansel Robles, RHP Robles threw three scoreless innings of his own. That’s good.
Noah Syndergaard, RHP The hard-throwing righty allowed one run in six innings with six strikeouts and two walks against the Dodgers, helping the Mets win a game in which the Dodgers started Clayton Kershaw.
Alex Torres, LHP Torres had an 11.57 ERA for the week, which is less than ideal.
Carlos Torres, RHP Torres had a 13.50 ERA for the week, which is also less than ideal.
Logan Verrett, RHP Verrett has been awfully impressive in his brief time with the Mets. He threw five-and-two-thirds scoreless innings for the team over the course of the week and has a 0.73 ERA and 2.11 FIP so far as a Met.
