Mets Player Performance Meter: Pitchers, Week 17

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

Robert Mayer-USA TODAY Sports

The Mets' pitching staff remains a strength, and things went well for the starting rotation, which had a 3.00 ERA despite a couple of sub-par starts, this week. The bullpen, however, had a 4.85 ERA, thanks mostly to a terrible ninth inning against the Marlins in what should have been an easy, stress-free win.

Player Last Week This Week Comment
Jerry Blevins, LHP Blevins re-broke his arm and won’t pitch again this season.
Tyler Clippard, RHP It wasn’t a great week for Clippard, who gave up one run in two innings of work.
Bartolo Colon, RHP Overall, Colon had a 3.07 ERA for the week, but it was one of those weeks during which he had an excellent start and a not-so-good one.
Jacob deGrom, RHP deGrom was very good again, even if his ERA went up from 2.09 to 2.13 in his start this week.
Jeurys Familia, RHP Familia threw two-and-one-third scoreless innings with some strikeouts and no walks. That is good.
Sean Gilmartin, LHP Gilmartin put together three scoreless innings, his heaviest single-week workload in a while.
Erik Goeddel, RHP He’s not back yet, but it sounds like Goeddel could rejoin the team relatively soon.
Matt Harvey, RHP Harvey threw seven scoreless innings in what was a blowout until the bullpen nearly blew it in the game’s final inning against the Marlins.
Steven Matz, LHP The young lefty has begun throwing, and the Mets seem to think he could be back in early September.
Jon Niese, LHP Niese continued his mostly-great stretch of pitching with a seven-inning outing. He now has a 2.78 ERA in eleven starts dating back to the beginning of June.
Eric O’Flaherty, LHP -- With a 27.00 ERA in 1.1 innings, O’Flaherty’s Mets debut week did not go swimmingly.
Bobby Parnell, RHP He threw a couple of scoreless innings, but the strikeouts and walks have not looked good.
Hansel Robles, RHP Robles only pitched one-third of an inning and came out of it with a 54.00 ERA for the week.
Noah Syndergaard, RHP In his lone start of the week, Syndergaard reminded us that he is, in fact, human.
Carlos Torres, RHP With a couple of scoreless innings, Torres is down to a 3.50 ERA and 2.99 FIP on the season. It’s almost like he’s a perfectly decent major league relief pitcher.
