Mets Player Performance Meter: Pitchers, Week 19

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

Kim Klement-USA TODAY Sports

Judging pitchers for their performance in Baltimore and Denver is a tough thing to do, but it wasn't the typical dominant week for the Mets' arms. There were some highlights among the bad outings, though, and the Mets went 4-1 on the week, so it's probably best to chalk the bad stuff up to the ballparks and move on. Dario Alvarez, who was briefly with the team to provide bullpen depth, didn’t make the meter because he didn’t appear for the Mets before they sent him back down to the minors after yesterday’s victory.

Player Last Week This Week Comment
Tyler Clippard, RHP The peripherals look just fine, but Clippard had a 4.91 ERA for the week.
Bartolo Colon, RHP Bad Bartolo showed up at Coors Field, and it probably didn’t help that he got hit by a pitch on his right wrist early in his start.
Jacob deGrom, RHP With another excellent start, deGrom is back on a roll. He has a 1.29 ERA over his last seven starts and a 1.98 ERA on the season. That’s pretty, pretty, pretty good.
Jeurys Familia, RHP Despite a little bit of a walk issue, Familia was very good—and has been for a while now.
Sean Gilmartin, LHP Gilmartin was a strikeout machine in his two-and-one-third innings, but he had a 3.86 ERA in them.
Erik Goeddel, RHP He made his third rehab appearance with Binghamton yesterday, and all three have gone well. With rosters set to expand next Tuesday, it wouldn’t be surprising if his rehab stint lasts another week.
Matt Harvey, RHP -- You might have heard that the Mets skipped Harvey to cut down on his innings this year. But he’s still eligible for a fireball in the next pitcher meter.
Steven Matz, LHP The young lefty’s rehab has gone well so far, and he could rejoin the team next week.
Jon Niese, LHP Niese got to experience the joy of pitching in Denver and came out of the place with an 11.81 ERA for the week.
Eric O’Flaherty, LHP Fun—or not so fun—with small sample sizes: O’Flaherty pitched just one-third of an inning and allowed a solo home run. So he had a 27.00 ERA and 42.12 FIP for the week.
Bobby Parnell, RHP Having struggled for a while, Parnell was placed on the disabled list before the week began.
Hansel Robles, RHP Robles had a 6.00 ERA and 5.12 FIP for the week. The Mets played in two tough parks to pitch in, but that’s still not good.
Noah Syndergaard, RHP Syndergaard’s start against the Orioles went pretty well through five innings, but he gave up a two-run home run in the sixth and didn’t pitch any further. So he had a 5.40 ERA for the week.
Carlos Torres, RHP Torres only pitched one-and-one-third innings for the week but had a 13.50 ERA.
Logan Verrett, RHP -- Verrett made one appearance out of the bullpen before taking Matt Harvey’s turn in the rotation yesterday in Colorado and pitching a gem. Of all the starters who pitched at Coors Field over the weekend, Verrett was the best, and it wasn’t even close.
