Mets Player Performance Meter: Pitchers, Week 16

A review of the Mets' pitchers over the past seven days.

Anthony Gruppuso-USA TODAY Sports

Choosing which meter to run first this morning was like asking whether you wanted the good news or the really good news. But the pitchers have been the strength of this team all season, and they'll go first today. There were some blips here—a couple of big ones, actually. But there were some downright fantastic performances, too, which highlighted the week.

Player Last Week This Week Comment
Jerry Blevins, LHP There’s no telling how long it’ll take for him to rehab his way back to the big leagues, but Blevins has been cleared to throw.
Bartolo Colon, RHP 23.14 ERA sums it up.
Tyler Clippard, RHP -- Clippard’s first week as a Met was a very good one.
Jacob deGrom, RHP deGrom wasn’t dominant, but he still struck out seven, walked one, and allowed just two runs in six innings.
Jeurys Familia, RHP Overall, Familia had a 7.36 ERA, which is not good. But he looked much better in his more recent outings than he had previously, which is encouraging.
Sean Gilmartin, LHP He made just one appearance, but he struck out five in two innings without giving up any runs.
Erik Goeddel, RHP He’s been out a while, but Goeddel made a rehab appearance yesterday.
Matt Harvey, RHP Harvey was excellent against the Nationals on Friday night with 9 strikeouts, no walks, and just one run allowed in 7.2 innings.
Steven Matz, LHP The lefty isn’t throwing just yet.
Jon Niese, LHP Niese gave up just a run in six innings with 6 strikeouts and one walk. Mets pitchers are good.
Bobby Parnell, RHP Parnell had a 15.43 ERA for the week.
Hansel Robles, RHP Robles had a 2.45 ERA for the week and pitched a very impressive inning against the Nationals on Saturday night. He did, however, serve up a grand slam in the Mets’ big loss on Thursday, though the three baserunners were inherited from Parnell.
Noah Syndergaard, RHP In two starts, Syndergaard pitched 16 innings with a 1.13 ERA, 18 strikeouts, and zero walks. That is good.
Alex Torres, LHP Sure, he walked three batters in his only outing of the week, but he managed to go two-and-two-thirds without allowing any hits or runs.
Carlos Torres, RHP Torres only threw one inning, but it was a very good one.
