Mets Player Performance Meter: Pitchers, Week 23

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

The pitching meter below is far from the prettiest one of the year, but several of the team's worst performers didn't pitch all that much on the week. Still, fewer red and more green arrows would be preferable. The bright side here is that most of the team's starting pitchers pitched well.

Player Last Week This Week Comment
Dario Alvarez, LHP Alvarez recorded just one out for the entire week but had a 54.00 ERA.
Tyler Clippard, RHP Clippard only threw one inning and gave up a solo home run in it.
Bartolo Colon, RHP After a string of very good starts, Colon wasn’t great in his start, but he gave up three runs in 5.2 innings—not the end of the world.
Jacob deGrom, RHP deGrom came off a good week but had one of his poorer starts of the season. The Mets are looking to get him a little extra rest to counteract what they believe to be routine fatigue.
Jeurys Familia, RHP If you hadn’t noticed already, Jeurys Familia is good at baseball.
Sean Gilmartin, LHP -- He’s had a solid season, but Gilmartin had a bit of a bad week with a 4.91 ERA in 3.2 innings.
Erik Goeddel, RHP He’s been very good for the Mets this year, but he wound up with an 11.57 ERA in 2.1 innings this week.
Matt Harvey, RHP He’s taking plenty of heat for his innings limit affecting the length of his start last night, but when he pitched, he did so extremely well.
Steven Matz, LHP Matz had another very good start and seems like a great candidate for playoff starts, so long as the Mets officially get there.
Jon Niese, LHP -- With the Mets' six-man rotation and spot starts, Niese did not pitch in any of the six games this week, but he's set to start tonight against the Braves.
Eric O’Flaherty, LHP -- It’s getting hard to see where O’Flaherty fits on the Mets’ roster as they attempt to wrap up the division and put together a playoff roster.
Bobby Parnell, RHP Despite walking twice as many hitters as he struck out, Parnell managed a couple of scoreless innings.
Addison Reed, RHP Reed pitched very, very well again. In ten innings with the Mets, he has a 0.00 ERA, 1.15 FIP, 11.7 K/9, and 1.8 BB/9. Maybe he’s not the non-tender candidate that many assumed he would be.
Hansel Robles, RHP Robles was on the mound as the game got away from the Mets last night. Not all of that inning was his fault—thanks to a couple of big Mets errors—so he wound up with a 2.25 ERA and 5.15 FIP for the week.
Noah Syndergaard, RHP In his lone start of the week, Syndergaard’s struck out a bunch of Yankees hitters and didn’t walk any, but two home runs got the best of him and gave him a 7.50 ERA in the game.
Tim Stauffer, RHP The veteran had another bad week out of the bullpen.
Carlos Torres, RHP Torres returned from a calf strain but got tattooed by the Yankees in two-thirds of an inning.
Logan Verrett, RHP -- Filling in for Harvey early in the week, Verrett was very good once again. He’ll start again on Tuesday in deGrom’s place.
