Mets Player Performance Meter: Pitchers, Week 21

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

Robert Mayer-USA TODAY Sports

The pitcher meter used to be a place where you could go to find the silver lining in things when the Mets' offense was terrible and things weren't looking as good as they have since the trade deadline. Things haven't been quite as rosy here lately, especially in the bullpen, but there were still some highlights over the past week. And the Mets' best pitchers—at least so long as they are pitching—are better than their recent results.

Player Last Week This Week Comment
Dario Alvarez, LHP -- -- Back with the team as of Friday night, Alvarez has not yet pitched in a game.
Tyler Clippard, RHP Clippard has been very good with the Mets, but he wound up with a 4.91 ERA over this week.
Bartolo Colon, RHP With a couple of great starts, one of which was a complete-game shutout, Colon was undoubtedly the Mets’ best pitcher of the week.
Jacob deGrom, RHP deGrom was just so-so in his lone start of the week.
Jeurys Familia, RHP Familia only threw one inning all week, but he gave up one run in it.
Sean Gilmartin, LHP With a 10.80 ERA for the week, it wasn’t Gilmartin at his best.
Erik Goeddel, RHP Goeddel had a 3.86 ERA in his first week back from the DL, which is neither great nor awful.
Matt Harvey, RHP Harvey gave up four runs in six-and-one-third innings against the Phillies, which isn’t ideal. And as you might have heard, he caused a bit of a stir this weekend.
Steven Matz, LHP In his return from the disabled list, Matz was pretty good: 5.1 innings, 6 K, 2 BB, 2 runs. He probably would have finished the sixth inning but was pulled because of a blister on his left hand.
Jon Niese, LHP Niese made another bad start—he’s had a string of those lately—and gets a chance to right the ship against the Nationals this afternoon.
Eric O’Flaherty, LHP Is a 27.00 ERA bad?
Bobby Parnell, RHP Parnell, who has clearly not been anything like his pre-surgery self, pitched very poorly in his only outing of the week.
Addison Reed, RHP -- In four innings, Reed didn’t allow any runs, struck out three, and walked one.
Hansel Robles, RHP Robles only pitched 1.2 innings, but he didn’t give up any runs in the process.
Noah Syndergaard, RHP -- Syndergaard's turn in the rotation was skipped in an effort to reduce his innings workload for the season.
Carlos Torres, RHP O’Flaherty wasn’t the only pitcher with a 27.00 ERA for the week.
