Mets Player Performance Meter: Pitchers, September 26-October 2

New, comments

A quick review of how the Mets’ pitchers fared over the last baseball week.

MLB: New York Mets at Miami Marlins Steve Mitchell-USA TODAY Sports

As the Mets wound down the regular season and clinched, their pitching staff was mostly very good. Aside from a rough start from Bartolo Colon in the Marlins’ first baseball game since the tragic death of Jose Fernandez, things went pretty well for Mets pitchers. The team had a 3.12 ERA for the week, the fourth-best mark in baseball. The bullpen was especially dominant, with a 1.59 ERA that was the second-best in the game over the past seven days.

Player 9/19-25 9/26-10/2 Comment
Jerry Blevins, LHP Blevins only notched two outs for the week but that wasn’t a bad thing.
Bartolo Colon, RHP Colon’s final week featured a terrible start in Miami and a perfectly-decent start in Philadelphia.
Josh Edgin, LHP Edgin’s last two appearances went well. It’ll be interesting to see if he’s on the Wild Card roster or not.
Jeurys Familia, RHP Familia had been a bit up-and-down in the previous couple of weeks but came out and dominated in four appearances this week.
Sean Gilmartin, LHP -- Gilmartin did not pitch.
Erik Goeddel, RHP Goeddel gave up three runs in just 1.2 innings.
Robert Gsellman, RHP While he might not be as dominant as some of the Mets’ aces when they are at their best, Gsellman continued to pitch really well. Over his last four starts, one of which was against the Nationals and another against the heavy-second-half-hitting Braves, he had a 1.13 ERA.
Jim Henderson, RHP Henderson had a 4.50 ERA, though he only threw two innings.
Seth Lugo, RHP Lugo’s final start of the regular season wasn’t spectacular, but it was still good: 5.1 innings, two runs.
Rafael Montero, RHP Montero managed to throw one scoreless inning out of the bullpen.
Addison Reed, RHP Reed had a very rare bad outing in the previous week, but you wouldn’t know it this week. He’s been so great and important to the Mets’ success.
Hansel Robles, RHP I really hate to call a player streaky, but Robles is really all-or-nothing on a month-to-month basis. He had a fine week here, with 1.1 scoreless innings. And here are his ERA splits by month: 1.69, 5.11, 2.93, 0.00, 9.00, 0.71.
Fernando Salas, RHP Salas has been really good since joining the Mets, though his propensity to give up home runs is a bit of a cause for concern. He had a 2.25 ERA in four innings over this span.
Josh Smoker, LHP Smoker only threw one inning, but it was a scoreless one.
Noah Syndergaard, RHP Syndergaard bounced back from his worst start of the yera and a bout with strep throat to dominate in his lone start. He’ll start the Wild Card game at Citi Field on Wednesday night.
Logan Verrett, RHP -- Verrett did not pitch in the final week of the season.
Gabriel Ynoa, RHP Between his start on Sunday and a relief appearance, Ynoa pieced together 6.1 innings with a 1.42 ERA, his best week in the big leagues to date.
