Mets player performance meter: Pitchers, Week 10

New, 10 comments

Let's review how well—or poorly—Mets pitchers pitched over the last seven days.

Steve Mitchell-USA TODAY Sports

Over the past week, the Mets' pitching was better than the team's hitting, at least. The starting rotation is rounding into form after a bumpy first couple of months, but the bullpen is still battling some inconsistency issues.

This meter covers the Mets' games from Monday, June 6, through Sunday, June 12.

Player Last Week This Week Comment
Antonio Bastardo Bastardo's struggles continued, and he now has a career-high FIP. He walked too many and couldn't get strikeouts, which is a rather poor recipe for success.
Jerry Blevins Blevins pitched an inning plus of shutout ball against lefties.
Bartolo Colon Big Sexy had a big week giving up one earned in seven innings without surrendering a walk. His control hasn't been as pinpoint as it had been, so it's good to see it coming around.
Jacob deGrom deGrom struck out almost everything in his start this week, but allowed three runs in six innings. I tend to prefer process over results in these small samples, so we'll call it a wash.
Jeurys Familia For anyone who misses the old Jeurys, he said hello this week. Though the walks are concerning, he struck out five in three innings and was three-for-three in save chances.
Erik Goeddel -- Goeddel was called up to take Logan Verrett's spot in the bullpen, and pitched a clean inning in his return.
Matt Harvey Matt Harvey is one good start away from a fireball, so you know he's turned it around wonderfully. He struck out eight and walked just two in six innings, allowing one run on two hits.
Jim Henderson Henderson's bad week has his WHIP up all the way to 1.35 on the year in 23 innings. His grasp on a late-inning role has begun slipping away, and rightfully so.
Steven Matz Matz gave up six earned runs in 11 innings despite striking out 13 and not allowing a home run. His 1.29 FIP for the week and 2.58 FIP for the year suggest it's more a blip.
Addison Reed The best season of Addy's career continues, even though he got most of his outs via ground balls this week. He allowed one run in four innings and has a 1.82 ERA on the season.
Hansel Robles After allowing a couple of home runs at the end of May, Robles has allowed just a run in June so far. However, he's been walking a number of batters and had a bit of a blowup against the Marlins.
Noah Syndergaard Noah allowed three runs (two earned) in six innings against the Pirates while striking out just five and walking two, and unfortunately loses his Dickey Fireball.
Logan Verrett Verrett got lit up by the Brewers to the tune of five earned in four innings before being demoted to make room for Erik Goeddel.
