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

Despite the fact that they’re still missing four-fifths of what was expected to be their late-2016 starting rotation, the Mets are still getting excellent results from their pitching staff. Between the fill-in starters who’ve performed better than anyone could have hoped and a bullpen that has remained very good throughout the season with only a few hiccups along the way, the Mets have done well at preventing runs. As a team, the Mets had a 2.80 ERA over the past week, the third-lowest mark in all of baseball.

Player 8/29-9/4 9/5-11 Comment
Jerry Blevins, LHP Blevins bounced back from a bad week with a 0.00 ERA and -1.66 FIP thanks to his four strikeouts and no walks in 1.2 innings. Hello, Jerry.
Bartolo Colon, RHP Colon only struck out four batters in twelve innings spanning two starts, but he finished the week with a 2.25 ERA. He has a 3.27 ERA through 170.2 innings this year, which wasn’t something anyone really saw coming.
Jacob deGrom, RHP deGrom has been sidelined with inflammation in his right elbow, but he threw off a mound this weekend.
Josh Edgin, LHP -- Edgin threw a total of one inning over two appearances and didn’t allow any runs. He also bailed out Logan Verrett, as you’ll see below.
Jeurys Familia, RHP Familia pitched three innings, didn’t allow any runs, struck out four, walked one, and earned three more saves. He’s been really, really good.
Sean Gilmartin, LHP Gilmartin threw a scoreless inning.
Erik Goeddel, RHP -- Goeddel struggled as he was charged with the Braves’ game-winning run on Saturday night after getting the Mets into a jam in the 10th inning.
Robert Gsellman, RHP It wasnt a great outing for Gsellman, who allowed one run through four innings but gave up three in the fifth. That was his final inning and left him with a 7.20 ERA for the week. He struck out six along the way, at least.
Jim Henderson, RHP Henderson only appeared once and gave up a couple of hits without recording an out, though he was bailed out as neither of those baserunners wound up scoring—thanks to Josh Smoker’s strikeout, GIDP combination in relief of him.
Seth Lugo, RHP Lugo made another very good start, this time allowing just two runs in seven innings. The second run scored when the game was well out of reach, too, and didn’t have a significant effect on the Mets’ chances of winning.
Steven Matz, LHP Like deGrom, Matz threw off a mound over the weekend. Unlike deGrom, he is trying to come back from a shoulder impingement.
Rafael Montero, RHP Montero continued to have significant problems with walks, as he issued four in 4.1 innings. He gave up three runs, too, for a 6.23 ERA.
Addison Reed, RHP With four more scoreless innings, Reed continued a season that has already been one of the best for a reliever in Mets history.
Hansel Robles, RHP Robles threw four innings and didn’t allow any runs despite walking two—one intentionally—and allowing three hits.
Fernando Salas, RHP Salas gave the Mets 3.1 scoreless innings. He’s been good in five outings since the Mets traded for him.
Josh Smoker, LHP Smoker had himself a nice week with three strikeouts and no runs allowed in 2.1 innings.
Noah Syndergaard, RHP Syndergaard walked four, gave up six hits, and only lasted five innings, but he struck out seven and didn’t allow any runs.
Logan Verrett, RHP Verrett recorded just one out on the week but allowed a run in the process and could have allowed more if Josh Edgin hadn’t bailed him out of a bases-loaded jam by inducing a game-ending double play.
Gabriel Ynoa, RHP -- Ynoa allowed three runs on two hits with a walk and a strikeout in his one-third of an inning.
