You might have noticed this year that the Mets’ pitching has not been good. If things were going even moderately well in that department, we’d probably at least be talking about how many games over .500 the Mets are rather than how many games under. But here we are, and here’s how the pitchers did over the past week.
Jerry Blevins did his thing and had another good week with 2.1 scoreless innings.
Jacob deGrom had one of the worst starts of his major league career.
In five innings, Josh Edgin had a 1.80 ERA, and he’s definitely been the biggest surprise in terms of major league success on this staff this year.
There haven’t been any updates on Jeurys Familia since we heard that he was on his way to get a throwing program schedule.
Robert Gsellman’s season seems to have really turned a corner, as he put up another pair of good starts. He should at least be in consideration to remain in the rotation when Steven Matz and Seth Lugo return. And those two haven’t been on the meter yet this year, but they’ll both makes starts in Atlanta this weekend.
Coming off one of his best starts of the year, Matt Harvey had a very bad one.
Tyler Pill made his first two major league starts and came out of them with a 3.48 ERA. There were some unearned runs, too, but he did pretty respectably here.
The Mets’ bullpen is probably not going to get much out of Neil Ramirez, who had another down week—this time at least at a 4.76 ERA that’s more palatable than some of the numbers he’s put up.
Addison Reed threw four innings and didn’t allow any earned runs.
Fernando Salas had some weird strikeout and walk numbers but had a 2.45 ERA in 3.2 innings for the week. That’s not bad.
Paul Sewald had been cruising this year and then got himself a 19.29 ERA for the week, which leaves him with a 4.15 ERA on the season.
Like several other Mets, there hasn’t been much in the way of injury updates on Noah Syndergaard.
And last but not least, Zack Wheeler made another good start. He’s been fantastic this year.
