As was the case with the position player this morning, this edition of the pitcher meter covers two weeks, dating back to when the Mets came back from the All-Star break. If you want to know why the Mets are bad, this image should help explain things.
So let’s get on with the list.
Jerry Blevins had been struggling for a while, but he didn’t allow any runs over these two weeks. Hello, Jerry.
Chase Bradford only threw two innings but had a 9.00 ERA.
Jacob deGrom had a 1.88 ERA over the course of 28.2 innings. He’s been fantastic.
Although he got DFA’d, Josh Edgin was good leading up to that move. He had a 1.93 ERA in his 4.2 innings of work and was a bit of an odd choice to DFA given the variety of other options.
Jeurys Familia is still out.
Chris Flexen made his major league debut and got rocked.
Erik Goeddel actually had a pretty good week, which is a pleasant surprise.
Robert Gsellman is still out, too.
Matt Harvey, still out.
Seth Lugo’s 4.44 ERA for the week looks respectable compared to many of his teammates.
Steven Matz is one of those teammates, as he had a 16.00 ERA over the course of three starts. He has been awful this year.
Rafael Montero’s 5.09 ERA probably ranks somewhere in the middle of his weeks in the big leagues this year, but it’s bad.
Tyler Pill made two appearances and had a 6.75 ERA.
Neil Ramirez had a 6.75 ERA, too, but his surprisingly long tenure on the major league roster finally came to an end.
AJ Ramos made his Mets debut and it did not go well.
Addison Reed was very good and netted the Mets three young relief pitching arms in a trade with the Red Sox.
Hansel Robles pitched well in the majors. It’s been a while since that sentence was accurate.
Believe it or not, Fernando Salas had a good stretch.
Paul Sewald did, too.
And count Josh Smoker as part of that group. The power of the letter S, I guess.
But Noah Syndergaard remains on the disabled list.
Zack Wheeler hit the DL, but before that, he had a 7.84 ERA in two starts. Yikes.
