As the Mets’ season continues to work toward its end, individual performances are pretty much the most interesting thing they have going on right now. And in a year filled with pitching disappointment, both in terms of health and performance, it’s pretty easy to latch on to any positive signs from these pitchers in hopes that they will be able to contribute next year.
Jerry Blevins was one of the few relievers who didn’t fare so well this week, as he had a 4.50 ERA.
Chasen Bradford and Jamie Callahan each put up a 0.00 ERA.
Jacob deGrom’s second start of the week went much better than his first, but he still had a 7.45 ERA in 9.2 innings.
With a 4.91 ERA, Jeurys Familia was not at his best, but that’s better than he had looked previously since he came back from the disabled list.
Chris Flexen did not pitch.
Erik Goeddel was part of the 0.00 ERA club, and Robert Gsellman had pretty good six-inning starts in which he gave up three runs, two of which were earned.
Matt Harvey made his best start in quite some time with two runs allowed over five innings. That’s far from vintage Harvey, but it’s a whole lot better than his previous start.
Seth Lugo threw six scoreless innings with four strikeouts and a walk in his lone start of the week.
Kevin McGowan and Tommy Milone didn’t allow any runs working out of the bullpen.
Rafael Montero had a 4.35 ERA over two starts with eight strikeouts and ten walks in 10.1 innings. That ERA works, but that walk rate looks more like the Montero we saw earlier this year.
AJ Ramos and Jacob Rhame, like many of their bullpen peers, did not allow any runs for the week.
Hansel Robles, however, allowed plenty of runs, as reflected by his 16.88 ERA. Paul Sewald wasn’t far behind him at 18.00 this week.
Josh Smoker threw one scoreless inning with a pair of strikeouts.
And last but not least, Noah Syndergaard’s simulated game, which was set to take place after his rehab start for Brooklyn, has been delayed because of “general soreness.”
