If ever there were a week that perfectly described the Mets’ pitching performance this year, it might be this one. So let’s get right to it.
Jerry Blevins had a 6.75 ERA in 2.2 innings.
And Chasen Bradford had a 21.60 ERA in 1.2 innings.
Jamie Callahan had a 27.00 ERA, albeit in just two-thirds of an inning.
As you might expect, Jacob deGrom was great and easily the Mets’ best pitcher for the week. He gave up just one run with seven strikeouts and one walk in seven innings.
Jeurys Familia managed two scoreless innings. Huzzah!
Chris Flexen pitched and had a so-so 4.50 ERA in his two innings of work.
Erik Goeddel is apparently injured but trying to make his way back.
Robert Gsellman had a 3.27 ERA in 11.0 innings of work spanning two starts. Hey, not bad!
And back to reality we go. Matt Harvey had a 13.50 ERA in his lone start of the week.
Seth Lugo had a 21.00 ERA in his start, which lasted just three-plus innings.
Kevin McGowan’s 9.00 ERA doesn’t look so bad in this context.
Tommy Milone pitched a total of 1.2 innings and had a 5.40 ERA.
Rafael Montero struck out six and walked one in 4.2 innings, but he gave up three runs. That’s a 5.79 ERA.
Current closer AJ Ramos had a 9.00 ERA in two innings.
Jacob Rhame: 40.50 ERA, 1.1 innings.
But Hansel Robles threw a scoreless week.
Paul Sewald did, too!
Josh Smoker checked in with a 6.00 ERA.
And last but not least, the Mets and Noah Syndergaard are still working on getting him back into a major league game in some capacity before the season ends.
