By Corné Hogeveen and Gem Tablak
This is the recap for the Pitchers in week five! Again the grades are Very bad, Bad, Solid, Good, Very good and Red Hot!!
Corné: Solid. Harvey was not great in his first outing of the week going 5.2 innings against the Braves allowing 3 runs. On Sunday Harvey started against the Padres and allowing just 2 runs in 6 innings while striking out 10. He looked very good on Sunday but he had a up and down week.
Gem:Good. Harvey still doesn’t look like the Dark Knight we are used to seeing every 5 games but he got the job done & it does seem he may about to be getting in a good groove… Hopefully.
Corné: Good. 6 innings of 2 run ball. Unfortuanally he got no run support.
Gem:Good. No run support, no win.
Corné: Bad. Jake got hit in his start against the Padres allowing 3 runs in 5 innings.
Gem:Bad. Normally I would probably give him a solid rank but he gave up 10 hits in that outing while only striking out 2.
Corné: RED HOT. He pitched 8 scoreless innings on Monday and had another career day on Saturday. He pitched 6.2 innings on Saturday but had his first MLB homerun in the win!!! What a week for Big Bart.
Gem: Red Hot. I have no words for Bartolo.
Corné:RED HOT. 7.2 scoreless innings, no walks and only 2 hits allowed.
Gem:Red Hot. Please, just stay healthy Stevie boy.
Corné: Very good. Bastardo pitched 3 total innings allowing just 1 runs but his big outing was Sunday when he came in with the Mets leading 4-3 in the 8th with the bases loaded 0 out and got out of it without allowing a run! Big time pitching by Bastardo.
Gem:Red Hot. Not so worried about the run. It happens. His outing on Sunday however was terrific.
Corné: Solid. Good his lefty out 2 of the 3 times.
Gem: Good. He got the job done for the most part.
Corné: RED HOT. 2 saves and 3 perfect innings!
Gem:Red Hot: Great week put in by the Mets closer
Corné: RED HOT. Henderson with another 2.1 scoreless innings.
Gem: Red Hot. Turning out to be a great, low key pick up.
Corné: Solid. Did not allow a run but that was mostly because of Bastardo & his great work. 2.2 scoreless innings but a 1.88 WHIP
Gem: Good. Definitely got into trouble a couple of times this week however he didn’t give up any runs. That WHIP is something to be concerned about however.
Corné: Very Good. pitched only 1.1 but did not allow a run.
Gem:Good. Not a lot of opportunities this week but that’s not bad. Keep that arm fresh, kid!
Corné: Solid. Verrett allowed 2 homeruns but nothing more. In the 4 innings he had a 4.50 ERA.
Gem: Solid. Not exactly sure how I feel about his week, to be truthfully honest.
