Player Meter: Pitchers, June 11-17

A quick review of how the Mets’ pitchers fared over the past week. Seth Lugo had his first poor start of the season, but the rest of the starting rotation pitched well enough to keep the Mets in the game. However, outside of Robert Gsellman, the bullpen had uneven performances across the board.

Mets activate Jeurys Familia from disabled list, option Jacob Rhame to Vegas

The Mets have one of their very few good relievers back. The Mets have activated Jeurys Familia from the disabled list and optioned Jacob Rhame to Triple-A Las Vegas to make room for him on the roster. Familia had hit the disabled list earlier this month with right shoulder soreness. In 29.0 innings over the course of 28 appearances this year, Famila has been very good. He has a 2.48 ERA and 2.29 FIP with a 27.5 percent strikeout rate and a 7.5 percent walk rate. If his shoulder is okay and he’s pitching like that, he gives the Mets a desperately-needed late-inning arm. But the...
