3 under the radar Mets players helping the team win games
3) NY Mets pitcher Tylor Megill has been the Mets most consistent starting pitcher this season
Mets starting pitchers have really struggled to begin this season. Justin Verlander is hurt. Jose Quintana is hurt. Carlos Carrasco got off to a dreadful start before going on the IL. Even Elieser Hernandez is out.
Because of all of these injuries, the Mets have had to dig deep into their depth. Max Scherzer has been iffy to start the year, and is currently suspended. David Peterson was the Game 2 starter and he has a 7.36 ERA. Kodai Senga has had some great moments, but hasn't quite hit his stride yet. Joey Lucchesi looked great in San Francisco, but he's made one start.
With all of that being said, Tylor Megill has been the Mets most consistent starting pitcher this season. That's mostly due to this rotation being so shaky, but Megill has also been solid in his own right.
Megill's numbers aren't anything extraordinary. He has a 3.96 ERA in five starts, striking out 19 batters in 25 innings of work. Megill hasn't been dominant, but he also hasn't been awful in any of his starts.
Megill has gone at least five innings in four of his five starts. He's allowed three runs or fewer in four of his five starts. Limiting the damage and giving your team the chance to win is a good thing. Would I like more length from Megill? Certainly. But compared to what the rest of the staff has been giving, it's hard to be mad at his output.
