Mets Minor League Starting Pitching Leaders

Here’s a look at the Mets minor league starting pitching leaders which features strong showings from Steven Matz, Michael Fulmer, Robert Whalen, and Casey Meisner who all pitched this weekend.

I left out Noah Syndergaard‘s strong 3-0 start with 1.82 ERA, 0.944 WHIP, and 4.25 SO/W ratio because he is in the bigs now and hopefully has seen the last of the Minors.

A breakdown for the relief pitchers will be done next week after they have a chance to accumulate more innings.

Lets compare how the Mets teams have compared to the league averages:

  • Las Vegas – 3.99 ERA, 1.299 WHIP, 2.49 SO/W, 8.5 H9, 4.06 R/G compared to PCL averages- 4.42 ERA, 1.414 WHIP, 2.22 SO/W, 9.3 H9 4.71 R/G
