Porcello (1-7) took the loss in the second game of Saturday's doubleheader against the Nationals, giving up five runs (three earned) on eight hits and a walk over three innings as the Mets fell 5-3. He struck out three. The veteran right-hander has had a miserable season in New York, posting a career-worst 5.64 ERA and 1.51 WHIP through 59 innings with a 54:15 K:BB. Given that he is on a one-year contract, it seems unlikely he'll be back with the Mets in 2021.
Porcello will start Game 2 of Saturday's doubleheader against the Nationals, Justin Toscano of The Bergen Record reports. Porcello was unable to start Friday after the game was rained out, but he'll make his final start of the regular season during Saturday's nightcap with Jacob deGrom starting Game 1. Porcello posted a season-high 10 strikeouts in his last start but was charged with an unlucky loss.
Porcello's scheduled start Friday against the Nationals has been rained out. The game will be made up as part of a doubleheader Saturday. Porcello will likely start one of those two games.
Porcello (1-6) allowed one run on three hits and two walks while striking out 10 over seven innings as he was charged with the loss Sunday against Atlanta. Porcello had one of his best starts of the year Sunday as he logged a season-high 10 strikeouts and only allowed a single run in the sixth inning. However, the Mets didn't provide any run support, and the bullpen struggled late in the contest. The 31-year-old now has a 5.46 ERA and 51:14 K:BB over 56 innings this year. His final start of the regular season should come on the road Friday against the Nationals.
Porcello (1-5) took the loss Tuesday, giving up four runs on six hits and two walks over six innings as the Mets were downed 4-1 by the Phillies. He struck out five. The right-hander remains winless over his last seven starts, although much of that is due to bad luck and minimal run support -- Porcello's only served up three homers in 49 innings this season, and his .390 BABIP has led to a 6.06 ERA and 1.53 WHIP, but only a 3.11 FIP. He'll look for a better result in his next outing Sunday, at home against Atlanta.
