  • Mets' Tylor Megill: Back to minors

    Megill was optioned to Triple-A Syracuse on Saturday.

    Megill has had some inconsistent outings of late, as he's turned in a 5.68 ERA and 1.42 WHIP across his last four starts and 19 innings. However, he'll end his rookie campaign on a solid note after throwing five scoreless innings to earn the win Friday against Atlanta. Overall, Megill managed a 4.52 ERA and 1.28 WHIP with a 99:27 K:BB across 89.2 frames on the season. Robert Gsellman was activated from the injured list in the corresponding move.

  • Mets' Tylor Megill: Doesn't fare well against Milwaukee

    Megill (3-6) allowed four runs on five hits and four walks while striking out two over four innings as he took the loss against the Brewers on Friday.

    Megill struggled to keep the ball in the yard Friday, letting up three solo home runs. Kolten Wong took him deep in the first and then Willy Adames and Christian Yelich went back-to-back off him in the third. The Brewers then got to him again in the fifth after Yelich led off the inning with a triple and later scored. The 25-year-old Megill also struggled with his control; his four walks were the most he's had in a start this season. Megill has struggled mightily since late August with a 2-4 record, 7.85 ERA and 1.67 WHIP over six starts. He's allowed at least four runs each time he's lost over that span and will look to turn things around when the Marlins come to town next week.

  • Mets' Tylor Megill: Struggles against St. Louis

    Megill (3-5) allowed six runs on nine hits and two walks with three strikeouts through three innings, taking the loss in Wednesday's 11-4 defeat to the Cardinals.

    The bulk of the damage to Megill's line came in the first inning, when the Cardinals sent nine men to the plate and scored five runs. He ran into more trouble in the fourth, as he gave up a home run to Harrison Bader, a double to Jon Lester and a single to Tommy Edman before getting the hook. With this clunker in the books, it might be time to start asking some questions about the 26-year-old's workload. Between stints with Double-A Binghamton, Triple-A Syracuse and the Mets, Megill has worked 121 innings in 2021. That's more frames than he's thrown in a single season at any level in his career. His ERA is starting to show it, too, as it sits at an ugly 7.66 over his last five starts.

  • Mets' Tylor Megill: Dominates Yankees in victory

    Megill (3-4) allowed two runs on four hits and a walk over seven innings Friday, striking out 10 and earning a win over the Yankees.

    It was a career night for the 6-foot-7 rookie, setting new career bests with seven innings and 10 punchouts. Megill gave up a run on an RBI groundout in the first inning followed by a Joey Gallo solo shot in the second. He settled in and kept the Yankees scoreless for the next five frames and lowered his season ERA to 4.06 through 77.2 innings. He's produced a 23:5 K:BB over his last three outings. Megill is lined up to face the Cardinals at home next week.

  • Mets' Tylor Megill: Fans eight in loss to Nats

    Megill (2-4) took the loss in the second game of Saturday's doubleheader against the Nationals, giving up four runs on seven hits and a walk over six innings as the Mets fell 4-3. He struck out eight.

    New York's bullpen got taxed when the matinee went to extra innings, but Megill stepped up and worked the entire nightcap, although his offense couldn't matched its 11-run outburst earlier in the day to reward the right-hander with a win. Megill did tie his career high in strikeouts, and on the year the rookie sports a 4.20 ERA, 1.25 WHIP and 78:19 K:BB through 70.2 innings.

  • Mets' Tylor Megill: Collects second win

    Megill (2-3) allowed two runs on a hit and three walks with five strikeouts in five innings, earning the win over Washington on Sunday.

    The only damage on Megill's line came in the form of a two-run home run by Josh Bell in the fourth inning. The 26-year-old right-hander has been inconsistent in August, picking up just one win in six starts while allowing four or more runs three times. He has a 4.04 ERA, 1.24 WHIP and 70:18 K:BB across 64.2 innings spanning 13 starts overall. Megill lines up for a road rematch in Washington next weekend.

  • Mets' Tylor Megill: Hit hard by Giants

    Megill (1-3) allowed seven earned runs on 11 hits and no walks while striking out five across 3.2 innings to take the loss Tuesday against the Giants.

    Megill allowed four home runs, which accounted for six of the seven earned runs that he was charged with. All four of the long balls were hit by lefties, and homers from hitters of opposite handedness have emerged as a problem for Megill. Of the 11 homers he's surrendered this season, nine have come from hitters who are left-handed. While Megill had a string of several impressive starts to begin his big-league career, he's now allowed four or more earned runs in three of his last five starts, inflating his ERA to 4.07 across 59.2 innings.

  • Mets' Tylor Megill: Sharp in no-decision

    Megill didn't factor into the decision in Wednesday's 6-2 extra-innings win over the Giants, giving up one run on five hits and two walks over six innings. He struck out six.

    Despite delivering his third quality start of the year, Megill seemed headed for his third loss until the Mets finally scored their first run of the game in the ninth inning. The rookie right-hander will take a 3.21 ERA, 1.16 WHIP and 60:15 K:BB through 56 innings into his next outing.

  • Mets' Tylor Megill: Fans six in no-decision

    Megill didn't factor into the decision in Friday's 6-5 extra-inning loss to the Dodgers, giving up three runs on six hits and a walk over five innings. He struck out six.

    The rookie right-hander didn't pitch poorly, throwing 61 of 92 pitches for strikes, but Megill exited the game down 3-0 before the Mets got him off the hook for the loss. He has a 5.40 ERA over his last four starts and 20 innings, a far cry from the 2.10 ERA he held when that stretch began, but with Jacob deGrom (elbow) looking increasingly unlikely to pitch again this season and Noah Syndergaard (elbow) ticketed for the bullpen when he finally comes off the IL, Megill's rotation spot appears secure.

  • Mets' Tylor Megill: Falls to Phillies

    Megill (1-2) took the loss Saturday, giving up four runs on five hits and a walk over 4.2 innings as the Mets were downed 5-3 by the Phillies. He struck out five.

    The rookie right-hander fired four scoreless frames before fading in the fifth, as a pair of homers helped drive him from the game. Megill has now served up four home runs over his last three starts and 15 innings, leading to an 0-2 record and 5.40 ERA over that stretch, but his 15:2 K:BB is still sharp. He could have trouble ending his skid in his next start, however, as it is likely to come in a home series against the Dodgers.

  • Mets' Tylor Megill: Stumbles against Marlins

    Megill (1-1) took the loss Monday against the Marlins after giving up five runs (four earned) on six hits over five innings. He struck out four without walking a batter.

    He left a fastball to Lewis Brinson out over the plate with the bases loaded in the first inning, and Brinson drove it the other way out of the yard to put the Mets in a quick 4-0 hole. However, Megill rebounded after that to deliver four solid frames. This was the 26-year-old's worst start in the majors so far, but he still boasts a 2.68 ERA, 1.12 WHIP and 43:11 K:BB through his first 40.1 innings. With Jacob deGrom (forearm) now not expected to return until September, Megill's spot in the rotation is fairly secure even if he continues to regress.

  • Mets' Tylor Megill: Strong effort in no-decision

    Megill didn't factor into the decision in Wednesday's 2-1 win over Atlanta, allowing one run on five hits and a walk over 5.1 innings. He struck out six.

    The 26-year-old rookie continues to impress, and only a lack of run support prevented Megill from collecting his second straight win. He's given up one run or fewer in five straight starts, and his 2.04 ERA and 39:11 K:BB through 35.1 innings will be tough to dislodge from the rotation even when the Mets' more experienced arms get healthy.

  • Mets' Tylor Megill: Sharp in first MLB win

    Megill (1-0) picked up the win Friday, allowing two hits and a walk over six scoreless innings in a 3-0 victory over the Blue Jays. He struck out five.

    The rookie continued his remarkable run of success, delivering his second straight quality start while extending his scoreless streak to 12.2 frames. Megill has a 2.10 ERA, 1.10 WHIP and 33:10 K:BB through his first 30 big-league innings, and even when the Mets' pitching staff gets healthier, it could be tough to dislodge the 25-year-old from his rotation spot.

  • Mets' Tylor Megill: Spins six scoreless innings

    Megill went six scoreless innings against Pittsburgh on Saturday, allowing six hits and striking out a pair in a no-decision.

    Megill appeared to be on his way to his first win of the season, turning a 4-0 lead over to the bullpen, but the Pirates erupted for nine runs over the final two innings, leaving Megill without a decision in his first five major-league starts. The 25-year-old produced his longest outing to date and while his two strikeouts were a season low, it was his first appearance without issuing a free pass. Megill now owns a 2.63 ERA and 1.21 in 24 innings, along with a 28:9 K:BB.

  • Mets' Tylor Megill: Fans seven across 3.2 innings

    Megill did not factor in the decision in Game 2 of Saturday's doubleheader against Pittsburgh. He completed 3.2 innings, allowing one run on four hits and three walks while striking out seven.

    The combination of hits and walks drove Megill's pitch count up to 85, resulting in a moderately early exit and preventing him from qualifying for the win. Still, it was another impressive performance from the right-hander, as he struck out seven batters for the second straight start and surrendered only one run. Megill has posted a 3.50 ERA, 1.28 WHIP and 26:9 K:BB across his first 18 major-league frames, and he continues to make a strong case to stick in the rotation throughout the second half of the campaign.

  • Mets' Tylor Megill: Sharp in no-decision

    Megill didn't factor into the decision in Monday's 4-2 win over the Brewers after allowing one run on two hits and two walks over five innings. He struck out seven.

    The only blemish on the rookie right-hander's line was a solo blast by Omar Narvaez in the fourth inning. Megill, an eighth-round pick in 2018, has looked very good through his first three big-league starts, delivering a 3.77 ERA, 1.12 WHIP and 19:6 K:BB through 14.1 innings. The 25-year-old has mixed a devastating slider (41.7 percent whiff rate so far) and a work-in-progress changeup in with a 95 mph fastball. While he might find himself in the bullpen in the second half if Carlos Carrasco (hamstring) ever gets healthy, Megill is proving he belongs in the majors.
