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.
Porcello allowed five runs on 10 hits while striking out three across four innings against the Orioles on Wednesday. He did not factor into the decision.
It seemed as though the Orioles were hitting almost everything Porcello was throwing at them. He gave up two runs on four hits in the first inning and then allowed three more runs on back-to-back hits (double and then a single) in the third. The 32-year-old fortunately was able to get through a clean fourth before manager Luis Rojas threw in the towel and called upon his bullpen to finish out the game. Wednesday's outing marked the second time this season Porcello has given up 10 hits in an outing as the right-hander is currently sporting a career-worst 6.07 ERA and 1.56 WHIP across 43 innings.
Porcello didn't factor into the decision in Friday's 5-3 loss to the Phillies, giving up two runs on three hits and two walks over six innings. He struck out six.
The 32-year-old needed exactly 100 pitches (65 strikes) to deliver his third quality start of the season, but he exited the game with the score tied 2-2 and had to watch as Jared Hughes gave the game away in the seventh and eighth. Porcello has done an excellent job of keeping the ball down and in the park this year -- his 0.46 HR/9 would be a career low -- but a .366 BABIP has saddled him with a 5.54 ERA that's almost double his 2.95 FIP. He'll look for better luck in his next outing Wednesday, at home against the Orioles.
Porcello allowed two runs on four hits and two walks while striking out two over five innings in Sunday's Game 1 loss to the Yankees. He didn't factor into the decision.
Although Porcello let up two runs over his five innings, he appeared to be in good shape when he left the game as the Mets held a 4-2 lead. The team scored three more runs in the sixth inning, but the bullpen imploded in the seventh inning, which forced Porcello to settle for a no-decision. The right-hander was coming off three consecutive losses and now carries a 6.00 ERA over 33 innings this season. He'll attempt to return to the win column at home Friday against the Phillies.
Porcello (1-4) took the loss in Game 1 of Tuesday's doubleheader against the Marlins after allowing four runs on five hits over three innings. He had four strikeouts and zero walks.
The 31-year-old's outing was interrupted by a rain delay, but he may not have pitched much longer regardless given how the first three innings transpired. Porcello has a 6.43 ERA, 1.64 WHIP and 26:6 K:BB through 28 innings, and could start Sunday against the Yankees, depending how the Mets organize the rotation coming out of the twin bill.
Porcello is starting Game 1 of Tuesday's doubleheader against the Marlins.
He will be starting with several days of extra rest following the Mets' COVID-19 postponements. Porcello will get two starts this week, also taking the mound Sunday against the Yankees.
Porcello won't start this weekend against the Yankees as the series was postponed due to positive COVID-19 test results, Tim Healey of Newsday reports.
Porcello was set to start Friday before that game was postponed following two positive tests from the Mets, and the league has now pushed back all three games of the series. The Mets' next scheduled game is currently Tuesday against the Marlins, but Porcello isn't guaranteed to take the mound for it as the team could adjust its starting rotation coming out of the weekend.
Porcello's scheduled start against the Yankees on Friday was postponed due to a positive COVID-19 test, Anthony DiComo of MLB.com reports.
A player and a staff member for the Mets reportedly tested positive for COVID-19, prompting MLB to postpone the team's next two games. It remains to be seen whether the Mets will play the Yankees at all this weekend, leaving Porcello's next start in limbo.
Porcello (1-3) allowed four runs on 10 hits and no walks while striking out six over six innings as he was charged with the loss Sunday against the Phillies.
Porcello has struggled to keep the basepaths clear to begin the season, and he couldn't keep the Phillies' bats in check as he picked up his second straight loss. The right-hander saw his ERA spike in 2019 during his final season in Boston, and the rate has continued to rise to begin the 2020 season as he carries a 5.76 ERA and 1.64 WHIP over 25 innings this year. He'll look to return to the win column at home Friday against the Yankees.
Porcello (1-2) took the loss Tuesday as the Mets fell 2-1 to the Nationals, giving up two runs on eight hits over six innings. He struck out five.
The right-hander came through with his second straight quality start, but Porcello still wound up on the wrong end of the decision as the Mets' bats couldn't break through against Max Scherzer. Despite his recent success, Porcello's 5.68 ERA and 1.63 WHIP are still stained by his ugly initial outings, but he'll look to keep rolling in his next start Sunday in Philadelphia.
Porcello (1-1) earned the win Wednesday against the Nationals after allowing one run on five hits with four strikeouts and zero walks over seven innings.
The veteran right-hander struggled through his first two starts with 11 runs (nine earned), 12 hits and six walks given up over only six innings, but he was able to stymie Washington on Wednesday. A single and a double resulted in a run during the opening frame, but Porcello allowed only three singles over the following six innings. He'll carry a 6.92 ERA and 1.77 WHIP into his next start, which lines up for Tuesday versus the Nationals.
Porcello allowed four runs (three earned) on five hits and three walks while striking out five over four innings in Friday's loss to Atlanta. He didn't factor into the decision.
Porcello posted a career-worst 5.52 ERA with the Red Sox last season and hasn't been able to stifle run production in either of his first two starts of this season. The right-hander was slightly more effective Friday and was able to finish with a no-decision in a high-scoring contest. The 31-year-old will attempt to turn things around on the road Wednesday against the Nationals.
Porcello (0-1) allowed seven runs (six earned) on seven hits and three walks over two-plus innings Sunday versus the Braves. He took the loss and struck out just one batter.
Porcello's Mets debut got off to a rough start as he allowed RBI singles to Matt Adams and Dansby Swanson in the first inning. The veteran right-hander then failed to record an out in the third before he was replaced by Corey Oswalt. Porcello posted a career-worst 5.52 ERA last year, his last of five seasons with the Red Sox, and he's off to a similarly poor beginning with his new team. The 31-year-old is expected to start Friday's rematch in Atlanta.
Porcello is scheduled to start Sunday against the Braves, Tim Healey of Newsday reports.
The Mets needed to adjust their rotation after Marcus Stroman (calf) landed on the IL, which helps explain why Porcello was scratched from his scheduled intrasquad start Wednesday. The right-hander, who posted a 5.52 ERA and 1.39 WHIP across 32 starts in 2019, will follow Jacob deGrom and Steven Matz in the rotation.
Porcello didn't make his scheduled intrasquad start Wednesday for an undisclosed reason, Deesha Thosar of the New York Daily News reports.
Porcello was slated to start in Wednesday's game as his final tune-up before the regular season, but he didn't take the mound to begin the matchup, with Hunter Strickland starting in his place. It's unclear whether the 31-year-old will miss any time to begin the season. If healthy, Porcello is slated to occupy the No. 3 spot in the Mets' rotation after recording a 5.52 ERA and 1.39 WHIP over 32 starts with the Red Sox last year.
Porcello was named the starter for Saturday's exhibition matchup with the Yankees, Justin Toscano of The Bergen Record reports.
The veteran right-hander has a stable spot in the rotation and will take the mound for the Mets' first exhibition contest. Porcello won the AL Cy Young in 2016 but has a 4.79 ERA over the past three seasons, including a career-worst 5.52 ERA in 2019. He'll look to become his former self for this season after a strong showing in spring with three runs allowed over 10.2 innings.
