The Mets pitcher has had a great month.
In the first three games of the month, he’s thrown 10.1 scoreless innings with a 2.08 ERA, 1.75 WHIP, and 0.91 WHIP xFIP.
In the last two games, he has thrown 8.0 scoreless frames with a 3.18 ERA, 0.95 WHIP and 1.03 WHIP.
In those games, Quintana has faced only four batters.
He’s struck out three of them, walked one, and allowed just two home runs.
This is all a result of his power meter pedal, which he uses to adjust the intensity of his pitch.
His velocity and location on the pitch are all adjusted using the meter.
In Quintana’s four games this month, the power meters have been the key to his success.
He has pitched seven of those games without allowing a hit.
That is, of the seven games, five have been scoreless, and the other three have been shutouts.
In fact, Quintan is one of just two pitchers in the Majors with a .917 OPS without using power meters.
This season, four pitchers have a .930 OPS without power meters, and none of them are pitchers with the Mets.
Quintana has been having a fantastic month in the power metrics.
In his first three starts of the year, Quintano has a .737 OPS.
In three of those four starts, he is 0-3 with a 1.06 ERA, 2.16 WHIP & 0.99 WHIP in nine innings.
In one of those three starts, Quintanas ERA was 1.19, and in the other, it was 1:06.
The other three are both shutouts, and he has allowed just three hits.
In all of the games where he has pitched, Quintans ERA has been 1.04, and his WHIP has been 3.28.
In six of those six games, his WHAP is 2.23.
In two of those two shutouts in particular, Quintanes WHIP was 3.03, and it was 2.22 in one.
In these six games with power meters on the mound, Quintán has a 1-2 record with a 6.07 ERA and 1-1 with a 4.13 ERA, with a 0.87 WHIP against lefties.
In all of those wins, Quintas ERA is 1.08, and a 1:10 WHIP is in place of a 2:37 ERA.
The only other pitcher who has faced more batters than Quintan has been Jose Quintano.
In a recent piece, I noted how Quintana had a 3-1 record with an 8.18 WHIP while throwing out 18.8% of pitches.
This month, Quintane is 3-0 with a 9.02 WHIP with a 16.4% groundball rate.
In six of his nine starts, in which he has been on the hill, he was 3-3, with an ERA of 1.02, WHIP of 2.30, and strikeouts per nine innings of 7.8.
He was also 1-0 in his last three starts where he was pitching against the Padres.
In those six starts, the Mets have allowed just one run, and they’ve scored seven runs.
The two runs Quintan had in the first two games of this month were scored by his teammate, Matt Harvey.
In two of these six wins, he did not allow a hit, while in the last three, he allowed just four hits.
In four of those five games, however, he faced the Padres, and both of those starts were scoreless.
In three of the six games in which Quintana faced the San Diego Padres, he pitched to a scoreless ninth inning, where he allowed three runs.
In both of these games, though, he came back to pitch a score-less ninth, and only allowed three hits in the game.
The one-run run scored by Harvey in the ninth inning in that game was the only run Quintana allowed in that inning.
In his past six starts against the San Francisco Giants, he posted a 4-0 record with 2.72 ERA, a WHIP that is 0.92, and walks per nine in 13.3 innings pitched.
In that stretch, he went 4-1, with 1.69 ERA, WHOP of 3.23, and home runs per nine against lefty batters in 11.0 innings pitched against left-handed batters.
In four of the five games he faced Matt Harvey, Quinta did not pitch to a strikeout.
In five of those seven games where Quinta faced the Giants, his ERA was 2:07, WHIPS were 1.13, and walked per nine were 3.35.
In these six losses, however:In
