Eickhoff had a rough first inning Wednesday against the Mets, allowing three runs. But he retired 16 consecutive batters at one point, which the Phillies hope is a sign of things to come in the final few weeks of the season.

Colon threw more changeups in his last start than in any outing since PITCHf/x started keeping track nine years ago. He may need to mix things up yet again on Monday, facing the Phillies for the fourth time this season. He’s 3-0 against them.

Niese struggled in his last three starts of August, posting a 7.79 ERA with nearly as many walks (nine) as strikeouts (13). As the Mets spend the next five weeks mapping out their playoff rotation, it would behoove Niese to improve in September.

Nola has lived up to the hype, particularly in his last two starts. He has allowed a combined one run in 15 innings against the Marlins and Padres. He faces a much tougher test against the Mets.

A week on the shelf didn’t hurt Harvey in the least. He fired six shutout innings his last time out on 11 days' rest. The temptation to limit Harvey’s innings remains alive for the Mets, who have eyes on October.
