The New York Mets have had a rough start to the season.
They are 25-24 on the season and just surpassed a .500 record with a recent hot streak.
But there are still plenty of issues that need to be addressed with their roster.
One of the glaring issues is the starting pitching.
Their rotation has struggled to stay healthy this year.
Both Max Scherzer and Justin Verlander have missed time due to injuries.
The rest of their rotation has failed to step in when given an opportunity.
One pitcher who has struggled is Tylor Megill.
According to Anthony DiComo, Megill has a 5.29 ERA over his last seven starts.
The final line on Tylor Megill:
3.2 IP, 6 H, 6 R, 4 ER, 2 BB, 5 K.
Some questionable defense and an overturned call made Megill's line worse than he deserved, but it was a tough outing regardless. He has a 5.29 ERA over his last seven starts.
Cubs 6, Mets 1 after four.

Megill has rarely given the Mets a chance to compete in his starts.
When you give up a bunch of runs early in the game it dampens the mood in the dugout.
On the season the Mets have a team ERA of 4.70, which is 24th in the MLB.
Despite how poorly Megill has pitched, he still leads the Mets in starts and wins this season.
Another Mets starter who has been abysmal is David Peterson.
He has started eight games this season and has an ERA of 8.08.
If the Mets hope to return to the playoffs this season, they need more from their starters.
At some point, these pitchers will have to pitch up to their capabilities.
Megill might not be long for the rotation with how poorly he has pitched.
But the Mets do not have many better options to fill his spot.
The Mets just need their guys to step up and perform how they are expected to.NEXT: Pete Alonso Has Made Even More Mets History
