Mets pitcher Hansel Robles has been suspended for three games for intentionally throwing at Phillies catcher Cameron Rupp on Wednesday, per Joel Sherman of MLB.com. This suspension will not affect his eligibility for the postseason, but if Robles chooses to appeal the decision the punishment would extend into next season. While the 25 year old has pitched well this season, he's given up seven runs in the past two weeks, so it could be a benefit to get a few games off before gearing up for the playoffs.
Mets pitcher Hansel Robles had to travel to the Dominican Republic to deal with a death in the family, reports ESPNNewYork.com. Robles will not be available during Thursday's contest and there is no date for his return. He has a 3.50 ERA over 46 1/3 innings.
Mets reliever Hansel Robles pitched two scoreless innings to pick up the win in relief on Friday. Robles allowed one hit and struck out a career-high three. He won for the first time since June 15 to even his record at 2-2.
As expected, the Mets promoted catcher prospect Kevin Plawecki and reliever Hansel Robles from Triple-A Las Vegas on Tuesday.

The Mets will promote catcher Kevin Plawecki and reliever Hansel Robles from Triple-A Las Vegas on Tuesday, the team announced Monday. The team will also transfer Zack Wheeler (elbow) to the 60-day disabled list. Plawecki and Robles are being called up due to injuries to Travis d'Arnaud and Jerry Blevins. D'Arnaud is expected to miss at least a month due to a metacarpal fracture of the little finger of his right hand. Blevins has a distal radius fracture of the left arm and will miss more than six weeks. Plawecki is considered the 63rd-best prospect in baseball by MLB.com and Baseball America. He is batting .216 (8 for 37) with one triple, two doubles and six RBI in nine games for Triple-A Las Vegas. Robles is 1-0 with a 0.00 ERA in five relief outings for Las Vegas. He has 10 strikeouts in 7 2/3 innings.
