Robles tossed three scoreless innings of relief in Tuesday's loss to the Diamondbacks, allowing one hit and one walk while striking out one. The right-hander has been dynamite in a long-relief role since rejoining the big-league bullpen right after the All-Star break, posting a 1.66 ERA, 0.97 WHIP and 25:10 K:BB in his last 21.2 innings over 15 appearances. In fact, if you toss out his three ugly outings in May right before his demotion to Triple-A Las Vegas, Robles has a 1.55 ERA on the season. Little has gone right for the Mets this season, but the 27-year-old's development into a dominant multi-inning weapon in the bullpen is a bright spot.
Robles (fatigue) struck out one in a scoreless inning against the Dodgers on Sunday. Robles, who has been dealing with general fatigue recently, returned to action after a few days off. He registered his first scoreless outing of the month, bringing his ERA down to 5.17 on the season. The righty remains in a setup role for the Mets.
Robles' (fatigue) MRI revealed no structural damage, Anthony DiComo of MLB.com reports. Robles left Friday's game with numbness in his right hand and an issue in his groin area, but appears to be okay after an MRI. The Mets have said he is suffering from general fatigue and will not be moved off the active roster, but he'll likely receive a few days of rest to recover.
Robles (hand) will undergo tests to determine the specific nature of his injury, Adam Rubin of the NY Post reports. Robles experienced right hand numbness while dealing with cramping in his midsection during Thursday's games, and will be examined in the next 24 hours to figure out a course of action. The reliever should be considered day-to-day until the results from his MRI are released.
Robles was called up from Triple-A Las Vegas on Sunday, Marc Craig of Newsday reports. Robles heads back to New York after spending the better part of the last two months down in Triple-A. He has appeared in 21 games for the Mets this season, allowing 15 earned runs in just 21.2 innings of work. The main problem for Robles has been giving up free bases, with 13 walks handed out to opposing batters. In a corresponding move, the team demoted Chasen Bradford back to Las Vegas.
