Gsellman allowed six runs (five earned) on four hits and three walks with four strikeouts over five innings in a no-decision Friday against the Nationals. Gsellman has completed the sixth inning just three times in seven starts since returning to the Mets rotation August 16. His inconsistency can largely be attributed to his poor control. He has walked 15 batters over just 37.2 innings in that stretch with just 21 strikeouts to offset all those free baserunners. Gsellman had allowed two runs or fewer in six of his past seven starts, but the other shoe finally dropped Friday.
Gsellman (7-7) allowed an unearned run on three hits while striking out three batters through seven innings in a winning effort against the Braves on Sunday. It's been a strong late-season stretch for Gsellman, as he's now allowed just 11 earned runs over 32.2 innings through his past six starts. However, he still sports an underwhelming 4.92 FIP and 6.1 K/9 for the season and projects to make his next start against Washington at Citi Field. Gsellman checks out as a risky start against the Nationals in most settings.
Gsellman (6-7) walked five batters and allowed five hits en route to four runs over four innings in Tuesday's loss to the Cubs. He struck out four. For every promising outing Gsellman manages to put together -- like his most recent start before this one, a solid win against the Phillies -- there's always a game like this one that brings expectations right back down. Then again, there's something to be said for a pitcher being as predictable as Gsellman; broadly speaking, he pitches well against bad offenses and poorly against good ones. He comes with risk, but the righty is streamable when the matchup leans his way.
Gsellman (6-6) gave up three runs -- two earned -- on five hits and a walk with four strikeouts while pitching all six innings of Wednesday's rain-shortened win over the Phillies. Maybe a little rain was all he needed, as Gsellman -- taking the mound for the first time since Aug. 26 -- bounced back nicely after averaging less than five innings per start over his last six outings. Overly prone to both homers and walks, Gsellman's largely made his own bad luck this year, and his occasional quality outing can't obscure his general ineffectiveness.
Gsellman was confirmed as Wednesday's starter against the Phillies, Anthony DiComo of MLB.com reports. Gsellman takes the place of Matt Harvey, who was moved to Thursday due to a weather concern for Wednesday's contest. During his latest major-league outing, Gsellman gave up six runs on nine hits and a pair of walks during a loss against the Nationals on Aug. 26, and struggled during his showing with Triple-A Las Vegas on Thursday. Throughout the course of the 2017 season, the right-hander has made 20 appearances for the Mets, posting a 5.60 ERA and 1.60 WHIP over 91.2 innings.
