Top Robert Gsellman News

  • Cubs' Robert Gsellman: Contract selected by Cubs

    Gsellman's contract was selected by the Cubs on Tuesday, Meghan Montemurro of the Chicago Tribune reports.

    Gsellman will offer the Cubs a multi-inning relief option. He posted a 3.77 ERA in 28.2 innings of relief for the Mets last season but struck out just 14.3 percent of opposing batters. Locke St. John was designated for assignment to clear a roster spot.

  • Cubs' Robert Gsellman: Sent to Triple-A

    The Cubs reassigned Gsellman to Triple-A Iowa on Monday.

    He was one of five players sent to the minors Tuesday as the Cubs narrowed down their group at big-league camp ahead of Opening Day. Gsellman, who joined the Cubs on a minor-league deal earlier this month, produced a 3.77 ERA and 1.19 WHIP in 28.2 innings out of the Mets bullpen in 2021.

  • Cubs' Robert Gsellman: Unlikely to make roster

    Gsellman will likely begin the year in the minors, though he could get called up later if he pitches well there, Sahadev Sharma of The Athletic reports.

    Gsellman appeared in 17 games for the Mets last season and logged 119.2 innings for New York working as a starter back in 2017, so he certainly has plenty of MLB experience. However, he's on a minor-league deal with the Cubs, and the team doesn't seem to have an open MLB bullpen spot for the 28-year-old. Gsellman could work his way into the mix at some point, though his fantasy value seems fairly limited.

  • Cubs' Robert Gsellman: Signs with Cubs

    Gsellman signed a minor-league contract with the Cubs on Thursday that includes an invite to big-league spring training, Jesse Rogers of ESPN.com reports.

    Gsellman recorded a 3.77 ERA with the Mets last season, but that came in just 28.2 innings as he was limited by a lat injury. It also came with a very low 14.3 percent strikeout rate. He'll compete for a spot in the Cubs' bullpen ahead of the 2022 campaign.

  • Robert Gsellman: Parts ways with Mets

    Gsellman was non-tendered by the Mets on Tuesday, making him a free agent, Tim Healey of Newsday reports.

    Gsellman has been a significant bullpen piece for New York over the past few years, but he appeared in only 17 games last season while dealing with a torn lat muscle. The 28-year-old had a 3.77 ERA, 1.19 WHIP and 17:7 K:BB across 28.2 innings, and he shouldn't have too much difficulty latching on elsewhere, at least on a minor-league deal.

  • Mets' Robert Gsellman: Returns Saturday

    Gsellman (lat) was activated from the 60-day injured list Saturday.

    Gsellman last took the mound for the Mets on June 19. However, he began a rehab assignment Sept. 6 and appeared in six games, totaling 6.1 innings while allowing seven earned runs on 10 hits and three walks. Gsellman is likely to serve as a low-leverage reliever across the Mets' final two games; it's possible that he could work multiple frames.

  • Mets' Robert Gsellman: Could return for final series

    Gsellman (lat) joined the Mets' taxi squad ahead of the team's season-ending series in Atlanta and could be reinstated from the 60-day injured list this weekend, Anthony Rieber of Newsday reports.

    After being shut down in late June with a torn right lat, Gsellman was cleared to begin a rehab assignment just over two months later. He's since made six rehab appearances between two affiliates, covering 6.1 innings in total while allowing seven earned runs on 10 hits and three walks. If activated this weekend, Gsellman would likely serve as a low-leverage reliever for New York.

  • Mets' Robert Gsellman: Initiates rehab assignment

    Gsellman (lat) made the first appearance of his rehab assignment at Low-A St. Lucie on Sunday, recording two outs while allowing three runs on three hits.

    Gsellman threw 12 of his 17 pitches for strikes in the rehab start, but that was about the only positive takeaway in his first outing in affiliated ball since June 19. Because he's been on the shelf for nearly three months with a right lat strain, Gsellman will likely require several more rehab appearances at multiple affiliates before the Mets bring him back from the 60-day injured list.

  • Mets' Robert Gsellman: Shifts to 60-day IL

    Gsellman (lat) was transferred to the 60-day injured list Wednesday, Anthony DiComo of MLB.com reports.

    The 27-year-old landed on the injured list at the start of the week with a torn right lat and won't throw for six weeks, so the move to the 60-day IL won't affect his return timeline. Gsellman will be eligible for activation in late August.

  • Mets' Robert Gsellman: Won't throw for six weeks

    Gsellman (lat) won't throw for six weeks, Tim Britton of The Athletic reports.

    Gsellman hit the injured list Monday with a torn right lat and was reported to be out for 6-to-8 weeks. That time frame now seems overly optimistic, as he'll need several weeks to build his arm strength back up even if he's cleared to throw immediately at the six-week mark. A late-August return now appears to be on the optimistic end of his timeline.

  • Mets' Robert Gsellman: Out 6-8 weeks with torn lat

    Gsellman is expected to be sidelined 6-to-8 weeks with a torn right lat, Steve Gelbs of SportsNet New York reports.

    The 27-year-old was placed on the injured list earlier in the day and is now facing an extended absence dur to the injury. It's unclear if Gsellman will require surgery, but he'll be unavailable until at least early August if the initial timeline holds throughout his recovery.

  • Mets' Robert Gsellman: Officially hits injured list

    Gsellman (lat) landed on the injured list as expected Monday, Anthony DiComo of MLB.com reports.

    The move was made retroactive to Sunday, meaning he'll be eligible to return next Wednesday. It's not yet clear if that's at all possible, however, with the Mets yet to specify how serious the strain is or when he's expected to return. Jeff McNeil (hamstring) was activated from the injured list in a corresponding move.

  • Mets' Robert Gsellman: Shut down with lat issue

    The Mets plan to place Gsellman on the 10-day injured list Monday with a lat injury, Andy Martino of SportsNet New York reports.

    Gsellman presumably picked up the injury coming out of his most recent relief appearance in Washington on Saturday, when he gave up a run on three hits over two innings. New York will likely officially announce Gsellman's move to the IL shortly before the first game of Monday's doubleheader with Atlanta.

  • Mets' Robert Gsellman: Stuck with loss as opener

    Gsellman (0-1) took the loss in the second game of Saturday's doubleheader against the Nationals, giving up one run on three hits over two innings. He didn't strike out or walk a batter.

    Working as the opener, Gsellman tossed 13 of 22 pitches for strikes and served up a solo shot to Kyle Schwarber before giving way to Sean Reid-Foley. The Mets didn't get on the board until the seventh inning in the 6-2 loss, saddling Gsellman with the decision. The right-hander has tossed at least two innings in five of his last six appearances, and he'll continue to give the team some length in the bullpen even if his 3.71 ERA and 15:7 K:BB through 26.2 innings don't make a strong case for high-leverage work.

  • Mets' Robert Gsellman: Starting nightcap

    Gsellman will start Game 2 of Saturday's doubleheader against the Nationals, Tim Britton of The Athletic reports.

    Gsellman hasn't pitched since June 8, so he'll have a fresh arm to begin Saturday's nightcap. The right-hander tossed 2.1 innings in his last outing and 3.2 innings in his prior appearance, and manager Luis Rojas is hopeful that the 27-year-old will be able to have a similar workload Saturday. Gsellman has posted a 3.65 ERA and 1.18 WHIP in 24.2 innings across 14 relief appearances in 2021.

  • Mets' Robert Gsellman: Strong in long relief

    Gsellman allowed two hits and struck out one in 3.2 scoreless innings in Wednesday's 7-6 win over Arizona.

    Starter David Peterson was only able to record one out, but Gsellman provided the Mets with solid innings in long relief. The 27-year-old has often seen multi-inning assignments this year. He's posted solid ratios with a 2.42 ERA, 1.07 WHIP and 14:6 K:BB across 22.1 innings in 13 appearances. Gsellman also has one hold, but he's unlikely to see much high-leverage work.

  • Mets' Robert Gsellman: Low-leverage usage so far

    Gsellman gave up a run on two hits in the sixth inning during the second game of Wednesday's doubleheader against the Cardinals.

    Entering the game with the Mets ahead 6-1, the right-hander gave up a leadoff double to Harrison Bader, who eventually came around to score. Gsellman got a late start to the season due to the team's erratic early schedule, not making his first appearance until April 17, but he's posted a 3.12 ERA, 1.04 WHIP and 5:2 K:BB over 8.2 innings now. That said, his low-leverage role gives him little fantasy value, as Gsellman doesn't have a save, hold or decision so far.

  • Mets' Robert Gsellman: Makes Opening Day roster

    Gsellman has been informed that he'll make the Opening Day roster, Mike Puma of the New York Post reports.

    Gsellman made five relief appearances for the Mets this spring and posted a 5.63 ERA and 2.00 WHIP. While his performance during Grapefruit League play was enough to break camp with the team, the right-hander is unlikely to pitch in many high-leverage situations in 2021 after he allowed 15 runs in 14 innings last season.

  • Mets' Robert Gsellman: Recovered from fractured rib

    Gsellman (ribs) made his Grapefruit League debut Thursday against the Nationals, pitching a scoreless inning in relief while working around two hits and a walk.

    Gsellman's 2020 campaign came to an end in early September when he suffered a fractured rib, but he received a clean bill of health heading into spring training. Per Anthony DiComo of MLB.com, Gsellman is included on the Mets' travel roster ahead of Monday's game against the Nationals, so he could get the chance to make his second relief appearance of the spring.
