  • Mets' Drew Smith: Notches hold No. 10

    Smith gave up a hit without a walk or a strikeout over 1.2 scoreless innings Thursday to record his 10th hold of the season in an extra-inning win over the Cardinals.

    After Chris Bassitt put two runners aboard with one out in the seventh inning and the Mets ahead 5-3, Smith got the call to put out the fire, although he did allow one inherited runner to score. The 28-year-old reliever is blossoming in a high-leverage role, as he came into 2022 with only seven career holds. Smith also carries a 1.53 ERA and 0.96 WHIP through 17.2 innings with a career-high 29.4 percent strikeout rate.

  • Mets' Drew Smith: Stuck with loss Friday

    Smith (0-1) took the loss Friday against the Mariners, giving up one run on one hit and two walks in one inning of relief. He struck out two.

    It was the first run Smith has given up all season, and the right-hander also walked multiple batters for the first time. The right-hander still has eight holds in 13 appearances while posting a 0.63 ERA, 0.91 WHIP and 19:8 K:BB through 14.1 innings as a key member of the Mets' high-leverage crew.

  • Mets' Drew Smith: Collects fourth hold

    Smith walked one and struck out one in one-third of an inning Friday to pick up his fourth hold of the season in an extra-inning win over the Diamondbacks.

    With a runner on second and two outs in the sixth inning, Smith relieved David Peterson and issued a free pass to Matt Davidson before fanning Christian Walker. Smith has already tied his career high in holds, and he's been a valuable middle-relief arm so far for the 11-4 Mets with a 0.00 ERA, 0.86 WHIP and 8:3 K:BB through seven appearances and seven innings.

  • Mets' Drew Smith: Impressive start to season

    Smith has recorded two holds in three appearances to begin the season, posting a 0.00 ERA and 6:0 K:BB through 3.2 innings.

    The right-hander put up strong numbers in 2021 in a middle-relief role, but Smith appears to have graduated to the setup corps this season. He's crediting usage of a sharper slider, as opposed to the cutter he had been leaning on as a breaking pitch, for his excellent early results, Tim Britton of The Athletic reports. "I just felt like when I threw the cutter and didn't get it where I wanted to get it, if I left it middle at all, it was just kind of flat and that's when I would give up damage," Smith said after Tuesday's win over the Phillies. "I kept the same grip. I just manipulate it a little differently now. I think curveball in my head while I'm holding it with my cutter grip, which turns it into a slider. It works for me, and it's been good. I'm happy where it's at right now."

  • Mets' Drew Smith: Looks sharp in intrasquad game

    Manager Buck Showalter said Smith (foot) pitched a perfect inning-plus Thursday in the Mets' intrasquad game, Anthony DiComo of MLB.com reports.

    Smith's flawless relief appearance indicates that he's fully healthy again after he didn't complete his scheduled throwing session Wednesday due to a sore right foot. The right-hander's spot in the Mets' Opening Day bullpen looks fairly secure, though he'll likely be limited to a low-leverage role to begin the season.

  • Mets' Drew Smith: Backs off throwing program

    Smith (shoulder) paused his throwing program Wednesday due to foot soreness, Mike Puma of the New York Post reports.

    Smith missed time down the stretch last season with shoulder inflammation, and he's now picked up a foot issue during spring training. The 28-year-old had a 2.40 ERA, 1.06 WHIP and 41:16 K:BB over 41.1 innings before the injury in 2021, and his availability for Opening Day is now in question.

  • Mets' Drew Smith: Ramping up again

    Smith (shoulder) resumed playing catch earlier this month but is without a clear timeline for returning from the 10-day injured list, MLB.com reports.

    Before he was placed on the injured list Aug. 14 with right shoulder inflammation, Smith had been productive for the Mets in a middle-relief role, posting a 2.40 ERA and 1.06 WHIP across 31 appearances. The Mets haven't shut Smith down for the season, but since he has yet to resume facing hitters, he may have a tough time making it back in the next two and a half weeks.

  • Mets' Drew Smith: Out with shoulder inflammation

    Smith landed on the 10-day injured list with right shoulder inflammation Saturday, Justin Toscano of The Bergen Record reports.

    Smith has pitched well in 41.1 innings for the Mets this season, cruising to a 2.40 ERA and 1.06 WHIP, though he owes at least some of his success to an unsustainable .212 BABIP. It's not yet clear how much time he'll miss.

  • Mets' Drew Smith: Still in low-leverage role

    Smith tossed two scoreless, no-hit innings in Sunday's loss to the Padres, walking two batters and striking out one.

    The 27-year-old entered the game in the eighth inning with the Mets staring at a five-run deficit. Smith had been tagged for two home runs and four earned runs over his prior four appearances, so this was a nice bounce-back effort, but he remains far from high-leverage work. On the year, he carries a 3.00 ERA, 1.25 WHIP and 12:6 K:BB through 12 innings.

  • Mets' Drew Smith: Fans three as opener

    Smith allowed two hits and one unearned run in two innings, striking out three hitters and not factoring into the decision of Saturday's 12-5 loss to the Rays.

    The righty proved effective in the opener role, holding the Rays to just a run before the Mets' bullpen allowed the game to get out of hand. Smith has now pitched three innings this season and has yet to yield an earned run. Given Saturday's success, Smith figures to serve as the opener again in the future.

  • Mets' Drew Smith: Serving as opener Saturday

    Smith will serve as the opener Saturday against the Rays, Marc Topkin of the Tampa Bay Times reports.

    Smith has appeared in one game with the Mets this season, throwing a clean inning against Baltimore on May 12. He'll likely only throw only one or two innings, with Joey Lucchesi expected to throw the bulk of the innings after Smith.

  • Mets' Drew Smith: Activated, sent down

    Smith (shoulder) was reinstated from the 10-day injured list and optioned to the Mets' alternate training site Sunday, Anthony DiComo of MLB.com reports.

    Smith had been on the injured list since the start of the regular season, but he's now fully healthy after he pitched in an intrasquad game at the Mets' alternate training site Saturday. The right-hander has made 35 relief appearances for the Mets across the last two seasons but will have to wait to make his 2021 debut until a spot opens up in the team's bullpen.

  • Mets' Drew Smith: Throwing in intrasquad game

    Smith (shoulder) will throw in an intrasquad game at the Mets' alternate training site Saturday, Anthony DiComo of MLB.com reports.

    Smith threw a live batting practice session Wednesday, and his appearance in the intrasquad game could be one of his final hurdles before he's cleared to return to make his season debut. The right-hander posted a 6.43 ERA and 1.14 WHIP in seven innings across eight relief appearances last year.
