  • 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: Joins big-league roster

    Smith was recalled from Triple-A Syracuse on Sunday, Mike Puma of the New York Post reports.

  • 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.

  • Mets' Drew Smith: Joins big club Sunday

    The Mets recalled Smith from their alternate training site ahead of Sunday's doubleheader with the Yankees, Mike Puma of the New York Post reports.

    The Mets moved Steven Matz (shoulder) and Dellin Betances (lat) to the 10-day injured list to make room in the bullpen for three fresh arms in Smith, Franklyn Kilome and Ariel Jurado.

  • Mets' Drew Smith: Optioned to alternate training site

    Smith was optioned to the team's alternate training site Thursday in order to make room for Michael Wacha on the 28-man roster, Anthony DiComo of MLB.com reports.

    Smith holds a decent 3.00 ERA on the campaign, but is the odd man out with Michael Wacha (shoulder) being activated from the injured list. Wacha was originally scheduled to start Thursday, but with the game being postponed, he will now start Game 1 of Friday's doubleheader against the Yankees.

  • Mets' Drew Smith: Sent to alternate training site

    Smith was optioned to the Mets' alternate training site Friday, Tim Britton of The Athletic reports.

    The 26-year-old was demoted in order to make room on the roster for Robinson Cano (groin), who was activated off the injured list. Smith pitched well with two runs allowed and a 6:0 K:BB through six innings, so he figures to rejoin the big-league club before long.

  • Mets' Drew Smith: Chance at roster spot

    Smith (elbow) is a member of the Mets' 60-player roster pool and could be ready for the start of the season, Anthony DiComo of MLB.com reports.

    The 26-year-old underwent Tommy John surgery in March 2019 but appears to be in the final stages of his recovery, as he's been throwing off a mound since March. Smith had a solid rookie showing in 2018 with a 3.54 ERA, 1.43 WHIP and 18:6 K:BB over 28 innings, so he could be a factor in the Mets' bullpen once fully healthy.

  • Mets' Drew Smith: Begins throwing program

    He had Tommy John surgery last March, so he probably won't be ready to pitch in games until at least April or May. Smith had a 3.54 ERA, 1.43 WHIP and 18 strikeouts in 28 innings out of the big-league bullpen in 2018.
