Mets' Franklyn Kilome: Sent to secondary site
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Kilome was optioned to the Mets' alternate training site Saturday, Tim Healey of Newsday reports.

Kilome returned from a fingernail injury Friday and made an awful appearance on his lone day on the roster, giving up six runs against the Braves while recording just four outs. He now owns an 11.12 ERA and 2.03 WHIP in his 11.1-inning debut season. Corey Oswalt (biceps) returned from the injured list in a corresponding move.

Mets' Franklyn Kilome: Activated from injured list
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Kilome (finger) was activated from the 10-day injured list Friday, Tim Healey of Newsday reports.

Kilome spent slightly more than the minimum 10 days sidelined with a split fingernail. He's thrown 10 innings this season, the first of his big-league career, allowing eight runs. Luis Guillorme was optioned in a corresponding move.

Mets' Franklyn Kilome: Heads to injured list
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Kilome was placed on the injured list with a split fingernail, Tim Healey of Newsday reports.

It was announced Wednesday that the team had optioned Kilome to the alternate site. However, he suffered the injury while with the major-league team, meaning he remains with the big-league club for the time being. Kilome has registered a 7.20 ERA with a 1.70 WHIP and an 11:6 K:BB across 10 innings this season.

Mets' Franklyn Kilome: Heads back to alternate site
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

The Mets optioned Kilome to their alternate training site Wednesday, Tim Healey of Newsday reports.

Kilome will cede his spot on the 28-man active roster to reliever Miguel Castro, whom the Mets acquired Monday in a deadline-day deal with the Orioles. The rookie right-hander worked behind spot starter Ariel Jurado in Tuesday's 9-5 loss to the Orioles, covering three innings while giving up four runs on five hits and a walk.

Mets' Franklyn Kilome: Rejoins big club
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

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

The Mets overhauled their bullpen ahead of the final two games of the Subway Series, moving Steven Matz (shoulder) and Dellin Betances (lat) to the injured list and bringing aboard three fresh arms in Kilome, Drew Smith and Ariel Jurado. If Kilome isn't needed in relief Sunday or in Monday's make-up game against the Marlins, he could be a candidate to make a spot start or to work as a primary pitcher in Tuesday's series opener versus the Orioles. Kilome's previous two appearances with the Mets have come in long relief, with the 25-year-old covering seven innings while giving up four runs on six hits and five walks.

Mets' Franklyn Kilome: Optioned to alternate camp
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Kilome was optioned to the Mets' alternate training site Tuesday.

Kilome earned his first career save Monday against the Marlins, but he'll return to alternate camp just one day later. The right-hander could appear in the Mets' bullpen later in the season, but he'd likely pitch in low-leverage situations if he reappears in the majors. Right-hander Drew Smith was recalled in a corresponding move.

Mets' Franklyn Kilome: Nabs three-inning save
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Kilome recorded his first career save in Monday's 11-4 win over the Marlins, giving up two runs on four hits and five walks over three innings. He struck out four.

The right-hander wasn't exactly effective, but he closed out the big win in what effectively became a bullpen day for the Mets after nominal starter Robert Gsellman only lasted 1.2 innings. Kilome will likely continue to work in low-leverage spots while he's on the active roster.

Mets' Franklyn Kilome: Recalled Sunday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Kilome was recalled from the Mets' alternate training site Sunday, Anthony DiComo of MLB.com reports.

The 25-year-old righty gave up two runs while striking out five in four innings during his big-league debut earlier this season. This is his first year back from Tommy John surgery. The Mets' rotation has been decimated this season, so Kilome could end up making a start for the club sometime next week.

Mets' Franklyn Kilome: Sent to alternate camp site
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

The Mets optioned Kilome to their alternate training site Sunday, Tim Healey of Newsday reports.

Kilome made his MLB debut in long relief in Saturday's 7-1 loss to the Braves, covering four frames and giving up two runs on two hits while striking out five. Given the hefty workload, Kilome wasn't likely to be available out of the bullpen for at least a few days, so he was a logical choice to be bumped off the active roster with the Mets needing a spot for Jared Hughes (illness), who was activated from the COVID-19 injured list.

Mets' Franklyn Kilome: Fans five in MLB debut
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Kilome gave up two runs on two hits while striking out five over four innings of relief in Saturday's 7-1 loss to Atlanta.

In his big-league debut, Kilome gave the rest of the Mets bullpen the night off with a strong performance that was only blemished by a Ronald Acuna homer. The 25-year-old right-hander didn't pitch at all last year as he recovered from Tommy John surgery, so this display of control -- zero walks, and 39 strikes among his 63 pitches -- was something of a surprise. Kilome won't work his way into a prominent role on the staff right away, but if he continues to pound the strike zone with his mid-90s sinker, slow curve, and splitter, he could make a case for a spot in the rotation before the season is over.

Mets' Franklyn Kilome: Called up by Mets
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Kilome was recalled by the Mets on Friday, Tim Britton of The Athletic reports.

The 25-year-old has yet to pitch above Double-A and hasn't pitched in any capacity since 2018, missing all of last season while recovering from Tommy John surgery. The young righty was at least a moderately interesting prospect prior to his injury, projecting as either a back-end starter or a weapon in relief. His numbers hardly popped off the page at the Double-A level, however, as he posted a 4.08 ERA, a 20.2 percent strikeout rate and a 10.6 percent walk rate in 31 starts. Between the lack of high-level success and his long layoff, expectations should be muted for Kilome for now.

Mets' Franklyn Kilome: Part of player pool
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Kilome joined the Mets' 60-man player pool Monday, Tim Healey of Newsday reports.

Kilome won't be one of the Mets' top options this season, as he's yet to reach Triple-A and had been optioned to Double-A back in March. With no minor-league season this year, Kilome could wind up filling a minor role for the big-league club in the event of an injury crisis, but the team is likely more concerned with simply monitoring his development as closely as possible, as he missed the entirety of 2019 while recovering from Tommy John surgery.

Mets' Franklyn Kilome: Opening year at Double-A
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

The Mets optioned Kilome to Double-A Binghamton on March 6.

Kilome is fully healthy after undergoing Tommy John surgery in October 2018, but he'll likely face an unspecified innings limit in his return to action this season. The Mets may not even need to monitor his workload all that closely, as the organization could decide to move him into a relief role if they're not confident he has the necessary command or repertoire to handle starting duty.

Mets' Franklyn Kilome: Healthy again after Tommy John
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Kilome (elbow) tossed a simulated game Thursday, Anthony DiComo of MLB.com reports.

Kilome is healthy again after he was sidelined for the entire 2019 season following Tommy John surgery. The right-hander has already made two appearances for the Mets in the Grapefruit League, covering two frames and giving up two runs on three hits and no walks. The fact that he was used for one inning in both of those outings suggests the Mets likely plan to develop him as a reliever, something that would accelerate his arrival to the big leagues. He'll likely report to Triple-A Syracuse or Double-A Binghamton to begin the season.

Mets' Franklyn Kilome: Rehab progressing well
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Kilome (elbow) is progressing well in his rehab from Tommy John surgery in October of 2018, and he is expected to be healthy for 2020, Tim Healey of Newsday reports.

The 24-year-old has yet to make it past the Double-A level, but he will likely be able to have a full season of work in 2020 barring any setbacks. General manager Brodie Van Wagenen said Tuesday that he is unsure whether Kilome will serve as a starter or reliever once he returns from his surgery. Kilome recorded a 4.18 ERA with a 125:61 K:BB in 26 starts at the Double-A level in 2018.

Mets' Franklyn Kilome: Sent to minors camp
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Kilome (elbow) was optioned to the Mets' minor-league camp Tuesday, Deesha Thosar of the New York Daily News reports.

Kilome will be sidelined all season after undergoing Tommy John surgery in October, so his assignment to minor-league camp is merely procedural. He could revert to the 60-day injured list at some point in 2019 when the Mets need to open up an extra spot on the 40-man roster.

October 25, 2018 02:32 PM
Mets' Franklyn Kilome: Undergoes Tommy John surgery
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Kilome underwent Tommy John surgery Wednesday, Matt Ehalt of The Bergen Record reports.

This is a tough break for Kilome and the Mets, as the 23-year-old -- who was acquired from the Phillies back in July in exchange for Asdrubal Cabrera -- will now be sidelined until the 2020 season. The big right-hander spent all of the 2018 campaign at Double-A, posting a combined 4.18 ERA, 1.34 WHIP and 125:61 K:BB across 26 starts (140 innings) between Reading and Binghampton.

July 27, 2018 08:08 PM
Mets' Franklyn Kilome: Traded to Mets
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Kilome was traded from the Phillies to the Mets on Friday in exchange for Asdrubal Cabrera, Ken Rosenthal of The Athletic reports.

Kilome looks the part of an innings-eating starter (6-foot-6, roughly 190 pounds) and has power stuff, but inconsistency has plagued him at every minor-league stop, and his shaky command portends an eventual move to the bullpen. He has a 4.24 ERA, 1.44 WHIP and an 83:51 K:BB in 102 innings (19 starts) at Double-A this year. The Mets will undoubtedly continue to develop him as a starter for now, but his most realistic path to fantasy relevance would be as a late-inning reliever.

Phillies' Franklyn Kilome: Strikeouts and walks both high
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Kilome is striking out and walking a lot of batters for Double-A Reading so far this season, The Athletic Philadelphia reports.

Kilome's strikeout rate sits at 28.8 percent while his walk rate is 10.2 percent. The walks are hardly a surprise, as the 6-foot-6 righty has posted a walk rate above nine percent at every stop since 2015. The strikeout rate, however, is a career high and a promising sign that Kilome could be harnessing his potential. The command issues are expected for a young pitcher of his size, but the 22-year-old has the potential to overcome the walks if he strikes out enough batters. He projects as a mid-rotation starter with a mid-90s fastball and a plus curve, but he'll need some changeup and command development to get there.

Phillies' Franklyn Kilome: Bound for Double-A to begin season
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Kilome is expected to begin the 2018 season at Double-A Reading, Matt Gelb of The Athletic reports.

After being added to the Phillies' 40-man roster in November, Kilome is attending big-league spring training, but he isn't being considered for an Opening Day roster spot. Instead, the 6-foot-6 right-hander will head back to the Eastern League after struggling with his control in a five-start sample with Reading late last season. Kilome's big frame and live arm give him a chance at eventually developing into a mid-rotation starter in the big leagues, though his inconsistent mechanics make a bullpen assignment for likely.
