Gsellman is fully recovered from the torn lat that ended his 2019 season early, Mike Puma of The New York Post reports. "I am healthy and I am feeling great," Gsellman said Friday.
The right-hander thinks he could have returned to the mound in September, but the club elected not to rush him back into action. The Mets' offseason additions of Rick Porcello and Michael Wacha have closed the door on any chance Gsellman might have had on getting stretched out as a starter in camp, but he could still be a useful middle-relief or set-up arm after posting a K% north of 20 percent each of the last two years.
Gsellman (triceps) and the Mets agreed to terms on a one-year, $1,225,000 contract Friday, avoiding arbitration, freelance baseball writer Robert Murray reports.
Gsellman's ERA slipped to 4.66 in his fourth season with the Mets, his second spent exclusively in relief. He was reportedly considered a candidate to return to the rotation earlier in the offseason, though the signings of Rick Porcello and Michael Wacha may take him out of the picture.
Gsellman (triceps) is a candidate for the Mets' starting rotation in 2020, Tim Healey of Newsday reports.
The 26-year-old's ERA rose to 4.66 with a 60:23 K:BB over 63.2 innings in 2019, but general manager Brodie Van Wagenen said both Gsellman and Seth Lugo are candidates to start next season depending on who the Mets sign in free agency. Lugo would be the more likely candidate given his recent success out of the bullpen and past production as a starter. However, Gsellman also has experience as a starter, recording a 4.44 ERA with a 1.44 WHIP over 2016 and 2017, when he made 29 starts.
Gsellman (triceps) won't return from the injured list this weekend and is done for the season, Tim Healey of Newsday reports.
Gsellman was scheduled for a live batting practice session Thursday to potentially set him up for one final appearance, but it was rained out and he'll instead continue his rehab work. The 26-year-old ends 2019 with a 4.66 ERA, 1.37 WHIP and 60:23 K:BB across 63.2 innings.
Gsellman (triceps) will advance to live batting practice Monday at Citi Field, Tim Healey of Newsday reports.
Gsellman has been on the shelf since mid-August after suffering a partially torn lat muscle. His season was originally presumed to have been over, but he remains optimistic that he can make a return to the bullpen before the team's last game against the Braves next Sunday.
Gsellman (triceps) threw a bullpen session Sunday and will throw another sometime over the next few days, Mike Puma of the New York Post reports.
Gsellman has felt strong throughout his rehab so far, and according to Puma, he's "very" optimistic that he'll be able to come back before the season concludes. The right-hander was placed on the injured list in mid-August with a partially torn right triceps.
Gsellman (triceps) said he felt great after long-tossing from 100 feet Tuesday, Justin Toscano of The Bergen Record reports.
He remains on track to try to return before the end of the season. Even if he makes it back, he would likely return in a low-leverage role.
Gsellman (triceps) played catch Wednesday and remains hopeful to pitch again this season, Tim Healey of Newsday reports.
After the Mets revealed in late August that Gsellman was contending with a partially torn right triceps, the expectation was that the team would shut him down for the season. That still seems to be the most likely outcome, but Gsellman hasn't thrown in the towel just yet. Assuming his triceps responds well to throwing off flat ground, he'll likely advance to mound work next week and target a return from the injured list in late September.
Gsellman is likely done for the year after being diagnosed with a partially torn right triceps, Matt Ehalt of Yahoo Sports reports.
He was originally diagnosed with right triceps tightness, but it turns out the issue was more severe than that. Gsellman should be able to be ready for spring training, assuming he avoids surgery.
Gsellman was placed on the 10-day injured list with right triceps tightness, Tim Healey of Newsday reports.
He has not pitched since Aug. 11 due to the issue. Walker Lockett was recalled to take his place in the bullpen.
Gsellman hasn't pitched the last two days due to triceps soreness, Deesha Thosar of the New York Daily News reports.
The Mets don't appear to be considering a trip to the injured list for Gsellman just yet, but if his absence lasts much longer, he may need to hit the IL. His last outing dates back to Sunday, when he surrendered two runs on two hits over one-third of an inning.
Gsellman (2-2) picked up the win Tuesday, striking out two over two perfect frames in an extra-innings victory over the White Sox.
The right-hander took care of business in the 10th and 11th innings, and Gsellman was rewarded when Jeff McNeil and Michael Conforto launched back-to-back homers in the top of the 11th. With Edwin Diaz's name appearing in trade rumors, the Mets' closer role could open up in August, but Gsellman's 4.71 ERA and 1.39 WHIP likely won't merit strong consideration for ninth-inning work.
Gsellman (0-2) took the loss against the Giants on Sunday, tossing 1.1 innings and giving up a walkoff solo home run to Mike Yastrzemski in the 12th.
After Jeurys Familia walked the first two batters in the 11th, Gsellman got the call and escaped the jam. but his luck didn't hold in the following frame as he threw a 3-2 changeup to Yastrzemski that got a little too much of the plate. The right-hander now carries a 6.52 ERA over his last 9.2 innings, having served up three homers in that stretch, and his 1.34 WHIP actually masks how shaky his command and control have been -- he has a 9:4 K:BB, but that doesn't include four HBPs.
Gsellman walked two batters but didn't allow a run in two-thirds of an inning during Tuesday's win over the Twins.
Entering the game in the fifth inning, the right-hander couldn't finish the frame and needed to be bailed out by Luis Avilan, missing out on a chance to get credited with the win in the process. That's actually an improvement for Gsellman, though, as he'd been scored upon in four of his prior five appearances. The poor stretch has inflated his ratios to a 5.07 ERA and 1.47 WHIP, and he has nearly as many blown saves (four) as he does holds (five).
Gsellman experienced back tightness after tossing a scoreless inning Friday against the Cardinals, Justin Toscano of The Bergen Record reports.
Gsellman threw 20 pitches in the seventh inning and complained of back tightness after the frame, which is why he wasn't sent back out to handle the eighth. He'll be considered day-to-day moving forward.
Gsellman walked one in a scoreless ninth inning Friday to record his first save of the season in a 5-4 win over the Diamondbacks.
With both Edwin Diaz and Jeurys Familia having seen heavy recent usage, Mets manager Mickey Callaway turned to Seth Lugo in the eighth inning and Gsellman in the ninth to protect a one-run lead, and the duo got the job done. The latter had been in a funk, allowing six runs over his last 4.2 innings, but Gsellman now sports a 3.63 ERA, 1.33 WHIP and 33:12 K:BB with one win and four holds in 26 appearances this season.
Gsellman struck out one in a perfect seventh inning during Wednesday's win over the Nationals.
With his team in a 1-0 hole, Gsellman breezed through the bottom of the Nats' order on seven pitches (five strikes). The right-hander has turned in eight straight scoreless appearances, posting a 12:5 K:BB over 12 innings during that stretch, and he now sports a 2.48 ERA and 1.17 WHIP on the season. Gsellman isn't seeing the highest-leverage work -- he has zero wins or saves and only three holds through 21 appearances -- but his current form could move him into the setup crew for the Mets in the near future.
Gsellman recorded the final two outs in the eighth inning to record his second hold of the season in Friday's win over the Cardinals.
The right-hander remains part of the setup mix in front of closer Edwin Diaz, although he's behind Jeurys Familia and Seth Lugo in the pecking order. Encouragingly, Gsellman's averaging a career-high 95.7 mph with his fastball, and his 3.27 ERA, 1.45 WHIP and 13:2 K:BB through 11 innings give him some fantasy value in formats where high-K relievers are worth rostering.
Gsellman gave up a hit and struck out one in a scoreless inning of relief during Sunday's loss to the Nationals.
The right-hander was effective in this one, but he's been tagged for runs in three of his five appearances so far. More encouraging is his 5:0 K:BB through five innings -- if Gsellman continues to command the strike zone in that fashion, he'll quickly chip away at his 5.40 ERA and position himself for a key role in the Mets' bullpen.
Gsellman tossed a perfect inning of relief in Friday's Grapefruit League game against the Nationals.
While the right-hander has a superficially solid 3.52 ERA and 1.04 WHIP through 7.2 spring innings, Gsellman's 2:1 K:BB is disappointing. After posting a career-high 13 saves and 16 holds last season, he's expected to fill a middle-relief role in 2019 behind Edwin Diaz and Jeurys Familia in the bullpen pecking order.
