Mets' Robert Gsellman: Avoids arbitration
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Gsellman (ribs) and the Mets avoided arbitration Friday by agreeing to a one-year, $1.3 million deal, Joel Sherman of the New York Post reports.

Gsellman will get just a small raise over the $1.23 million he made last season. It's hard to argue he deserved a bigger one, as he allowed 15 runs in 14 innings last year while posting a 9:8 K:BB before being shut down with a fractured rib.

Mets' Robert Gsellman: Shifts to 45-day IL
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Gsellman (ribs) was transferred to the 45-day injured list after Game 1 of Saturday's doubleheader against the Nationals, Tim Healey of Newsday reports.

The 27-year-old landed on the shelf with a fractured rib in early September and wasn't expected to return this year, so it's just a procedural move to create some space on the 40-man roster. Gsellman finished 2020 with a 9.64 ERA, 2.14 WHIP and 9:8 K:BB over 14 innings across six outings (four starts).

Mets' Robert Gsellman: Likely out for season
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Gsellman was placed on the 10-day injured list with a fractured rib Wednesday, Tim Healey of Newsday reports.

Gsellman was initially believed to have sustained a left oblique injury, but he'll likely be sidelined for the remainder of the season with a fractured rib. The right-hander struggled this season with a 9.64 ERA, 2.14 WHIP and 9:8 K:BB over 14 innings during six appearances (four starts). Drew Smith was recalled by the Mets to take Gsellman's place in the bullpen.

Mets' Robert Gsellman: Sustains oblique injury
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Gsellman suffered a left oblique injury during Tuesday's loss to the Orioles, Deesha Thosar of the New York Daily News reports.

The 27-year-old worked in long relief Tuesday and surrendered six runs on six hits and two walks over 3.2 innings while throwing a season-high 76 pitches before sustaining the injury. The team has yet to provide an official timeline for his return, but given the nature of the injury, Gsellman seems likely to require a stint on the injured list.

Mets' Robert Gsellman: Back to bullpen
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Gsellman will shift back to a bullpen role beginning Sunday, Anthony DiComo of MLB.com reports.

Gsellman wasn't able to provide much length after his shift to the rotation, completing more than two innings just once in four starts. He'll serve in a multi-inning role out of the bullpen, though he isn't likely to get high-leverage work. Gsellman has an ugly 7.84 ERA and 2.13 WHIP through 10.1 frames this season.

Mets' Robert Gsellman: Short outing
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Gsellman allowed four earned runs on four hits and four walks across 1.2 innings Thursday against the Yankees. He did not record a strikeout or factor into the decision.

Gsellman needed only 10 pitches to get through the first inning, but imploded in the following frame. He walked three batters and surrendered four hits prior to being pulled with the bases loaded having already permitted four runs. This was Gsellman's fourth start of the season, though he has worked more than two innings only once. He'll take his next turn through the rotation Tuesday against the Orioles.

Mets' Robert Gsellman: Picking up Thursday's start
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Manager Luis Rojas said Gsellman will start Thursday's game against the Yankees, Deesha Thosar of the New York Daily News reports.

David Peterson would have been available to start Thursday on five days' rest, but Rojas said the rookie would move to the bullpen for at least the next few days, allowing Gsellman to receive another turn through the rotation. In order to ensure his starting role becomes a permanent one, Gsellman will need to post a solid outing against the Yankees.

Mets' Robert Gsellman: Solid in abbreviated start
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Gsellman started and worked four innings but didn't factor into the decision Saturday in a 2-1 loss to the Yankees. He gave up a run on four hits while striking out four.

Gsellman was making his third straight turn through the rotation for the Mets, but since he's still in the process of building up after having worked exclusively out of the bullpen the past two seasons, he wasn't able to go very deep into the start. The right-hander was pulled after tossing a season-high 57 pitches, and he was generally solid over his four frames, with his lone mistake being the first-inning solo shot he surrendered to Luke Voit. The Mets have recently returned two other starters (Michael Wacha and David Peterson) from the injured list, so it's unclear if Gsellman will still have a spot in the rotation next week.

Mets' Robert Gsellman: Candidate to start Thursday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Gsellman is a candidate to start Thursday against the Marlins, Anthony DiComo of MLB.com reports.

Gsellman hasn't pitched since Aug. 17 due to postponements tied to the COVID-19 pandemic. If he does get the ball first Thursday, the right-hander likely won't pitch deep into the game as he's still building up to a starter's workload. Across three outings this season, Gsellman has struck out four batters and allowed four runs on eight hits and two walks across 4.2 innings.

Mets' Robert Gsellman: Quick exit from Monday's start
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Gsellman lasted only 1.2 innings during Monday's start against the Marlins, allowing one run on three hits and two walks. He struck out one.

The Mets ended up winning 11-4, but Gsellman had no part in the decision. The right-hander did get stretched out to 47 pitches (27 strikes), but if he can't improve his efficiency, it'll be a long time before he's ready to qualify for a win no matter how much run support he gets. Gsellman's next start is scheduled for Saturday at home against the Yankees, but expect another early exit.

Mets' Robert Gsellman: Next start coming Monday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Gsellman is slated to start Monday's game against the Marlins in Miami, Tim Healey of Newsday reports.

Gsellman was thrust into a starting role last week after injuries to Jacob deGrom (neck) and Michael Wacha (shoulder) along with Marcus Stroman's decision to opt out of the season put further strain on an already-thin Mets rotation. Since he was making his first MLB start since 2017, Gsellman was capped at two innings (33 pitches) in the start against Washington, during which he served up three runs on four hits. Despite the poor showing, Gsellman still seems to have greater short-term security in the rotation than the struggling Steven Matz, whom manager Luis Rojas wouldn't commit to giving another start. Gsellman will likely face limited pitch counts for at least his next two outings as he builds up to a starter's workload, so he probably won't warrant an immediate pickup outside of NL-only leagues.

Mets' Robert Gsellman: Gives up three runs in two innings
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Gsellman allowed three runs on four hits over two innings in a no-decision against the Nationals on Wednesday. He struck out one batter.

Juan Soto tagged Gsellman for a three-run homer in the first inning, though the Mets did even more damage against opposing starter Anibal Sanchez in the bottom of the frame. Gsellman was making his first start since 2017 and will have to build up on the job after missing the start of the season with a triceps injury, with the Mets down several pitchers in the starting rotation. He threw only 33 pitches Wednesday.

Mets' Robert Gsellman: Enters starting rotation
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Gsellman will start Wednesday against Washington and will be stretched out as a starter moving forward, Anthony DiComo of MLB.com reports.

The Mets needed another starter after Michael Wacha landed on the injured list with shoulder inflammation Sunday. Gsellman has 29 career big-league starts under his belt, though the last one of those came back in 2017. He has a lifetime 4.60 ERA in 156.2 innings as a starter, slightly worse than his 4.25 mark in 152.1 frames in relief. While the Mets will stretch him out going forward, it's unlikely that he'll be able to pitch particularly deep in Wednesday's contest, given that he threw just a single inning in his lone appearance this season after missing the start of the year with triceps tightness.

Mets' Robert Gsellman: Returns from injury
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Gsellman (triceps) was activated from the 10-day injured list Friday.

Gsellman had been on the shelf since developing triceps tightness in mid-July, but the issue evidently wasn't a particularly severe one. The Mets' closer situation is somewhat unclear due to Edwin Diaz's poor start, and Gsellman does have 14 career saves, but his career 4.44 ERA and 18.7 percent strikeout rate are hardly closer material, making him seemingly unlikely to move ahead of Seth Lugo, Dellin Betances or Jeurys Familia.

Mets' Robert Gsellman: Nearing return
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Gsellman (triceps) is nearing a return, Anthony DiComo of MLB.com reports.

He won't come off the injured list when eligible Thursday and has yet to throw live batting practice, but he will do so imminently. Look for him to join the Mets' bullpen in early August.

July 22, 2020 06:08 PM
Mets' Robert Gsellman: Officially placed on IL
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Gsellman (triceps) was placed on the 10-day injured list Wednesday, Anthony DiComo of MLB.com reports.

The move was anticipated after Gsellman was shut down from throwing last week with right triceps tightness. The issue doesn't sound too serious, but the team will choose to allow him time to recover rather than rushing him out to begin the season. Gsellman made 52 appearances for the Mets last year, posting a 4.66 ERA and 60:23 K:BB over 63.2 innings.

July 23, 2020 11:28 PM
Mets' Robert Gsellman: Likely headed to IL
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Gsellman (triceps) is expected to begin the season on the injured list, Anthony DiComo of MLB.com reports.

This news comes after Gsellman was shut down from throwing last week due to right triceps tightness. Fortunately, it doesn't sound like the issue is anything overly serious; the expectation is that the right-hander will be ready to go about a week into the season following a brief stay on the shelf. Once healthy, the 27-year-old should assume a prominent spot in the Mets bullpen.

Mets' Robert Gsellman: Dealing with triceps tightness
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Gsellman has been shut down from throwing off a mound for the past couple days due to right triceps tightness, Tim Britton of The Athletic reports.

The injury doesn't appear to be severe since the 27-year-old has continued playing catch, but it's still a troublesome development with less than a week until Opening Day. Gsellman posted a 4.66 ERA, 1.37 WHIP and 60:23 K:BB over 63.2 innings during 2019 before suffering a partially torn right triceps in August. It remains unclear if the current injury is related to the one suffered last year.

Mets' Robert Gsellman: Healthy to begin spring
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

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.

Mets' Robert Gsellman: Reaches deal with Mets
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

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.
