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.

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.

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.

Mets' Robert Gsellman: Could start in 2020
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

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.

Mets' Robert Gsellman: Won't return this weekend
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

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.

Mets' Robert Gsellman: Progressing in rehab
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

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.

Mets' Robert Gsellman: Tosses side session
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

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.

Mets' Robert Gsellman: Feels great after long toss
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

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.

Mets' Robert Gsellman: Keeps hope alive for 2019 return
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

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.

Mets' Robert Gsellman: Done for season
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

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.

Mets' Robert Gsellman: Hits IL with triceps injury
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

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.

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

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.

Mets' Robert Gsellman: Nabs wins in extras
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

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.

Mets' Robert Gsellman: Serves up walkoff homer
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

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.

Mets' Robert Gsellman: Rough stretch continues
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

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).
