Mets' Paul Sewald: Headed to majors
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Sewald had his contract selected from Triple-A Syracuse on Friday.

The 29-year-old returns to the major-league bullpen after being designated for assignment in late May but remaining with the organization. In 19 appearances with Triple-A Syracuse this year, Sewald carries an ERA of 3.35 with a 52:15 K:BB over 51 innings. Drew Gagnon was optioned to Triple-A and Tim Peterson was designated for assignment in corresponding moves.

Mets' Paul Sewald: Heading to Triple-A
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Sewald cleared waivers and was outrighted to Triple-A Syracuse on Sunday, Anthony DiComo of MLB.com reports.

Sewald was designated for assignment by the Mets on Wednesday but will remain in the organization after going unclaimed on waivers. The 29-year-old has a 4.82 ERA, 1.76 WHIP and 12:5 K:BB through 18.2 innings with Syracuse this season.

Mets' Paul Sewald: Designated for assigment
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Sewald was designated for assignment on Wednesday, Mike Mazzeo of Yahoo Sports reports.

The Mets needed to clear a 40-man spot for Rajai Davis to add outfield depth on the big-league roster, and Sewald was the casualty. He will serve as organizational bullpen depth if he passes through waivers.

Mets' Paul Sewald: Sent back to minors
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Sewald was optioned to Triple-A Syracuse on Saturday, Matt Ehalt of Yahoo! Sports reports.

Sewald's latest stay on the big-league roster lasted just a single day. He gave up one run in two innings of relief work Friday against the Marlins. Steven Matz (forearm) returns from the injured list in a corresponding move.

Mets' Paul Sewald: Rejoins major-league club
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Sewald was called up from Triple-A Syracuse on Friday.

Sewald had a week-long stint in the majors earlier this season and gave up two runs over five innings. The 28-year-old struggled last season with a 6.07 ERA, 1.51 WHIP and 58:23 K:BB for the Mets.

Mets' Paul Sewald: Sent to Triple-A
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Sewald was optioned to Triple-A Syracuse on Monday.

Sewald allowed two runs and struck out one over five innings since his promotion to the big leagues April 14, but he'll head back to Syracuse, where he'll likely see more opportunities. Todd Frazier was activated from the 10-day injured list and Luis Guillorme was recalled from Triple-A in corresponding moves.

Mets' Paul Sewald: Moves up to big leagues
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

The Mets recalled Sewald from Triple-A Syracuse on Sunday, Mike Puma of the New York Post reports.

Sewald will provide an fresh arm out of the bullpen in place of long man Corey Oswalt, who was optioned to Syracuse after covering 3.2 innings in relief in Saturday's 11-7 loss to the Braves. A veteran of 103 career appearances in the majors, Sewald has supplied a 5.25 ERA and 9.3 K/9 across 121.2 innings.

Mets' Paul Sewald: Shifts to minors camp
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

The Mets optioned Sewald to their minor-league camp Tuesday, Matt Ehalt of The Bergen Record reports.

Sewald and Jacob Rhame were both sent down as the Mets narrowed down the competition for the remaining opening in the bullpen to Tyler Bashlor, Kyle Dowdy and Hector Santiago. The 28-year-old Sewald did little to distinguish himself in 46 appearances in the big leagues in 2018, accruing a 6.07 ERA and 1.51 WHIP across 56.1 frames.

Mets' Paul Sewald: Grabs second save
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Sewald didn't allow a baserunner and struck out one to earn the save Thursday against the Nationals.

Sewald entered the game in the 12th inning and needed only 11 pitches to secure the win after Robert Gsellman blew a save chance earlier in the game. It was only his second save of the season, and he isn't likely to pick up many -- if any -- more opportunities before season's end.

Mets' Paul Sewald: Picks up first save
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Sewald recorded the final two outs of the ninth inning Wednesday, one via strikeout, to pick up his first career save in a 5-3 win over the Giants.

The Mets' closer situation remains a mess, as four different pitchers (Sewald, Robert Gsellman, Seth Lugo and Jerry Blevins) have notched the team's last four saves. Sewald's 4.68 ERA and 1.4 HR/9 would make him a volatile ninth-inning option even if the team did commit to him in the role, but given the competition and the circumstances, Wednesday's save chance could easily end up being his last of the year despite the successful conversion.

Mets' Paul Sewald: Back up with Mets
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Sewald was called up to the majors Saturday, Anthony DiComo of MLB.com reports.

Sewald has a 5.05 ERA in 41 innings for the Mets this season. His 24.1 percent strikeout rate and 7.5 percent walk rate are each solid, but he barely gets any grounders (27.1 percent). He'll fill the bullpen spot vacated by Jeurys Familia, who was traded to the Athletics on Saturday.

July 10, 2018 06:12 PM
Mets' Paul Sewald: Headed back to Triple-A
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Sewald was optioned to Triple-A Las Vegas on Tuesday.

Sewald was up for just four days, allowing two runs in two innings. He'll make way for Drew Gagnon, who was called up to make his major-league debut against the Phillies.

July 6, 2018 02:40 PM
Mets' Paul Sewald: Called up from Las Vegas
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Sewald was recalled from Triple-A Las Vegas on Friday.

Sewald has appeared in 26 games for the Mets this year, posting a 4.85 ERA and 1.26 WHIP. He will likely be deployed in a middle-relief role while with the team. In a corresponding move, Jerry Blevins was put on the bereavement list.

June 22, 2018 03:48 PM
Mets' Paul Sewald: Sent to minors
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Sewald was optioned to Triple-A Las Vegas on Thursday, Anthony DiComo of MLB.com reports.

Sewald allowed a run on a walk and a single in Thursday's loss to the Rockies, raising his season ERA to 4.85 and prompting the Mets to send him to the minors to work through some of his struggles. Given the injuries and ineffectiveness hampering the team's bullpen, Sewald figures to rejoin the big-league team once he's able to figure some things out. A corresponding roster move will be announced prior to Friday's series opener against the Dodgers.

Mets' Paul Sewald: Ineffective again Friday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Sewald (0-4) took the loss against the Cubs on Friday, allowing four runs on five hits over 1.2 innings while striking out two.

The big blow off Sewald was a three-run jack by Kyle Schwarber in the eighth inning, the fourth homer the right-hander has served up this season -- all of which have come since the beginning of May. Sewald has been scored upon in three straight appearances, pushing his ERA up to 4.73, but his 1.18 WHIP and 33:5 K:BB are actually solid. Given the injuries and ineffectiveness hampering the Mets bullpen and pitching staff, the team needs the 28-year-old to figure out how to keep the ball in the park and give it reliable middle-relief innings, but until he does, his fantasy value is minimal even in deep NL-only formats.

Mets' Paul Sewald: Takes loss Wednesday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Sewald (0-2) took the loss Wednesday against the Braves, giving up three runs on five hits over three innings of relief while striking out two.

The right-hander entered the game in the fifth inning of a 0-0 tie after Jacob deGrom exited with a hyperextended elbow, but Sewald wasn't able to have the same kind of success. He'd allowed only three earned runs in 13.2 innings prior to Wednesday, and Sewald's 19:2 K:BB on the season remains strong, so he should continue to have fantasy value in deep leagues as a long reliever capable of providing solid ratios and strikeouts.

Mets' Paul Sewald: Secures bullpen job
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Sewald earned a spot in the Mets' Opening Day bullpen, Kristie Ackert of the New York Daily News reports.

Sewald is likely slated for middle-innings work with AJ Ramos, Anthony Swarzak and Jerry Blevins viewed as the primary members of the bridge to closer Jeurys Familia. That assignment won't translate to many holds for Sewald, rendering him a rather unappealing commodity even in NL-only settings.

Mets' Paul Sewald: Records one out Thursday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Sewald allowed three unearned runs on two hits in just a third of an inning during Thursday's loss to the Cubs.

Sewald has only pitched in four of the last 14 games, and has an ERA of 7.45 in his last 10 appearances. Unsurprisingly, he is near the back of the bullpen and it's unlikely that he will see many opportunities in high-leverage situations for the remainder of the season.

June 28, 2017 11:28 AM
Mets' Paul Sewald: Scoreless relief outing Tuesday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Sewald provided three innings of scoreless relief in Tuesday's loss to the Marlins, giving up two hits and striking out three.

The 27-year-old rookie has been a little too prone to blowups to be a reliable fantasy asset, but Sewald's 39:9 K:BB in 32.1 innings is strong and his 3.01 FIP and 3.68 xFIP suggest his 4.45 ERA is due to more than a little bad luck. Expect him to continue working in low-leverage situations moving forward.

May 26, 2017 11:20 AM
Mets' Paul Sewald: Fans four in strong relief effort
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Sewald gave up a hit and a walk while striking out four over three scoreless innings of relief in Thursday's loss to the Padres.

He replaced an ineffective Rafael Montero in the fourth inning and gave the Mets a chance to mount a comeback, although they'd eventually fall short in a 4-3 loss. Sewald now has a 2.08 ERA, 1.21 WHIP and 20:4 K:BB in his first 17.1 big-league frames, helping to solidify the middle innings for a battered pitching staff, but his role won't afford the 27-year-old much fantasy upside as he has no wins or saves and just one hold in 12 appearances.
