Mets' Paul Sewald: Optioned off roster
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Sewald was optioned to the Mets' alternate training site Tuesday, Tim Britton of The Athletic reports.

Sewald has made five appearances out of the pen for the Mets this season, but things haven't gone at all well for him. He's allowed nine runs on 12 hits in six innings, walking four batters while striking out just two.

Mets' Paul Sewald: Another shaky outing
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Sewald allowed two hits and a walk in 1.2 scoreless innings during Tuesday's loss to the Nationals.

The right-hander entered the game in the fourth inning after a poor performance from Steven Matz, but Sewald ran into trouble of his own in the fifth, loading the bases with two outs before getting bailed out by Jeurys Familia. Sewald has a 5.06 ERA, 1.50 WHIP and 2:2 K:BB through 5.1 innings, and his low-leverage role offers little fantasy appeal.

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

Sewald was optioned to Triple-A Syracuse on Thursday.

Sewald pitched well during his five spring appearances, compiling a 1.69 ERA and 0.75 WHIP across 5.1 innings, though he'll still head to the minors to begin the season. He figures to join the big-league club in a middle-relief role at some point after posting a 4.58 ERA and 1.07 WHIP across 19.2 innings with the Mets in 2019.

Mets' Paul Sewald: Having solid spring
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Sewald has posted a 1.69 ERA, 0.75 WHIP and 5:1 K:BB through 5.1 innings this spring.

The right-hander is coming off an encouraging big-league campaign, as Sewald compiled a 22:3 K:BB through 19.2 innings with a FIP more than a full run below his 4.58 ERA. His spot in the Mets' bullpen seems secure for the regular season, but he's unlikely to see much high-leverage work -- Sewald recorded only one save and zero holds in 2019.

Mets' Paul Sewald: Falls into first save
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Sewald struck out two in a perfect eighth inning Thursday to record his first save of the season in a win over Cleveland.

The ninth inning never happened due to rain, giving Sewald his third career save and allowing manager Mickey Callaway to avoid having to decide whether to use Edwin Diaz or Seth Lugo as his closer for the evening. Sewald has apparently worked his way into the Mets' setup crew with a 5:0 K:BB in two scoreless innings since rejoining the bullpen.

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.

May 17, 2019 05:44 PM
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.

April 23, 2019 12:16 AM
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.

June 2, 2018 01:36 PM
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.
