Oswalt (3-3) went four innings and didn't factor into the decision in Friday's loss to the Marlins. He gave up one run on four hits and three walks while striking out four.
Oswalt, who hasn't made it past the fifth inning in any of his last four starts, had already thrown 85 pitches through four innings when manager Mickey Callaway decided to pull him. He kept the Mets in the game, however, and will likely enter next season competing for a spot in the bullpen.
Oswalt (3-3) took the loss Saturday against the Nationals, going five innings while allowing two runs on four hits and two walks. He struck out four.
The scoreboard damage came from Trea Turner's two-run homer in the third. The righty's next start lines up against the Marlins on Friday, and not even this typically favorable streamer opponent should prompt many fantasy players to take the chance, considering Oswalt's 6.08 ERA and meager 6.1 K/9 on the year.
Oswalt will take the hill for Saturday's game against Washington, Mike Puma of the New York Post reports.
Manager Mickey Callaway confirmed that the organization will be shutting Zack Wheeler down for the rest of the season due to an innings restriction, which pushes Oswalt back in the rotation for a couple more starts. Following Saturday's start, he is tentatively lined up to pitch against Miami in the final series of the 2018 campaign. In 15 appearances with the Mets (10 starts), Oswalt has logged a 6.31 ERA and 1.37 WHIP.
Oswalt allowed an unearned run on three hits and one walk while striking out three across 2.2 innings Saturday against the Red Sox. He didn't factor into the decision.
Oswalt joined the rotation for a spot start following the team's doubleheader against the Marlins on Thursday. The right-hander was pulled after throwing 61 pitches, 38 of which went for strikes. He allowed an RBI-single to Xander Bogaerts in the first inning, though the run was unearned thanks to an error from Dominic Smith earlier in the inning. Oswalt now owns an unsightly 6.31 ERA, 1.37 WHIP and 37:15 K:BB across 55.2 innings this season. He figures to transition back to a relief role for the remainder of the season.
Oswalt allowed two runs on five hits and one walk while striking out four over three innings Sunday against the Phillies. He didn't factor into the decision.
Oswalt was lifted from the game after tossing 40 of 59 pitches for strikes. He gave up a two-run home run in the first inning to Rhys Hoskins, but he managed to settle down for two shutout innings before exiting. Oswalt was making a spot start after the intended starter, Jacob deGrom, was scratched due to rain. Oswalt owns a 6.62 ERA with 34 strikeouts through 53 innings this season, and he figures to pitch out of the bullpen moving forward.
