Bashlor was placed on the 10-day injured list with low back inflammation Friday.
Bashlor allowed one run on two hits and one walk over two-thirds of an inning Wednesday, and he'll now be sidelined at least 10 days with a back issue. With just over two weeks remaining in the regular season, it's unclear whether the right-hander will return to action in 2020, especially with the Pirates out of playoff contention. Left-hander Austin Davis was recalled to take Bashlor's place in the bullpen.
Bashlor was recalled by the Pirates on Tuesday.
Bashlor was picked up in a trade with the Mets in early August but had been at the Pirates' alternate training site. With a career 5.33 ERA in 54 big-league innings, he's best suited for low-leverage work. Cody Ponce was optioned in a corresponding move.
Bashlor was traded to the Pirates from the Mets for cash considerations Sunday.
The 27-year-old was designated for assignment by the Mets earlier in the week, and he'll now continue his career with the Pirates. Bashlor has yet to appear in a game in 2020, but he had a 5.33 ERA and 1.41 WHIP in 48 games with New York over the past two seasons.
Bashlor was designated for assignment by the Mets on Tuesday, Justin Toscano of The Bergen Record reports.
Bashlor will be removed from the Mets' 40-man roster just one day after he was recalled by the Mets. The right-hander didn't make any relief appearances while he was part of the major-league bullpen. Given his lack of productive experience in the big leagues, it's unclear whether he'll be able to find a spot in another major-league bullpen.
Bashlor was recalled by the Mets on Monday, Anthony DiComo of MLB.com reports.
Bashlor was left off the Mets' initial 30-man roster, but he'll take the place of Corey Oswalt in the bullpen after he was optioned after Sunday's contest. Bashlor made 24 appearances for the Mets last season, posting a 6.95 ERA and 1.73 WHIP with three blown saves over 22 innings. Given the right-hander's struggles in past major-league experiences, he's likely to pitch mainly in lower-leverage situations.
Bashlor was optioned to Triple-A Syracuse on Friday.
Bashlor was competing for a bullpen job in camp but wasn't necessarily a favorite to win one even before he posted an 11.57 ERA in 4.2 spring innings. In 22 big-league innings last season, he posted a 6.95 ERA and a 16.5 percent walk rate.
Bashlor has given up 11 hits including three home runs in 4.2 innings this spring, leading to an 11.57 ERA and 2.57 WHIP.
The 26-year-old came into camp hoping to win a spot in the big-league bullpen, but Bashlor's performance prior to the league shutdown seemed to be earning him a ticket back to Triple-A Syracuse instead. He'll likely provide the Mets with relief depth during the season.
Bashlor was recalled from Triple-A Syracuse on Sunday.
Bashlor struggled with a 7.16 ERA and 1.65 WHIP over 16.1 major-league innings this season, but he'll rejoin the Mets as rosters expand Sunday. The 26-year-old fared much better at Syracuse with a 3.41 ERA, 1.10 WHIP and 37:15 K:BB across 37 frames.
Bashlor was optioned to Triple-A Syracuse on Saturday.
Bashlor has failed to impress in 16.1 innings for the Mets this season, recording a 7.16 ERA and a 14:10 K:BB. Jacob Rhame returns from Syracuse to take his spot in the bullpen.
Bashlor was recalled from Triple-A Syracuse on Friday, Tim Healey of Newsday reports.
Bashlor has made 13 appearances for the Mets in 2019, posting a 5.40 ERA with 12 punchouts across 11.2 innings. Chris Mazza and Luis Guillorme were optioned to Triple-A in corresponding moves.
Bashlor was sent down to Triple-A Syracuse on Saturday.
The Mets shuffled things around in their bullpen, designating Hector Santiago for assignment, optioning Tim Peterson and returning Bashlor to the minors after acquiring Brooks Pounders via trade from Cleveland. Bashlor has struggled at both levels this season (6.14 ERA, 1.76 WHIP at Triple-A) and could be a DFA candidate the next time the Mets need a 40-man spot.
Bashlor was recalled from Triple-A Syracuse following Friday's game against the Cardinals, Anthony DiComo of MLB.com reports.
Bashlor was with the big club for Friday's games as the 26th man, but he'll remain with the team after Hector Santiago was designated for assignment. Bashlor owns a 5.40 ERA with 12 punchouts over 11.2 innings this season in the big leagues.
Bashlor was optioned to Triple-A Syracuse on Tuesday.
Bashlor spent just shy of a month on the big-league roster but didn't particularly impress, posting a 5.40 ERA and 1.46 WHIP in 11.2 innings of work. Jeff McNeil (hamstring) returned from the injured list in a corresponding move.
Bashlor (0-3) allowed a run on two hits and a walk in one-third of an inning to take the loss in a loss to the Diamondbacks on Saturday.
Bashlor came on in the 11th inning and promptly imploded for his second loss in as many appearances. He owns a 5.56 ERA and 1.32 WHIP in 12 appearances this season, and he's also blown three saves.
Bashlor (0-2) gave up three runs on three hits in a third of an inning to blow the save and take the loss Monday as the Mets fell to the Dodgers.
After J.D. Davis gave the Mets a 3-2 lead in the fifth inning, Bashlor replaced Jacob deGrom to begin the sixth and promptly made a mess of things, giving up a solo homer to Chris Taylor and then two singles before he got the hook and watched Daniel Zamora pour more gas on the fire. Bashlor's 12:5 K:BB through 11 innings this season isn't bad, but his 4.91 ERA and three blown saves in 11 appearances will likely keep him far away from high-leverage work.
Bashlor was called up by the Mets on Sunday.
Bashlor threw 32 innings in his debut season last year, recording a passable 4.22 ERA but a poor 5.44 FIP. The Mets brought in two fresh arms after Saturday's 18-inning contest, with Ryan O'Rourke and Chris Flexen going out the door and Bashlor and Peterson coming in.
Bashlor was optioned to Triple-A Syracuse on Friday.
Bashlor spent the second half of last season in the majors and compiled a 4.22 ERA, 1.19 WHIP and 25:12 K:BB across 32 innings. The 25-year-old allowed six runs on 15 hits over 10.2 spring innings as he returns to Triple-A to begin the season.
Bashlor was called up from Triple-A Las Vegas on Sunday, Matt Ehalt of The Bergen Record reports.
Ehalt mentioned Craig Kimbrel as a comparison for Bashlor, and while it's understood that he won't be quite that good, that provides an idea of what type of pitcher Bashlor could be, given his size (6-foot, 195 pounds), handedness (righty) and stuff. He posted a 2.63 ERA, a 1.08 WHIP and a 30:12 K:BB in 24 innings at Triple-A.
The Mets optioned Bashlor to their minor-league camp Wednesday, Anthony DiComo of MLB.com reports.
New York protected the 24-year-old from the Rule 5 draft this winter after he racked up 84 strikeouts and posted a 3.44 ERA and 1.31 WHIP in 49.2 innings between High-A St. Lucie and Double-A Binghamton. Surprisingly, Bashlor's best work came in the Eastern League, with the right-hander tossing 14.2 scoreless frames and notching a 23:4 K:BB. Bashlor's strong finish to the past season could result in only a brief stay at Binghamton if the Mets aren't ready to test him at Triple-A Las Vegas to begin the upcoming campaign.
