Meet the Mets In the first game of a crucial 9 game stretch at home, the Mets topped the Cleveland Indians 9-2. Steven Matz pitched very well, going 6.1 innings, allowing two runs (one earned) while the bullpen did the rest of the work. Michael Conforto gave the Mets the lead in the bottom of the sixth inning with a two-run homer before the Mets’ offense broke the game open in the 7th.

Mets recall Rajai Davis, option Walker Lockett, and designate Brooks Pounders

Mets recall Rajai Davis, option Walker Lockett, and designate Brooks Pounders

Photo by Jim McIsaac/ With this roster move, the Mets will roll with a seven-man bullpen. The Mets have selected the contract of Rajai Davis, the team announced this afternoon. He is at Citi Field and will be available for tonight’s game—thanks, once again, to Uber. In a corresponding move, the Mets have optioned Walker Lockett back to Triple-A Syracuse. Lockett was recalled two days ago when Robert Gsellman was placed on the injured list, but given the news that Gsellman will be sidelined long-term, the Mets have opted to go with a seven-man bullpen and a deeper bench. To make room...

Mets say Robert Gsellman has partial lat tear, likely done for season

Mets say Robert Gsellman has partial lat tear, likely done for season

Andy Marlin-USA TODAY Sports A frustrating 2019 season ends due to injury. The Mets placed Robert Gsellman on the injured list over the weekend due to pain in his right triceps, and the team provided an unfortunate update on that front today. The righty reliever was diagnosed with a partial lat tear, and while Mickey Callaway and company had been hoping that his trip to the IL would be a short one, this news seemingly indicates that his season is over. It’s a tough blow for a Mets bullpen that is still struggling to find consistency as the team fights for a wild card spot. And it’s...

Robert Gsellman likely out for season with lat tear

Performance was poor. Leads were frequently blown. Ineffectiveness reigned. The Mets bullpen was a walking hindrance, with one caveat. The group manager Mickey Callaway hoped to be calling upon wasn’t whole. Even with Edwin Diaz’s continued issues, the relievers have gotten better results since the All-Star break, aided by the returns of southpaws Justin Wilson...

Player Meter: Pitchers, August 12-18

Photo by Ed Zurga/ A quick review of how the Mets’ pitchers fared over the past week. Aside from one mediocre start from Zack Wheeler, the Mets’ starting rotation had a solid week, posting a 3.67 ERA as a group. The bullpen, bolstered by some extra depth, has mostly held it together too. However, with Robert Gsellman hitting the injured list with triceps tightness, that is one fewer arm Mickey Callaway can rely upon in high leverage situations. The usually reliable Seth Lugo had one meltdown this week and Drew Gagnon had a nightmarish outing that turned a blowout into a close game. ...

Mets send Robert Gsellman to injured list

KANSAS CITY, Mo. — Robert Gsellman’s barking right triceps were still an issue Saturday, leaving the Mets with little choice but to place him on the injured list. Walker Lockett arrived from Triple-A Syracuse before the Mets faced the Royals at Kauffman Stadium and was added to the roster as Gsellman’s replacement. Gsellman’s IL stint...

Final score: Nationals 7, Mets 4—The winning streak comes to an end

Photo by Al Bello/ The Mets’ winning streak came to an end in the series finale. The Mets had their winning streak snapped this afternoon as the Nationals defeated them 7-4. After a sloppy first inning that saw Jacob deGrom give up three unearned runs, the Mets worked their way back to tie the game at three in the bottom of the second. But Robert Gsellman gave up two runs in the top of the seventh to put the Nationals back in the lead, and the Mets answered with one run in the bottom of that inning. Edwin Diaz made things worse by giving up a two-run home run to Victor Robles in the...
