Robert Gsellman likely to start 2017 in Mets’ rotation

Robert Gsellman likely to start 2017 in Mets’ rotation

Gsellman will round out what could be the best starting five in baseball. With the New York Mets’ one-through-four starting pitchers in the rotation all but set coming into the 2017 season, many penciled in Zack Wheeler as the fifth starter of what could be a historic starting five. But as Mike Puma and others who cover the Mets have noted, it would be a major surprise if the fifth starter is anyone other than Robert Gsellman. After being called up due to Steven Matz hitting the disabled list in August of last year, Gsellman proceeded to take over for an injured Jon Niese and never...

Meet the Mets It was a tough day at the ballpark for Mets pitchers, and they fell to the Marlins 15-9 in a spring training game. Steven Matz was hit hard by the Marlins, and he lamented the lack of command of his fastball as the reason for his poor start. Zack Wheeler also had a tough outing ,which might have pushed him down the depth chart as the battle for the fifth rotation spot continues. Even if Wheeler does not make the rotation, the bullpen is not an ideal fit for him. Seth Lugo got the start in the finals...

Can Robert Gsellman repeat his 2016 performance with the Mets in 2017?

Can Robert Gsellman repeat his 2016 performance with the Mets in 2017?

Gsellman can make his claim as another arm the current Mets have developed with a strong 2017 campaign. Since the debut of Matt Harvey in the middle of 2012, the Mets have had quality arms debut basically every year. Some have been top prospects, like Zack Wheeler and Steven Matz, and some have come out of obscurity, like Jacob deGrom. Robert Gsellman is closer to the latter than he is the former, hair notwithstanding. The former 13th-round pick was a godsend for the Mets in 2016. With several of the Mets’ starting pitchers injured, Gsellman provided quality innings late in the season....
