The Call-Up: Robert Gsellman

1

Jeffrey Paternostro and Mike Gianella

Robert Gs... Gsell...Gonna pitch out the bullpen so it doesn't really matter.

The Situation: The Mets face what amounts to a do-or-die three-game set with St. Louis, the second wild card leaders, this week. One of those games will be started by Jacob deGrom. That is good. The other two are scheduled to be started by Jon Niese and Seth Lugo. And now that Steven Matz is headed to the disabled list with shoulder inflammation, it isn't a huge surprise that they called up their best upper-level starting pitching prospect to...uh...well...pitch out of the bullpen?

The Background: Gsellman was the Mets 13th-round pick in 2011 out of Westchester High School in Los Angeles. A multi-sport athlete, he was also only 17 when drafted and proceeded through the system slowly, spending a Summer at each of the organization's three short-season affiliates. He's been on prospect radars for a while but only cracked the Mets top ten for the first time this past offseason off a strong campaign between St. Lucie and Binghamton. Gsellman struggled to miss bats in his first taste of Double-A, but the addition of a slider this Spring has helped him find more success in the upper minors in 2016.

Not unlike Daniel Murphy, Neil Walker has made offensive gains in his walk year with the Mets. The Mets have another decision to make.

Justin Verlander makes Noah Syndergaard look positively mortal, Billy Hamilton destroys our preconceived ideas about speed, and Jean Segura gifts Orlando Arcia his first extra base in the majors.

The Weekend Takeaway
Equipped with Mjolnir, Thor is unbeatable. Without it, well, he might look something like Noah Syndergaard on the losing end of a 4-3 pitcher’s duel.

The Mets aren't getting the most out of an odd collection of position players.

The Mets get a power hitter, but might just be adding to the glut at a few well-covered positions.

The Mets ad-lib a loss, Dee Gordon says sorry, and Aroldis Chapman pitches for a new team.

The Thursday Takeaway
Jeurys Familia was not going to close on Thursday. Terry Collins said so the night before—no caveats or conditional statements, no probably won’t or isn’t expected to, just a straightforwardly simple declarative. Familia wasn’t going to close, and Addison Reed was. And that made sense, seeing as how Familia had pitched on two straight days, the second of which resulted in two runs that earned him his first blown save since May. Familia wasn’t going to close.

Michael Conforto returns to New York, Justin Smoak stays in Toronto, and Yuliesky Gurriel might be an odd fit in Houston.

When will the Mets recall Michael Conforto from the minors? The decision may be about more than short-term performance.

Despite turmoil, the Mets rotation has actually been better this year. It hasn't been easy.

Colon/Giolito is a dud, but the game is wildy satisfying nonetheless. Meanwhile, Glasnow debuts, Trout steals home, and the Cubs keep slouching toward San Diego.

The Thursday Takeaway
Every now and then, there is poetry in baseball. Often it involves Wilmer Flores.

Prospect Profile: Amed Rosario

0

Jessica Quiroli

Rosario, a 20-year-old Mets shortstop prospect, is stepping up in the spotlight.

Tampa, FL - New York Mets fans are weathering heavy storms and there seems to be no sign of them letting up.

In the midst of news that Jose Reyes was returning to the fold, after a charge of domestic violence while with the Colorado Rockies, the team’s pitching problems suddenly got worse. The team announced that Steven Matz and Noah Syndergaard have bone spurs, shuffling an already uncertain deck. Reyes' return certainly doesn’t quell the concern about the Mets' future. The Matz and Syndergaard news only added to the list of questions. The natural reaction for any team’s fans is to turn their hopeless gaze to the farm. And while there isn’t a ton of promise on the prospect front either, there are the glimmers, as there always are; those players in even the most tepid system that emerge in unexpected ways or rise to lofty expectations. File Amed Rosario under both categories.

Common people know what they want and deserve to get it good and hard.

There comes a time, generally every four years or so, when the average American comes to reflect on his or her government and conclude that he isn’t particularly well represented. He sees the institutional impediments to accountability: the electoral college, the political action committee, the gerrymandered district, the uncommitted delegate. He flips on the television and observes the wreckage of modern party factionalism, which at best results in gridlock and at worst a pendulum of overreaches and reversals that ruin the lives of invisible people. Then, to escape this, he switches over to the sports channel and learns that his baseball team has signed Jose Reyes.
