Sep. 28 8:37 AM PT9:37 AM MT10:37 AM CT11:37 AM ET11:37 ET15:37 GMT23:37 8:37 AM MST10:37 AM EST11:07 AM VEN19:37 UAE10:37 AM CT-Robert Gsellman improved to 8-7, allowing one run on six hits and one walk in 6.0 innings, as the New York Mets defeated the Atlanta Braves 7-1 on Wednesday. Gsellman struck out four, ending the game with a 5.19 ERA and 1.50 WHIP on the season.
Analysis: The 24-year-old capped his inconsistent rookie season by beating Atlanta for the fourth time, twice in the past 11 days. It's unclear whether he's done enough to earn a spot in New York's rotation next season.
Sep. 22 7:51 PM PT8:51 PM MT9:51 PM CT10:51 PM ET22:51 ET2:51 GMT10:51 7:51 PM MST9:51 PM EST10:21 PM VEN6:51 UAE (+1)9:51 PM CT-Robert Gsellman allowed six runs - five earned - on four hits and three walks in 5.0 innings as the New York Mets defeated the Washington Nationals 7-6 on Friday. Gsellman struck out four, ending the game with a 5.38 ERA and 1.52 WHIP on the season.
Analysis: Gsellman moved up a day to pitch in place of ace Jacob deGrom, who was moved back in the rotation until Sunday because of a stomach illness this week.
Sep. 17 6:47 PM PT7:47 PM MT8:47 PM CT9:47 PM ET21:47 ET1:47 GMT9:47 6:47 PM MST8:47 PM EST9:17 PM VEN5:47 UAE (+1)8:47 PM CT-Robert Gsellman improved to 7-7, allowing one run - zero earned - on three hits in 7.0 innings, as the New York Mets defeated the Atlanta Braves 5-1 on Sunday. Gsellman struck out three, ending the game with a 5.22 ERA and 1.53 WHIP on the season.
Analysis: Gsellman scattered three hits and struck out three for his best outing since June 10, when he pitched 6 2/3 scoreless innings to beat Atlanta. It marked the third time this year and first since May 29 that he lasted seven innings.
Sep. 13 9:56 PM PT10:56 PM MT11:56 PM CT12:56 AM ET0:56 ET4:56 GMT12:56 9:56 PM MST11:56 PM EST12:26 AM VEN8:56 UAE11:56 PM CT-Robert Gsellman fell to 6-7, allowing four runs on five hits and five walks in 4.0 innings, as the New York Mets lost to the Chicago Cubs 8-3 on Tuesday. Gsellman struck out four, ending the game with a 5.58 ERA and 1.60 WHIP on the season.
Analysis: Gsellman had held the lowly Phillies to two earned runs across six innings to win his previous start, but his control was seriously lacking in this one. The 24-year-old has delivered mixed results since returning from a DL stint in mid-August, posting a decent 3.86 ERA but a shakier 1.56 WHIP while winning just one of his five outings.
Sep. 7 8:41 AM PT9:41 AM MT10:41 AM CT11:41 AM ET11:41 ET15:41 GMT23:41 8:41 AM MST10:41 AM EST11:11 AM VEN19:41 UAE10:41 AM CT-Robert Gsellman improved to 6-6, allowing three runs - two earned - on five hits and one walk in 6.0 innings, as the New York Mets defeated the Philadelphia Phillies 6-3 on Wednesday. Gsellman struck out four, ending the game with a 5.44 ERA and 1.57 WHIP on the season.
Analysis: It may have been rain-shortened, but it was Gsellman's first career complete game. He has a 4.43 ERA on the road - three runs lower than his road ERA.
Aug. 26 5:33 PM PT6:33 PM MT7:33 PM CT8:33 PM ET20:33 ET0:33 GMT8:33 5:33 PM MST7:33 PM EST8:03 PM VEN4:33 UAE (+1)7:33 PM CT-Robert Gsellman fell to 5-6, allowing six runs - two earned - on nine hits and two walks in 4.0 innings, as the New York Mets lost to the Washington Nationals 9-4 on Saturday. Gsellman struck out one, ending the game with a 5.60 ERA and 1.60 WHIP on the season.
Analysis: Each of the four runs Gsellman permitted in the first inning were deemed unearned due to an error he committed, but his performance still wasn't impressive. The right-hander had been solid in his first two starts back from a hamstring injury, giving up a total of three earned runs over 11 2/3 innings in a pair of no-decisions.
Aug. 21 8:24 PM PT9:24 PM MT10:24 PM CT11:24 PM ET23:24 ET3:24 GMT11:24 8:24 PM MST10:24 PM EST10:54 PM VEN7:24 UAE (+1)10:24 PM CT-Robert Gsellman allowed one run on five hits and one walk in 6.1 innings as the New York Mets lost to the Arizona Diamondbacks 3-2 on Monday. Gsellman struck out three, ending the game with a 5.65 ERA and 1.55 WHIP on the season.
Analysis: After turning in a decent outing against the Yankees last Wednesday in his first start off the DL, Gsellman delivered one of the best performances of his somewhat disappointing season. He'll still be a tough fantasy call when he faces the Nationals in Washington on Saturday, as he's recorded a 7.85 ERA and 1.74 WHIP on the road.
Aug. 17 9:10 AM PT10:10 AM MT11:10 AM CT12:10 PM ET12:10 ET16:10 GMT0:10 9:10 AM MST11:10 AM EST11:40 AM VEN20:10 UAE11:10 AM CT-Robert Gsellman allowed three runs - two earned - on four hits and three walks in 5.1 innings as the New York Mets lost to the New York Yankees 5-3 on Wednesday. Gsellman struck out two, ending the game with a 5.98 ERA and 1.60 WHIP on the season.
Analysis: This was Gsellman's first start since June 27 after coming off the DL, and he now has a 9.68 ERA over his last four big-league outings. He was fairly pleased with this one, though. 'I thought it was a solid outing,'' Gsellman said. ''Kept the ball down, was making pitches.''
June 27 5:39 PM PT6:39 PM MT7:39 PM CT8:39 PM ET20:39 ET0:39 GMT8:39 5:39 PM MST7:39 PM EST8:09 PM VEN4:39 UAE (+1)7:39 PM CT-Gsellman (left hamstring strain) threw six scoreless innings Friday in his fourth rehab start for Double-A Binghamton.
Analysis: Gsellman threw 83 pitches and was significantly better than his previous start, when he was hit hard and lasted only 2 2/3 innings. The right-hander could be back with the Mets some time next week.
June 21 8:06 AM PT9:06 AM MT10:06 AM CT11:06 AM ET11:06 ET15:06 GMT23:06 8:06 AM MST10:06 AM EST10:36 AM VEN19:06 UAE10:06 AM CT-Robert Gsellman fell to 5-5, allowing eight runs - seven earned - on nine hits and three walks in 4.1 innings, as the New York Mets lost to the Los Angeles Dodgers 12-0 on Tuesday. Gsellman struck out two, ending the game with a 6.04 ERA and 1.62 WHIP on the season.
Analysis: Gsellman appeared to have turned things around when he won three consecutive starts from May 29-June 10, but he's been rocked for 14 earned runs and 20 hits over 9 1/3 innings in losing his last two. The erratic right-hander next faces the Marlins on the road on Tuesday. He's 1-1 with a 6.14 ERA in three previous 2017 meetings with Miami.
June 15 7:35 PM PT8:35 PM MT9:35 PM CT10:35 PM ET22:35 ET2:35 GMT10:35 7:35 PM MST9:35 PM EST10:05 PM VEN6:35 UAE (+1)9:35 PM CT-Robert Gsellman fell to 5-4, allowing seven runs on 11 hits and two walks in 5.0 innings, as the New York Mets lost to the Washington Nationals 8-3 on Thursday. Gsellman struck out three, ending the game with a 5.50 ERA and 1.54 WHIP on the season.
June 10 2:12 PM PT3:12 PM MT4:12 PM CT5:12 PM ET17:12 ET21:12 GMT5:12 2:12 PM MST4:12 PM EST4:42 PM VEN1:12 UAE (+1)4:12 PM CT-Robert Gsellman improved to 5-3, allowing three hits and two walks over 6.2 scoreless innings, as the New York Mets defeated the Atlanta Braves 6-1 on Saturday. Gsellman struck out four, ending the game with a 4.95 ERA and 1.46 WHIP on the season.
Analysis: Gsellman has a 1.42 ERA and 1.00 WHIP in winning his last three starts. He'll make his first start of the season against the Nationals on Thursday, after going 1-0 with a 0.77 ERA and 1.29 WHIP in two starts against them in 2016.
June 4 9:19 PM PT10:19 PM MT11:19 PM CT12:19 AM ET0:19 ET4:19 GMT12:19 9:19 PM MST11:19 PM EST11:49 PM VEN8:19 UAE11:19 PM CT-Robert Gsellman improved to 4-3, allowing two runs on seven hits and two walks in 5.1 innings, as the New York Mets defeated the Pittsburgh Pirates 4-2 on Saturday. Gsellman struck out six, ending the game with a 5.53 ERA and 1.54 WHIP on the season.
Analysis: Gsellman may still be the top candidate to get bounced from the rotation when Steven Matz and Seth Lugo return from injuries next weekend, but he's a late bid to keep his spot. The 23-year-old held the Brewers to one earned run and three hits over seven sharp innings to also win his previous start.
May 30 10:04 AM PT11:04 AM MT12:04 PM CT1:04 PM ET13:04 ET17:04 GMT1:04 10:04 AM MST12:04 PM EST12:34 PM VEN21:04 UAE12:04 PM CT-Robert Gsellman improved to 3-3, allowing two runs - one earned - on three hits and two walks in 7.0 innings, as the New York Mets defeated the Milwaukee Brewers 4-2 on Monday. Gsellman struck out five, ending the game with a 5.75 ERA and 1.53 WHIP on the season.
Analysis: Long before the first pitch, general manager Sandy Alderson said Gsellman probably is headed back into a struggling bullpen when injured starters Steven Matz and Seth Lugo come off the disabled list - likely after one more minor league rehab outing apiece. ''I just want to pitch,'' Gsellman said. ''They haven't told me anything. ... I enjoy pitching so much that I really don't care.''
May 25 8:21 AM PT9:21 AM MT10:21 AM CT11:21 AM ET11:21 ET15:21 GMT23:21 8:21 AM MST10:21 AM EST10:51 AM VEN19:21 UAE10:21 AM CT-Robert Gsellman allowed three runs on six hits and one walk in 6.0 innings as the New York Mets lost to the San Diego Padres 6-5 on Wednesday. Gsellman struck out three, ending the game with a 6.45 ERA and 1.66 WHIP on the season.
Analysis: The scuffling right-hander had his turn skipped last weekend and had come out of the bullpen in his past two appearances. ''This kid has really been struggling. At times, you want him to leave with a good feeling,'' manager Terry Collins said. ''We just said, `Hey look, he did exactly what we were hoping he'd do.'''
May 17 5:13 PM PT6:13 PM MT7:13 PM CT8:13 PM ET20:13 ET0:13 GMT8:13 5:13 PM MST7:13 PM EST7:43 PM VEN4:13 UAE (+1)7:13 PM CT-Robert Gsellman blew his first save, allowing one run on one hit and one walk in 1.0 inning, as the New York Mets lost to the Arizona Diamondbacks 5-4 on Wednesday. Gsellman struck out one, ending the game with a 7.12 ERA and 1.80 WHIP on the season.
May 16 8:34 PM PT9:34 PM MT10:34 PM CT11:34 PM ET23:34 ET3:34 GMT11:34 8:34 PM MST10:34 PM EST11:04 PM VEN7:34 UAE (+1)10:34 PM CT-The Mets will skip the struggling Gsellman's next turn in the rotation.
Analysis: With an off day on Thursday, the Mets can start Jacob de Grom on regular rest and have him take Gsellman's scheduled assignment Friday against the Angels. Gsellman has posted a 7.27 ERA over six starts and hasn't pitched beyond five innings in any of his last four appearances.
May 13 8:26 PM PT9:26 PM MT10:26 PM CT11:26 PM ET23:26 ET3:26 GMT11:26 8:26 PM MST10:26 PM EST10:56 PM VEN7:26 UAE (+1)10:26 PM CT-Robert Gsellman fell to 2-3, allowing six runs - five earned - on nine hits and three walks in 4.0 innings, as the New York Mets lost to the Milwaukee Brewers 11-4 on Saturday. Gsellman struck out three, ending the game with a 7.07 ERA and 1.79 WHIP on the season.
May 7 9:13 AM PT10:13 AM MT11:13 AM CT12:13 PM ET12:13 ET16:13 GMT0:13 9:13 AM MST11:13 AM EST11:43 AM VEN20:13 UAE11:13 AM CT-Gsellman improved to 2-2, allowing three runs on eight hits in 5.0 innings, as the New York Mets defeated the Miami Marlins 11-3 on Saturday.
Analysis: Gsellman struck out two, ending the game with a 6.54 ERA and 1.64 WHIP on the season.
May 2 8:13 AM PT9:13 AM MT10:13 AM CT11:13 AM ET11:13 ET15:13 GMT23:13 8:13 AM MST10:13 AM EST10:43 AM VEN19:13 UAE10:13 AM CT-Robert Gsellman improved to 1-2, allowing five runs on six hits and one walk in 5.0 innings, as the New York Mets defeated the Atlanta Braves 7-5 on Monday. Gsellman did not strike out a batter, ending the game with a 6.75 ERA and 1.65 WHIP on the season.
Analysis: Gsellman benefited from a strong offensive output but delivered yet another uninspiring performance. The right-hander brings a 7.01 ERA through five starts into Saturday's matchup with Miami, a team he's faced twice already this season. Gsellman struck out 12 over 9 2/3 innings in those outings, but was reached for 11 runs - seven of which were earned.
Apr. 14 8:57 AM PT9:57 AM MT10:57 AM CT11:57 AM ET11:57 ET15:57 GMT23:57 8:57 AM MST10:57 AM EST11:27 AM VEN19:57 UAE10:57 AM CT-Gsellman was bombed for eight runs in 4 2/3 innings in the Mets' 9-8, 16-inning win over the Marlins on Thursday.
Analysis: Gsellman hasn't looked great so far in two starts, but perhaps he'll far better facing someone other than the Marlins.
