The Yankees scored three runs in 5 1/3 innings Wednesday night against Robert Gsellman, who threw a wild pitch, walked three batters and gave up four hits, including a 457-foot home run by Aaron Judge that landed in the third deck above left field.
Nevertheless, Mets manager Terry Collins said after the game that Gsellman will get another start next week, most likely at home against the Diamondbacks.
Gsellman was making his return from a hamstring injury to start in place of Seth Lugo, who was put back on the disabled list earlier this week with pain in his pitching shoulder. According to multiple reports, had Lugo not been injured, Gsellman would have remained in Triple-A, where he had been struggling to perform during his rehab assignment.
"I think he ran out of gas," Collins said about Gsellman's start Wednesday. "I thought he was fine. His changeup was outstanding. The ball had good sink."
