LF Jared King, the Mets' fifth round pick in 2013 was 3-for-3 with a walk Sunday in his third game back from the DL. He's hit .268/.367/.350 overall with 25 walks against 37 strikeouts in 45 games.
Robert Gsellman continued his domination of the NYP: 7 IP, 5 H, 1 R, 0 ER, 1 BB, 5 K. When I saw him in Savannah in May, after a great performance for the Gnats, after an outing in which the 20-year-old threw 62 fastballs, 25 changeups and two curveballs, I wrote,
His fastball was 89-92 on Thursday. He has size (6’4″), poise, and feel for his fastball and changeup. All the same, his fastball is no better than average now, and his breaking ball is rudimentary.
It is certainly an uncommon profile when you mix his age and repertoire together. I want to see something else (more fastball velo, or more likely a more consistent breaking ball) before anointing him a big-time prospect, but he certainly has my full attention.
