LHP Sean Gilmartin has been claimed by the St. Louis Cardinals after being designated for assignment by the Mets earlier on Sunday.

The Mets designated Gilmartin for assignment to clear room for RHP Seth Lugo.

Lugo made his 2017 debut after recovering from a partial tear of his ulnar collateral ligament. He pitched in 17 games for the Mets last season, going 5-2 with a 2.67 ERA.

Mets INF Wilmer Flores was activated from the 10-day disabled list prior to Wednesday night's game in Atlanta.

LHP Sean Gilmartin was sent to Triple-A Las Vegas to make room on the 25-man roster for Flores.

Flores, who has been on the disabled list since April 21 due to a knee infection, went 2-for-4 for Triple-A Las Vegas on Tuesday night as he concluded his rehab assignment.

Four Mets relievers, including catcher Kevin Plawecki, combined to give up 18 runs and 18 hits in Sunday's 23-5 loss to the Washington Nationals at Nationals Park.

New York's bullpen, which had allowed nine home runs all season entering Sunday, gave up seven home runs. Its 3.64 ERA skyrocketed to 5.06.

Sean Gilmartin gave up five runs and two homers in 2 2/3 innings after starting pitcher Noah Syndergaard left the game with an injury in the second inning.

Yoenis Cespedes has been placed on the 10-day disabled list due to his strained left hamstring and LHP Sean Gilmartin has been recalled from Triple-A Las Vegas, the Mets announced Friday.

Mets manager Terry Collins said the team got better news than expected on Cespedes, but that he would still be out for a while.

Cespedes exited Thursday afternoon's game in the fourth inning due to the hamstring injury after he came up limping while legging out a double to lead off the inning.

The 26-year-old was hitting .300 with four RBIs and 10 runs scored in 13 games with the 51s, starting games in left field, center and third base. Reynolds made his Major League debut last year with New York and hit .225/.266/.416 with three homers and 13 RBIs in 47 games.

Gilmartin made one appearance for the Mets, recording two outs without allowing a run. The southpaw has a 3.69 ERA in 65 Major League appearances.

He has not played since exiting Thursday's game with a hamstring issue. He was on deck to pinch hit Sunday night, but did not get in to the game. Terry Collins said he's hopeful Cespedes will return to the lineup on Tuesday. If he again doesn't play, the Mets will have the option of back-dating a potential 10-day stint on the disabled list.

The Mets have interest in free agent RHP Doug Fisterreports Jon Heyman of FanRag Sports.

Fister is still seeking a major league deal, says Heyman, who speculates it's 'a little too late' for that.

The 33-year-old Fister, who did not pitch during Spring Training, had a 4.64 ERA (4.75 FIP) and 1.42 WHIP while striking out 115 batters in 180 1/3 innings (32 starts) for the Astros last season.

Bartolo Colon remains among the most popular figures in recent Mets history, as further evidenced by the warm reception he received when introduced with the Braves on Opening Day at Citi Field on Monday. And given the Mets' suddenly thinner rotation, Colon certainly could have been useful had he remained for a fourth season in Queens.

Yet the decision to allow Colon to defect to Atlanta for $12.5 million on Nov. 17 ought not be second-guessed now that Seth Lugo reportedly has a partial tear of the ulnar collateral ligament in his right elbow and Steven Matz has disclosed he has a strained flexor tendon in his left elbow.

When Colon opposes Jacob deGrom on Wednesday night at Citi Field -- at 43 years, 315 days old -- the veteran right-hander will become the oldest pitcher in the majors to start one of a team's first two games of a season since Jamie Moyer with the Rockies at age 49 in 2012. And certainly there will be an expiration date on Colon's productivity at some point sooner than later, even if he appears ageless.

That's not what dissuaded the Mets from re-signing him, however.

The Mets are open to acquiring depth for the starting rotation, though they are currently not being proactive about it, the NY Post's Joel Sherman reported late Tuesday.

Mike Bolsinger, Colby Lewis, Doug Fister, Alfredo Simon, Ryan Vogelsong, Tim Lincecum and Mike Pelfrey are currently available on the free-agent market.

However, according to Sherman, before the Mets sign someone from outside the organization, they'll likely turn to Rafael Montero and Triple-A pitcher Sean Gilmartin.

Rubin says that might price the Mets out on the 33-year-old Blevins.

Blevins had a 2.79 ERA and 1.21 WHIP with 52 strikeouts in 42 innings (73 appearances) for the Mets this past season, while left-handers hit .255 with a .313 OBP and .324 SLG against him.

Mets RHP Noah Syndergaard threw a bullpen session Saturday and is expected to pitch on either Monday or Tuesday against the Marlins, Terry Collins told reporters Saturday.  

The team will see how the right-hander feels after the session to determine which day he will pitch. 

"He feels a lot better today," Collins told reporters. "He's got some energy back. But I think after the pen, we'll see how he feels, if it wears him down real fast or not."

The Mets (82-72) and Phillies (63-85) play the third game of their four-game series on Saturday night, which you can watch on SNY or follow online here



Sean Gilmartin (0-0, 4.76 ERA) will get the start for the Mets and will be opposed by RHP Alec Asher (1-0, 2.16 ERA).

Gilmartin will be making his first start of the season, and just his second major league start, in place of Noah Syndergaard, who has strep throat. He has not allowed a run in five relief appearances in September. 

Asher will be making his fourth start of the month, seeking his second win. Last time out against the Marlins, he allowed two runs on six hits in 4.1 innings. He had pitched at least six innings in his two previous starts. On Sept. 30 against the Mets last season, Asher allowed five runs in a start where he recorded just two outs.

The Mets discussed making a roster move in the bullpen, but ultimately decided against it, Terry Collins said before Friday's game.

Kristie Ackert of the Daily News said earlier in the day that Triple-A relievers Sean Gilmartin and Erik Goeddel were on their way to potentially join the team in New York. However, only one of them would have been activated, according to Mike Puma of the New York Post.


Gilmartin was sent to Triple-A Las Vegas just three days ago, so the Mets would need to place another player on the disabled list in order to activate him.

Goeddel has spent the season wtih Las Vegas, where he's posted a 5.65 ERA and 1.74 WHIP in 14 1/3 innings.

Mets manager Terry Collins said that there are two open bullpen spots, as it stands today. 

He also said Jim Henderson will get a good look during spring training. Collins hasn't seen him throw yet, but is intrigued by his experience.

Bartolo Colon wanted to come back and brings a lot to the table, from his durability and ability to pitch out of the bullpen once Zack Wheeler returns, Collins said. Collins also said Colon could be a late-inning pitcher.

Many of the young pitchers, including Sean Gilmartin, Jeff Walters and Akeel Morris, were out early throwing in the six-pack bullpen area under the watchful eye of Dan Warthen, Frank Viola and many others.

Usually, you'll see all the pitchers (and players, when they're all here) go out for a stretch together before breaking off into the groups and sessions. But this crew - and there were many of them, at least 20-25 pitchers - was out early, before many of the media even arrived.

The Mets plan to use Sean Gilmartin and/or Logan Verrett as a sixth starter occasionally during the first half of the season, GM Sandy Alderson told reporters on Wednesday.

Alderson said that no one in the starting rotation is under a pitch limit or innings restriction, but noted that it's wise to space out starts and get extra rest when possible for the staff.

Including the postseason, of the Mets' expected starting rotation in 2016, all but Bartolo Colon reached career-highs in innings last season.
