The Mets officially placed Robert Gsellman on the 10-day disabled list today after he strained his hamstring during Tuesday’s loss to the Marlins. They recalled infielder Matt Reynolds from the Triple-A Las Vegas 51s to take his roster spot.
Reynolds has yo-yo’d back and forth between Vegas and Queens this season. He was sent back down to Vegas only a week ago, and went 7-for-20 with three home runs during his short stint there. Reynolds has been much less effective in the majors though, and carries a .185/.267./.296 line in 27 at-bats with the Mets this year.
Gsellman has had a volatile season for the Mets. He put together a nice run of starts between May 24 and June 10 but had gotten shelled in his two most recent outings before the injury. He has a 6.16 ERA in 76 innings of work for the Mets so far this season.
Gsellman is the sixth Mets starter to spend time on the DL. He pulled his hamstring while trying to beat a grounder to first base in Tuesday’s game, which the Mets went on to lose 6-3.
