The Mets have recalled relief pitchers Jacob Rhame and Jamie Callahan from Triple-A Las Vegas, their first official call-ups now that we’ve already reached the final month of baseball and rosters have expanded. Rhame came from the Dodgers when the Mets traded Curtis Granderson, and Callahan came from the Red Sox in the team Addison Reed trade. Both pitchers will probably get a good look this month to see if they can bolster the bullpen for 2018.

On top of those moves, Newsday’s Marc Carig reports that Robert Gsellman and Kevin McGowan will rejoin the team in the near future. After seven stellar starts in 2016, Gsellman has struggled mightily this year. In 91.2 innings at the major league level, he has a 5.60 ERA and 4.98 FIP. McGowan has had a couple of stints on the major league roster but has thus far pitched in just one game, a one-and-one-third inning appearance against the Diamondbacks in which he gave up a run on two hits with one strikeout and two walks.
