New York Mets starting pitcher Robert Gsellman left Tuesday’s 6-3 loss against the Miami Marlins in the fourth inning with a strained left hamstring. Gsellman was trying to beat out a grounder when suffering the injury on the basepaths, adding to the long line of Mets pitchers sidelined.
Expect Gsellman to undergo an MRI to determine whether the 23-year old will need a stint on the disabled list. Best case, Gsellman is just day-to-day and will be out there for his next start, but chances are, he will need a week or two to get back out on the mound.
Gsellman is in the midst of a disappointing season in New York after an impressive end to 2016, as he is 5-5 with a 6.16 earned run average this year.
