Sean Gilmartin started versus the Nationals on Saturday and allowed one run on one hit in two innings.
He gave up a home run to Bryce Harper in his second inning of work to account for the only blemish on his line. He is unlikely to make the Mets' rotation and will need a sterling spring to earn a spot in the bullpen. He pitched in 14 games for the Mets last year, finishing with a brutal 7.13 ERA in 17 2/3 innings. The left-hander will try to regain his 2015 form in which he put up a 2.67 ERA in 57 1/3 frames.

Mets recalled LHP Sean Gilmartin from Triple-A Las Vegas.

Gilmartin held a 2.67 ERA in 57 1/3 innings last season, but he has yet to find that kind of success in 2016. The 26-year-old southpaw has made five appearances with the Mets this season and has allowed seven runs on 11 hits in nine innings. There is no fantasy intrigue here.

Mets recalled LHP Sean Gilmartin from Triple-A Las Vegas.

Adam Rubin of ESPN New York hears that left-hander Sean Gilmartin is headed to New York from Las Vegas.

No word yet on the corresponding roster move, but it appears that Jim Henderson (shoulder) could be headed to the disabled list. Gilmartin has made two appearances with the Mets this year and owns a 4.48 ERA over 12 starts in Triple-A this year.

Mets optioned LHP Sean Gilmartin to Triple-A Las Vegas.

Mets recalled LHP Sean Gilmartin from Triple-A Las Vegas.

Gilmartin will join the Mets' bullpen ahead of Thursday night's series finale at Dodger Stadium. He posted an impressive 2.67 ERA, 1.186 WHIP, and 54/18 K/BB ratio in 57 1/3 innings last season for New York.

Mets optioned LHP Sean Gilmartin to Triple-A Las Vegas.

Gilmartin lasted all season on the Mets' roster last year after being taken in the Rule 5 Draft, but he'll begin 2016 back in the minors. The lefty posted a 4.15 ERA over six appearances this spring.

Sean Gilmartin scattered four hits in three scoreless innings Sunday as the Mets beat the Braves 7-5.

After making the Mets as a Rule 5 pick, Gilmartin had a 2.67 ERA in 57 1/3 innings out of the pen last year. He seemed poised to return there to begin this year, but after the Antonio Bastardo signing, the Mets have the flexibility to send Gilmartin down to Triple-A to work as a starter if they'd like. It'll depend on how the rest of the bullpen shapes up this month.

Mets added LHP Sean Gilmartin to their postseason roster.

Gilmartin is replacing Erik Goeddel who gave up three runs on four hits without recording an out in his lone appearance in the NLDS. Gilmartin owned a 2.67 ERA, 1.19 WHIP and 54/18 K/BB ratio over 57 1/3 strong innings out of the Mets bullpen during the regular season.

Sean Gilmartin will travel with the Mets to Los Angeles for the NLDS against the Dodgers.

He'll be on the NLDS roster if Steven Matz (back) isn't able to pitch. Gilmartin posted a 2.67 ERA and 54/18 K/BB ratio over 57 1/3 innings this season.

Sean Gilmartin pitched well over five innings in Thursday afternoon's loss to the Phillies, allowing two runs on three hits.

Gilmartin struck out three and walked one on the afternoon. The only real mistake he made came in the fourth inning, when he served up a two-run gopher ball to Darin Ruf. This was the 25-year-old southpaw's first start of the season. He's pitched exclusively from the bullpen otherwise while working his way to a 2.67 ERA, 1.16 WHIP and 54/18 K/BB ratio across 57 1/3 innings. He'll return to the pen for the Mets' playoff run.

Mets manager Terry Collins said Monday that he expects Rule 5 pick Sean Gilmartin to make the Opening Day roster.

The Mets acquired Jerry Blevins and Alex Torres on Monday, so if they decide to keep Gilmartin, that means they will carry three left-handers in their bullpen. Gilmartin would have to go back to the Twins if he doesn't make the team. The 24-year-old has a 5.19 ERA with an 11/5 K/BB ratio over 8 2/3 innings this spring.

Mets selected LHP Sean Gilmartin from the Twins in the Rule 5 draft.

Gilmartin was the pitcher the Twins got from the Braves for Ryan Doumit a year ago. The 24-year-old has little in the way of upside, and while he succeeded back in Double-A last season, he wasn't as impressive after returning to Triple-A, finishing 2-4 with a 4.28 ERA in 14 starts. In 2013, he had a 5.74 ERA in 17 Triple-A starts. He's not worth the roster spot for the Mets.

Twins acquired LHP Sean Gilmartin from the Braves for C/OF Ryan Doumit.

Although not as gratifying as the 1991 World Series result, Minnesota will take the win here. The Twins didn't want to pay Doumit's $3.5 million salary next season, and now they won't have to. This transaction is great news for AL-only owners sniffing around Jason Kubel's 2014 sleeper potential, as Doumit would have been his primary competition for DH at-bats. Gilmartin might remind Twins fans of a more polished Scott Diamond, if you'll forgive the pun. The 2011 first-round pick is a southpaw with subpar velocity who pounds the strike zone with good movement. The Twins can let him marinate at Triple-A Rochester next summer because it has four veteran starters under contract and a host of fifth starter candidates already in place.
