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.
Apr 1 - 2:29 PM

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.
Mar 6 - 5:39 PM

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.

The Twins will receive pitching prospect Sean Gilmartin from the Braves in return for Ryan Doumit, according to Fox Sports' Ken Rosenthal.

A 2011 first-round pick, Gilmartin shot all the way up to Triple-A in his first full professional campaign. He was blasted this past at Gwinnett, however, going 3-8 with a 5.74 ERA. Gilmartin doesn't have great stuff, but he pounds the strike zone with a three-pitch arsenal. Minnesota, which is desperate for starting pitching of any kind, did well to acquire a lottery ticket for a player they no longer wanted.
Wed, Dec 18, 2013 03:04:00 PM

Braves pitching prospect Sean Gilmartin has been placed on Triple-A Gwinnett's disabled list due to shoulder tendinitis.

A 2011 first-round pick, Gilmartin has struggled this season with a 5.83 ERA and 47/30 K/BB ratio over 71 innings with Gwinnett. It's not clear how long he'll be sidelined.
Wed, Jun 19, 2013 07:00:00 PM

Braves reassigned LHP Sean Gilmartin and RHP Wirfin Obispo to minor league camp.

Neither had a real shot to crack the Opening Day roster. One of the club's top pitching prospects, Gilmartin will be part of Triple-A Gwinnett's rotation.

Braves prospect Sean Gilmartin pitched six shutout innings Saturday, allowing only two hits in his debut for Double-A Mississippi.

He did not strike out or walk any hitters in the game, throwing 43 of his 71 pitches for strikes. Gilmartin, a 21-year-old left-hander, was the Braves' first-round selection (28th overall) in the 2011 draft.
Sat, Apr 7, 2012 11:43:00 PM

The Braves have agreed to terms with their first-round pick from the 2011 draft, left-hander Sean Gilmartin.

Gilmartin is the seventh first-round pick to sign a contract. A promising left-handed starter, he's known for having a highly developed changeup and should move quickly through the Braves' minor league system.
