Mets recalled RHP Hansel Robles from Triple-A Las Vegas.

He'll replace the injured Anthony Swarzak (oblique) on the active roster. Robles has been a steady presence in New York's bullpen over the past three seasons, though he struggled with a 4.92 ERA and 10 homers allowed in 56 2/3 innings last season. He'll pitch in middle relief in his return to the big club.

Mets optioned RHP Hansel Robles and C Tomas Nido to Triple-A Las Vegas.

Robles was battling for one of the final spots in the bullpen, but his inconsistent performance in Florida along with the fact that he still had an option year left will have him starting the year in the Pacific Coast League. Both he and Nido could see time with the Mets if there are injuries in the pitching staff or behind the plate. The Mets are down to 32 players on their roster.

Hansel Robles was tagged for four runs in an inning of relief by the Tigers on Friday.

Those were the only four runs allowed by Mets pitching today, so his performance stands out all the more. Robles has been a big part of the Mets pen for much of the last three years, but the team soured on him somewhat last season. He has an option year left, so it's possible he'll begin the season in Triple-A.
Mar 9 - 5:01 PM

Mets and RHP Hansel Robles avoided arbitration by agreeing to a one-year, $900,000 contract.

It was Robles' first year of arbitration eligibility. The right-hander posted a 4.92 ERA over 46 relief appearances for the Mets last season.
Jan 12 - 5:32 PM

An MRI revealed no structural damage for injured right-hander Hansel Robles, which is terrific news given the scope of the injury he sustained.

He'll avoid a trip to the disabled list but may need another day or two before he's ready to pitch again out of the Mets' bullpen. Officially, the Mets are calling his injury "general fatigue".

Hansel Robles said he dealt with pinched genitals and hand numbness during his outing Thursday against the Rockies.

Robles injured his genitals on an awkward fall in the eighth and began to feel numbness in his hand an inning later. Perhaps that's what led to him losing the game on a walk-off wild pitch. Robles didn't alert coaches of his condition until after the game, believing he could work through it. For now, consider him day-to-day.

Mets recalled RHP Hansel Robles from Triple-A Las Vegas.

Robles began the season in a setup role but was sent down in late May after a rough start. He'll be used in lower-leverage situations this time around.

Mets optioned RHP Hansel Robles to Triple-A Las Vegas.

It wasn't too long ago that Robles looked like one of the club's better relief arms, but he has been rocked for 12 runs on 10 hits (including four home runs) and four walks in his last three appearances. His ERA now stands at 6.23 for the year. Josh Smoker will take his place in the bullpen.

Hansel Robles fired 2 2/3 hitless innings for his first career save as part of Friday’s 10-5 win over the Phillies.

Robles was very sharp, striking out three batters and walking none while throwing 17 out of 20 pitches for strikes. It was a much-needed performance with Addison Reed and Jeurys Familia both unavailable.

Hansel Robles (ankle) allowed one run on a hit and two walks in his return to action Saturday.

Robles was unavailable for a few days due to a sprained ankle, but he appears to be over the malady. The reliever has pitched well overall for the Mets this season, although he's struggled of late.

Hansel Robles left Wednesday's game against the White Sox with a sprained right ankle.

Robles was lifted on a one-out, 3-2 count in the 12th inning. According to manager Terry Collins, he caught one of his spikes on the mound while throwing a pitch, which led to the ankle tweak. Collins did not seem particularly concerned by the injury and Robles could return in short order, but for the time being, consider him day-to-day.

Hansel Robles was lifted from Wednesday's game against the White Sox due to an apparent injury.

Robles came on to start the top of the 12th inning. With one out in the frame, he had worked up a 3-2 count on Alex Avila before needing to be attended to on the mound. He was pulled in the middle of the at-bat, a rarity. The Mets should give an update on the nature of his injury in short order.

The New York Daily News' Kristie Ackert reports that Hansel Robles has agreed to serve a two-game suspension.

Robles got into hot water after throwing near the head area of the Phillies' Cameron Rupp near the end of the 2015 campaign. He was initially hit with a three-game suspension, which he appealed in early October. The situation has just reached its conclusion now, with one game being sliced off. According to the Daily News' report, the 25-year-old right-hander will sit out the Mets' first two games of the season against the Royals, starting on April 3. Mets manager Terry Collins indicated on Saturday that Robles has a secure spot in the bullpen.

Mets manager Terry Collins said Saturday that Hansel Robles is one of five hurlers with a secure spot in the club's Opening Day bullpen.

He joins Jeurys Familia, Antonio Bastardo, Addison Reed and Jerry Blevins. The final two spots will come down to a battle between Erik Goeddel, Sean Gilmartin, Jim Henderson and a host of other candidates.
