Robert Gsellman took a loss after giving up four runs -- three earned -- while getting just one out in the seventh Tuesday against the Braves.

Gsellman might not have been ready for the early appearance; Noah Syndergaard was great through six before coming out due to illness and Gsellman hadn't entered a game prior to the eighth inning since Aug. 6. Gsellman ended up retiring just one of the five batters he faced, making this perhaps his worst appearance of the season.

Making his first start in three days, Austin Jackson went 1-for-4 with two strikeouts Tuesday.

Jackson is 9-for-66 with a 27/2 K/BB ratio in September, so the Mets have curtailed his playing time some, though perhaps not as much as they should have. After all, Jackson is a free agent this winter and he shouldn't be in the team's plans for 2019.

Noah Syndergaard pitched through an illness on Tuesday night against the Braves.

The Mets weren't sure he was even going to be able to make the start and sent him home from Citi Field after he impressively tossed six scoreless frames. Syndergaard is in line to work the team's season finale Sunday versus the Marlins. He's sitting on a 3.22 ERA and 149 strikeouts in 145 1/3 innings.

Mets assistant GM John Ricco said Tuesday that he "would fully anticipate" Mickey Callaway returning as the team's manager in 2019.

It's been a disappointing 2018 in Queens, especially after the Mets got off to such a hot start in March and April, but it's hard to put much of the blame on Callaway given all the injuries and underperforming players up and down the roster. And the team has actually rebounded somewhat in the second half. Callaway was hired last October and given a three-year deal with an option for a fourth year.

Dominic Smith is not in Tuesday's lineup against the Braves.

Assuming the weather holds out, Jay Bruce will make the start at first base while Austin Jackson is in center field. Smith should still get another couple of starts this final week.

Mets placed RHP Eric Hanhold on the 60-day disabled list with a strained left oblique.

This obviously rules him out for the remainder of the season. Hanhold made three appearances for the Mets after posting a 4.20 ERA and 57/16 K/BB ratio over 49 1/3 innings in the minors this season. The move clears a spot for David Wright's return.

Mets activated 3B David Wright from the 60-day disabled list.

Wright hasn't played in a major league game since May 27, 2016, but he's finally back on the Mets' active roster. He's slated to start at third base this Saturday before calling it a career, but it's possible he could have some pinch-hit appearances as well. Either way, it's remarkable that he's making it back on the field after all of the physical ailments he has dealt with in recent years. It should be an emotional send-off for the Mets' captain and fan favorite.

Jenrry Mejia reported to training camp in the Dominican Republic on Monday.

Mejia was reinstated back in July after receiving a permanent ban following his third positive PED test back in 2016. He went on to make a couple of appearances with the Mets' affiliates in the Dominican Summer League. It's unclear what the team's plans are for him moving forward, but he'll be eligible to pitch in 2019 assuming no other issues pop up. Mejia, 28, holds a 3.68 ERA over 113 appearances (including 18 starts) in the majors.

Steven Matz yielded three runs on five hits over three innings in a no-decision against the Nationals on Sunday.

Matz was bailed out by the Mets offense after imploding in the third inning. He served up a solo homer to Victor Robles to start the frame before giving up an RBI double to Bryce Harper and walking Spencer Kieboom with the bases loaded. The 27-year-old left-hander issuing three walks and struck out four. He's 5-11 with a 4.14 ERA, 1.27 WHIP and 144/57 K/BB ratio in 29 starts. He’ll take on the Marlins at home in his final start of the season on Saturday.
Sep 23 - 7:24 PM

Anthony Swarzak recorded an adventurous five-out save, his fourth of the year, in the Mets' win over the Nationals on Sunday.

Swarzak was summoned to preserve a two-run lead with a runner on and one out in the eighth inning. He walked the first batter he faced, Anthony Rendon, to put the tying run on base before striking out Mark Reynolds. He uncorked a wild pitch to advance the tying runs into scoring position, but coaxed an inning-ending pop up from rookie sensation Juan Soto to end the threat. He came back out for the ninth and managed to work around a hit batter and a pair of hard line drives to slam the door. The 33-year-old veteran owns a 6.04 ERA in 27 appearances this year.
Sep 23 - 7:13 PM

Amed Rosario went 2-for-5 with an RBI and a stolen base in the Mets' win over the Nationals on Sunday.

Rosario slapped a pair of base hits, including an RBI infield hit in the fifth inning, and swiped his 22nd base of the year. The 22-year-old shortstop is still widely considered one of the most talented young infielders in the game, but it hasn't translated into big-time fantasy production at the highest level. He's hitting .261/.299/.391 with 76 runs scored, nine homers, 50 RBI and 22 steals in 568 plate appearances this year.
Sep 23 - 6:59 PM

Michael Conforto went 2-for-6 with a three-run triple in the Mets' win over the Nationals on Sunday.

Conforto cleared the bases with a go-ahead, three-run triple, his first of the year, off Nationals reliever Wander Suero in the fourth inning. He also singled in the third inning to record his 29th multi-hit effort of the year. The 25-year-old slugger is hitting .242/.348/.445 with 74 runs scored, 27 homers, 80 RBI and a pair of stolen bases in 612 plate appearances.
Sep 23 - 6:55 PM

Jeff McNeil went 4-for-5 with an RBI and a stolen base in the Mets' 8-6 win over the Nationals on Sunday.

It was an epic performance from the 26-year-old rookie infielder, who reached base safely in five of six plate appearances in this one. He's recorded an astounding 19 multi-hit efforts in just 57 games since being called up from Triple-A Las Vegas on July 24. McNeil singled and swiped second base, his sixth steal of the year, in the first inning, singled in the third, delivered an RBI single and came around to score a run in the fourth, singled in the fifth and capped off his afternoon with a walk in the seventh. He's hitting an absurd .340/.398/.495 with 32 runs scored, three homers and 19 RBI in 221 plate appearances.

Michael Conforto went 1-for-2 with a pair of walks during a shutout loss to the Nationals on Saturday.

That one hit was rather significant because it was the only one his team got all day and it averted a no-hitter. The Mets' offense reached a new low today as it seems they are ready for the season to end. It's been a disappointing season for Conforto's fantasy owners because not only has the young outfielder failed to take a step forward he's actually regressed significantly. After slashing .279/.384/.555 last year he is down to .241/.348/.443 with 27 homers and 77 RBI in 606 plate appearances.
Sep 22 - 7:03 PM

Corey Oswalt allowed two runs over five innings of work and was charged with a loss to the Nationals on Saturday.

Trea Turner ripped a two-run dinger off him in the third inning, and on an afternoon where the Mets got shut out that was all it took to hand him a loss. Oswalt struck out four, walked two and surrendered four total knocks. He falls to 3-3 on the season with a 6.08 ERA in 11 starts and five relief appearances. He will likely get one more start this season, against the Marlins on Friday.
