Mets considering skipping Robbie Gsellman's next start

The New York Mets are considering skipping pitcher Robbie Gsellman's next start, per Kristie Ackert of the New York Daily News.

What It Means:

The Mets have a pair of off days looming on Thursday and Monday, allowing the club to go with a four-man rotation for the next week or so if they want. Gsellman could pitch out of the bullpen to give the team's overworked relievers a bit of a breather before he starts again.

Gsellman owns a horrendous 7.07 ERA and 1.79 WHIP with five home runs allowed in 35 2/3 innings pitched this season.
