Mets' Collins on Sean Gilmartin: 'He's pitched very well'
|by R.J. White | CBSSports.com|
|(3/25/15) Mets pitcher Sean Gilmartin, who is competing to be the team's primarly left-handed reliever in the bullpen this spring, retired all four batters he faced Wednesday, and manager Terry Collins praised his recent work after the outing, MLB.com reports.
"That's back-to-back very good outings for him," said Collins of Gilmartin, who threw 1 2/3 hitless innings in his previous appearance. "He's throwing his breaking balls for strikes, he's gotten the lefties [out] pitching in. He's got his changeup. He's pitched very well."
Gilmartin is starting to pick things up after struggling early this spring, and he stands a good chance of earning a bullpen spot if he can continue to excel. He owns a 5.87 ERA in 7 2/3 innings.
Mets taking additional look at LHPs Duane Below, Chase Huchingson

|(3/25/15) Left-handers Duane Below and Chase Huchingson were brought over from minor-league camp Wednesday for a Grapefruit League game, according to ESPN.
Per the report, the Mets are "dissatisfied" with the three southpaws on the roster (Scott Rice, Rule 5 pick Sean Gilmartin and Dario Alvarez), and are interested in taking an additional look at more lefty relievers.
"It's not a bad sign," Huchingson said. "That's for sure."
Mets disappointed by lefty relief options
|by R.J. White | CBSSports.com|
|(3/12/15) Mets left-handed pitchers Dario Alvarez, Sean Gilmartin, Jack Leathersich and Scott Rice have combined for a 15.43 spring ERA, leaving general manager Sandy Alderson and manager Terry Collins dissatisfied with the team's lefty candidates for the bullpen, ESPNNewYork.com reports.
"I’m not happy where we are with our left-handed situation," Alderson said Thursday.
The leading candidate to serve as the team's left-handed relief option at the beginning of spring was Josh Edgin, but the southpaw is now considering Tommy John surgery to fix an overstretched ligament in his elbow.
"Yeah, I’m disappointed," Collins said. "Here’s a chance. You come to the major league spring training and all you want is a chance. Now, with our guy down, if I’m left-handed I’m looking in the mirror and deciding what do I need to do to get that job, because it’s out there."
Alvarez surrendered four earned runs on one hit and three walks without recording an out in Thursday's 11-9 win over the Nationals.
Mets pitcher Gilmartin ready for challenge of joining new club
|by Brandon Wise | CBSSports.com|
|(2/23/15) New Mets pitcher Sean Gilmartin is ready for the new challenge of joining a new team this season. He will be battling with Dillon Gee and Rafael Montero for one of the last spots on the 40-man roster this season.
"It'll be interesting to see what happens," Gilmartin said. "I'm looking forward to it. I'm always looking for a new challenge. I'm going to accept the challenge and be ready for whatever situation I'll be put into."
Manager Terry Collins is liking what he's seen from Gilmartin so far.
"Coming from the Braves, he looks like the prototypical Braves left-hander," Collins said. "He works the outside corner to righties very well. He's got a very, very good changeup. He knows how to move the ball around, so we're anxious to see him get out there, and see whether or not he can fit in a different role."
