Gsellman had been on the Mets disabled list and was struggling in his Double-A rehab assignment with Binghamton when his GM said the pitcher needed to be pitching better. After throwing six shutout innings in his final rehab appearance, Gsellman was activated Tuesday and asked by a reporter about Alderson's comment.

Gsellman answered he did not care.

Alderson wasn't happy about that.

"But I hope that he reflects on the implications of that statement and the potential consequences of that statement and has a better response the next time out", Alderson said. He was charged with three runs - two earned - and four hits in a no-decision.

Sandy Alderson hinted on Wednesday that the Mets spent more money on players this offseason that originally budgeted, part of his explanation for why the club has shed about $9.3 million in salary while making a flurry of trades before and after the July 31 deadline. "I know he wants to get back on the field before the end of the season. So I went over to apologize for it", Gsellman said. I really care. It's my job, so I definitely care.

Gsellman on the season is 5-5 with an ERA of 5.98 in his 15 starts as well as 3 appearances in relief.

The Mets have struggled all season and are now in third place in the National League East at 53-65 and 18 games behind the first place Washington Nationals.
