  • Mets' Drew Smith: Earns second save

    Smith earned his second save Sunday, allowing one hit and one walk over a scoreless two-thirds of an inning against the Phillies.

    Smith entered the game with two on and one out attempting to preserve a two-run lead after Jake Diekman and Reed Garrett had gotten seven outs between them beginning in the seventh inning. A base hit allowed an inherited runner to score, but Smith then benefitted from a great defensive play by Mets catcher Luis Torrens, who started a 2-3 double play to end the game. It was far from a clean outing for Smith, who was making just his second appearance since returning from an IL stint of more than a month due to shoulder inflammation. The right-hander will continue to hold a high-leverage spot in the Mets' bullpen and get occasional save chances while the team awaits the return to health and form of Edwin Diaz (shoulder).

  • Mets' Drew Smith: Returns from injured list

    The Mets reinstated Smith (shoulder) from the 15-day injured list Sunday.

    The 30-year-old has been sidelined more than a month with shoulder inflammation but is ready to rejoin the Mets after a four-appearance rehab assignment. Smith's return will provide a boost to New York's high-leverage unit, which is missing Edwin Diaz due to a shoulder injury.

  • Mets' Drew Smith: Restarts rehab assignment

    Smith (shoulder) resumed a rehab assignment with High-A Brooklyn on Sunday, tossing a scoreless inning, Tim Healey of Newsday reports.

    Smith was close to being activated earlier this month before experiencing a setback. He's back on the comeback trail now, though, and is expected to return in about a week after making a couple more rehab appearances.

  • Mets' Drew Smith: Return pushed back again

    Mets manager Carlos Mendoza said that Smith won't be activated from the 15-day injured list Wednesday after recently experiencing a "pinch" in his right shoulder, Anthony DiComo of MLB.com reports.

    He will have his return pushed back a second time because the Mets need length from their bullpen and Smith isn't ready to provide that yet. Smith is still able to continue throwing in spite of the setback, so he may not be ruled out for a return from the IL for Thursday's series finale in Philadelphia or at some point this weekend.

  • Mets' Drew Smith: Activation now expected Wednesday

    Smith (shoulder) is slated to be activated from the 15-day injured list Wednesday, Anthony DiComo of MLB.com reports.

    Smith is done with his rehab as he comes back from right shoulder inflammation. He had been slated to return Tuesday, but the Mets have elected to hold him back one more day. Smith has posted a 2.70 ERA and 11:7 K:BB over 10 relief innings this season.

  • Mets' Drew Smith: Could be activated Tuesday

    Mets manager Carlos Mendoza said Smith (shoulder) could return from the 15-day injured list Tuesday, Will Sammon of The Athletic reports.

    According to Anthony DiComo of MLB.com, Smith's minor-league rehab assignment is considered complete, so the Mets will merely need to decide which player will come off the 26-man active roster to create room for the right-handed reliever. Before hitting the shelf April 27 with shoulder inflammation, Smith logged three holds and one save over his 10 appearances out of the Mets bullpen while pitching to a 2.70 ERA and 1.70 WHIP across 10 innings.

  • Mets' Drew Smith: Set for another outing

    Smith (shoulder) is slated to make another appearance with Triple-A Syracuse on Saturday, Tim Britton of The Athletic reports.

    Smith started his rehab assignment with Syracuse on Wednesday, giving up a solo home run in an inning of relief while throwing 13 pitches. The right-hander is recovering from right shoulder inflammation that landed him on the 15-day IL on April 17.

  • Mets' Drew Smith: Kicks off rehab assignment

    Smith (shoulder) began a rehab assignment Wednesday with Triple-A Syracuse, giving up one run on one hit over an inning of relief.

    Smith served up a solo home run but otherwise navigated a 13-pitch eighth inning without much difficulty. The right-hander has been on the 15-day injured list since April 27 with shoulder inflammation and could need another rehab appearance or two before rejoining the Mets bullpen.

  • Mets' Drew Smith: Lands on IL

    The Mets placed Smith on the 15-day injured list Saturday with right shoulder inflammation, Will Sammon of The Athletic reports.

    Smith allowed two runs in one inning during his last appearance Tuesday, and his shoulder will now keep him out for at least the next two weeks. Dedniel Nunez was recalled from Triple-A Syracuse to fill the vacancy in New York's bullpen.

  • Mets' Drew Smith: Collects first save

    Smith struck out two batters in a perfect ninth inning Tuesday against Pittsburgh to collect his first save of the season.

    Smith threw 10 of his 12 pitches for strikes during the final frame, striking out Rowdy Tellez and Henry Davis in the process. He now owns an impressive 1.08 ERA through 8.1 innings on the year, though he should not be relied on for saves with Edwin Diaz locked in as New York's primary closer.

  • Mets' Drew Smith: Picks up win Friday

    Smith (1-0) collected the win Friday in a 3-2 victory over the Reds, giving up two hits and striking out one in a scoreless inning.

    The right-hander entered a 1-1 tie with two outs and two on in the sixth inning and got Luke Maile to pop up, before running into trouble himself in the seventh and getting bailed out by Brooks Raley. Smith has made an appearance in four of the Mets' first seven games, posting a 4:2 K:BB over four innings without getting charged with an earned run, and he's picked up a win and a hold along the way. The 30-year-old hasn't recorded more than 14 holds in a season, but he could easily top that number in 2024 given his fairly high-leverage role for New York.

  • Mets' Drew Smith: Locked into bullpen spot

    Smith has a 0.00 ERA and 5:1 K:BB through 4.2 Grapefruit League innings and will be part of the Mets' Opening Day bullpen, Will Sammon of The Athletic reports.

    The 30-year-old right-hander has been a dependable arm for New York the last two seasons, posting a 3.78 ERA, 1.29 WHIP and 113:44 K:BB over 102.1 innings with seven wins and 26 holds. Smith should be part of the middle-innings bridge to closer Edwin Diaz.

  • Mets' Drew Smith: Set to earn $2.2 million in 2024

    Smith signed a one-year, $2.2 million contract with the Mets on Thursday to avoid arbitration, Anthony DiComo of MLB.com reports.

    Smith saw his performance decline in 2023, though he notched a career-high 56.1 innings and 15 combined saves and holds. With Edwin Diaz getting a clean bill of health, Smith projects to occupy a setup role at best in 2024.

  • Mets' Drew Smith: Notches third save

    Smith gave up a hit and a walk in a scoreless ninth inning Friday to record his third save of the season in a 2-1 win over the Mariners. He struck out one.

    Neither Adam Ottavino not Brooks Raley has seen a heavy workload this week and both hadn't pitched since Wednesday, so Smith's usage here is a signal that manager Buck Showalter could be thinking about making the right-hander part of the closing committee in September. It's curious timing, as Smith had served up homers in each of his prior two appearances and posted a 4.09 ERA in August, but the team might be focused more on his 15:4 K:BB through 11 innings on the month.

  • Mets' Drew Smith: Takes loss in relief

    Smith (4-4) took the loss in Tuesday's 3-2 loss to the Cubs. He allowed two hits, including a home run, while striking out one over two-thirds of an inning.

    Smith was called upon in the eighth inning of a tense 2-2 tie and proceeded to serve up a decisive home run to Mike Tauchman on a center-cut, 3-2 fastball. Prior to Tuesday, Smith had seven consecutive scoreless appearances, during which he allowed only three hits and two walks while striking out eight across seven innings.

  • Mets' Drew Smith: Back from suspension

    Smith was reinstated Monday from his 10-game foreign substance abuse suspension.

    Smith received the 10-game ban after being ejected from the Mets' game against the Yankees back on June 13 when an umpire found sticky stuff on his right hand. He returns Monday to a 4.18 ERA and 28:10 K:BB through 23.2 innings for the year.

    Major League Baseball issued Smith a 10-game suspension Wednesday for a violation of the foreign substance policy, Anthony DiComo of MLB.com reports.

    Smith received the suspension after he was ejected from his relief appearance in Tuesday's game versus the Yankees. He won't appeal the suspension and will begin serving the ban Wednesday. Smith will be eligible to rejoin the Mets' 26-man active roster June 26.
