Mets' Chasen Shreve: Two perfect innings, win

Shreve (1-0) earned the win in relief, pitching two perfect innings and striking out two in a 5-0 win Sunday over Arizona. Shreve entered the game in the sixth inning with the score 0-0 after a leadoff double knocked Trevor Williams out of the game. Shreve retired all six batters he faced and became the pitcher of record when the Mets' offense exploded for five runs. The journeyman reliever has now pitched four perfect innings in a row, striking out six in that span.

Mets' Chasen Shreve: Promotion official

The Mets selected Shreve's contract from Triple-A Syracuse on Wednesday. New York opened a spot on the 40-man roster for Shreve by designating pitcher Jordan Yamamoto for assignment. Shreve earned his spot in the Mets' Opening Day bullpen after tossing four no-hit innings and striking out six during the Grapefruit League season.

Mets' Chasen Shreve: Makes Opening Day roster

Shreve told Tim Healey of Newsday on Monday that the Mets have informed him that he's made their Opening Day roster. The Mets will likely make the move official within the next couple of days when Shreve's contract is purchased from the minors. Shreve, who was attending camp as a non-roster invitee, earned his way on the roster after striking out six and permitting just one walk in four no-hit innings during Grapefruit League play. The 31-year-old lefty is back for his second stint with the Mets, after he split the 2018 campaign between New York and St. Louis. He was most recently part of the Pirates organization in 2021, logging 57 appearances for the big club and compiling a 3.20 ERA and 1.26 WHIP over 56.1 innings.

Mets' Chasen Shreve: Joins Mets on minor-league deal

Shreve signed a minor-league contract with the Mets on Wednesday that includes an invite to major-league spring training, Joel Sherman of the New York Post reports. Shreve made 57 relief appearances for the Pirates in 2021 and logged 11 holds while posting a 3.20 ERA and 1.26 WHIP in 56.1 innings. He'll rejoin the Mets after making 17 appearances for the club during the 2020 campaign, and he'll make $1.5 million if he earns a major-league roster spot at some point.

Chasen Shreve: Elects free agency

Shreve declined an outright assignment to the minors Saturday and elected free agency. Shreve finished with a 3.20 ERA in 56.1 innings of relief this season, but his peripherals don't support that number very well, as he struck out a career-low 19.1 percent of opposing batters while walking 11.9 percent. Still, as a competent enough lefty reliever, he should be able to find work on the open market.

Pirates' Chasen Shreve: Takes third loss

Shreve (3-3) gave up two runs on a hit and a walk in two-thirds of an inning to take the loss and a blown save versus the Cubs on Wednesday. The southpaw allowed Trayce Thompson and Frank Schwindel to reach base in the seventh inning, and Nick Mears allowed both inherited runners to score on a Willson Contreras double. It's the second time in four appearances Shreve has taken a blown save and a loss. He has a solid 3.25 ERA, 1.28 WHIP and 44:28 K:BB through 55.1 innings while adding 11 holds this year while mainly working in the middle innings.

Pirates' Chasen Shreve: Stuck with loss Friday

Shreve (3-2) allowed three runs on two hits and a walk with a strikeout in one inning Friday, taking the loss versus Philadelphia. The southpaw didn't have his best stuff and he paid for it, allowing a three-run home run to Didi Gregorius in the seventh inning. Shreve has been effective for much of this season with a 3.08 ERA, 1.29 WHIP and 41:27 K:BB -- the elevated walk rate is the only real concern. He's added eight holds in 53 appearances, but he's rarely seen a truly high-leverage role.

Chasen Shreve enjoying increased workload in Pirates bullpen

SAN FRANCISCO — It’s literally been a running joke in the Pirates bullpen. That since his Pirates debut on May 12, no Pittsburgh reliever has jogged to the mound more frequently than Chasen Shreve, who had made 29 appearances between that date and Saturday’s game against the Giants at Oracle Park, the sixth-most in all of baseball.

Kyle Crick hits injured list while Gregory Polanco, Chasen Shreve join the active roster

The last time Pirates right-hander Kyle Crick took the mound, it was an uncharacteristically bad outing. It was Sunday against the Chicago Cubs. Staked to a 6-2 lead entering the ninth inning, Crick hit the first batter he faced, then unfurled a wild pitch during the next at-bat before walking that hitter, too. He was able to induce a fly out after that before being pulled early to make way for closer Richard Rodriguez. This from a reliever who, in his previous 11 outings this season, had walked just five batters and hit only one other.

Pirates' Chasen Shreve: Sent to alternate site

Shreve was sent to minor-league camp Monday. Shreve was in camp as a non-roster invitee, attempting to win a bullpen spot. He had a good spring, posting a 3.86 ERA and 0.96 WHIP in 9.1 innings, but that evidently wasn't enough to earn him a job.
