Sean Gilmartin Comes Up Big In Mets Win

Lost in the mix of last night’s thrilling Mets win over the Philadelphia Phillies was the strong performance the team got out of their unheralded relief pitcher Sean Gilmartin.

And Here Comes Sean Gilmartin

I know, I know, only two weeks ago I said, “No way this guy makes the 25, he looks like roadkill out there.” But what to my wondering eyes should appear, but a lefty reliever who throws with no fear. So out of this pack of underwhelming relievers, Sandy’s words not mine, here comes Sean Gilmartin who has squarely placed himself in front of the pack after a few very solid appearances...

Sean Gilmartin and the Gwinnett Braves

Triple-A is weird. It’s the second-most-skilled level in American professional baseball, but it doesn’t have a lot of “prospects.” Many of these players have played or will play in the majors, but they aren’t considered as exciting because there’s a much clearer image of what kind of players they are. Lower-level players have more projection and potential, which makes them more interesting...

Braves Sean Gilmartin: Tale Of Two Starts

Sean Gilmartin, the Atlanta Braves 2011 first round pick embarrassed South Atlantic League opponents in a brief, but impressive stint where he posted a staggering K/BB ratio of 15/1 over five starts.
