2019 Fantasy Outlook
Gagnon reached the majors for the first time as a 28-year-old in 2018, making one start and four relief appearances and finishing with a 5.25 ERA. His opportunity was due more to a lack of other options for the Mets rather than a breakout on his part, as he recorded an unremarkable 4.57 ERA in 27 starts with Triple-A Las Vegas. He did post a strong 25.8% strikeout rate at that level, though that number fell to 14.3% in the majors. With a fastball that sits at a modest 92 mph, no standout secondaries and a mediocre 8.9% walk rate, there's little reason to believe that he'll take a significant step forward this season. If the Mets' season goes according to plan, it's hard to see Gagnon throwing too many innings. Read Past Outlooks

Gagnon was recalled from Triple-A Syracuse on Saturday, Tim Healey of Newsday reports.
ANALYSIS
Gagnon has struggled mightily with the big club this season, posting an 8.74 ERA and 1.72 WHIP in 17 appearances, but he's been much better at Triple-A (2.33 ERA, 1.08 WHIP). The right-hander will provide depth to the bullpen over the final three-plus weeks of the regular season.
