The Mets are no longer to trade for a reliever, a person familiar with the team's thinking recently said, according to a Aug. 23 report by MLB.com's Anthony DiComo

However, later that day, Jon Niese was put on the disabled list, 24 hours after Steven Matz was put on the disabled list.

The Mets recently called up Triple-A starting pitcher Robert Gsellman to use in the bullpen, but he's now expected to replace Niese in the rotation.
