Lucchesi (elbow) was placed on the 60-day injured list Tuesday, Anthony DiComo of MLB.com reports. The move has no impact on Lucchesi's availability, as he'll miss a substantial portion of the season while recovering from Tommy John surgery, a procedure he underwent last June. The transaction clears space on the 40-man roster for the Mets to add Yoan Lopez, who was claimed off waivers from the Marlins.
Lucchesi (elbow) signed a one-year, $1.15 million contract with the Mets on Tuesday to avoid arbitration, Robert Murray of FanSided.com reports. Lucchesi underwent Tommy John surgery last June, so he's likely to sit out most of the season for his first year of arbitration eligibility. It's unclear where he currently stands in his recovery, but the left-hander could return sometime after the All-Star break if all goes well during his rehab.
Lucchesi (elbow) threw Tuesday for the first time since undergoing Tommy John surgery back in June, Tim Healey of Newsday reports. The timing of Lucchesi's surgery means he's likely to miss most of the 2022 season, but he should still be able to pitch before the end of the year if all goes well. It's a good sign to see that he's already throwing, but he still has many hurdles to clear before he's ready for game action.
The Mets moved Lucchesi (elbow) to the 60-day injured list Wednesday, Justin Toscano of The Bergen Record reports. The move is simply a procedural one, as it clears a spot on the 40-man roster with Lucchesi set to miss the remainder of the 2021 campaign due to Tommy John surgery. Lucchesi's season-ending injury came at an unfortunate time for the lefty, as he'd held opponents to one run or fewer in five consecutive outings after a few rough performances in April and May.
Lucchesi will undergo Tommy John surgery Thursday after being diagnosed with a torn UCL in his left elbow Monday, Tim Britton of The Athletic reports. The southpaw received a second opinion Tuesday and it ultimately confirmed Monday's diagnosis. The club was holding out hope that Lucchesi would be able to be able to rehab through the tear without surgery, but as is usually the case, he'll require the procedure. After posting a 4.46 ERA across 38.1 innings this season, the left-hander will be out for the remainder of 2021 and likely the majority of 2022. He'll likely be moved to the 60-day IL in the coming days.
