  • Mets' Seth Lugo: Notches third save

    Lugo gave up a hit in a scoreless ninth inning Monday to record his third save of the season in a 7-4 win over the Reds.

    Edwin Diaz had pitched the day before and on two of the last three days, so manager Buck Showalter elected to give his closer a breather and let Lugo wrap things up instead. The 32-year-old Lugo has been scored upon only twice in his last 14 appearances dating back to May 21, posting a 2.20 ERA, 0.86 WHIP and 15:2 K:BB over 16.1 innings during that stretch with a win, a save and five holds.

  • Mets' Seth Lugo: Officially reinstated

    Lugo was reinstated from the paternity list Thursday, Tim Healey of Newsday reports.

    Lugo has been away from the team since Monday for the birth of his child and was expected back in time for the team's weekend series against the Marlins. Now that he's officially back, Lugo should return to a setup role, working in front of Edwin Diaz. On the season, Lugo has maintained a 3.81 ERA, 1.20 WHIP and 27:7 K:BB across 28.1 innings.

  • Mets' Seth Lugo: Due back Friday

    Mets manager Buck Showalter said he expects Lugo (personal) to be activated from the paternity list prior to Friday's game in Miami, Mike Puma of the New York Post reports.

    After being placed on the list Monday, Lugo will be away from the team for a third straight game Wednesday in Houston while he spends time with his wife and newborn child. Since players on the paternity list can spend a maximum of three days away from their teams, Lugo will likely be formally activated Thursday, which is an off day for the Mets.

  • Mets' Seth Lugo: Goes on paternity leave

    The Mets placed Lugo on the paternity list Monday.

    He'll be away from the Mets for their next 1-to-3 games while he observes the birth of his child. The time away could allow Lugo to get a chance to mentally reset after he was charged with two blown saves over his last five appearances out of the bullpen. The right-hander still maintains decent ratios for the season (3.81 ERA, 1.20 WHIP, 16.9 K-BB%), so he'll be locked into a key setup role in front of closer Edwin Diaz once he rejoins the Mets.

  • Mets' Seth Lugo: Picks up hold No. 10

    Lugo walked one and struck out one over 1.1 scoreless innings Sunday to record his 10th hold of the season in a win over the Angels.

    The right-hander hasn't been dominant this season, but he has been a fairly reliable bridge to closer Edwin Diaz. Lugo sports a 3.51 ERA, 1.17 WHIP and 23:6 K:BB through 25.2 innings, adding one win and two saves to his holds total through 25 appearances.

  • Mets' Seth Lugo: Collects second save

    Lugo gave up a hit in a scoreless ninth inning Tuesday to record his second save of the season in the second game of a doubleheader sweep of Atlanta.

    Edwin Diaz notched the save in the matinee while Adam Ottavino picked up a hold, leaving closing duties in the nightcap to Lugo. Lugo has reeled off six straight scoreless appearances, lowering his ERA to 3.48 and his WHIP to 1.35, and he also has four holds in addition to his pair of saves from his 11 appearances. The 32-year-old remains one of the Mets' primary setup options, but should anything happen to Diaz, Lugo would likely step into the closer role.

  • Mets' Seth Lugo: Registers first save

    Lugo saved a 6-5 victory over Arizona on Friday, allowing one walk with two strikeouts in the 10th inning.

    After closer Edwin Diaz faltered in the ninth inning, Lugo was brought in for the 10th, when New York took the lead and delivered with a quick and easy inning. He appears locked into the setup role despite a high 5.68 ERA, which is mostly the result of one poor outing.

  • Mets' Seth Lugo: Blows save Monday

    Lugo (0-1) blew the save and took the loss as the Mets fell 5-4 to the Phillies on Monday, allowing two runs on two hits and a walk while recording only one out.

    The veteran reliever was one of three Mets arms to work a disastrous bottom of the eighth that began with Trevor May (arm) issuing a leadoff walk before Joely Rodriguez poured more fuel on the fire. By the time Lugo entered the game, a 4-0 lead had shrunk to 4-3, giving him no margin for error when his outing started with a walk to Nick Castellanos and back-to-back doubles by Rhys Hoskins and Didi Gregorius. There's no word on when Edwin Diaz (personal) might rejoin the team, but it seems likely Adam Ottavino will get the Mets' next save chance if it comes before the closer is back.

  • Mets' Seth Lugo: Signs with Mets for 2022

    Lugo agreed to a one-year, $3.925 million contract with the Mets on Tuesday to avoid arbitration, Mike Puma of the New York Post reports.

    Lugo will receive a $1 million raise from last season after recording one save and 13 holds with a 3.50 ERA, 1.29 WHIP and 55:19 K:BB over 46.1 innings. The veteran right-hander figures to be a key bullpen piece again for the Mets in 2022.

  • Mets' Seth Lugo: Snags second win

    Lugo (2-1) picked up the win in Monday's 4-2 victory over the Brewers after striking out two in a perfect seventh inning.

    The right-hander fired nine of his 11 pitches for strikes while carving up Milwaukee's 5-6-7 hitters, and Lugo was rewarded for his efforts when New York took the lead in the bottom of the frame. He's been his usual stalwart self since recovering from offseason elbow surgery, as Lugo has five holds and a save in 15 appearances with a 2.40 ERA, 1.13 WHIP and 21:6 K:BB through 15 innings.

  • Mets' Seth Lugo: Takes first loss Thursday

    Lugo (1-1) gave up one earned run on two hits and two walks while striking out one across two-thirds of an inning, taking the loss to Atlanta on Thursday.

    Lugo retired just two batters and allowed Freddie Freeman to walk it off in the ninth inning on a single. He has allowed just four runs all season for a 2.77 ERA and a 1.31 WHIP in 13 innings. It's the third time this season he's been scored upon in 13 outings.

  • Mets' Seth Lugo: Earns first win

    Lugo (1-0) gave up no hits and a walk while striking out three in a scoreless eighth inning to earn the win over the Phillies in the first game of Friday's doubleheader.

    Lugo gave up his first runs since his season debut during his last appearance, but he put up another scoreless outing to earn his first win of the year in Friday's matinee. He's held the opposition scoreless in eight of his first 10 games since he returned from the injured list, and he's posted a 2.61 ERA and 1.16 WHIP in 10.1 innings. The right-hander has served mainly as a setup man for closer Edwin Diaz.

  • Mets' Seth Lugo: Picks up first save

    Lugo earned the save Tuesday after tossing two scoreless innings. He allowed two hits and a walk while striking out three.

    With Edwin Diaz unavailable after pitching three of the last four games, Lugo came in to close out a one-run ballgame. He retired the side in the eighth, including a pair of strikeouts. After returning for the ninth, the right-hander worked around a pair of singles and a walk to finish off the win for the Mets, tossing 37 pitches in the process. Across six appearances this year, Lugo has compiled a 1.17 ERA and 1.17 WHIP.

  • Mets' Seth Lugo: Activated from IL

    The Mets reinstated Lugo (elbow) from the 60-day injured list ahead of Monday's game against the Diamondbacks.

    New York optioned Sean Reid-Foley to Triple-A Syracuse to open up a spot in the bullpen for Lugo, who was one of three Mets to return from the IL for Monday's series opener. Lugo finished last season in a starting role for the Mets, but he'll likely serve as a late-inning, multi-inning option in 2021 now that he's made a recovery from February surgery to remove a loose body from his elbow. Over his four rehab outings at Triple-A prior to being activated, Lugo gave up three runs (one earned) while striking out five in 4.1 innings.

  • Mets' Seth Lugo: Returning Monday

    Lugo (elbow) will be reinstated from the 60-day injured list Monday, Anthony DiComo of reports.

    Lugo was expected to return early in the week, and manager Luis Rojas confirmed Saturday that the right-hander will be reinstated when he's first eligible. Lugo underwent surgery to remove a loose body from his right elbow in mid-February but should be available to make his season debut in Monday's series opener in Arizona. Rojas clarified that Lugo's reinstatement could be pushed back due to weather conditions, but the team currently plans to have him back Monday.

  • Mets' Seth Lugo: Returning early next week

    Lugo (elbow) is expected to return from the injured list next Monday or Tuesday, Justin Toscano of The Bergen Record reports.

    Lugo hit the 60-day injured list at the start of the year after undergoing surgery to remove a loose body from his right elbow in mid-February. He's already made a pair of rehab appearances, throwing two scoreless innings, and he'll likely make two or three more this week before returning to the active roster.

  • Mets' Seth Lugo: Transferred to 60-day IL

    Lugo (elbow) was transferred to the 60-day injured list Monday.

    Lugo has been on the injured list since the start of the season. He was already tracking toward a late-May return, so his shift to the 60-day IL doesn't necessarily mean that he's experienced a setback. The right-hander will now be out until at least early June, and his removal from the 40-man roster will make room for outfielder Johneshwy Fargas, whose contract was selected in a corresponding move. Lugo will begin a rehab assignment with Low-A St. Lucie on Tuesday, Justin Toscano of The Bergen Record reports.
