Mets' Walker Lockett: Lands on injured list
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Lockett was placed on the 10-day injured list with lower back discomfort Monday, Anthony DiComo of MLB.com reports.

It's not clear how much time Lockett is expected to miss. His absence won't be a significant loss for the Mets, as he struggled to an 8.34 ERA and a 1.72 WHIP in 22.2 innings last season.

Mets' Walker Lockett: Making case for spot
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Lockett gave up three hits over three scoreless innings in Monday's Grapefruit League game against the Marlins. He struck out two.

It was the right-hander's first start, and second appearance, this spring, and he has yet to give up a run through 4.2 frames. Lockett is out of minor-league options, but given the Mets' offseason pitching additions and his 8.84 career ERA in the majors, the best he can hope for at the end of camp is to win a long-relief spot in the bullpen.

Mets' Walker Lockett: Summoned to majors
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Lockett was recalled from Triple-A Syracuse on Saturday, Tim Healey of Newsday reports.

Lockett will provide the Mets with length out of the bullpen for the final month of the season. He's struggled to a 7.79 ERA and 1.62 WHIP across 17.1 innings with the big club this season, though he owns a 3.66 ERA and 1.46 WHIP across 59 innings with Syracuse. Chris Mazza was sent to the minors in a corresponding move.

Mets' Walker Lockett: Optioned to Triple-A
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Lockett was optioned to Triple-A Syracuse on Tuesday.

He will head down for a little over a week before rejoining the big club in September. Lockett did not pitch in his most recent big-league stint, instead just serving as added bullpen depth. He typically works as a mop-up man or spot starter.

Mets' Walker Lockett: Back in big leagues
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Lockett was recalled from Triple-A Syracuse on Saturday, Tim Healey of Newsday reports.

He takes the place of Robert Gsellman (triceps), who was placed on the injured list. Lockett has a 7.79 ERA, 1.62 WHIP and 13 strikeouts in 17.1 MLB innings. He should work as a long reliever.

Mets' Walker Lockett: Back at Triple-A
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

The Mets optioned Lockett to Triple-A Syracuse on Tuesday.

Lockett joined the Mets for a spot start in the second game of Monday's doubleheader with the Marlins but was never expected to stick around with the big club beyond that outing. He ended up taking a no-decision in the 5-4 win, giving up all of the Marlins' runs in that contest and yielding eight hits and two walks over 4.2 innings.

Mets' Walker Lockett: Gives up four runs
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Lockett gave up four runs on eight hits and two walks while striking out four through 4.2 innings in a no-decision against the Marlins during the second game of Monday's doubleheader.

Lockett worked his way out of trouble through the first three innings, but he gave up four runs in his next 1.2 frames before his early exit. The 25-year-old has a 7.79 ERA with a 13:5 K:BB through four starts this season. Lockett was called up as the 26th man for the second game of the twin bill and will not likely remain in the rotation.

Mets' Walker Lockett: Promotion official
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

The Mets recalled Lockett from Triple-A Syracuse to serve as the 26th man for Monday's doubleheader with the Marlins.

He'll make his fourth start for the big club this season in the back end of the twin bill while Jacob deGrom gets the ball for the first game. Over his previous three turns with the Mets, Lockett has covered only 12.2 innings while surrendering 11 runs on 15 hits and three walks. He'll at least get a soft landing spot in his return to the majors, taking on a Miami offense that ranks last in the majors with a 75 team wRC+ this season.

Mets' Walker Lockett: Tabbed to start Monday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Lockett is scheduled to be recalled from Triple-A Syracuse to start Game 2 of Monday's doubleheader against the Marlins, Tim Healey of Newsday reports.

Lockett allowed one run over five innings during a spot start July 20 and seems destined for a similarly short stay in the majors this time around. The 25-year-old has a 3.83 ERA, 1.47 WHIP and 31:11 K:BB though 47 innings with Syracuse this season.

July 27, 2019 11:28 AM
Mets' Walker Lockett: Sent back to minors
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Lockett was optioned to Triple-A Reno on Friday.

Lockett performed well in a spot start over the weekend, firing five scoreless innings in an 11-4 win over the Giants, but he's no longer needed in the big-league rotation with Zack Wheeler (shoulder) back from the injured list. Lockett will remain an option to rejoin the Mets' rotation later in the season should an injury or trade create an opening.

July 23, 2019 12:48 AM
Mets' Walker Lockett: Pitches well in spot start
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Lockett (1-1) picked up his first victory of the season after tossing five shutout innings Saturday while allowing five hits and striking out three in an 11-4 win over the Giants.

Lockett was called up prior to the contest to fill in for the injured Zack Wheeler (shoulder). The 25-year-old's third start went far better than his previous two in the majors this year (11.74 ERA), as he was able to silence a red-hot San Francisco lineup. Lockett needed just 58 pitches (43 strikes) to get through five frames, but the three strikeouts highlight the righty's lackluster punchout rate (4.8 K/9 over 39 innings with Triple-A Syracuse this year). Wheeler could return in as soon as a week, Mike Puma of The New York Post reports, so there is no guarantee that Lockett will earn another start if the team opts to use Monday's day off to skip the need for a fifth starter.

Mets' Walker Lockett: Called up ahead of start
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Lockett was recalled from Triple-A Syracuse ahead of his start Saturday in San Francisco, Matt Ehalt of Yahoo! Sports reports.

Lockett owns a 10.32 ERA in 22.2 career big-league innings, with a poor 16.1 percent strikeout rate and an equally unimpressive 11.6 percent walk rate. His 3.92 ERA in 39 innings for Syracuse is much better, though he's struck out just 12.4 percent of opposing batters. Jacob Rhame was optioned in a corresponding move.

July 18, 2019 07:00 PM
Mets' Walker Lockett: Set for spot start Saturday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Lockett will be recalled from Triple-A Syracuse on Saturday to start against the Giants, Anthony DiComo of MLB.com reports.

Lockett will be tasked with filling in for the injured Zack Wheeler (shoulder) on Saturday. The right-hander struggled in a pair of appearances for the big club earlier in the season -- allowing 10 runs across 7.2 innings -- so it would be unwise to expect much from him in Saturday's spot start.

July 17, 2019 08:56 PM
Mets' Walker Lockett: Candidate for spot start
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Lockett could be called up for a spot start this weekend, Anthony DiComo of MLB.com reports.

The Mets will need to fill in for Zack Wheeler (shoulder) for one turn through the rotation, and Lockett is the most likely candidate at Triple-A Syracuse. The right-hander struggled in two big-league starts earlier this year, but in his most recent outing for Syracuse on Saturday, Lockett gave up one earned run over 5.1 innings.

June 26, 2019 04:20 PM
Mets' Walker Lockett: Shipped back to minors
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Lockett was optioned to Triple-A Syracuse on Wednesday, Deesha Thosar of the New York Daily News reports.

With Noah Syndergaard (hamstring) slated to return Sunday, Lockett is no longer needed in the big-league rotation. The right-hander struggled in a pair of starts during his time with the Mets, allowing 10 runs on 10 hits while posting a 6:3 K:BB in 7.2 innings. Chris Mazza was summoned from the minors in a corresponding move.

Mets' Walker Lockett: Falters in sixth inning
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Lockett allowed four runs on five hits and two walks across 5.1 innings Tuesday at Philadelphia. He struck out four and did not factor in the decision.

Lockett gave up solo homers to Scott Kingery and Amed Rosario but otherwise held the Phillies in check through five frames. Things changed during the sixth inning when he was pulled after putting two runners on base, and the bullpen allowed both runs to score and was unable to hold the 5-2 lead. The 25-year-old figures to rejoin Triple-A Syracuse with Noah Syndergaard (hamstring) expected to return from the injured list this weekend.

June 22, 2019 11:52 AM
Mets' Walker Lockett: Starting Tuesday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Lockett will start Tuesday's game in Philadelphia, Mike Puma of the New York Post reports.

He coughed up six runs in 2.1 innings earlier this week against the Cubs, so Lockett shouldn't be viewed as a streaming option in mixed leagues. Noah Syndergaard (hamstring) is expected to return to the rotation next week, so Lockett should move back to the bullpen after Tuesday's start.

Mets' Walker Lockett: Surrenders six runs in season debut
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Lockett allowed six runs on five hits and one walk across 2.1 innings in a no-decision Thursday against the Cubs. He struck out two.

Lockett retired the first six hitters he faced, but he ran into a buzzsaw in the third inning when he allowed six runs on five hits and a walk before he was lifted with one out. While this was far from the ideal season debut for Lockett, his effectiveness in the early going looked promising, at the time. The 25-year-old was recalled to start in place of the injured Noah Syndergaard (hamstring), but the results don't bode well for another turn in the rotation.

June 20, 2019 04:56 PM
Mets' Walker Lockett: Summoned ahead of start
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Lockett was recalled from Triple-A Syracuse ahead of his scheduled start Thursday against the Cubs.

As expected, Lockett will enter the rotation in place of the injured Noah Syndergaard (hamstring). In four starts with Syracuse this season, Lockett owns a 3.28 ERA, 1.22 WHIP and 9:4 K:BB in 24.2 innings. In four appearances (three starts) for the Padres last season, he struggled to a 9.60 ERA, 2.13 WHIP and 12:10 K:BB in 15 innings. Whether Lockett sticks around for a second start will likely depend on his results Thursday. Daniel Zamora was sent back to the minors in a corresponding move.

Mets' Walker Lockett: Set for spot start Thursday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Lockett will be recalled from Triple-A Syracuse to start Thursday's game against the Cubs, Matt Ehalt of Yahoo Sports reports.

Lockett will join the big-league rotation for at least one turn with Noah Syndergaard (hamstring) on the injured list. The 25-year-old right-hander has been solid in four appearances since joining Syracuse, compiling a 3.28 ERA, 1.22 WHIP and 9:4 K:BBB in 24.2 innings. Whether he sticks around for a second start could depend on how he fares in Chicago on Thursday.
