Walker Lockett: Heading to KBO
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

The Blue Jays are expected to release Lockett after he agreed in principle on a contract with the Korea Baseball Organization's Doosan Bears, Jee-ho Yoo of the Yonhap News Agency reports.

Lockett's deal won't be finalized until he's able to complete a physical in South Korea, and that could still take some time due to pandemic-related travel restrictions. In any case, Lockett doesn't seem to believe his deal with Doosan will fall through, as he lists himself as a member of the Bears on his official Twitter account. The 26-year-old will be heading overseas for the first time in his career after spending parts of the last three seasons in the majors with the Padres, Mets and Mariners, compiling a 7.67 ERA over 54 innings.

Blue Jays' Walker Lockett: Joins Blue Jays
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Lockett was claimed off waivers by the Blue Jays on Monday.

He logged 16.1 innings (one start) with a 4.96 ERA and 1.53 WHIP last season with the Mets and Mariners. Lockett could work as a swing man and/or long reliever this season with Toronto.

Mariners' Walker Lockett: Claimed by Mariners
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Lockett was claimed off waivers by the Mariners on Tuesday.

The 26-year-old was designated for assignment by the Mets on Friday. Lockett has made just two appearances (one start) in 2020, amassing a 5.63 ERA over eight innings. Since he doesn't have any minor-league options remaining, Lockett will be added to the Mariners' 28-man active roster, likely working out of the bullpen.

Mets' Walker Lockett: DFA'd by Mets
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Lockett was designated for assignment by the Mets on Friday, Anthony DiComo of MLB.com reports.

Lockett tossed two scoreless innings in the first game as he earned the win in the first game of Friday's doubleheader against the Yankees. However, he'll now be cast off the 40-man roster to make room for David Peterson (shoulder), who was activated from the 10-day injured list in a corresponding move. The right-hander carries a 5.63 ERA over eight innings across two appearances (one start) this season.

Mets' Walker Lockett: Struggles in spot start
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Lockett allowed five runs on seven hits and two walks while striking out five over six innings in Friday's loss to the Phillies. He didn't factor into the decision.

The right-hander stepped in on short notice to start for the Mets on Friday since Jacob deGrom (finger) was unable to make his scheduled start. Lockett should return to the bullpen for now but could be an option to fill in as a starter again as the season progresses.

August 14, 2020 03:32 PM
Mets' Walker Lockett: Set for spot start Friday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Lockett is expected to start Friday's game against the Phillies in place of Jacob deGrom (finger), Mike Puma of the New York Post reports.

The team apparently informed Lockett on Thursday night to be ready if the regular starter was unable to pitch, and deGrom was then scratched Friday afternoon. Lockett had an 8.34 ERA, 1.72 WHIP and 16:6 K:BB over 22.2 innings during 2019, but the start will be his first appearance of 2020.

Mets' Walker Lockett: Returns from injured list
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Lockett (back) was activated from the 10-day injured list Tuesday, Tim Britton of The Athletic reports.

Lower-back discomfort cost Lockett the early part of the season. Seven of his 13 big-league games to date have been starts, and he could certainly earn some starts in a banged-up Mets rotation at some point this year, though his career 8.84 ERA in 37.2 major-league innings means the Mets probably prefer to try out other options.

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.

August 31, 2019 01:44 PM
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.

August 20, 2019 03:36 PM
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.

August 17, 2019 05:04 PM
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.

August 8, 2019 04:20 PM
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.

August 6, 2019 10:32 AM
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.

August 5, 2019 12:56 PM
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.

July 20, 2019 02:28 PM
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.
