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.

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.

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.

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.

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.

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.

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

Lockett could get called up to make a spot start while Noah Syndergaard (hamstring) is on the IL, Anthony DiComo of MLB.com reports.

The 25-year-old has been solid in four outings since joining Triple-A Syracuse, posting a 3.28 ERA and 1.22 WHIP in 24.2 innings, albeit with a weak 9:4 K:BB. The Mets will need to find fill-ins for Syndergaard twice before he's eligible to return as they don't have any off-days that would allow them to juggle their rotation, so while Wilmer Font is considered the top option for Thursday's game, Lockett could still be in the picture for a spot start next week -- particularly if Font struggles.

Mets' Walker Lockett: Makes 2019 debut
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Lockett (elbow) started for High-A St. Lucie in its 8-6 win over Fort Myers on Sunday, covering two innings and giving up four runs on five hits while striking out two.

Lockett was making his 2019 debut in affiliated ball after he was shut down shortly after spring training ended with a sore right elbow. The 25-year-old is eventually expected to join Triple-A Syracuse's rotation, but he may require a few additional outings at the lower levels of the minors to build up his pitch count.

Mets' Walker Lockett: Dealing with elbow soreness
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Lockett has yet to pitch for Triple-A Syracuse as he is nursing a sore right elbow, Matt Ehalt of The Bergen Record reports.

Lockett was sent to minor-league camp in mid-March, and how long he's been battling the injury remains unclear. The 24-year-old has no official timeline for his return.

March 11, 2019 09:36 AM
Mets' Walker Lockett: Sent to minors
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Lockett was optioned to minor-league camp.

The Mets sent a couple of rotation depth options to minors camp Monday, also dispatching Corey Oswalt. Lockett is big-league ready but will open the year at Triple-A.

Mets' Walker Lockett: Gets nod for spring opener
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Lockett will start the Mets' opening game of Grapefruit League play Saturday against the Braves, Anthony DiComo of MLB.com reports.

The right-hander was traded twice this offseason, first from San Diego to Cleveland in November, then to New York in January. This designation appears to simply be a means to get the Mets' major-league rotation lined up for the regular season, as Jacob deGrom, Noah Syndergaard and Zack Wheeler will follow Lockett in the spring rotation to start. Lockett seems to be ticketed for more time at Triple-A to start the season as he looks to build upon the 4.73 ERA and 118:33 K:BB he posted in 133 innings at Triple-A last season.

January 6, 2019 05:32 PM
Mets' Walker Lockett: Sent to New York
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Lockett was traded from the Indians to the Mets with infielder Sam Haggerty in exchange for catcher Kevin Plawecki on Sunday.

Lockett was just sent to Cleveland in November from San Diego, but he's on the move once again. The Mets already have a fair amount of other rotation options, so given the right-hander's middling results at Triple-A and rough showing in his major-league cup of coffee last season, he seems like a good bet to spend much of the season at Triple-A Syracuse.

November 20, 2018 03:36 PM
Indians' Walker Lockett: Dealt to Cleveland
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Lockett has been traded from the Padres to the Indians for an undisclosed minor leaguer, AJ Cassavell of MLB.com reports.

Lockett was shipped to the Indians to clear a spot on the 40-man roster. The 24-year-old appeared in four games (three starts) for the Padres last season, allowing 16 runs while striking out 12 over 15 innings. He figures to begin the 2019 campaign with Cleveland's Triple-A affiliate, the Columbus Clippers.

Padres' Walker Lockett: Returns to minors
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Lockett was optioned to Triple-A El Paso on Sunday.

Lockett allowed 10 runs on 14 hits over 9.1 innings during his two starts prompting his return to the Chihuahuas. Kazuhisa Makita was recalled from Triple-A in a corresponding move.

August 12, 2018 01:52 AM
Padres' Walker Lockett: Gives up five runs in loss
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Lockett (0-3) allowed five runs on five hits -- including two home runs -- over 4.1 innings in a loss to the Phillies on Saturday. He struck out two and walked two.

It was another ugly performance from Lockett, who has now given up four homers over 9.1 innings in his last two starts. He's also walked 10 in 15 total innings with the major-league team. While the Padres don't have anything to lose by continuing to deploy Lockett in the starting rotation, there's really not much here to evaluate, and with Jacob Nix pitching well in his debut, a move to the bullpen would not be surprising.

August 5, 2018 11:12 AM
Padres' Walker Lockett: Gives up five in five frames
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Lockett (0-2) picked up the loss Saturday against the Cubs, giving up five runs in five innings. He struck out six while allowing two walks and nine hits, two of which were homers.

Lockett was called on to make a spot start and failed to impress. All of the Cubs' damage came in the second inning, when Lockett allowed a pair of homers and six total hits. The 24-year-old has allowed 11 runs on 17 hits and eight walks in 10.2 big-league innings. He's not expected to remain in the rotation.

August 4, 2018 01:48 AM
Padres' Walker Lockett: Set for spot start
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Lockett will make a spot start Saturday against the Cubs in place of Joey Lucchesi (illness), Kevin Acee of The San Diego Union-Tribune reports.

Lucchesi was bumped back to Sunday due to a stomach bug. Lockett has allowed six runs in 5.2 innings for the Padres this season. striking out four while walking six. He has an unimpressive 4.92 ERA in 19 starts for Triple-A El Paso.
