Mets' Seth Lugo: Bounces back with quality start
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Lugo evened his record at 3-3 during the Mets' 5-2 win Tuesday, limiting the Rays to two runs (one earned) on four hits and a walk while striking out seven in 6.1 innings.

After failing to escape the second inning while serving up four home runs in his last start Sept. 17 against the Phillies, Lugo bounced back in impressive fashion in his penultimate outing of 2020. Other than surrendering another long ball to Willy Adames in the second inning, Lugo was otherwise sharp with his command in the 95-pitch appearance. He's scheduled to make his final start in the Mets' season finale Sunday in Washington.

Mets' Seth Lugo: Knocked around in short start
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Lugo allowed six runs on eight hits and no walks in 1.2 innings against Philadelphia on Thursday, striking out three. He did not factor in the decision.

Lugo entered the contest having posted a laudable 2.65 ERA over 17 innings since joining the starting rotation Aug. 25, but he was unable to tame the Phillies' bats Thursday. The right-hander surrendered four home runs in the brutal outing, two of which came off the bat of Bryce Harper. In only 1.2 innings of work, Lugo yielded a season-worst eight hits and saw his season ERA balloon to 4.34. He'll try to rebound at home against Tampa Bay on Tuesday.

Mets' Seth Lugo: Handed loss Saturday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Lugo (2-3) allowed three runs on seven hits and a walk while striking out five across 5.1 innings Friday as he took the loss against the Blue Jays.

Lugo was able to maneuver through the Blue Jays' lineup the first time around, allowing one hit through the first nine batters, but he could not replicate the same success a second time. Lugo allowed six of his seven hits from the fourth inning on as the Blue Jays chased him for a run in each of the fourth, fifth and sixth frames. Saturday was Lugo's first loss in four attempts since the Mets decided to convert him to a starter. The 30-year-old owns a 2.63 ERA and 36:7 K:BB across 27.1 innings. He'll look to get back in the win column Friday against a surging Atlanta Braves team.

Mets' Seth Lugo: Grabs win, avoids injury
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Lugo gave up one earned run over five innings and picked up the win Saturday against the Phillies. Per Anthony DiComo of, Lugo underwent a precautionary X-ray on his right hand after being struck by a batted ball on the final pitch of his outing, but the exam was negative.

Lugo was on top of his game Saturday, allowing just four hits while striking out eight batters and walking two. More importantly, he set season highs with 81 pitches and five innings, which allowed him to stay in the game long enough to qualify for the win. Lugo said he was "not even worried about" the injury when asked, so he should avoid missing any time. His pitch count has steadily increased since the Mets moved him to the rotation, and he should be able to tack on a few more his next time out.

Mets' Seth Lugo: Fans seven in start
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Lugo allowed one run on four hits and two walks over 3.2 innings Sunday, striking out seven in the loss to the Yankees in the second game of the doubleheader. He did not factor in the decision.

The Mets let Lugo throw 60 pitches Sunday, going well past his previous season-high of 39 pitches in his last outing. The lone run he allowed came from a solo shot by Tyler Wade in the third inning. Assuming he stays in the rotation, Lugo should face the Phillies at home next weekend.

Mets' Seth Lugo: Three perfect innings
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Lugo struck out five across three perfect innings but did not factor in the decision in the second game of Tuesday's doubleheader versus the Marlins.

Lugo did well as well as anyone could hope in his first start of 2020. The 30-year-old, who hadn't started a game since 2018, lowered his ERA to 2.03 with a 0.75 WHIP and 16 strikeouts across 13.1 innings this season. It was his 10th appearance overall, but Lugo is expected to stick in the rotation going forward. His next start lines up for Sept. 2 in Baltimore.

Mets' Seth Lugo: Starting Game 2
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Lugo is starting Game 2 of Tuesday's doubleheader against the Marlins, Anthony DiComo of reports.

This will technically be a bullpen game, but with the Mets having to play nine games over the next six days, the Mets would obviously like Lugo to go as deep as possible in this outing. He has a 2.61 ERA, 0.97 WHIP and 11:2 K:BB in 10.1 innings.

Mets' Seth Lugo: Start vs. Marlins postponed
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Lugo's scheduled start against the Marlins on Thursday was postponed due to a positive COVID-19 test, Jon Heyman of MLB Network reports.

Lugo's first start of the season will have to wait, as the Mets reportedly have a pair of positive COVID-19 cases, resulting in the postponement of Thursday's series finale. It remains to be seen how the Mets will adjust their rotation moving forward.

Mets' Seth Lugo: Entering rotation Thursday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Lugo will start Thursday's game against the Marlins and remain in the starting rotation going forward, Tim Healey of Newsday reports.

The 30-year-old appeared to have a solid hold on the closer's role with a 2.61 ERA, 0.97 WHIP and 11:2 K:BB through 10.1 innings while converting three of five save opportunities, but he'll now shift into Steven Matz's spot in the rotation. Lugo has operated as a multi-inning reliever all season, but he hasn't reached the 20-pitch mark since July 27, so it figures to take some time before he gets fully stretched out for a starter's workload. The Mets haven't announced their plans for the back end of the bullpen, but Edwin Diaz is the likely candidate to operate as the closer, since he's bounced back with a 2.53 ERA and 24:5 K:BB this season.

Mets' Seth Lugo: Charged with loss Friday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Lugo (1-2) allowed one run on three hits and no walks while striking out one as he only recorded one out and was charged with the loss Friday against the Phillies.

Lugo came in during a tie game in the ninth inning Friday, but he was unable to quell the Phillies' bats and was charged with his second loss of 2020. The right-hander has converted on three of his five save opportunities this season while carrying a 2.89 ERA over 9.1 innings.

Mets' Seth Lugo: Picks up third save
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Lugo fired one scoreless inning as he earned the save Sunday against the Marlins. He allowed no runs and one walk while striking out one.

With Sunday's performance, Lugo now hasn't allowed a hit over his last four innings, and his walk against the Marlins was the first baserunner he's allowed during that time. The right-hander blew two save chances to end the month of July, but he still appears to have the trust of manager Luis Rojas in ninth-inning situations. The Mets' closer situation could become cloudier if Edwin Diaz continues to pitch well, but Lugo has been quite effective while handling closing duties recently.

Mets' Seth Lugo: Secures two-inning save
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Lugo retired all six batters he faced and recorded two strikeouts to earn the save during Wednesday's 3-1 win over the Nationals.

The right-hander was pounding the strikezone Wednesday, as he delivered 15 of his 19 pitches for strikes and made quick work of Washington. The closer's role remains in flux following Edwin Diaz's rough start to the season, but Lugo is in prime position to potentially secure the job with his 2.57 ERA, 0.57 WHIP and 7:1 K:BB through seven innings.

Mets' Seth Lugo: Charged with loss Friday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Lugo (1-1) allowed one run on one hit and one walk while failing to record a strikeout over 0.2 innings as he was charged with the loss Friday against Atlanta.

Lugo was called on in a jam in the bottom of the eighth inning Friday and nearly got the Mets out of it, but he allowed a two-run double to Travis d'Arnaud that brought in two runs and put the 30-year-old in line for the loss and the blown save. Despite Friday's loss, the righty still carries fantasy upside as he's in the conversation to take over closing duties for the Mets once again this year.

Mets' Seth Lugo: Could move into closer role
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Manager Luis Rojas announced Thursday that there will be discussions regarding Edwin Diaz's usage in high leverage situations moving forward, Anthony DiComo of reports. Lugo is one option to step into the closer role.

Lugo surrendered a solo home run in his latest outing against the Red Sox, but that marks the right-hander's lone blemish in 4.1 innings pitched on the campaign. If the Mets do indeed decide to move away from Diaz in the ninth, Lugo and Jeurys Familia will be the top candidates to receive the bulk of save opportunities in the coming weeks.

Mets' Seth Lugo: Collects four-out save
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Lugo earned his first save of the season, pitching a perfect 1.1 innings with one strikeout in Monday's 7-4 win over the Red Sox.

Lugo was able to finish the eighth inning with a runner on first by striking out Christian Vazquez. The right-hander then induced three groundouts to complete the save in the ninth. With regular closer Edwin Diaz faltering in his last outing Saturday versus the Braves, Lugo's strong start to 2020 could see him in the mix for more saves going forward.

Mets' Seth Lugo: Picks up win in relief
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Lugo (1-0) tossed two scoreless innings Friday, allowing one run and no walks while striking out three as he earned the win against Atlanta.

Jacob deGrom went five innings without allowing a run Friday, and Lugo was able to preserve the shutout over two innings of relief. He picked up the win after the Mets put the only run of the game on the board in the bottom of the seventh inning. The 30-year-old could be put into similar situations over the first few weeks as the starters build up to a full workload. The right-hander picked up seven wins and six saves over 61 relief appearances last season while posting a 2.70 ERA and 0.90 WHIP.

Mets' Seth Lugo: Could fill flexible bullpen role
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Lugo could be the pitcher the Mets call on most early in the season if any starters are on limited pitch counts, Tim Britton of The Athletic reports.

While the team doesn't intend to make any drastic changes to its current five-man rotation, GM Brodie Van Wagenen suggested Monday that the Mets could be a lot more flexible with bullpen roles. "We also have some high-velocity, high-stuff bullpen guys," he said. "We may see shorter starts from some pitchers early on in the year, and we may see bullpen arms in pitching situations earlier than maybe they otherwise have been accustomed to. We're going to use (the bullpen) with the mindset that every out counts, not just every inning." Lugo, as the one "high-velocity, high-stuff" reliever used to tossing multiple innings in an outing, seems the most likely candidate to move out of a setup role and instead take the mound in the middle innings if someone like Steven Matz or Michael Wacha exits early. Such usage would make Lugo -- who recorded seven wins, six saves and 21 holds in 60 appearances last season -- a prime candidate to vulture wins during the shortened campaign.

Mets' Seth Lugo: Return to action goes smoothly
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Lugo did not feel his fractured left pinkie toe during his return to the mound Monday against the Marlins, Justin Toscano of The Bergen Record reports.

Lugo threw a scoreless inning, striking out one batter, in his first taste of Grapefruit League action. He should have time to build up to regular-season shape by Opening Day given that he's entering the season as a reliever.

Mets' Seth Lugo: Spring debut coming Monday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Lugo (toe) is scheduled to make his Grapefruit League debut Monday against the Marlins, Tim Healey of Newsday reports.

Lugo's spring debut has been delayed by a fractured left pinkie toe, but the injury doesn't look like anything that will prevent him from being ready for Opening Day. The right-hander already proved his health by completing a 29-pitch simulated game Thursday without incident.

Mets' Seth Lugo: Fares well in sim game
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Lugo (toe) completed a 29-pitch simulated game Thursday and indicated he felt good afterward, Justin Toscano of The Bergen Record reports.

Per Mike Puma of the New York Post, the Mets gave Lugo the option of pitching in Thursday's Grapefruit League road game against the Cardinals, but the veteran reliever chose to stay behind at the team facility to face hitters rather than making the trip to Jupiter, Fla. Lugo will presumably make his spring debut at some point within the next few days, but the fact that he was able to pitch in a competitive environment indicates that he's ready to go after fracturing his left pinkie toe early on during camp.
