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 MLB.com 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.

Mets' Seth Lugo: Game action next up
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Lugo (toe) completed a live batting practice session Sunday and says he'll next pitch in Grapefruit League games, Justin Toscano of The Bergen Record reports.

Lugo has been slowed early in spring training by a fractured left pinky toe, but he's apparently ready for games after his first spring action against live hitters Sunday. The 30-year-old figures to retake the mound sometime this week and should not have any issues being ready for Opening Day.

Mets' Seth Lugo: Live BP session on tap
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Lugo (toe) is scheduled to throw live batting practice on Sunday, Anthony DiComo of MLB.com reports.

Lugo, who has been slowed to start camp due to a broken pinky toe, is on track to face live hitters for the first time this spring since suffering the injury. If all goes well, the right-hander should be cleared for game action shortly thereafter.

Mets' Seth Lugo: Back on mound Saturday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Lugo (toe) was able to throw off a mound Saturday, Mike Puma of Thew New York Post reports.

"All the pitches were there, executing and locating," said the Mets right-hander after the bullpen session. Lugo will proceed to live batting practice, and assuming no setbacks with his fractured pinky toe, he should be ready for game action next week.

Mets' Seth Lugo: Nearing return to mound work
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Lugo (toe) expects to throw off a mound over the weekend, Mike Puma of the New York Post reports.

Lugo suffered a fractured pinky toe in his hotel early in the week, but the issue was never considered particularly serious. He's already thrown off flat ground, and by returning to the mound over a month before Opening Day, it seems as though he'll have plenty of time to build up for the start of the regular season.

Mets' Seth Lugo: Throws from 120 feet
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Lugo (toe) threw from 120 feet Wednesday, Justin Toscano of The Bergen Record reports.

Lugo fractured his pinky toe in his hotel Tuesday. The team doesn't appear to be overly concerned, and though he doesn't yet have a timeline for his return, he doesn't yet have a timeline for return.

Mets' Seth Lugo: Suffers fractured toe
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Lugo fractured his left pinky toe in his hotel, Justin Toscano of The Bergen Record reports.

The issue doesn't appear to be major, as Lugo will only be shut down from throwing for three days. It appears as though he'll have plenty of time to get up to speed by Opening Day.

Mets' Seth Lugo: Avoids arbitrator
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Lugo and the Mets won't be heading to arbitration, as they agreed to terms on a one-year, $2 million deal Friday, Mike Puma of the New York Post reports.

Lugo had a strong 2019 campaign, his first spent entirely in relief. He struck out 33.1 percent of opposing batters en route to a 2.70 ERA and six saves. Reports from earlier in the offseason suggested he was a candidate to move back into the rotation, but the signings of Rick Porcello and Michael Wacha likely make that unnecessary.

Mets' Seth Lugo: Rotation candidate for 2020
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Lugo will be a candidate for a rotation spot next season, Tim Healey of Newsday reports.

Lugo pitched exclusively out of the bullpen for the first time in 2019 and thrived, saving six games with a 2.70 ERA. He struck out 33.1 percent of opposing batters, smashing his previous career high of 25.1 percent. His numbers would likely decline somewhat if he returns to pitching longer outings, but there's reason to believe he's a better pitcher than he was when he was last a full-time starter back in 2017, when he finished the season with a 4.71 ERA. Lugo's role will likely be determined in part by what starters the Mets are able to bring in this offseason.

Mets' Seth Lugo: Shut down after save No. 6
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Lugo picked up the save Friday night against Atlanta after allowing two hits while striking out two over two scoreless innings. The Mets announced after the game that he won't pitch in the final two games of the regular season, Justin Toscano of The Bergen Record reports.

Lugo put up a pair of zeros to close out Friday's ballgame, ensuring a 4-2 victory for his club. The 29-year-old will end his season with a 2.70 ERA, a 0.90 WHIP, and a 104:16 K:BB over 80 frames in 2019.

Mets' Seth Lugo: Dominant in eighth inning
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Lugo (6-3) struck out the side during a scoreless eighth inning Saturday against the Dodgers, picking up the win when the Mets took the lead in the bottom of the frame.

Fantasy owners may be most interested in Lugo at the moment due to his potential for saves down the stretch, though it's hard to complain about a win and three strikeouts. Justin Wilson wound up recording the save.
