The New York Mets trailed 1-0 for the majority of Wednesday night's game against the Atlanta Braves at SunTrust Park. In the sixth, however, they took the lead after scoring twice. Manager Mickey Callaway opted to go with reliever Seth Lugo, fresh off winning NL Reliever of the Month for July. The 29-year-old suffered a meltdown, managing just one out while getting charged with five runs on five hits and a walk. It was his worst performance in some time and ultimately what caused the Mets to suffer a second consecutive defeat in Atlanta and third consecutive altogether.
New York Mets relief pitcher Seth Lugo (shoulder) has been placed on the 10-day injured list. Lugo is dealing with right shoulder tendinitis, so this could be something that sidelines him for longer than 10 days. He was pitching well out of the bullpen, so it's shame to watch him go down. Hector Santiago has been called up and he'll join the Mets bullpen on Monday. He was pitching well in the minors, but probably won't have much fantasy value at all.
With three strikeouts to close out the ninth inning Tuesday night, New York Mets reliever Seth Lugo extended his scoreless appearance streak to nine as he continues to dominate the National League. During the streak he's also struck out 16 batters in 12 innings, lowering his ERA from 5.27 to 2.88. The 29-year-old has quickly established himself as a top reliever in the bullpen and is in prime position to serve as the setup man. While Lugo's role doesn't warrant much fantasy attention, his six holds already have him tied for fifth-most in the league.
