Seth Lugo News
New York Mets relief pitcher Seth Lugo picked up his first hold of the season on Saturday in the Mets 4-0 victory over the San Diego Padres. Lugo pitched a scoreless eighth inning allowing one hit while striking out two batters. It was just the second appearance of the season for Lugo, following his return from the 60-day injured list on June 2. With Trevor May struggling, Lugo immediately slots back into the eighth inning role setting up closer Edwin Diaz. Lugo will be in line to put up elite ratios and strikeouts, to go with a large number of holds going forward. He also could vulture some saves if Diaz struggles. Managers in leagues that reward holds should immediately add Lugo if he is, somehow, still available on the waiver wire.
The New York Mets made several roster moves on Monday prior to their night game against the Arizona Diamondbacks. Pete Alonso (wrist), Seth Lugo (elbow) and Kevin Pillar (nose) were all activated from the injured list. Outfielder Mason Williams was also added to the active roster. To clear space, the Mets DFA'd Cameron Maybin and Sam McWilliams and they optioned Khalil Lee, Patrick Mazeika and Sean Reid-Foley to Triple-A. While the Mets still have multiple players out of commission, the return of Alonso, Lugo and Pillar should help give the team a big boost.
New York Mets relief pitcher Seth Lugo (elbow) is expected to come off the 60-day injured list as soon as he is eligible Monday, when the Mets are scheduled to face the Diamondbacks in Arizona. Lugo would immediately become one of the best relievers in the Mets pen and a valuable commodity in fantasy leagues that value holds. Lugo had a down 2020 but was excellent in both 2018 and 2019, with a 70 and 65 ERA- in those years, respectively. He totaled nine saves and 32 holds in those seasons.
