Seth Lugo News
San Diego Padres right-hander Seth Lugo has declined his $7.5 million player option for the 2024 season on Thursday, according to sources. It doesn't come as a big surprise after Lugo had a very fine 2023 campaign in his first year in San Diego. He was a full-time starter and made a career-high 26 starts and posted a solid 3.57 ERA (3.83 FIP), 1.20 WHIP, 36 walks and a career-high 140 strikeouts for the Friars in 146 1/3 innings pitched. The 33-year-old should be able to find a much more lucrative long-term deal this winter after his performance in 2023, even at his age. Lugo will almost assuredly be looking for another situation where he will remain in the starting rotation all year long, but his versatility as a reliever should make him even more attractive to interested teams on the open market.
San Diego Padres right-hander Seth Lugo was hit hard by the Los Angeles Dodgers in a 13-7 loss on Monday. Lugo allowed eight runs on eight hits over 3 1/3 innings while striking out two and walking two in the lopsided loss. He cruised through three scoreless innings before the Dodgers' bats woke up and hung an eight-spot on Lugo in the fourth frame. Lugo wound up taking the loss, dropping his record to 4-6, to go along with a 4.19 ERA, 1.26 WHIP, and 90 strikeouts over 92 1/3 innings of work. The 33-year-old will look to bounce back in his next start, which is scheduled for Sunday against the Arizona Diamondbacks.
The San Diego Padres reinstated right-hander Seth Lugo (calf) from the 15-day injured list on Tuesday and designated right-hander Nabil Crismatt for assignment in a corresponding move. Lugo will make his return and make the start on the road on Tuesday against the San Francisco Giants. He will not be a recommended fantasy streamer against the streaking Giants, mainly because he hasn't pitched in the big leagues since May 16 and didn't go on a minor-league rehab assignment. Expect Lugo's pitch count to be limited in his first game back. In his eight starts for the Friars before going on the injured list, Lugo had gone 3-3 with a 4.10 ERA (3.95 FIP), 1.37 WHIP, 11 walks and 38 strikeouts in 41 2/3 innings pitched.
