The Mets’ starting rotation issues grew worse after a surprising move on Saturday.

Joey Lucchesi Placed on Injured List, Albert Almora Activated

The Mets activated Albert Almora Jr. from the 10-day injured list and placed Joey Lucchesi on the IL, the team announced between doubleheader games on Saturday. Luis Rojas said before Game 1 that Almora would likely be activated before Game 2, and that the corresponding move hadn’t been decided yet. Lucchesi’s placement on the IL, however, comes as a surprise. He was just starting to turn his season around, putting together a few nice outings after a rough start to the year.

New York Mets pitcher Joey Lucchesi has turned his season around with a 1.58 ERA in his last four starts. But according to a close family member, being the under dog is a role he has embraced throughout his whole life. "You aren't good enough (to reach the majors)," is...

Mets' Joey Lucchesi: Placed on injured list

Lucchesi was placed on the 10-day injured list with left elbow inflammation Saturday, Tim Healey of Newsday reports. Lucchesi was sharp in Friday's start against the Nationals, as he allowed four hits and two walks while striking out five in 5.1 innings. However, he apparently developed an elbow injury during the outing and will miss at least one turn through the rotation as a result. The severity of his injury isn't yet clear, but his move to the injured list makes room on the active roster for Albert Almora (shoulder), who was reinstated from the 10-day IL ahead of Saturday's nightcap.

Mets loosen leash on Joey Lucchesi, Edwin Diaz tumbles in walk-off loss to Nationals

After spending the past month making his plea to go deeper into games, the Mets finally gave Joey Lucchesi a longer leash. On Friday night, Lucchesi for the first time this season faced an opposing lineup the third time through the order. It was a big step for Lucchesi, who last faced a hitter for the third time while pitching for the Padres in 2019. The Mets, this season, had been reluctant to let him go deeper into his outings after a rough start to the year.

Joey Lucchesi wants Mets’ trust to face lineup third time around

Joey Lucchesi would like to think he has earned a shot at working through the batting order a third time, but will the Mets give him that opportunity?. The left-hander was removed at 72 pitches Sunday after allowing one earned run on four hits with six strikeouts and one walk over five innings. After the Mets’ bullpen squandered a one-run lead in a 7-3 loss to the Padres, he was asked about potentially working a third time through the lineup.

Mets' Joey Lucchesi: No-decision versus former team

Lucchesi allowed a run on four hits and a walk and struck out six in five innings in a no-decision versus San Diego on Sunday. Lucchesi got off to a rough start when he allowed a leadoff home run to Tommy Pham in the first inning, but the southpaw settled down after that. He was denied a win after San Diego rallied for the lead in the seventh. Lucchesi has a 5.18 ERA, 1.18 WHIP and 36:9 K:BB across 33 innings this year. He's given up just three runs in his last 17.1 innings, so he'll look to carry some momentum into his next start, which is expected to be in Washington during next weekend's series.
