Mets' Seth Lugo: Picks up first save

Lugo earned the save Tuesday after tossing two scoreless innings. He allowed two hits and a walk while striking out three. With Edwin Diaz unavailable after pitching three of the last four games, Lugo came in to close out a one-run ballgame. He retired the side in the eighth, including a pair of strikeouts. After returning for the ninth, the right-hander worked around a pair of singles and a walk to finish off the win for the Mets, tossing 37 pitches in the process. Across six appearances this year, Lugo has compiled a 1.17 ERA and 1.17 WHIP.

Why Seth Lugo is the X-Factor in the Mets' Bullpen

The Mets' bullpen has been one of the biggest bright spots surrounding the team throughout the first two and a half months of the season. Whether it be Edwin Diaz, Miguel Castro, Robert Gsellman, Aaron Loup, Jeurys Familia or whoever else they hand the ball off to, everyone has been pulling their weight no matter what role.

Banged-up Mets hopeful to get Pete Alonso, Seth Lugo back Monday

It’s not quite the cavalry, but it’s at least a start. That certainly beats the status quo. The injury-ravaged Mets are hoping to activate top reliever Seth Lugo and power-hitting first baseman Pete Alonso on Monday at the start of a nine-game road trip against the Diamondbacks, Padres and Orioles.

Mets' Seth Lugo: Activated from IL

The Mets reinstated Lugo (elbow) from the 60-day injured list ahead of Monday's game against the Diamondbacks. New York optioned Sean Reid-Foley to Triple-A Syracuse to open up a spot in the bullpen for Lugo, who was one of three Mets to return from the IL for Monday's series opener. Lugo finished last season in a starting role for the Mets, but he'll likely serve as a late-inning, multi-inning option in 2021 now that he's made a recovery from February surgery to remove a loose body from his elbow. Over his four rehab outings at Triple-A prior to being activated, Lugo gave up three runs (one earned) while striking out five in 4.1 innings.
