Mets' Seth Lugo: Officially reinstated

Lugo was reinstated from the paternity list Thursday, Tim Healey of Newsday reports. Lugo has been away from the team since Monday for the birth of his child and was expected back in time for the team's weekend series against the Marlins. Now that he's officially back, Lugo should return to a setup role, working in front of Edwin Diaz. On the season, Lugo has maintained a 3.81 ERA, 1.20 WHIP and 27:7 K:BB across 28.1 innings.

Dominant Seth Lugo is now just somebody that we used to know

The Seth Lugo love affair with New York Mets fans isn’t as untamed as it was a few years ago. Lugo was embraced in 2018 and 2019 as one of the most specialized weapons out of the bullpen in recent memory. During a time when Mets relievers struggled mightily, we could always count on Lugo to get through one, or two, or possibly even three innings.

Mets' Seth Lugo: Due back Friday

Mets manager Buck Showalter said he expects Lugo (personal) to be activated from the paternity list prior to Friday's game in Miami, Mike Puma of the New York Post reports. After being placed on the list Monday, Lugo will be away from the team for a third straight game Wednesday in Houston while he spends time with his wife and newborn child. Since players on the paternity list can spend a maximum of three days away from their teams, Lugo will likely be formally activated Thursday, which is an off day for the Mets.

Seth Lugo ‘overthrew’ amid rare closing opportunity in Dodgers meltdown

SAN DIEGO — Seth Lugo’s ninth-inning meltdown against the Dodgers could have been a product of the situation.  In assessing the right-hander’s woes from the previous day, when Lugo surrendered two runs in the ninth inning for a blown save, pitching coach Jeremy Hefner on Monday indicated the reliever was overthrowing, which might have had a direct correlation to receiving a rare closing opportunity.  “It’s human nature,” Hefner said before the Mets beat the Padres, 11-5 at Petco Park, but the bullpen gave up three runs after stellar outing from Carlos Carrasco. “You are trying to close out a major league baseball...

Mets' Seth Lugo: Collects second save

Lugo gave up a hit in a scoreless ninth inning Tuesday to record his second save of the season in the second game of a doubleheader sweep of Atlanta. Edwin Diaz notched the save in the matinee while Adam Ottavino picked up a hold, leaving closing duties in the nightcap to Lugo. Lugo has reeled off six straight scoreless appearances, lowering his ERA to 3.48 and his WHIP to 1.35, and he also has four holds in addition to his pair of saves from his 11 appearances. The 32-year-old remains one of the Mets' primary setup options, but should anything happen to Diaz, Lugo would likely step into the closer role.

Mets' Seth Lugo: Registers first save

Lugo saved a 6-5 victory over Arizona on Friday, allowing one walk with two strikeouts in the 10th inning. After closer Edwin Diaz faltered in the ninth inning, Lugo was brought in for the 10th, when New York took the lead and delivered with a quick and easy inning. He appears locked into the setup role despite a high 5.68 ERA, which is mostly the result of one poor outing.

Seth Lugo implosion, quiet bats doom Mets in loss to Diamondbacks

The Mets’ lineup took most of Saturday afternoon off and the bullpen was called upon early. That proved to be a bad combination a day after a rollicking rout in their home opener. Without much offense to speak of and with Seth Lugo imploding in the seventh inning, the Mets fell to the Diamondbacks, 3-2, at Citi Field in front of 37,935 on a breezy afternoon. The Mets’ lineup had been among the best in baseball so far this season, but managed just five hits against Zac Gallen and five relievers and didn’t advance a runner past first base until Starling Marte’s...

Seth Lugo: Mets’ latest bullpen meltdown not a sign of things to come

PHILADELPHIA — A season ago, Seth Lugo routinely would not feel like himself. There were good days and bad days, and often he wasn’t sure how his arm would bounce back. “I felt like I was cut open last year,” said Lugo, whose throwing elbow literally was cut open shortly before the campaign began to remove bone spurs that had bothered him for years. A season later, Lugo is throwing a bit harder and a bit freer, even if the immediate taste in his mouth following Monday’s bullpen meltdown was not pleasant. The Mets righty will be just fine and so will the...
