Seth Lugo didn’t hold back when talking this past week when talking about the moves made by the New York Mets this winter. The addition of Michael Wacha and Rick Porcello essentially guarantees he’s seventh in line to start a game. The word “disappointed” was used by the best reliever in Queens when asked about the situation.
Lugo has been brilliant these past two seasons out of the Mets’ bullpen. He’s a uniquely talented reliever capable of going multiple innings on a given night. The only downside has been an inability to pitch multiple days in a row due to a partially torn UCL.
