  • Mets' Joey Lucchesi: Immediate promotion unlikely

    Lucchesi can't be added to the 26-man roster until April 12 without an associated injured list move, and he likely isn't an option to replace Tylor Megill (shoulder) in the rotation when the Mets next need a fifth starter April 9, Will Sammon of The Athletic reports.

    The Mets are caught in a bind when it comes to their pitching staff. With Yohan Ramirez facing a two-game suspension, the team elected to add Reed Garrett to the roster for bullpen depth when Megill landed on the IL, which blocks Lucchesi or Jose Butto from being promoted to plug the immediate hole in the rotation. That gives prospects Christian Scott and Mike Vasil, who aren't yet on the 40-man roster, a leg up to take Megill's spot. The Mets are also said to have interest in signing Julio Teheran. Lucchesi could be added late in the month, however -- New York plays 13 games in 13 days starting Friday and will likely need a sixth starter to get through that stretch.

  • Mets' Joey Lucchesi: Likely to fill in for Megill?

    Lucchesi is likely to absorb the rotation spot vacated by Tylor Megill (shoulder), Michael Mayer of MetsmerizedOnline.com reports.

    Lucchesi permitted just one unearned run and struck out five over five innings in his season debut with Triple-A Syracuse on March 29. He also had a 2.89 ERA in nine starts for the Mets last season, although that came with a 1.31 WHIP and 32:17 K:BB across 46.2 frames. Jose Butto is another option to fill in for Megill. Whoever takes Megill's spot will likely start in Cincinnati this weekend.

  • Mets' Joey Lucchesi: Sent to Triple-A

    Lucchesi was optioned to Triple-A Syracuse on Friday, Anthony DiComo of MLB.com reports.

    The 30-year-old appeared to have a decent chance of making the Mets' Opening Day rotation after Kodai Senga (shoulder) was shut down, but Lucchesi came into camp behind most of the organization's pitchers and sat below 90 mph with his fastball during his lone game appearance of spring training. The left-hander pitched to a 2.89 ERA in nine starts for the Mets last season but is poised to open 2024 at Triple-A.

  • Mets' Joey Lucchesi: Competing for rotation spot

    Lucchesi will be in the mix for the fifth spot in the Mets' rotation following the injury to Kodai Senga (shoulder), Tim Healey of Newsday reports.

    Lucchesi fared well in nine starts for the Mets last season in securing a 2.89 ERA, although that came with a 1.31 WHIP and 32:17 K:BB across 46.2 frames. Tylor Megill is likely Lucchesi's chief competition for the gig, with Jose Butto and Max Kranick also in the mix.

  • Mets' Joey Lucchesi: Avoids arbitration with Mets

    The Mets and Lucchesi avoided arbitration by agreeing to a one-year, $1.65 million contract Thursday, Joel Sherman of the New York Post reports.

    Lucchesi was arbitration-eligible for the second time. The southpaw posted a 2.89 ERA in nine starts for the Mets in 2023, although that came with a 32:17 K:BB over 46.2 frames. Lucchesi could be used as a swingman in 2024.

  • Mets' Joey Lucchesi: Optioned to Syracuse

    The Mets optioned Lucchesi to Triple-A Syracuse on Thursday.

    Lucchesi finished his season on a high note Wednesday, scattering two runs over six-plus innings in a win over the Marlins. The left-hander registered an overall 2.89 ERA across 46.2 major-league innings this year and should be a strong consideration for the Opening Day rotation in 2024 with an improved health outlook.

  • Mets' Joey Lucchesi: Stays undefeated

    Lucchesi (4-0) picked up the win in the first game of Wednesday's doubleheader against the Marlins, giving up two runs on seven hits and two walks over six-plus innings in an 11-2 rout. He struck out three.

    The southpaw took a shutout into the seventh inning before serving up back-to-back doubles to Jazz Chisholm and Nick Fortes to lead off the frame and getting the hook, but the Mets were already comfortably ahead 6-0 at that point. Lucchesi has been sharp in September, posting a 1.93 ERRA, 1.34 WHIP and 10:7 K:BB through 18.2 innings over three starts, and he could be positioning himself for a full-time rotation spot in 2024, assuming he can stay healthy.

  • Mets' Joey Lucchesi: Tuesday's start postponed

    Lucchesi won't start as scheduled Tuesday because the game was postponed due to unplayable field conditions.

    The Mets and Marlins will play a doubleheader Wednesday, and Lucchesi figures to start one of the two games. The 30-year-old lefty has given up four runs (two earned) over 12.2 innings across his two starts in September.

  • Mets' Joey Lucchesi: Starting first game of doubleheader

    Lucchesi will start the first game of Wednesday's doubleheader against the Marlins.

    Lucchesi had been slated to start Tuesday before that contest was rained out, so he'll get the ball for the makeup game instead. Kodai Senga will make his regularly scheduled start in Wednesday's nightcap.

  • Mets' Joey Lucchesi: Two earned runs in no-decision

    Lucchesi did not factor into the decision Tuesday, allowing three runs (two earned) on six hits and two walks over 5.2 innings against Miami. He struck out five.

    Lucchesi followed up last week's impressive performance with another solid start in Miami on Tuesday, surrendering a run-scoring double in the third, an unearned run on his own throwing error in the fifth and an RBI single in the sixth. In his two outings since being recalled from Triple-A, the lanky lefty has posted a 1.42 ERA, 1.26 WHIP and 7:5 K:BB across 12.2 innings. Assuming he remains in the Mets' six-man rotation, Lucchesi is tentatively scheduled for a mid-week rematch with the Marlins in his next start.

  • Mets' Joey Lucchesi: Remains in rotation

    Lucchesi is scheduled to make his next start Tuesday against the Marlins in Miami.

    The Mets appear content to close out the season with a six-man rotation that includes Lucchesi, who was called up from Triple-A Syracuse last week. While making his first appearance for the Mets since Aug. 18 this past Wednesday, Lucchesi earned a win over the Diamondbacks after striking out two and allowing one unearned run on five hits and three walks over seven innings. He now holds a 2.83 ERA, 1.26 WHIP and 24:13 K:BB in 35 innings in the big leagues on the season.

  • Mets' Joey Lucchesi: Earns victory after call-up

    Lucchesi (3-0) notched the win over Arizona on Wednesday, allowing an unearned run on five hits and three walks while striking out two batters over seven innings.

    Lucchesi got the chance to start after spending most of the past month in the minors and took advantage of the opportunity, keeping the Diamondbacks scoreless through seven frames. He exited after the first two batters he faced in the eighth reached base -- one on a walk and the other on an error -- but the run that was charged to him after his departure was unearned. This was Lucchesi's second seven-inning outing of the campaign, with his other coming in his first start April 21 against San Francisco. The southpaw has pitched pretty well when given the chance in the majors this season, posting a 2.83 ERA, 1.26 WHIP and 24:13 K:BB over 35 frames, and he could stick in the rotation down the stretch with the Mets essentially out of the playoff race.

  • Mets' Joey Lucchesi: Recalled for start Wednesday

    Lucchesi was recalled from Triple-A Syracuse ahead of his start Wednesday against the Diamondbacks.

    Lucchesi is expected to finish out the season in the Mets' rotation and might have fantasy streaming appeal in certain matchups. The left-hander threw 87 pitches in his last start for Syracuse and carries a respectable 3.54 ERA, 1.29 WHIP and 22:10 K:BB in 28 major-league innings (six starts) this year.

  • Mets' Joey Lucchesi: Expected to start Wednesday

    Lucchesi is expected to be called up from Triple-A Syracuse to start Wednesday's game versus the Diamondbacks, Anthony DiComo of MLB.com reports.

    Lucchesi should get multiple turns in the rotation before the regular season comes to an end, and it can serve as an audition of sorts for a starting role as the Mets begin to make plans for the 2024 campaign. The left-hander has posted a 3.54 ERA, 1.29 WHIP and 22:10 K:BB in 28 major-league innings (six starts) this season.

  • Mets' Joey Lucchesi: Set to become sixth starter

    Lucchesi is expected to be recalled from Triple-A Syracuse at some point in September and join the Mets' rotation, Tim Britton and Will Sammon of the Athletic report.

    The exact date of the southpaw's promotion isn't yet clear. Lucchesi was optioned to Syracuse on Aug. 19 and isn't eligible to rejoin the big-league roster until Sept. 3, barring another player landing on the IL. The Mets plan to shift to a six-man rotation when they begin a stretch of 17 games in 17 days on Sept. 8, however, and may delay Lucchesi's promotion until then. He's performed well in six spot starts so far this season, posting a 3.54 ERA, 1.29 WHIP and 22:10 K:BB in 28 MLB innings.

  • Mets' Joey Lucchesi: Returns to minors

    The Mets optioned Lucchesi to Triple-A Syracuse on Saturday.

    Despite looking strong and earning the win during his start Friday against St. Louis with 5.2 scoreless innings, Lucchesi will return to the minors. Vinny Nittoli will take Lucchesi's spot on the active roster in order to strengthen the Mets' bullpen.

  • Mets' Joey Lucchesi: Turns in scoreless outing

    Lucchesi (2-0) yielded four hits and two walks over 5.2 scoreless innings Friday, striking out five and earning a win over the Cardinals.

    Lucchesi was promoted for his first MLB appearance since May 13 and looked sharp. He coughed up just one extra-base hit and, at one point, retired 12 consecutive batters. He lowered his ERA to 3.54 through 28 frames in the majors. Lucchesi's outing was impressive, but it remains to be seen if the Mets will give him another turn in the rotation.
