Morning briefing: Several teams interested in Seth Lugo



Hello, Mets fans!

New York Post’s Mike Puma reports this Seth Lugo attracted interest from several teams in the early stages of free agency. Puma added that the Mets were not one of those teams.

Lugo has been a staple of the Mets bullpen since 2016. In 2022, after a shaky start to the season, he has become one of the most trusted pieces in the bullpen and has often been used interchangeably with Adam Ottavino in high leverage situations. In seven seasons with the team, Lugo achieved a 3.48 ERA in just under 500 innings.

The Mets bullpen at the start of the offseason is desolate, and Billy Eppler will be tasked with rebuilding it. According to Puma, Lugo may not be part of this process.
