Seth Lugo continues to be Mets only reliable reliever

September 10, 2019

New York Mets – Seth Lugo had another dominant performance, striking out four hitters over two perfect innings. We’ve talked about his durability before, and he’ll still need regular rest even as the Mets attempt a last ditch run for the Wild Card, but he’s the clear top option here; we’re removing his asterisk.

Updated hierarchy: Lugo | Diaz | Wilson.


1. Edwin Diaz/Justin Wilson – Seth Lugo will likely get a day off after throwing 2 innings on Monday.

1. Ryne Stanek – If Jose Urena goes today, he’ll likely get Wednesday off.
