  • Mets' Joey Lucchesi: Optioned to Triple-A

    The Mets optioned Lucchesi to Triple-A Syracuse on Sunday, Tim Britton of The Athletic reports.

    Lucchesi pitched Saturday for 2.1 innings against the Nationals before that game was suspended, and rules dictate that the Mets can demote the left-hander before the twin bill is resumed. Dennis Santana will have his contract selected from Syracuse in a corresponding move. Lucchesi could be back with the Mets at some point this summer either as a starter or multi-inning reliever.

  • Mets' Joey Lucchesi: Mets-Nats suspended due to rain

    Lucchesi's start Saturday against the Nationals has been suspended due to inclement weather, Abbey Mastracco of the New York Daily News reports.

    The game will be made up with a split doubleheader Sunday. Lucchesi threw 2.1 innings before the game was delayed for over three hours before being suspended, so he and Washington starter Trevor Williams will not be available for Sunday's twin billing.

  • Mets' Joey Lucchesi: Gives up three runs in four innings

    Lucchesi did not factor into the decision Sunday, allowing three runs on four hits and three walks over four innings in a 13-6 loss to the Rockies. He struck out four.

    Lucchesi gave up a solo home run to Randal Grichuk in the first and two runs in the third. The left-hander tossed a scoreless fourth and was at only 70 pitches, but he was replaced to start the fifth inning, as he was operating on three-days rest. After tossing seven shutout innings in his first appearance of the season (April 21 versus San Francisco), Lucchesi has allowed three or more runs in three straight outings and surrendered a home run in each of those contests. Carlos Carrasco's (elbow) rehab start has been delayed by an illness, so it looks like Lucchesi will get at least one more turn in the rotation.

  • Mets' Joey Lucchesi: Lifted after four innings in start

    Lucchesi didn't factor into the decision Wednesday in the Mets' 6-5 loss to the Tigers in the first game of a doubleheader after he gave up four runs on five hits over four innings. He struck out one and issued no walks.

    Though Lucchesi served up three extra-base hits (including two home runs) on the day, he was relatively efficient in the start, as he needed only 46 pitches to record 12 outs. Under normal circumstances, the Mets would have left Lucchesi in for at least another inning or two, but manager Buck Showalter told Tim Healey of Newsday after the game that the southpaw was pulled early so he could be better preserved for a start Sunday against the Rockies on three days' rest. Because of the doubleheader, the Mets will close the week with six games in five days, and Showalter apparently views Lucchesi on short rest as the team's best option for Sunday rather than delving into the minor-league ranks for a spot starter. The Mets are likely to scale back to a five-man rotation next week and Carlos Carrasco (elbow) also appears to be on track to return from the injured list, so Lucchesi could end up getting optioned back to Triple-A Syracuse immediately following Sunday's outing.

  • Mets' Joey Lucchesi: Tigers-Mets postponed Tuesday

    Lucchesi and the Mets will not face Detroit on Tuesday after the game was postponed due to inclement weather, Evan Woodbery of reports.

    The game will be made up as a split doubleheader between the Tigers and Mets on Wednesday. Lucchesi is virtually assured of starting one of those two contests after being scheduled to take the ball against Detroit on Tuesday.

  • Mets' Joey Lucchesi: Lined up for Tuesday

    Lucchesi will start for the Mets on Tuesday in Detroit, Joel Sherman of the New York Post reports.

    Sherman notes that the team has weather-related concerns for Tuesday's game which will result in pushing Max Scherzer back a day and moving Lucchesi up to Tuesday. The left-hander has made one excellent start and one so-so start since joining the Mets' rotation and makes for a pretty risky streaming option Tuesday even in a favorable matchup.

  • Mets' Joey Lucchesi: Comes down to earth

    Lucchesi did not factor into the decision Thursday, allowing three runs on five hits and two walks over 5.1 innings against the Nationals. He struck out three.

    Lucchesi turned in a middling performance Thursday after pitching seven scoreless innings against the Giants and striking out nine in his first appearance since June of 2021 last week. Though he only gave up one run directly via a solo homer by Alex Call, Lucchesi left two runners on base when he was yanked in the sixth, both of which ended up scoring. Considering the 30-year-old is coming off of Tommy John surgery and owns a career ERA of 4.17, fantasy managers should expect more outings like Thursday's rather than his previous showing in 2023.
