Mets win opener but news on Matz, Lugo a loss

by @ 6:37 pm. Filed under Uncategorized

The New York Mets rode Noah Syndergaard and one big inning to a 6-0 win in Monday’s opener vs the Atlanta Braves at Citi Field. Lucas Duda had the decisive blow with a 3 run double and Thor looked great thru 6. #34 developed a blister on a finger and will move back a day in the rotation yet should be ok. On the medical front, Steven Matz has been diagnosed with strained flexor tendon and will resume throwing in late April. Do not count on seeing the injury prone starter till June. Meanwhile, Seth Lugo got the bill for his great performance for the Puerto Rican team in the World Baseball Classic and it is not good. He has seen two doctors and has a partially torn UCL in his throwing elbow. Lugo will rest for 2 weeks and be reevaluated then. Suddenly, the Mets pitching depth is an issue. This team needs …Matt… GULP…Harvey to pitch well. #HUGE Not a fan but he is on the team. #LGM
