Seth Lugo: Lugo (elbow) having medicals reviewed Tue

- The New York Mets pitching staff has suddenly become a little thinner as right-hander Seth Lugo has been diagnosed with a slight UCL tear in his pitching elbow per Marc Craig of Newsday. Adam Wainwright pitched with a torn UCL for six years although he ultimately needed Tommy John surgery, and Yankees ace Masahiro Tanaka has avoided surgery while pitching with a tear.

Instead, Lugo underwent a platelet rich plasma injection on Tuesday morning to promote healing. Lugo made three appearances in the WBC for Team Puerto Rico and even started in the championship game against the United States. There is no timetable for his return. He logged another 11.1 frames for the Mets in Spring Training, managing a 5.56 ERA and 1.50 WHIP. He compiled an impressive 2.67 ERA in 64 innings of work in 17 games in 2016.

Boeing, Iran Sign $3 Billion Airliner Deal
President Donald Trump heavily criticized the deal during his election campaign and has said he would like to see in renegotiated. The airline now operates a small mix fleet that consist of Airbus A320, A340, Boeing 737, 727, Fokker 100 and ATR-72 aircraft.

A 34th-round draft pick by the Mets in 2011, Lugo, along with Robert Gsellman, proved to be saviors in the rotation after Matt Harvey, Jacob deGrom and Steven Matz went down with season-ending injuries. The Brewers aren't expected to be contenders this year but seeing one of their most promising pitchers go down to injury early in the season certainly makes things tougher for them as they want to continue to develop their young core of talent over the season.

With two starters already down, the Mets have to be cautious with their remaining five like they were Monday when Noah Syndergaard was lifted after 86 pitches with a blister. The issue is considered minor, but the Mets are pushing his next start back from Saturday to Sunday to give him extra time to heal.
