  Mets reliever Seth Lugo will miss the start of the Grapefruit League season due to a fractured left pinkie toe, manager Luis Rojas said Tuesday. Lugo injured his toe banging into an object in his Port St. Lucie home on Monday night. “No major concern,” Rojas said. “It’s going to take like three days probably off throwing, and obviously we’ll ramp him up from there.”

Notes 
 A short season could benefit Martinez, who could be a Top 40 pitcher.
Michael Waterloo - FantasyPros
Lugo is a great option if you're looking to target middle relivers who can offer you strikeouts and good ratios.
Michael Waterloo - FantasyPros
 Martinez's shoulder weakness pushed him to the bullpen, where he eventually successfully took over for Jordan Hicks as the closer for the Cardinals. His 2020 role remains in flux, as it appears he'll be given an opportunity to win back the starting role he so covets, but his success is far from assured. Martinez should provide value in the rotation or the bullpen, so given that you won't need to spend much draft capital to get him anyway, don't shy away.
Dan Harris - FantasyPros
Lugo has been a quality reliever for two seasons now, and he found his way into the closer's role late last year. Edwin Diaz should have the ninth-inning role for the Mets to start, but if he struggles again, Lugo could sneak back into the job. Lugo is worth drafting for his ratios alone, but the potential for saves makes him an ideal candidate for a late-round selection.
