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 
 It's not if Luzardo will pitch any innings for the A's this year, it's how how many? With the short season, will he be limited to four- to five-inning outings? He's a wild card with a bright future.
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
 It's going to be difficult to find a fantasy player who isn't salivating to draft Luzardo, particularly after an expected breakout season was derailed by injuries last year. Now, purportedly without an innings restriction, Luzardo looks ready to fulfill the potential he has oozed throughout his career. Armed with four elite pitches and the ability to sit at 96 miles per hour, the only thing that looks to be able to hold Luzardo down is health. Absent injury concerns, he should be a monster.
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.
Dan Harris - FantasyPros
 I want to move Lazardo further up these rankings because of his lights-out arsenal and pitching in Oakland helps those ratio's, but rookie innings limits are real and I am concerned that he won't pitch enough to reach his enormous ceiling. Guarantee me 210 innings pitched and he is a Top 40 Pick for me. I expect more like 130-150 and with some rookie struggles, that drops him down significantly. 2021 he will be hotter than Walker Buehler was.
