  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 
 Arguably no player benefits more from a shortened season than Maeda. He won't be moved to the bullpen, and he's posted must-start numbers over his career as a starter. The Twins will be less incline to have him throw fewer innings, too, as they don't have the depth the Dodgers had.
Michael Waterloo - FantasyPros
Lugo is a great option if you're looking to target middle relivers who can offer you strikeouts and good ratios.

Brendan Tuma - BettingPros
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
 Maeda should be the rare pitcher who benefits from a move to the American League. The Dodgers have moved him back and forth from the bullpen to the starting rotation to manipulate his innings and avoid paying him bonuses for years. Now, he should stick in the Twins' rotation, and approach the 175 innings he threw in 2016. Given that he had the highest swinging strike rate (14.6%) and chase rate (34.8%) of his career last year and will be moving to a division that saw three of the other four teams rank in the bottom seven in runs scored in 2019, consider the needle on Maeda moving up.
