Joey Lucchesi set to throw live BP Friday

Joey Lucchesi is scheduled to throw live batting practice Friday as he continues to rehab from Tommy John surgery.

Fantasy Impact

Lucchesi pitched in 11 games in 2021, posting a 4.46 ERA, 1.17 WHIP, .245 OBA, and a 9.63 K/9 ratio. The Mets have not provided much detail in their plans for Lucchesi once he is able to return. Look for the Mets to utilize multiple rehab appearances to build up the 29-year-old before he returns to the big leagues.

Joey Lucchesi will undergo Tommy John surgery

Joey Lucchesi will miss the remainder of the 2021 season and likely the beginning of the 2022 season as he recovers from Tommy John surgery in his elbow.

Fantasy Impact

After Lucchesi suffered the elbow injury, he seeked second opinions on his elbow in hopes he could avoid surgery but unfortunately will be unable to do so. Lucchesi had a 4.46 ERA with 41 strikeouts across his 38.1 innings in 2021.

Joey Lucchesi (elbow) likely needs Tommy John surgery

Mets LHP Joey Lucchesi underwent an MRI that revealed a significant tear in the UCL of his pitching elbow.

Fantasy Impact

Lucchesi is going to get a second opinion, but Tommy John surgery is certainly the likely outcome here. It's a blow to the Mets' pitching staff. Lucchesi had registered a 1.19 ERA over his past five starts.

Joey Lucchesi (elbow) placed on 10-day IL

The Mets placed Joey Lucchesi on the 10-day IL with left elbow inflammation on Saturday. The team reinstated Albert Almora Jr. from the IL to take Lucchesi's spot on the roster.

Fantasy Impact

Lucchesi pitched 5 1/3 shutout innings on Friday, but began experiencing elbow discomfort during the start. He had pitched well of late, with a 1.19 ERA over his last five starts after making a mechanical adjustment. It's unclear who will take Lucchesi's spot in the rotation or how long he'll be out, but the Mets should provide a timeline for his return in the coming days.

Joey Lucchesi pitches well with no run support

Joey Lucchesi allowed zero runs on four hits, two walks, and five strikeouts in five and one-third innings.

Fantasy Impact

Lucchesi allowed four runs in less than two innings to Tampa Bay on May 15th. It was later discovered he had been tipping his pitches. Since then, he's allowed three runs in 22 and 2/3 innings. He doesn't get a long leash, but he's pitched into the fifth inning in back-to-back starts and threw 90 pitches in this one. Buyer beware, Lucchesi has a career of 7.58 ERA and 1.85 WHIP the 3rd time through the order (48 and 2/3s innings).
