Mets' Seth Lugo has partially torn UCL in elbow

Newsday reports Lugo has a "slight tear" of the ulnar collateral ligament in his elbow. A timetable for his return has not been determined, according to the team. While Lugo was likely destined to start 2017 in the bullpen, rather than in the rotation, he was a prime candidate to fil in as needed for the Mets' oft-injured rotation.

Instead, Lugo underwent a platelet rich plasma injection on Tuesday morning to promote healing. He's encountered a couple health issues since then, but nothing directly related to the elbow.

He also pitched for Puerto Rico in the World Baseball Classic last month, going 2-1 with a 4.20 ERA in three starts covering a team-high 15 innings. Lugo posted a 2.67 ERA, 1.09 WHIP and 2.14 K/BB ratio, impressing in his first taste of the majors.

New York's talented rotation is having trouble staying healthy once more. The Mets entered spring training confident they had the depth to withstand injuries since they had seven capable starters, but two are now currently on the disabled list. Wheeler's injury history is well-documented after a 2015 Tommy John surgery, and Gsellman suffered a torn labrum in his non-throwing shoulder last September.
