Mets acquire Joey Lucchesi in three-team trade

In the same trade that’s sending Joe Musgrove to the Padres, the Padres will be sending left hander Joey Lucchesi to the Mets.

The Mets will send prospect Endy Rodriguez to the Pirates. Rodriguez was ranked the Mets 14th top prospect and spent time between catcher and the outfield.

Lucchesi is 18-20 and owns a 4.21 ERA in 299.1 career innings pitched. He’s struck out 308 batters giving him a 9.3 K/9 rate with a 1.28 WHIP.

The left hander will give the Mets some competition in the back-end of the rotation with Peterson and Matz.

  1. So he would seem like a bullpen candidate based on his 3rd time thru the lineup issues. But hes lost velo since getting to the bigs. He is a k per inning guy, so theres that.
