Talk about a good week for your Mets pitching prospects… Seth Lugo has been recognized as the SAL Pitcher of the Week after an awesome start a couple days ago. On August 10th, Lugo tossed one of the better starts all year in the Mets organization, where he dominated through seven shutout innings while striking out 11. He allowed just four hits all evening and walked none, leaving his SAL ERA at 0.69. He has 21 punch-outs over his first 13.0 innings in Savannah to date.
Lugo was promoted to Savannah to replace the injured Matthew Koch and has quickly become acclimated to the South Atlantic League. He was our 34th round draft pick in the ’11 draft and has put together back-to-back exceptional pitching performances. The key for Lugo is his ability to locate his pitches, which has given him a 21:0 K/BB ratio so far… yeah, 21:0. There’s actually not even a ratio because he hasn’t walked a batter. Isn’t that cool?
Keep it up, Seth… keep it up!
