New York Teams

Right-hander Seth Lugo, who can serve in a starting or relief capacity, is being promoted to the Mets, according to the Record. Lugo is 3-4 with a 6.55 ERA in 19 appearances (13 starts) this season with Triple-A Las Vegas. The Mets obviously need coverage in case Steven Matz has an elbow issue and needs to depart. Logan Verrett threw 92 pitches Wednesday in Washington and would be unavailable for that role. Lugo, 26, already is on the 40-man roster.
