Less than a week since calling up Brandon Nimmo, another former Brooklyn Cyclone is set to make his Major League Debut. Seth Lugo will be joining the New York Mets, having been called up from the Las Vegas 51s.
Lugo was drafted by the New York Mets in the 34th round of the 2011 MLB Draft from the Centenary College of Louisiana in Shreveport.
That June, Lugo joined the Kingsport Mets for the 2011 season and went 5-2 in 10 starts with an ERA of 5.21
After missing the 2012 season due to back surgery, Lugo joined the Brooklyn Cyclones as a starter. He started 7 games going 2-4 with an ERA of 4.19 before being promoted to Savannah in August, where he went 2-2 in 5 starts.
Lugo spent the 2014 season with the St. Lucie Mets going 9-3 in 27 games. He split the 2015 between the Binghamton Mets and the Las Vegas 51s. He began the 2016 season with the Las Vegas 51s, where he went 3-4 in 19 games, 13 starts with an ERA of 6.55.
Lugo will be the 58th member of the Brooklyn Cyclones to play in the Major Leagues. He will be the 38th to make his debut with the Mets and 39th to play for the Mets.
