    I thought doing a monthly thread would better suffice now instead of making a thread for each series as was the case in the past...as many of these team boards don't really get all that much traffic per se.

    We can also post injury & trade updates here as well, along with general Mets/MLB chat, and news from down on the farm system.

    Let me know what you guys think.

    I only wanted to do an opening day thread, well because it was friggin opening day..:D..and it was @ Citifield.


    So lets kick this month off beginning with game 2 of the Braves series...and see how it goes.

    LGM!

    :suds:

    and speaking of injuries....:L......here we go.

    Mets' Lugo sidelined with partial UCL tear

    NEW YORK -- Mets right-hander Seth Lugo has a partially torn ulnar collateral ligament in his pitching elbow but has not decided whether he will have Tommy John surgery.

    Lugo had a platelet-rich plasma injection Tuesday at the Hospital for Special Surgery and will not throw for about two weeks. The teams said he then will start a throwing program and that the need for surgery will be determined based on how he feels after trying rehabilitation.

    An MRI taken Saturday revealed the partial tear of the UCL.

    A partial tear of his right UCL will keep Seth Lugo from throwing for about two weeks, the Mets announced Tuesday.

    Lugo, 27, last pitched March 27, allowing four runs and eight hits in 4 1/3 innings during an exhibition game against the Washington Nationals. He was 2-1 with a 5.56 ERA in three spring training starts and one relief appearance.

    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. After solid outings against Venezuela and the United States, he took the loss in the championship game won 8-0 by Team USA.

    Lugo made his big league debut last July 1 and went 5-2 with a 2.67 ERA in eight starts and nine relief appearances. He was a big help down the stretch to an injury-depleted pitching staff, helping the Mets reach the National League wild-card game. The team was expecting him to provide depth again this season as a potential bullpen arm and spot starter.

    New York's talented rotation is having trouble staying healthy once more. Left-hander Steven Matz has a flexor tendon strain and will be sidelined until at least May. Right-hander Noah Syndergaard left Monday's opener with a blister on the middle finger of his pitching hand, and his next start will be pushed back a day.

    The Lugo news is really disheartening. Hopefully he can recover with no surgery but I won't hold my breath on that.

    Wednesday at Citi Field, Bartolo Colon takes the mound against the team he played for from 2014-16. Terry Collins, his former manager with the Mets, was on the opposite side of several of the 43-year-old's early career achievements.
    *The 3 here are when he was with the Cleveland Indians...

    Doctors have told Mets GM Sandy Alderson on Wednesday that the presence of fluid around Seth Lugo's elbow is an indication of a "recent injury." Alderson wouldn't speculate whether that meant the team thinks the partial UCL tear occurred during the World Baseball Classic or at spring training. Alderson did add: "We (Mets) have been committed to the WBC and continue to be."
