SAT, SEPTEMBER 30, 2017 - Lugo allowed two runs on six hits while striking out four over four innings in a no-decision against the Phillies on Saturday. He did not issue a walk. This was a bit of a letdown after Lugo blanked the Braves over six his last time out. Lugo totaled 101.1 innings this season while pitching with a partial UCL tear, and while the surface numbers weren't great, the peripherals suggest he was better than those numbers would indicate. Lugo should compete for a starting role in spring training.
