Lucchesi, who had been lights out in his last 5 starts, was injured last weekend and Tommy John surgery is a real possibility.
Sources: MRI for Joey Lucchesi revealed a significant tear in the UCL. He will get a second opinion, but Tommy John is obviously a real possibility.
Such a tough blow for the Mets and Lucchesi, who had been pitching so well. He had a 1.19 ERA in his last five starts.
