The Mets landed a pitcher.

Joey Lucchesi will be coming to Queens in a multi team trade. The other big name in this deal would be Joe Musgrove who will be headed west to San Diego.

Lucchesi missed almost all of 2020. Early reports are that he will be stretched out and is a candidate for the rotation.

The Mets and Padres will be sending prospects to Pittsburgh, and my goodness. It’s gotta be a rough time to be a Pirates fan.

The prospect the Mets will be parting ways with is Endy Rodriguez. The 20 year old Catcher/Outfielder was the Mets’ 14th ranked prospect.

Let’s say we digest all this and come back in a little bit with our full reaction, shall we?
