Thursday Night Pitching Matchup: Mets vs Cubs

The Mets will call up right handed pitcher Walker Lockett to spot start for Noah Syndergaard while he’s on the Injured List.

The Mets acquired Lockett from the Cleveland Indians for Kevin Plawecki during the off-season.

The right hander only has four starts with Syracuse due to starting the season with an arm injury that kept him on the shelf for six weeks but was sporting a 3.28 ERA before getting the call-up.

Tyler Chatwood has been working out of the bullpen and with Kyle Hendricks down and out with a right shoulder injury, Chatwood will be making the spot start. Chatwood owns a 3-1 record, 3.60 ERA, 1.46 WHIP, and 29 strikeouts in 35 innings pitched and 17 games. He righty has a 2.87 ERA in his last 15 appearances.
