Seth Lugo will miss at least "a couple weeks"

Mets' Steven Matz to start season on DL

According to multiple reports, Seth Lugo has partially torn the ulnar collateral ligament in his right, throwing elbow.

Carig hears surgery won't be necessary, at least not yet, which is a welcome relief as any UCL issue immediately leads to Tommy John talk. Lugo has received a platelet-rich plasma injection and will attempt to go the rest and rehab route.

Equal Pay Day Report Reveals Earning Challenges For Women In Tech
A coalition of Democratic lawmakers is pushing for legislation they say will help close the wage gap between men and women in CT . The pay gap means women lose around $10,470 in median earnings a year, according to a March report from the NWLC.

Lefty Steven Matz recently suffered a strained flexor tendon that is expected to keep him sidelined for a while, so the Mets now have a pair of their young hurlers on the shelf for an undetermined period. Having secured a rotation spot with a strong spring, he'll not only outpitch Harvey, whose return from thoracic outlet surgery is likely to be uneven, but he'll join the shaggy deGrom and Noah Syndergaard among the team's most marketable players, inspiring other Mets to let down their hair as well. He points out that Lugo did experience some elbow soreness last season.

After undergoing an MRI over the weekend that was said to have shown no structural damage, a team source now suggests that there was in fact a "serious problem" found. Lugo is reportedly seeking a second opinion, and in his post-game press conference manager Terry Collins said, "He's going to miss some time with his elbow" on the order of "a couple weeks". He compiled an impressive 2.67 ERA in 64 innings of work in 17 games in 2016.

Senate GOP needs Pence to break tie on family planning funds
The last time a vice president had to break a tie on final passage of legislation was almost a dozen years ago, when Richard B. Women's marches across the country have protested cuts to reproductive health care services.

Lugo, who made his major-league debut on July 1 previous year, went 5-2 with a 2.67 ERA.

Suter went 1-0 with a 4.00 ERA in eight spring training games before the Brewers optioned the left-handed reliever to minor league camp on March 26. A hard final spring training start prompted the Mets to go with Zack Wheeler instead. The Mets have pushed his next start back one day, to Sunday.
