Binghamton Mets pitcher Seth Lugo was named Eastern League Pitcher of the Week today for his performance in two starts last week.
The right-hander allowed just a single run in 14 innings last week, winning both of his starts while striking out eight batters in each outing. This marks the continuation of Lugo's recent hot streak for Binghamton; he has won each of his last four starts while allowing just a single run in 25 innings. This season, Lugo is 6-4 with a 3.20 ERA in 17 starts in Double-A. He has emerged as one of Binghamton's top pitchers on a team that currently leads their division by 1.5 games.
Lugo, 25, was drafted by the Mets in the 34th round of the 2011 draft out of Division III Centenary College. He pitched for Single-A St. Lucie last year and the Brooklyn Cyclones in 2013 after missing all of 2012 with a back injury.
