2023 Player Outlook
2023 Recap: Seth Lugo has been a solid pitcher and perhaps most importantly for a Royals rotation that has struggled with ups and downs, he has been a consistently productive arm as both a starter and reliever. He spent most of his career in the bullpen with the Mets but reached free agency in the winter of 2022 and headed to San Diego.
2024 Outlook: On the west coast last season Lugo was able to throw 146 1/3 innings over 26 starts and he posted an earned run average of 3.57, striking out 23.2% of batters, limiting walks to a 6% rate. He now slots in near the top of the Royals’ rotation, with Cole Ragans, Michael Wacha and Brady Singer and could be a solid late round addition to any fantasy staff.
