On Thursday, Mets manager Luis Rojas spoke to media at Spring Training in Port St. Lucie, Florida about relief pitcher Seth Lugo, getting to know Marcus Stroman, and the recent MLB rule changes.
On Seth Lugo wanting to be in the starting rotation...
"Well I had Lugo as a starter in the minor leagues," Rojas said. "I remember in the championship year in Savannah, he was one of our starters, and he actually made a key start for us to win the championship. Seth, we've had conversations, and they have been about being in our bullpen. But, he's always had the mentality of being a starter, just because that's how he developed in the organization. It wouldn't surprise me, having conversations with Seth before with somebody about being a starter or wanting to be a starter. That's the mentality that he developed with."
