Mets reliever Seth Lugo has a small fracture in his left pinky toe that he suffered in his hotel room on Monday night, manager Luis Rojas said on Tuesday.
Rojas said there is "no concern at all" and that Lugo will refrain from throwing for roughly three days before ramping back up again.
"It's probably gonna take a little later until he starts participating in games, but we're not concerned about it. ... they're doing a padding on his spikes," Rojas added. "He was testing it walking around today and everything. It's his left foot, so landing on it the next three days we'll see how it progresses and then he'll start throwing."
Lugo informed the Mets after arriving at the ballpark on Tuesday that he had hurt the toe while banging it on something in his hotel room, and an X-ray revealed the small fracture.
"There's no concern at all," Rojas reiterated.
Lugo is expected to be a big part of a Mets bullpen that should also include Edwin Diaz, Dellin Betances, Jeurys Familia, Robert Gsellman, Brad Brach, Justin Wilson, and perhaps Michael Wacha.
