Lockett set for Mets debut at Wrigley Field

Right-hander Walker Lockett will make his New York Mets debut when he and his new teammates open a four-game series against the host Chicago Cubs on Thursday night.

The Mets acquired Lockett and second baseman Sam Haggerty from the Cleveland Indians in exchange for catcher Kevin Plawecki during the offseason. Lockett, 25, appeared in four games (three starts) with the San Diego Padres in 2018, going 0-3 with a 9.60 ERA in 15 innings.

Now, Lockett will seek his first big-league victory as a fill-in for Mets ace Noah Syndergaard, who is on the injured list due to a strained right hamstring.
