The Mets’ rotational depth was bolstered even more with the acquisition of Joey Lucchesi on Monday. A young lefty with room to grow, the former San Diego Padres will head down to Port St. Lucie to battle for a spot in the back end of the rotation.

It turns out that Joe Musgrove was prescient when, at 18, he got a tattoo of a baseball with the San Diego Padres' logo in it, along with his last name and the year he was born.

Musgrove had some fun with his grandmother Tuesday via FaceTime.
