If Vargas wants to keep his rotation spot when Noah Syndergaard returns from the disabled list, he’ll need to improve quickly. Allowing seven runs in 2 1/3 innings last time out against the Rockies, Vargas bloated his ERA to 8.60.

Subbing for Noah Syndergaard in the Mets’ rotation, Lugo has run into a rough patch, allowing eight earned runs in his last eight innings. The Mets hope a return to sea level will help Lugo, who lasted just three innings last time out in Denver.
