St. Lucie 7, Tampa 1 Rylan Sandoval blasted a one-out grand slam in the top of the sixth inning Monday night, and the St. Lucie Mets cruised to a 7-1 win over the Tampa Yankees. Robert Gsellman started the game for St. Lucie but lasted just four innings, giving up two hits, no runs to go with two walks and two strikeouts. Jim Fuller came on in relief of Gsellman, tossing two innings and allowing one [...]
Zack Wheeler is a name we have all heard a lot lately. Probably too much, actually. But it’s a name I expect Mets fans will hear plenty more of over the coming years. Wheeler, the Mets’ top pitching prospect, is currently at Triple-A Las Vegas as he continues to work on control issues before he gets that anticipated call to join the Mets. Although most knew he was headed for the minors to start the [...]
Charlotte 3, St. Lucie 2 Noah Syndergaard hurled six effective innings on Tuesday night, but the St. Lucie bullpen gave up two runs over the final three innings as the Charlotte Stone Crabs topped St. Lucie, 3-2. In the first, second, fourth, and sixth innings – Syndergaard set the side down in order. He allowed only three hits and the only run that crossed under his watch was due to a passed ball. This was probably [...]
St. Lucie 6, Charlotte 3 A six-run sixth inning powered the St. Lucie Mets (8-3) to a 6-3 win over the Charlotte Stone Crabs on Monday night. Charlotte (4-7) took an early lead after scoring a run in the first, second and third innings, but the St. Lucie bats came alive in the sixth. Travis Taijeron and Gilbert Gomez led the inning off with back-to-back singles. After T.J. Rivera struck out swinging, Cam Maron knocked [...]
St. Lucie Mets 4, Palm Beach Cardinals 0 St. Lucie (5-0) continues to dominate early this season, picking up its fifth win in as many games. Luis Mateo was stellar on the mound, tossing 6.2 scoreless innings to pick up his first win of the season. Mateo allowed four hits and surrendered two walks to go with his nine strikeouts. St. Lucie scored its first run in the fourth inning after designated hitter Dustin Lawley [...]
Noah Syndergaard, the Mets No. 3 prospect, made his season debut Sunday, tossing four scoreless innings against the Jupiter Hammerheads. St. Lucie won the game 1-0 and are now 4-0 on the season. Syndergaard surrendered just three hits while walking one and striking out five. He departed after four innings as he continues to get stretched out from a lat injury during the spring. Syndergaard was part of the Travis d’Arnaud package in the trade with [...]
MMO’s John Delcos is reporting that Shaun Marcum is flying from Port St. Lucie to New York to be examined by team doctors. “He has some real discomfort running from his shoulder up through his neck,” said manager Terry Collins during his pregame press conference with reporters at Citi Field. “What that is, where it starts, what’s causing it, I think we won’t know until he sees the doctor tomorrow.” Collins also said that Marcum is [...]
With the first pitch of 2013 set to be thrown in less than nine hours, it’s about time we reflect on the spring. This past weekend, I visited Viera and Port St. Lucie to catch two Mets spring training games: Thursday vs. the Nationals, Friday vs. the Cardinals. There wasn’t much to be excited about in Thursday’s game. Shaun Marcum was supposed to start, and, as we all know, he was scratched. His status is [...]
About a week ago, I posted an opinion piece about having hope in the spring. Why? Because there is no reason to be negative and already count your team out just days before or after pitchers and catchers report. I got a lot of feedback on the post — both good and bad. As I sit here on Feb. 16 to write a follow-up post, I watch college basketball with my New York Mets hat [...]
Everybody has a chance in March It’s a cliché, but it is always worth mentioning: Hope springs eternal. And it’s never truer than with baseball. As we sip our coffee — and some of you shovel snow in the northeast — on this final Sunday before pitchers and catcher report, cool breezes and temperatures in the mid-70s welcome the start of Spring Training. Really, this is the best time of the year, in my opinion. [...]
