As of April 2, the only Mets’ minor league affiliate to announce an official roster has been the Triple-A Las Vegas 51s. There weren’t many surprises on the roster, and will be headlined by the organization’s top two prospects RHP Zack Wheeler and C Travis d’Arnaud. Here is their official roster: Here is the official roster of the 2013 Binghamton Mets: Pitchers Mark Cohoon John Church Mark Cohoon Adrian Rosario Erik Goeddel Darin Gorski Adam [...]
Noah Syndergaard knows he has all eyes on him. By June 16, Syndergaard could find himself as the crown jewel and No. 1 prospect for the Mets if Travis d’Arnaud and Zack Wheeler are called up to the show. The Mets boast a young crop of power pitching right-handers that include the likes of Rafael Montero, Luis Mateo and Domingo Tapia. Once Wheeler is promoted, at the top of that list of names will read Noah Syndergaard. Syndergaard is a tall [...]
3:30 PM Update: Adam Rubin has now reported that Darin Gorski has cleared waivers and will remain under team control. It also has been announced that Scott Rice, and not Robert Carson, will be the second lefty in the bullpen for 2013. The bullpen now projects as follows: Bobby Parnell Brandon Lyon LaTroy Hawkins Scott Atchison Josh Edgin Greg Burke Jeurys Familia Scott Rice So here’s today’s moves as announced by the Mets: They have [...]
TYLER PILL, RHP Bats: R Throws: R Height: 6’1″ Weight: 185 lb. Position: RHP Age: 22 ETA: 2014 MMO Top Prospect Rank: #28 Background: Here is a brief profile on Tyler Pill from the recent 2013 MMO Top 25 Prospect series: Pill’s fastball basically sits in the high-80s. Pill also tosses a curveball out there, which I feel is pretty underrated, and a slider and change-up. The slider is extremely inconsistent and hittable, but could potentially be [...]
At this point, I think everyone knows that I am a Matt den Dekker fan. I’ve argued in his favor since early spring training, when he leaped through the St. Lucie night and pulled a would-be home run from beyond the left-centerfield wall. Many Mets fans never knew who den Dekker was until that moment. That catch brought him into the limelight. But maybe it was just one catch, people thought. If you’ve read the scouting [...]
Teddy Klein, fellow Minor League Analyst here at MMO, did an excellent piece on German Ahmed Rosario earlier today. I did a review of some footage on Rosario, and wanted to share some thoughts I had on the exciting prospect. The first thing I noticed was that Rosario is very raw at the plate. He seems very aggressive, and his stride in the batter’s box is a tell-tale sign of it. His stride is quite [...]
This spring has been rocked by injuries for the Mets thus far. Maybe it’s because we live in New York, and hear about the injuries more, but it doesn’t seem like as many teams have suffered the amount of injuries that the two New York teams have this spring. While injuries are sometimes unpreventable and part of the game, the injuries this spring that really made me scratch my head were the intercostal injuries suffered by [...]
Latest Update by Joe D: Great news on starting pitcher Jeremy Hefner, who left today’s game after getting hit on the elbow by a come-backer. The team announced that he only sustained a contusion and that X-Rays showed no broken bones. Hefner has won a job in the rotation and according to Terry Collins he will probably start the fourth game of the season. The right-hander finished off a solid spring with a 3.47 ERA over [...]
Vicente Lupo, OF Bats: R Throws: R Height: 6’ Weight: 180 lb. Position: Outfield Age: 19 ETA: 2016 MMO Top Prospect Rank: #15 Background: Here is a brief profile on Vicente Lupo from the recent 2013 MMO Top 25 Prospect series: Signed as an international free agent in July of 2010, Lupo quickly showed a penchant for extra-base power at a young age. While his 2011 season was marred after a dangerous bout with malignant hypothermia that ruined [...]
Updated by Joe D. 3/26 A team source told Adam Rubin that veteran righthander LaTroy Hawkins has made the Opening Day roster. This comes as no surprise given manager Terry Collins‘ propensity to lean towards players with more experience as long as they are healthy. Hawkins, 40, has not allowed a run over five innings during Grapefruit League action. He is coming off a season where he posted a 3.64 ERA in 48 relief appearances. [...]
The pitching was strong again today for the Binghamton Mets (Group 2 Players), as Tyler Pill went 5 1/3 scoreless innings to secure the victory. Pill, a former fourth round pick in 2011, went 9-5 with a 2.31 ERA splitting time between Savannah and St. Lucie. He was also ranked No. 28 in the most recent MMO top prospect list. The pitching has looked very strong so far this spring with Jacob deGrom and Domingo Tapia also combining [...]
