The minor league season kicks off this evening for all of the Mets minor league affiliates, aside from the short season teams (Kingsport and Brooklyn), which kick their seasons off in June. Here are some brief previews for tonight’s Opening Day games: Las Vegas 51s vs. Sacramento River Cats Location: Raley Field, Sacramento Time: 10:05 PM Zack Wheeler takes the hill for the 51s in tonight’s matchup, and Travis d’Arnaud will be behind the plate. The projected [...]
With Pacific Coast League action kicking off tomorrow, April 4, MiLB.com has released their top ten prospects to watch from the PCL in 2013. The Mets will have two of the top five players on that list when play opens up tomorrow in Travis d’Arnaud (4) and Zack Wheeler (5). It’s unclear how long many of these players will remain in the PCL, as they are some of the more exciting prospects in all of baseball, [...]
The Port St. Lucie residents will be in for a treat this season, as the St. Lucie Mets arguably have the best rotation in the minor leagues. If they aren’t the best right now, they certainly are in the discussion. The way the roster has shaken out, it looks as if the rotation will consist of Noah Syndergaard, Domingo Tapia, Luis Mateo, Hansel Robles, Alex Panteliodis and Jacob deGrom to start the season. The roster also consists of [...]
Here is the first look at the St. Lucie Mets roster. The starting pitching staff on this team may arguably be the best pitching staff in the minors, and if not the best, definitely in the discussion. Pitchers Hamilton Bennett Chasen Bradford Marcos Camarena T.J. Chism Angel Cuan Jacob deGrom - Finger Injury Randy Fontanez Jim Fuller Michael Fulmer - Knee Injury Luis Mateo Estarlin Morel Alex Panteliodis Hansel Robles Noah Syndergaard Domingo Tapia Taylor Whitenton Catchers [...]
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 [...]
