Reese Havens headed to the Arizona Fall League Double-A Binghamton right-handers Collin McHugh and Brandon Moore, outfielder Juan Lagares and second baseman Reese Havens have been informed they will be part of the Mets’ contingent in the Arizona Fall League, according to Lynn Worthy of the Binghamton Press & Sun-Bulletin. On Saturday, Havens hit a walk-off homerun in the bottom of the 12th inning as a pinch-hitter in a 7-6 win for Binghamton over Altoona. There was some talk [...]
Last week, less than 24 hours before the signing deadline, the Mets and SS/OF Bradley Marquez officially came to an agreement on a contract with the New York Mets. In June, the standout dual-sport athlete was selected in the 16th round of the MLBaseball First-Year Player Draft. On Sunday, I had a chance to speak to Bradley who was gracious enough to give me 20 minutes of his time in which we discussed a variety of topics. [...]
While the Mets continued their descent to the bottom of the NL East Standings last night in Philadelphia, there’s two big reasons that better days may be coming as Mets pitching prospects Matt Harvey and Zack Wheeler continue to shine down in the minors. The Mets’ new dynamic duo, and arguably the two top prospects in the organization, are settling in very nicely for their respective teams in Binghamton (Harvey) and St. Lucie (Wheeler). Last night, Matt Harvey [...]
Reese Havens In case you missed it, second base prospect Reese Havens made the Baseball America Hot Sheet last week which highlights prospects that are excelling. After a week in which Havens batted .435/.536/.739 (10-for-23) with seven runs scored, BA writes: In an alternate universe, a healthy Reese Havens might already have claimed the Mets’ second base job. The position was wide open this spring when Justin Turner won the job as much by default [...]
With September 1st only two weeks away, Adam Rubin speculated on which Mets minor leaguers could get called up when rosters expand to 40 players. Here’s what he had to say about a few of them: CHRIS SCHWINDEN, rhp (7-6, 3.53 ERA in 23 appearances, 21 starts, with Buffalo and Binghamton): The Dillon Gee-type feel-good story of the current crop of prospects, Schwinden came out of nowhere. A 22nd-round pick in 2008 from Fresno Pacific, [...]
Jordany Valdespin Mets infield prospect Jordany Valdespin is having himself a breakthrough season with his bat and was recently promoted from Double-A Binghamton to Triple-A Buffalo last week. So far, he’s been on a tear since joining the Bisons and has collected hits in each of his first three games batting an impressive .364 (4-11). Prior to his promotion, the 23-year old racked up some impressive numbers posting a slash line of .297/.341/.483 for Bingo with [...]
Updated by Joe D Mike Puma spoke with Brandon Nimmo’s father Ron who say’s Mets and his son are no closer than they were in June. [blackbirdpie url=https://twitter.com/#!/NYPost_Mets/status/102845104976445440] [blackbirdpie url="https://twitter.com/#!/NYPost_Mets/status/102844838378094592"] Not sure if these quotes are legit or if Puma misquoted him. (sarcasm) Original Post 3::00 PM According to Adam Rubin of ESPN NY, a Mets official expressed confidence a deal with first-round pick Brandon Nimmo, a high school outfielder from Wyoming, will be completed and announced [...]
Brian Costa of the Wall Street Journal had a great post this morning for those of you who can’t get enough on Mets pitching prospect Matt Harvey. The Mets top selection in 2010 started out the season with a dominating performance in Single-A Port St. Lucie, where he was recently named the Top Pitching Prospect in the Florida State League. Harvey was promoted to Double-A Binghamton in June, finishing his St. Lucie stint with an 8-2 record, a [...]
Buffalo Bisons 3 – Syracuse Chiefs 2 Despite issuing five walks, none of them came back to hurt Miguel Batista and he pitched very effectively. He allowed just to runs to score on a pair of sac flies. John Lujan and Dale Thayer held down the fort in relief with Thayer picking up the win after throwing a perfect inning. In the 1st inning Jesus Feliciano was able to advance to third base because of [...]
