Josh Stinson is now an ex-Met. He was claimed off waivers by the Milwaukee Brewers. The 23-year-old righty reliever was the Mets 37th round pick in the 2006 player draft. He reached the majors last September appearing in 14 games for the Mets in relief. He was placed on waivers along with Armando Rodriguez to make room on the 25-man roster for Mike Baxter and Miguel Batista. He is a real great guy and all […]
Mets Vice President of Player Development and Amateur Scouting Paul DePodesta, participated in a chat yesterday over at Baseball Prospectus. DePo fielded a variety of great reader submitted questions ranging from Moneyball to the new CBA with plenty of dope on many of the Mets prospects. Brian (PA): What are Josh Edgins chances of making the club as the lefty specialist? And do you see him contributing to the major league club this year if he doesn’t […]
MLB Draft Countdown released their Mock Draft 4.0 and I really like what they’ve done here. Gone are top prep pitcher Lucas Giolito, who will miss the rest of the season with a strained elbow, and Georgia Southern slugger Victor Roache, who broke his wrist and is also out for the season. Plenty of players are rising and falling as their baseball seasons are well underway, so check it out: 1. Houston Astros – Mark […]
RHP KYLE ZIMMER, USF Position: RHP School: University of San Francisco Hometown: La Jolla, California Height: 6-3 Weight: 210 DOB: September 13, 1991 I had originally planned to do a focus piece on another player this morning, but I caught a glimpse of an interesting conversation on USF right-hander Kyle Zimmer in our chat room and decided to profile him instead. Tomorrow I will post on Oklahoma State’s prized left-hander Andrew Heaney. The most important thing […]
As we enter the final weekend of minor league spring training, let’s see how the four long-season clubs fared on Friday. BUFFALO BISONS (AAA) Matt Harvey took the mound for the Buffalo Bisons Friday in a minor league spring training game against the Memphis Redbirds. The Bisons now have just two spring games remaining before heading north for their first workout at Coca-Cola field on Tuesday. Yesterday’s start was Harvey’s last tune-up before he takes […]
The Binghamton Mets (AA) broke a three game losing streak on Thursday with a 10-6 win over the Jacksonville Suns (Marlins). The B-Mets put together a 12-hit attack, led by outfielder Cesar Puello who had a single, a double, a HR, and two SB’s. The righty-hitting Puello will turn 21 in two days. CF Darrell Ceciliani had two doubles in the game, and 1B Travis Ozga slugged a two-run homer. LHP Darin Gorski went five […]
With just three days remaining in Spring Training for the Mets minor league clubs, contributions by certain players in yesterday’s Buffalo Bisons spring training game caused me to do a double-take. Say what? First up, the winning pitcher in today’s game for the Bisons was left-hander Mark Cohoon. Cohoon had a great year in 2009 followed by a spectacular year in 2010, but in 2011 the wheels fell off. Last year in 18 starts for […]
I know this is a little late coming, but I wanted to pass along this quote from the recently-released Mets prospect Eric Niesen. After the positive feedback that was received in response to my interview with Niesen this past summer, I asked him to give us a few parting words as he leaves the Mets organization: I just wanted to tell everyone thanks for the support over the years that I was with the Mets, […]
Either today or tomorrow the Mets are extremely likely, according to sources, to announce the 2012 minor league rosters for each of the long-season teams. Competition has been ferocious for all four teams, particularly for the most coveted prizes, a spot on one of the pitching staffs for each of the long-season clubs. Over-crowding, combined with ho-hum performances necessitated the recent release of seven pitchers: Tobi Stoner, Eric Niesen, Nick Carr, Roy Merritt, Chris Hilliard, […]
