Baseball America has included Mets pitching prospect Matt Harvey in their Midseason Top 50 Prospects after being snubbed in their Pre-Season Top 100. The Mets’ 2010 first round draft pick, checked in at No. 30 and is gaining momentum after a dominating performance at Single-A Port St. Lucie. Harvey was promoted to Double-A Binghamton a week ago and overall his record now stands at 8-4 with a 3.35 ERA in 88 innings, during which he racked up 106 strike outs against just 28 […]
Buffalo Bisons – Scranton/WB Yankees (PPD) Postponed Binghamton Mets – New Britain Rock Cats (PPD) Postponed St. Lucie Mets – Tampa Yankees (PPD) Postponed Savannah Sand Gnats 11 – Greensboro Grasshoppers 4 Angel Cuan had one bad inning in an otherwise very good start. The 3rd inning started off with a homerun that just got over the wall and then the next three men reached to load the bases. A run came in on a […]
Buffalo Bisons 2 – Scranton/WB Yankees 6 Mark Cohoon went from baby steps to huge strides with this game. Head and shoulders his best start at Triple-A. This was just the second time in eight starts he has walked none, the first time he has struckout at least one batter per inning, and just his second quality start. Cohoon was touched for two runs in the 2nd inning on two doubles, a single, and a […]
Buffalo Bisons 7 – Scranton/WB Yankees 5 Chris Schwinden was his own worst enemy in this affair. Schwinden gave up a leadoff single to Chris Dickerson and wound up paying more attention to him than the batter and walked the batter on four straight pitches after laying one right down the middle to get the at-bat started. The walk proved to be very costly. After getting two outs in the inning, he allowed a double […]
Buffalo Bisons 11 – Syracuse Chiefs 6 Dylan Owen allowed just one hit in this game. That one hit just happened to be a homerun in the 4th that followed a walk and was responsible for the only two runs against him. Recently signed Miguel Batista got into his first action and got shellacked. He only recorded one out and let four runs come in on five hits. His ERA with the Mets is a […]
Chris Schwinden was drafted first by the Detroit Tigers in 2004 out of high school in the 43th round. He was a draft and follow for the Tigers as he went on to the College of the Sequoias. Schwinden went 5-4 with 1.78 ERA (32 runs/19 earned runs) in 14 appearances (13 starts) with the Sequoias during his freshman season and posted a 15:75 BB:K ratio in 96 innings with 79 hits allowed, but wound […]
Buffalo Bisons 2 – Syracuse Chiefs 4 Pat Misch was absolutely dealing when he was removed for a pinch hitter. Through six innings he had given up two runs (one earned) one seven hits, while throwing just 71 pitches! The move to pull him had a positive immediate impact for Tim Teufel, but the move would came back to bite him in the butt. Dale Thayer was brought in to replace Misch and gave up […]
Buffalo Bisons 4 – Syracuse Chiefs 10 The blistering bats were out against Jack Egbert and the Bisons. This is just another showing that Egbert’s stuff is too diminished to get out advanced hitters. When a team gets seven hits and nine total base runners against you in less than three innings it is clear no one is being fooled by what you’re throwing. The score could have been much worse had Raul Chavez and […]
This is from Pete, one of our regulars here at MMO. Mets 2011 Mid-Season Minor Leagues Biggest/Pleasant Surprises. (In reverse order of how dramatic) Juan Lagares – St Lucie, the speedy left fielder is enjoying a very good year with the bat. Hitting .338 in his first 234 AB. He also boasts an OPS of .845 Taylor Whitenton – Savannah, through 12 starts (16 G), the 6’3″ righty is 4-1, with a 2.79 ERA, and […]
