Check out this amazing catch by Alonzo Harris last night as he channeled his inner Willie Mays to make and over the shoulder catch with his back to the ball. After a breakthrough season for Advanced-A St. Lucie in 2012, Harris has struggled this season at the plate for the Binghamton Mets, and has been plagued with a couple of minor, but nagging injuries. Selected by the New York Mets in the 39th round of the 2007 First-Year Player […]
The AL affiliates of the New York-Penn League defeated the NL affiliates (including the Brooklyn Cyclones) 4-3 in the 2013 All-Star Game played in Norwich, Conn. The NL took a 3-2 lead into the bottom of the ninth, but it was Cyclones’ closer John Mincone that wound up with the blown save and the loss. He gave up a leadoff homer in the inning that tied the game and then allowed an unearned run to […]
Brooklyn 9, State College 2 Brooklyn tied its season high mark in runs scored, beating the State College Spikes 9-2. L.J. Mazzilli led the charge tonight going 4-for-5, with two runs scored and two RBI. State College took the lead in the top of the third inning in one of the more bizarre plays you will eve see. Steven Ramos laid a bunt down the first base line and Carlos Valdez went to throw to first but Ramos was called safe. Alex […]
Talk about a good week for your Mets pitching prospects… Seth Lugo has been recognized as the SAL Pitcher of the Week after an awesome start a couple days ago. On August 10th, Lugo tossed one of the better starts all year in the Mets organization, where he dominated through seven shutout innings while striking out 11. He allowed just four hits all evening and walked none, leaving his SAL ERA at 0.69. He has 21 punch-outs […]
Oh, Rafael Montero…way to put the exclamation point on a wonderful night of Mets pitching! I was originally so disappointed in the organization’s decision to put Montero in Triple-A where he could have been victimized by the factors that make the PCL so bad for pitchers… and originally, it seemed like he would be. But he battened down the mental hatches, turned it up a notch, and has since been nothing but dominant over his […]
A team insider has confirmed to ESPN New York that catching prospect Travis d’Arnaud is indeed slated to replace John Buck when he heads to New York for the birth of his baby. The Mets promoted d’Arnaud to Triple-A Las Vegas so he’d be close by when Buck is placed on paternity leave. It will be great to finally get a look at D’Arnaud who’s spent about three months recovering from a broken foot. “I feel like […]
1. Noah Syndergaard, RHP Status: Hot Thor continues to stay hot as he makes Eastern League hitters extremely frustrated every time he takes the mound. He was dominant on August 4th against Harrisburg, allowing two hits, one walk, and three strikeouts in five shutout innings. He’s now 5-0 with a 1.98 ERA, 1.00 WHIP, and 49 strikeouts in 41 innings pitched. Between Binghamton and St. Lucie, he now has a single-season career-high in innings pitched (104.2). […]
Altoona 5, Binghamton 4 Despite two home runs from Wilfredo Tovar, the Binghamton Mets had three costly throwing errors as they fell to the Altoona Curve, 5-4 on Wednesday night at NYSEG Stadium. The loss snapped their five-game winning streak. After a scoreless first inning, Binghamton struck the scoreboard in the bottom of the second inning. With one out, Tovar blasted a solo shot over the left field wall against Casey Sadler. It was Wilfredo’s […]
I recently had the opportunity to speak to Al Skorupa and Chris Blessing from Bullpen Banter. They’re both really good guys and they do a great job covering the minors. I highly suggest you check out their site. I originally contacted them to get a feel for their thoughts on Mets prospects in general. They provided me with some great insight, and I started to notice an interesting pattern– they both seem to agree that […]
