A version of this story originally appeared in The Tablet Newspaper. Brooklyn Cyclones’ manager Rich Donnelly is known for being a passionate man. He’s coached professional baseball at various levels for nearly 40 years, including winning the 1997 World Series as a coach with the Florida Marlins. But Donnelly has another passion – that actually rivals his love of baseball. The 67-year-old coach is a world-class racquetball player for his age category. Now in his […]
Updated Post 7/31 According to Adam Rubin, Travis d’Arnaud could join the Mets when John Buck leaves the team to be with his wife for the birth of his child which is expected to happen tomorrow. I’m not buying this… Joe D. Prediction: Catcher Juan Centeno, who must be added to the 40 Man Roster will get the call, while D’Arnaud continues to rehab. Centeno must be protected from the Rule 5 Draft this fall. Original Post […]
It’s been an up-and-down season for 2011 MLB draft first round pick, Brandon Nimmo. His first full season of professional ball came in 2012 with the Brooklyn Cyclones, where he amassed a .248/.372/.406 line with six homers, 20 doubles, and 40 RBIs in 266 at-bats at Coney Island. With another year of experience under his belt, he was primed to take Savannah by storm in Low-A with the Sand Gnats. He did just that in […]
It’s very rare that any baseball team excels in all three major aspects of the sport – timely hitting, clutch pitching and strong defense – in any one particular game. If a team does do that, it usually isn’t a short season Single-A team. But the Brooklyn Cyclones enjoyed a complete effort in a 4-0 victory Monday evening over the Hudson Valley Renegades, the short season affiliate of the Tampa Bay Rays, to cap off […]
During the first four months of the 2013 season, Cesar Puello has finally displayed why he has been so highly touted as an exciting five-tool prospect. So far, Puello has performed at an MVP level for the Binghamton Mets, consistently displaying each of his five tools, while absolutely scorching the ball. His batting average now stands at league leading .334 with a .411 on-base, a .563 slugging, and a .973 OPS that all rank in the top […]
Updated by Matt Musico Noah Syndergaard continues to show he can handle the competition up in Double-A. While at the MLB Futures Game earlier this month, the tall right-hander said he had two personal goals this season: to make it to the Futures Game and get promoted to Double-A by the end of the season. He’s already done both, and his stock is rising with each start for the B-Mets. In two starts this week, Thor […]
The Gnats’ bats delivering a thrilling comeback in game one of a doubleheader and Matt Koch was one pitch away from perfection in game two, as the Savannah Sand Gnats swept a doubleheader from the Augusta GreenJackets by scores of 3-2 and 3-1. In the first game, with two outs in the bottom of the seventh inning and down 2-1, Brandon Nimmo and Stefan Sabol each drew walks to put the tying and go-ahead runs […]
Despite reports that right-hander Jeurys Familia could return this season after undergoing surgery to clean loose bodies out his right elbow on June 5, manager Terry Collins sounded less than optimistic. “I heard — now this is only hearsay — that there’s a possibility he may pitch again this year, that he’s really made fast strides after surgery,” Collins told reporters. ”I wouldn’t count on it, but they did say there was a possibility.” Adam Rubin also added […]
