With Ruben Tejada lost for the season due to a broken leg, the Mets have promoted shortstop Wilfredo Tovar. According to today’s media notes, he is not in tonight’s starting lineup, but will be available off the bench to Terry Collins. I had the privilege of enjoying a summer of baseball watching Wilfredo Tovar play shortstop in Binghamton. The knock on Tovar is he’s a prototypical “good field – no stick” infielder. Good field simply doesn’t […]
While the St. Lucie Mets were one of the few minor league affiliates in New York’s system to not qualify for the playoffs in 2013, they came pretty damn close. It took until the last week of the season for them to get eliminated from playoff contention. There were quite a few players to have big seasons at Tradition Field this summer, the most notable one being Dustin Lawley, the 2013 Florida State League Player of […]
With a 2.09 ERA and 60 strikeouts in 56.0 innings of work, it was hard to ignore the excellent season that Jeff Walters delivered for Double-A Binghamton in 2013. His 38 saves in the regular season shattered the all-time career and single-season records for Binghamton and in doing so Walters tossed his name in the mix as a future bullpen arm with the Mets. All things considered, I’ve mentioned on numerous occasions that the names Jack Leathersich, Jeurys Familia, Vic Black, […]
The best news to come out of this past week in the Mets minor league system was the Savannah Sand Gnats capturing their first SAL Championship since 1996. The only bad news about that? Mets Minors has officially closed the book on the 2013 season, looking ahead to 2014. Don’t worry though, we’ll be rolling out some solid and constant content to keep you occupied on MMN while the weather starts to get a little […]
Minor League writer David Conde was fortunate enough to get a chance to interview Chasen Bradford of the Binghamton Mets this past weekend. Bradford, 24, had a solid season and between Advanced-A and Double-A combined, he appeared in 50 games – all in relief – and posted a 2.61 ERA, 1.17 WHIP and 2.99 FIP. In 69.0 innings, Bradford struck out 61 batters and walked 17. Here is a portion of David’s interview with Chasen: David […]
The Mets announced that RHP Jeurys Familia will rejoin the team in time for their doubleheader today against the Marlins. After undergoing surgery to remove bone spurs in his elbow last June, Familia has worked hard to get himself back to the big-league team. Going forward, Familia has put himself in line for a significant role in our 2014 bullpen. During his string of rehab games in the minors, the young righty has pitched well, allowing […]
The strength of the Savannah Sand Gnats this year, much like the Mets, was in their pitching staff. The Sand Gnats might have done a lot of other things right in order to get to their position, but when it came down to a best-of-three series at home for Savannah with Gabriel Ynoa and Steven Matz still to pitch, I felt pretty damn confident about our chances. Ynoa, as you’ve heard, turned in an amazing […]
Yesterday, I posted one Mets related question from Keith Law’s chat on ESPN on Wednesday – the one about Mets fans possibly suffering from Stockholm Syndrome. I’ll include that one again along with some other questions he fielded regarding the Mets. Chris: Josh Satin, Lucas Duda, Allan Dykstra….how nauseous does it make you when people recommend them as starters at 1B for Mets? Klaw: It’s baseball’s Stockholm Syndrome – fans of bad teams latch on to mediocre […]
St. Lucie Mets reliever, Cody Satterwhite, will be extending his season according to the Arizona Fall League Twitter account: The #Mets have assigned RHP Cody Satterwhite to the 2013 Arizona Fall League. He’ll pitch for the Scottsdale Scorpions. — Arizona Fall League (@MLBazFallLeague) September 12, 2013 The right-hander joins Chasen Bradford, Hansel Robles, Cam Maron, Aderlin Rodriguez, and Cory Vaughn on the Scorpions. At the time of the initial announcement, the Mets said two additional pitchers would be added at a later […]
