The Mets have announced that they’ve released P Brad Holt, P Danny Herrera, P Craig Hansen,OF Mike Wilson, OF Corey Patterson, OF Pedro Zapata & INF Brandon Brown. Of course the name that jumps out at you here is 2008 first rounder Brad Holt who was once held in the same regard as Michael Fulmer and Noah Syndergaard are today. I remember how he blew away everyone in his first spring camp and how coaches and [...]
Mets Minors 5.19.2011 BUFFALO 5, INDIANAPOLIS 1: Brian Sweeney shut out the Indians for six innings, helping the Bisons to a 5-1 win in Indianapolis Thursday.

Daniel Murphy, remember him? After starting off his stint in the Dominican Republic Winter League with an underwhelming 0-8 at the plate, Murphy exploded with a big performance in his third game for the Aguilas. Last night he helped spark a three run comeback victory by going 3-4 and two RBIs. All three hits were doubles and he drew a walk as well. Murphy missed the entire 2010 season because of a pair of MCL [...]
These are desperate times for the New York Mets my friends. It’s times like this that will test the true mettle of a team. Yesterday, I discussed the lack of toughness among the Mets players, and today I have to question the patience and the scruples of upper management, namely Omar Minaya. There are whispers in the organization that the time has come to bring up prospects like pitchers Brad Holt and Jenrry Mejia, as well [...]
Starting pitcher, Brad Holt continues to shoot up the top prospects lists. The 2008 supplemental first round draft pick, has impressed scouts with his plus fastball and his other pitches continue to improve. I asked Adam Rubin of the Daily News about him on Tuesday, and he now has him ranked among the top three prospects in the Mets organization. Last week, Baseball America released their mid season prospect rankings and Brad Holt was the [...]
In the just released list of Baseball America’s Top 25 Prospects, no Mets appeared among baseball’s premier prospects.

Here is the complete list… Mid-Season Top 25 Prospects 1. Jason Heyward, of, Braves 2. Mike Stanton, of, Marlins 3. Jesus Montero, c, Yankees 4. Justin Smoak, 1b, Rangers 5. Madison [...]
Last years top draft pick for the New York Mets, first baseman Ike Davis, got a special mention in this weeks Baseball America’s Prospect Hot Sheet. The Mets used the 18th overall pick in last year’s draft to select Arizona State 1B Ike Davis mostly on the strength of his power projection. The key word is “projection,” because the 6-foot-5 lefthanded batter provided precious little power in the short-season New York-Penn League in his debut, batting [...]
Some great news on the Mets prospects front, courtesy of Adam Rubin, Mets officials say Brad Holt is on a similar trajectory to Mike Pelfrey. So Holt, the 33rd overall pick in the draft one year ago and the fastest-rising pitching prospect in the organization, was promoted to Double-A Binghamton on Wednesday. He could even make an impact in the major-league rotation if the need still exists late in the season. His B-Mets debut is [...]
