Teddy Cahill of MiLB.com had an article this afternoon on catching prospect and 2012 first rounder Kevin Plawecki. As those of you who read here know, Plawecki has been raking in Single-A Savannah and may be close to a promotion to FSL and quite possible even to Double-A Binghamton given how advanced and polished he is. The former Purdue Boilermaker is hitting .356 with five home runs and a .597 slugging percentage in 41 games. He leads the South Atlantic League [...]

Noah Syndergaard took the hill for the St. Lucie Mets tonight, and continued to dominate hitters at the Single-A level. He was bringing 96 mph heat, and mixing in his change-up and curve ball all night. The curve ball was the sharpest it’s looked all year, as he snapped off hook after hook that either left hitters frozen in their stance, or left them swinging wildly like they were trying to hit mosquitoes out of the sky. [...]

The St. Lucie game was suspended in the bottom of the first inning – they were trailing the Tampa Yankees 1-0 at the time. Savannah had the night off.
