Mets Minors 4/15 Report: Montero Is Just Plain Loco, Nimmo Still Raking, Mazzoni Scratched With Sore Arm
Last Night’s Quick Scores Savannah (5-5) lost a close one to Rome, 2-1 St. Lucie (7-3) toppled Bradenton, 8-2 Binghamton (6-4) dropped New Hampshire, 6-3 Las Vegas (6-5) beat Fresno in eleven innings, 5-4 Prospect Pipeline Zack Wheeler, who had walked six batters in his first 8.1 innings this season, did not walk any Fresno batters in Sunday’s matchup.

I had the chance to talk to New York Mets left-handed pitching prospect Jack Leathersich last month before he headed to Port St. Lucie for the start of Spring Training. Now that the season has begun, and all of our regular readers are returning from their offseason slumber, I’m going to re-post many of our interviews that you may have missed. I can’t think of a better Mets prospect to lead things off with than lefty fireballer Jack [...]
It’s not exactly the variety of a film festival when watching the Mets in spring training. It’s the Nationals, Braves, Marlins and Cardinals on a rotating basis. For the Mets in Port St. Lucie, it’s like watching the same episodes of Seinfeld over and over. After awhile, you know how “The Contest’’ will end. For a young guy like Matt Harvey working on a pitch, those teams don’t have to worry about the film as they can see him first [...]
A pair of Chicago Cubs centerfielders, Jimmy Qualls (1969) and Joe Wallis (1975), stole two of Tom Seaver’s early bids for a no-hitter.

Former Mets pitcher Frank “Sweet Music” Viola is back with the team, but this time he’s not with the big club. Viola signed on as the pitching coach for the Brooklyn Cyclones—the Mets Single-A short season affiliate. The St. John’s University product and East Meadow, Long Island native says he’s happy to be back in New York, though in a different capacity than last time. “Getting my foot back in the door in the coaching [...]
While the big club has played good baseball over the past few weeks, New York Mets Single-A short season affiliate, the Brooklyn Cyclones, open their season this Friday night on the road against the Staten Island Yankees. The borough of Brooklyn is preparing for another exciting summer of baseball, especially after the Cyclones came up one game short last season for the New York-Penn League Championship title. The team held its preliminary workouts this week, [...]
