Allan Dykstra was drafted in the first round of the 2008 MLB Draft by the San Diego Padres. He played his college ball at Wake Forest University, and the Demon Deacon was considered one of the top power threats in college baseball at the time. Some considered Dykstra to be a better prospect than Ike Davis coming out of college, mainly because of his power and his ability to get on base. He was a […]
This week’s Boom or Bust centers around B-Mets right-hander Erik Goeddel, who was our 24th round pick in the 2010 MLB Draft. Goeddel, who is slated to start the B-Mets game later today, is 8-3 this season with a 3.94 ERA in 89.0 innings. He has struck out 86 while walking 39. Goeddel has a history of strong numbers in the minor leagues, coming off a 3.41 ERA in Advanced-A St. Lucie in ’12 and a […]
I’m sitting two rows behind the home dugout on the first base side on Autograph Session and Home Run Derby day, the day before the Eastern League All-Star game in New Britain, Connecticut. A near 90-degree sun is beating down on a glorious summer day. A huge throng of fans snake from the hallway below the stands, up a stairwell in left field and then back down in front of the third base dugouts waiting […]
Logan Verrett was knocked out of last night’s ballgame against the New Hampshire Fisher Cats in the third inning, but the B-Mets scored seven runs between the fifth and sixth innings to secure their 52nd win of the season. If you missed the recap here on MMN, you can see it here. How did the B-Mets get all those runs in such a short period of time? The answer to that question is off the bat of Danny […]
According to Lynn Worthy via twitter, Cesar Puello, Allan Dykstra, Josh Rodriguez, Jeff Walters, and Logan Verrett will be headed to the Eastern League All-Star team. This comes as no surprise, as the B-Mets, at 47-28, have an 8.5 game lead over the Trenton Thunder in the EAS Eastern Division, and have the best record overall in the league. With a high-performing team comes a lot of All-Star nods. I just talked about how well Puello […]
Last Night’s Quick Scores Las Vegas topped Salt Lake, 13-9. Binghamton shut out Portland, 5-0. Savannah dropped to Augusta, 3-1. St. Lucie shut out Bradenton, 8-2. Prospect Pipeline Rafael Montero killed it last night…again. The righty was absolutely dominant through six innings today – allowing just four hits and two walks while striking out eight batters. He allowed no earned runs and dropped his ERA in AA down to 3.08. He was touching 95 mph on […]
Last Night’s Quick Scores Las Vegas lost to Salt Lake, 7-5. Binghamton slipped by Portland, 3-2. Savannah defeated Augusta, 2-1. St. Lucie shut out Bradenton, 1-0. Prospect Pipeline Logan Verrett was pretty damn good in yesterday’s game, scattering three hits over seven innings while striking out nine. He allowed just one earned run and walked none. In fact, as Mitch pointed out, “over Verrett’s past two starts, he has pitched 13 innings, striking out nineteen […]
Last Night’s Quick Scores Las Vegas beat Salt Lake, 6-5. Binghamton lost to Portland, 10-9. Savannah slammed Augusta, 6-5. St. Lucie defeated Dunedin, 8-5. Prospect Pipeline Domingo Tapia could not even make it out of the first inning yesterday and struggled mightily in his return from the DL. His velocity was still there in bounds, touching 96 MPH with ease frequently in the first, but he was unable to find his command. Perhaps he left […]
You hear it all the time: it isn’t about velocity, it’s about location. And no one exemplifies that old adage more than Logan Verrett. The 22-year-old Texas native was taken in the third round of the 2011 draft and has been impressive at all three minor league stops. Verrett dominated A ball in 2012 in both Savannah and St. Lucie, combining to make 17 starts and finishing with an ERA of 2.70, a WHIP of 0.968, and […]
