Kevin Kernan of the New York Post, has a must-read post on what the Mets blueprint or “plan” is going forward and unsurprisingly it’s all about the starting pitching. A National League executive told Kernan that “the Mets have the best pitching in the minor leagues bar none. They are really, really deep in starting pitching.” You know all the names: Zack Wheeler, Noah Syndergaard, Michael Fulmer, Logan Verrett, Rafael Montero and a at least [...]
Mets Minors Report 5/2: Lara Named Pitcher of the Week, Plawecki Ready For FSL, Bowman Still Dealing
Last Night’s Quick Scores Las Vegas demolished Reno, 14-8. Binghamton got thrashed by Erie, 11-4. St. Lucie was beaten by Tampa, 7-3. Savannah defeated Kannapolis, 6-3. Minors News RHP Rainy Lara of the Savannah Sand Gnats was named the South Atlantic League Pitcher of the Week for the week ending April 28. Lara pitched a brilliant game tossing 7.1 shutout innings and allowing just five hits and walking none while striking out nine against the West Virginia Power. [...]
Noah Syndergaard accomplished two important things on Sunday. He picked up his first win of the season and he pitched seven innings for the first time in his professional career. That according to Jonathan Raymond who got a chance to get up close to the Mets pitching prospect in his last start. Syndergaard is trying to put that one bad start when he allowed seven runs over three innings completely behind him and he seems [...]

Last Night’s Quick Scores The Las Vegas/Colorado Springs game was postponed due to cold. Binghamton dropped to Portland in extras, 9-8. St. Lucie dropped to Charlotte, 3-2. Savannah dismantled Dlemarva, 9-1. Prospect Pipeline All eyes were on Noah Syndergaard last night, as everyone wanted to see how he would respond after his worst professional outing as a Met on April 18. In that game, Syndergaard pitched three innings and gave up seven earned runs — it was [...]
For the first two weeks of the minor league season, the Mets were represented with a prospect cracking the Baseball America Hot Sheet. Last week it was Rafael Montero. This week, it’s Wilmer Flores. Both players were listed “In The Team Photo,” which is basically considered an honorable mention. As I stated in the Mets Minors Report earlier today, Flores is quietly having a nice season offensively. This fine hitting prospect seems like he has [...]
The roster of this year’s St. Lucie Mets team is packed with some fantastic talent. This year, St. Lucie will showcase some of the finest pitching pitching prospects in the Met system, and even some of the finest in the minor leagues. This year’s team will likely be the most potential-packed of any in the system. Let’s see who will make this season one to watch. The Big Names Noah Syndergaard (RHP) – The hard-throwing [...]
Baseball America released a brief minor league roster analysis for each team’s Top 10 Prospects. Here is Matt Eddy’s lowdown on the Mets. Things they said: The top two starters from the 2012 short-season Brooklyn club will skip a level and proceed directly to high Class A St. Lucie. RHP Luis Mateo’s wicked fastball-slider combo enabled him to lead the New York-Penn League with 85 strikeouts a year ago, but he’s already 23, having missed three years [...]
It hasn’t been officially announced yet, but Michael Fulmer will probably be spending some time on the disabled list to start this season after successfully undergoing knee surgery to repair a torn meniscus in his right knee in early March. I checked in with Joe D. and he has received reports that Fulmer is rehabbing his knee with no problems, everything is going smoothly, and he should be back on a mound some time in early May. [...]
