Lakewood 3, Savannah 2 The Savannah offense was only able to muster five hits and two runs to back up Gabriel Ynoa – who did not pitch all that bad. Ynoa toed the rubber for Savannah on Thursday evening and pitched a solid game, allowing three earned runs over six innings off five hits and two walks. He struck out two and looked a little more comfortable than he did in past starts. A sacrifice […]

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 […]
Savannah, which starts playing on Thursday, has been speculated over and over to continuously have some top talent this season, and the people who speculated these were mostly right. There are a lot of prospects to be watching on this roster, both on the hitters and pitches side. I will list them as a convenience, as well as two potential sleepers for both hitting and pitching. Starting Pitchers Matthew Bowman Gabriel Ynoa Steven Matz Rainy […]
After reading the wonderful prospects list that some of my fellow MMO writers put together, (which is incredibly well-done, well-researched and a must-read for prospect gurus), I decided to share my own prospect list, which I have been working on for a while, with you all.
