Allan Dykstra Is Crowned The 2014 PCL HR Derby Champ

On Monday night at the Durham Bulls Athletic Park, Allan Dykstra won the 2014 Pacific Coast League Home Run Derby.

This marks the longest such streak since the club moved over from Shea in 2009. Despite an overhaul of the sprawling dimensions at Citi Field prior to the 2012 season, the spacious […]

Mets Minors: Three Performances Worth Noting

What a performance by lefthander Steven Matz last night as he blanked the Altoona Curve for six innings and struck out nine batters to pick up his first victory for Double-A Binghamton.

Mid-Season Review: Savannah Sand Gnats

Record: 44-22 Top Performers / Top Prospects: Dominic Smith, 1B: After a very good season with the Gulf Coast League Mets last year, Smith has not been the same hitter. The 2013 first-round pick is hitting .271/.337/.314 on the season with ten doubles, but no home runs. Smith should be given the benefit of the doubt […]
