Noah Syndergaard took the mound today for his Binghamton debut — and this was a huge step forward for the 20-year old. He was taken out of the game with 88 pitches under his belt — and he still had a lot left in the tank. He was impressive over a solid six innings of work, allowing two earned runs off five hits and a walk, while striking out seven. Syndergaard was incredibly efficient with […]
Believe it or not, I ended up missing most of the game last night tending to some medical issues. But you have to love the the technology era we live in. Thanks to my phone, those mid-inning video updates from the MLB app, my Twitter app, and of course DVR. It felt like I was there. This morning at 7:05 AM I watched the game in it’s entirety and wow was I impressed. I can’t […]
Las Vegas 11, Colorado Springs 5 How does one judge Rafael Montero‘s second start in AAA this season? Well, it was his first since his recent non-temporary call-up, and he was betrayed by his defense out there on Saturday night. He pitched into the sixth inning, allowing seven hits and no walks, while striking out seven. All five runs were charged to him — but only one of them was earned. He pitched more than good […]
Echoing what Terry Collins told reporters on Friday, Sandy Alderson told season ticket holders at Citi Field this morning, that Rafael Montero is a longshot to be promoted to the Mets this season. He cited an innings limit as the reason and said he’s currently about 70-80 innings away from being shutdown for the season. Last season, Montero tossed just 122 innings and he is already at 73.1 innings this year. Yesterday, Collins said that […]
He very well could be in the air flying to Las Vegas right now, but in addition to getting promoted to Triple-A today, Baseball America tabbed Rafael Montero on their weekly Prospect Hot Sheet. The right-hander made the list because of his seven shutout innings in a win against Altoona on June 8th. The performance included only two hits and one walk allowed, while striking out six. Montero has been getting a lot of attention, and rightfully so. […]
In response to which young arm or arms the Mets should trade for a bat this trade deadline or offseason… I actually believe that Rafael Montero is the least likely to be traded among all pitching prospects in the organization right now, at least as long as this front office is in place. There´s a pretty obvious pattern. The front office wants pitchers who throw a lot of strikes and control the strike-zone. They want […]
Looks like Harvey-Wheeler Day is still on… Thanks Mother Nature… Matt Musico from MetsMinors.net just posted the following: Zack Wheeler will be making his final minor league start tonight before getting promoted to the major leagues. He’s set to debut on Tuesday at Turner Field against the Atlanta Braves, about 45 minutes away from his childhood home. He takes the mound tonight against the Tacoma Rainiers at Cashman Field in Las Vegas, and Adam Rubin reported that he’ll […]
Who’s Hot Cesar Puello, OF (BIN): If you haven’t heard by now, Puello enjoyed perhaps the best week of his MiLB career last week when he crushed six home runs in just 25 at-bats. He posted a .600 average, going 15-for-25, with three doubles, six home runs, and 15 RBIs. He also stole three bases. Puello’s recent hot hitting has catapulted him to the front of our outfield prospect corps — with some fans even […]
Rafael Montero was absolutely amazing today as he continued his stretch of dominance over the entire Eastern League. Montero breezed through his start against the Altoona Curve with seven more shutout innings, allowing just two hits and a walk over that span. He struck out six and dazzled anyone watching as he spun a gem. Over his last three starts in AA, Montero has pitched a combined 20.o innings, allowed just eleven hits and four […]
