Hey everyone, enjoy this interview session with our Savannah Sand Gnats beat writer, Wally Murphy, who attended every single Savannah home game for us this year… Thanks, Wally… Joe D. The Sand Gnats had a tremendous first half, which led them to clinching the playoffs. After Plawecki and Boyd were promoted and left holes in the lineup, did you think they still had a chance to win the championship? When Kevin Plawecki and Jayce Boyd […]
The best news to come out of this past week in the Mets minor league system was the Savannah Sand Gnats capturing their first SAL Championship since 1996. The only bad news about that? Mets Minors has officially closed the book on the 2013 season, looking ahead to 2014. Don’t worry though, we’ll be rolling out some solid and constant content to keep you occupied on MMN while the weather starts to get a little […]
Sandy Alderson told reporters before Saturday’s game that the decision to skip his start yesterday was based largely on reducing his workload. “He would pitch in the All-Star Game whether he pitched today or not,” the Mets’ GM said. “That wasn’t the reason we made the decision. We made the decision on his projected workload over the course of the season. His blister was a factor and the ability for him to pitch a side […]
Jayce Boyd finally got that long waited promotion to Advanced-A, right after the SAL All Star Game as I had speculated. But don’t think for a moment that the better class of pitching has slowed him down any… It hasn’t. The right-handed first-bagger has a four game hitting streak and has nine hits in his first 17 FSL at-bats with a home run on Sunday and five RBIs in his first week. Before his promotion […]
Jayce Boyd was a sixth-round draft pick by the New York Mets in last year’s MLB Draft, and has certainly made people within the organization take notice with his performance with the Savannah Sand Gnats through 62 games this season. After signing with New York, the Florida State University product joined the Cyclones in Brooklyn for 54 games and 201 at-bats. He put together decent numbers in his first professional season (.239/.320/.368), but certainly nothing eye-popping. […]
St. Lucie 6, Bradenton 5 Jacob DeGrom started the game strong for St. Lucie by retiring the first eight batters that he faced, but he ran into trouble in the fourth inning. DeGrom gave up three runs off four hits in the frame. He then gave up a home run to Willy Garcia in the sixth that put St. Lucie behind 4-3. However, the Mets were able to retake the lead due to some sloppy defense by […]
Las Vegas 51s For those of you with weak constitutions, you might want to go away now as I talk about blisters…more specifically, the one that Zack Wheeler apparently had on his throwing hand. It unfortunately burst during the Tuesday night start against the Fresno Grizzlies and the Mets were concerned enough to send him for an MRI. He had been dealing with the blister throughout both of his two starts in 2013, so the question […]
Savannah Sand Gnats 7, Augusta GreenJackets 0 The Savannah Sand Gnats swatted a new season-high 14 hits against the Augusta GreenJackets on their way to a 7-0 win Wednesday night at Historic Grayson Stadium. The Gnats (4-3) have won two straight games for the first time in 2013. Opening Night starter Matthew Bowman delivered a strong start for Savannah, scattering four hits over six shutout innings for his first win of the year. He struck out four […]
Las Vegas 51s Zack Wheeler made his second start of the season last night for Las Vegas and lasted five-and-a-third innings, allowing four runs (one earned) off eight hits and three walks, while striking out six. A few things to note past that line? First off, Wheeler fields his position pretty well, which is always a positive. Another positive is the fact that his breaking ball looked really strong early and flashed real potential. He […]
