With pitchers Matt Harvey, Zack Wheeler, and Noah Syndergaard rising through the minor leagues and dominating along the way, the hype surrounding those at the top has blocked out some of the performances of lesser-known prospects, even with a fanbase as critical and attentive as the Mets’. Last week, Vinny took a look at some of the most underrated hitters in the Met system. Let’s take a look at some of the most underrated pitchers […]
Thoughts from Joe D. After Satish posted an update on Rafael’s Montero’s brilliant performance last night, I received a few questions about him via email and Twitter. In Montero’s last six starts for Las Vegas, consider these numbers… In 39.0 innings pitched, he has allowed just 28 hits and 11 walks for a 0.99 WHIP and he has held batters to a .199 batting average. Numbers like this are unheard of in the PCL and […]
Two interesting tidbits of information about some prospects that I haven’t heard too much about myself recently came out in Adam Rubin’s Farm Report this morning. Check it out: Jayce Boyd, who is hitting a combined .334 between Savannah and St. Lucie this season, exclusively has served as DH since June 29 with the Florida State League club. Boyd, a first baseman drafted in the sixth round last year out of Florida State, has been […]
The Mets have just announced that righthander Jenrry Mejia will start Saturday Friday against the Washington Nationals. Here’s some excellent insight from longtime reader Sach who writes: Jenrry Mejia was on a major league not minor league rehab assignment which was due to end on July 29th. And after that date, the Mets either had to call Mejia up or spend and burn their last remaining option on him optioning him to AA or AAA. Why […]
Contributed by Mike Stainkamp who you can follow on Twitter at @mikestainkamp34. Matz continues to improve while staying healthy A few weeks ago, Mets fans saw something that they’ve been waiting years to see: two top-prospect arms mowing down Braves hitters. Matt Harvey and Zack Wheeler pitched both ends of a doubleheader, Wheeler, of course, making his big league debut. To say the future is bright for the Mets is an understatement, at least in terms […]
Congratulations to the Savannah Sand Gnats, who won the First Half Southern Division Championship for the third time in four years, with a game-clinching RBI from Brandon Nimmo last night. Nothing better than winning the first half of the season and poppin bottles! #gnats #playoffsbaby @You_Found_Nimmo pic.twitter.com/608R0WLKPg — Kevin Plawecki (@kplawecki26) June 15, 2013 The Gnats currently hold a record of 41-26 on the heels of last night’s 2 – 1 victory.

Charleston 6, Savannah 3 It was a battle for Steven Matz in this game, who never really found his groove. He was saddled with the loss after he allowed five runs, four of them earned, and was lifted before he could finish the fifth inning. Julian Hilario allowed an inherited runner to score, which closed the book on Matz, and left Savannah in a 5-1 hole. Gregory Pron had doubled home Cole Frenzel in the […]
