T.J. Rivera just finished his third season in professional baseball for the New York Mets. Over those three years, Rivera has compiled a .304/.359/.396 offensive stat line. He has also hit 12 homeruns and has 136 RBI—not too shabby for a top-of-the-order guy who plays the middle infield. Most people will look at this year’s numbers at St. Lucie as a regression, but it’s not the case. Rivera was called upon to hit leadoff in […]
When looking back on the 2013 season in which the St. Lucie Mets were able to enjoy, its no wonder why they remained in contention most of the second half. The team was made up of real good ball players, and if not for some injuries to key pitchers down the stretch, they may have stormed into the playoffs and taken it all. I had the privilege of interviewing a few of their players like […]
While the St. Lucie Mets were one of the few minor league affiliates in New York’s system to not qualify for the playoffs in 2013, they came pretty damn close. It took until the last week of the season for them to get eliminated from playoff contention. There were quite a few players to have big seasons at Tradition Field this summer, the most notable one being Dustin Lawley, the 2013 Florida State League Player of […]
Having the opportunity to follow the Mets Minor league teams has been such a rewarding experience. Being a Mets fan for so many years, I have limited myself to only worrying about the big club, which has truly limited me to really knowing what the Mets have in their farm system. When I took on the task to pick the Mets Minors Player of the Week, I had to truly engulf myself into each team […]
With the St. Lucie Mets coming back in town this past weekend, to face the Fort Myers Miracle, I set out a few weeks ago to try and land an interview with one of their players. My first thought was since I picked second baseman T.J. Rivera as my first MMN Player of the Week honoree, it would be really cool to chat with him about the great season he has been having in High-A. I reached out to […]
I had the chance to talk to New York Mets left-handed pitching prospect Jack Leathersich last February before he headed to Port St. Lucie for the start of Spring Training. With the news that Jack has been promoted to Triple-A Las Vegas, I thought today would be the perfect time to look back at what me and him talked about during our phone conversation where we both covered a lot of ground. Jack is 2-0 with three saves […]
Last Night’s Quick Scores Las Vegas edged out Fresno, 6-5. Binghamton shut out Trenton, 8-0. St. Lucie was shutout by Lakeland, 5-0. Savannah dropped Lexington, 9-2. Prospect Pipeline ESPN has included the names of the other 20 players believed to potentially be facing MLB discipline, and Mets top-hitting prospect Cesar Puello as well as Ex-Met Fernando Martinez are among those included. Cesar Puello also continues to tear the covers off of baseballs. In last night’s victory, Puello was 3-for-4 […]
Righthander Noah Syndergaard, second baseman T.J. Rivera and outfielder Dustin Lawley have been selected to represent the St. Lucie Mets for the Florida State League All-Star Game to be played on June 15 game at Dunedin. TC Palm writes: Syndergaard, 20, is 2-3 in 11 starts with a 2.81 ERA and 59 strikeouts in 57 2/3 innings. He was acquired by the Mets in the offseason in a trade involving Cy Young Award winner R.A. […]
Brevard County 4, St. Lucie 3 Brevard County held off a Mets rally in the ninth for a 4-3 victory on Wednesday at Space Coast Stadium. The Mets trailed 4-2 entering the ninth. Aderlin Rodriguez and Travis Taijeron had back-to-back singles to open up the inning. After Charley Thurber‘s sacrifice bunt, Cam Maron had an RBI groundout to cut the deficit to 4-3. With Taijeron at third and two outs, Seth Harvey struck out Gilbert […]
