Mets Minors Report 5/3: Plawecki And Montero Honored, McHugh Struggling, Panteliodis Makes Debut

Kevin PlaweckiLast Night’s Quick Scores

Prospect Pipeline

  • We are starting off another Minor League Report with Kevin Plawecki. He had two more hits again last night, one of which was…you guessed it…a double. What more does he have to prove in the SAL at this point?
  • More accolades for Plawecki, as he finally received some recognition by Baseball America after being snubbed on their prospect hot sheet for the past four weeks. Plawecki and Rafael Montero were both named to the Baseball America All-Prospect Team for April. For the month of April, Montero compiled an 11-to-1 strikeout to walk ratio. Both of these guys were ridiculous in April and are well deserving of the recognition.
  • I’m a little confused. The PCL is a hitters league and the Mets continue to promote hitters from Las Vegas based on their numbers. I wonder if this means that no pitchers are ever going to be promoted based on their numbers because they are awful. Collin McHugh started the season off strong, prompting many to lobby for a call up, but his last three starts have been pretty bad. His ERA over those three starts is over 6.00.
  • Look for Andrew Brown to get some time at first base against left-handed pitchers while Ike Davis continues to figure things out.
  • Beck Wheeler is making one hell of a splash in Savannah this year. He has allowed only two base runners, a hit and a walk each, over 11.2 innings pitched with no earned runs. He has recorded 16 strikeouts and opposing hitters are batting .028 against him so far. He picked up his second save of the season last night. Wicked. (Satish)
  • Sound the alarms, Aderlin Rodriguez walked twice last night. (Satish)
  • Wilmer Flores‘ strikeout rate, at 8.0%, is ranked as second in the PCL for qualifying players. The maturity may not always show in the stats, but Flores continues to make strides to becoming an MLB player as he continues to take more reps at second base. (Satish)
  • Brandon Nimmo missed his second game last night due to a hand contusion. (Satish)
  • Alex Panteliodis made his FSL debut. Pants was able to provide five effective innings in his season debut and first start off the DL, where he allowed an earned run off just four hits and a walk. His only blemish was allowing a solo home run in the fourth inning, and otherwise, Panteliodis looked pretty much in control during his time on the mound. He rocked an even 5:5 GB/FB ratio. (Satish)
