Slugging first base prospect Peter Alonso is quickly opening eyes and two home runs last night for the Binghamton Rumble Ponies is only going to increase that.
Alonso went 2 for 4 with two solo homers in the Rumble Ponies 5-1 win over the Erie SeaWolves.
During his first eight games in Double-A, Alonso is slashing .333/.353/.667 with three doubles, triple and two home runs.
He now has 26 doubles and 18 home runs on the season in only 341 at-bats between Binghamton and the St. Lucie Mets. Alonso is slashing .290/.361/.531 for the year.
The Mets second round pick from 2016 is pushing his way to the major leagues in a hurry.
Other Mets Minors Notes
Rumble Ponies knuckleballer Mickey Jannis has been very good over his last five games; 29 IP, 24 H, 4 ER, 4 BB, 24 K.
Luis Guillorme currently has the second most walks in the Eastern League with 70 and has a career-high 20 doubles on the season.
2017 second round pick Mark Vientos had gone 4 for 13 with a walk and two doubles since his promotion to the Kingsport Mets. Did I mention he’s already 17-years-old.
P.J. Conlon is being used out of the Binghamton bullpen right now and hasn’t allowed an earned run in five relief appearances this year.
The Rumble Ponies have already clinched a playoff spot and will face the Trenton Thunder in the first round.
