Peter Alonso Slugs Two Homers in Binghamton Win

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

Right-handed pitching prospect Jordan Humphreys had Tommy John surgery earlier this week. He was having a breakout season in 2017 with 1.79 ERA and 0.87 WHIP in 80.2 innings.

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.
