The Scottsdale Scorpions lost 3-1 on Friday and fell to 11-13 overall on the season.

After looking unhittable early on in AFL action, Mickey Jannis showed his first sign of struggles Friday. Jannis went five innings, giving up nine hits and three runs while striking out five. The right-hander now has a 1.64 ERA in 22 innings this fall.

Other Mets prospects did not pitch Friday, but are doing very well themselves. Tim Peterson has a 0.96 ERA in 9.1 innings, Kyle Regnault has a 0.77 ERA in 11.2 innings and Matt Pobereyko hasn’t given up a run in 10.2 innings.

On the offensive side, only David Thompson and Tomas Nido played. Nido went 1-for-4 and is now hitting .184/.250/.327 in 13 games.

Thompson went 1-for-2 with two walks and is now hitting .314/.364/.549 on the season. Kevin Kaczmarski did not play but is hitting .349/.406/.444. His batting average is good for seventh in the league. Luis Guillorme is hitting .308/.341/.385 and is working on increasing his power numbers.

Elsewhere, Juan Uriate made his winter debut in the Mexican Winter League. Uriate is one of the most promising catching prospects in the Mets system behind Nido. He went 1-for-4 in his debut with the Caneros de los Mochis.

The 20-year-old hit .305/.372/.455 for Kingsport this past season.
