Mets Minor League Roundup 8/29:


AAA - LAS VEGAS 10, COLORADO SPRINGS 7: Dustin Lawley, the Florida State League Player of the Year and home run leader, launched his first Triple-A long ball. Ruben Tejada and Mike Baxter also went deep as the 51s pummeled Sky Sox starter Sean Gallagher for 10 runs on 14 hits in four innings. 51s starter Matt Fox allowed three runs in 6 2/3 innings. Chris Schwinden entered to record the final out after D.J. Mitchell surrendered four ninth-inning runs. Box

AA - BOWIE 13, BINGHAMTON 1: The Baysox blasted five homers, four against starter Erik Goeddel, to hand the B-Mets their most lopsided loss of the season.

Brandon Waring, who entered the game with a .159 batting average in August, launched three homers -- the final against Armando Rodriguez in the sixth.

Goeddel is the first B-Mets pitcher to allow four homers in a game since Brandon Moore surrendered four to Harrisburg on Sep. 3, 2010. it was Binghamton’s worst margin of defeat since they fell, 16-3, to New Hampshire on April 26, 2012. Earlier in the day, the Eastern League named Allan Dykstra and closer Jeff Walters to the end-of-season All-Star team. Box

A+ - JUPITER 12, ST. LUCIE 3: Alex Panteliodis allowed eight runs (five earned) in 4 2/3 innings and St. Lucie was eliminated from postseason contention. T.J. Rivera drove in two of the Mets' three runs. Box

The Scouting Book on 2B Dilson Herrera


Dilson Herrera / 2B, PIT
Born 3/3/1994 (19 yrs old)
Cartagena, Colombia

Height 5-11
Weight 160
Bats/Throws R/R

The Book on Herrera:

A powerful Colombian infielder who'll probably settle at second base, Pirate prospect Dilson Herrera rose to attention-worthy status by hitting his way out of Rookie ball (.281/341/.482) and into low-A at the age of 18. Herrera has a nice speed/power combination (twelve steals, eight dingers in sixty games) and decent enough foot and glovework to cover shortstop if necessary. He's raw, like any teenage player, but he shows a strong work ethic and natural aptitude for the trials of the middle infield. If his power is legitimate, he'll be a fast-riser in the system.

Mets News: John Buck and Marlon Byrd Traded to Pirates for Infield Prospect Dilson Herrera and a player to be named later


Mets News:


The Pittsburgh Pirates acquired outfielder Marlon Byrd and catcher John Buck in a trade Tuesday with the New York Mets.

The Mets, who announced the deal in a press release, received infield prospect Dilson Herrera and a player to be named later.

Pittsburgh, which is attempting to reach the postseason for the first time since 1992, certainly bolstered its offense with the addition of Byrd, who is batting .285 with a career-high 21 home runs and 71 RBIs this season.
