Mets Minor League Roundup 8/5: Francisco Pena hits 3-run HR in Vegas Victory, Brandon Nimmo goes 3 for 4 with a 2-run HR for Savannah


Nimmo

Mets Minor League Roundup 8/5:


AAA - LAS VEGAS 5, MEMPHIS 2: Francisco Pena belted a three-run homer in a five-run fourth. He had been hitless in 11 at-bats on the road trip before the long ball. Chris Schwinden (5-9) allowed two runs (one earned) on five hits and a walk in six innings. Lucas Duda pinch-hit in the ninth as his rehab assignment shifted to Triple-A. Wilmer Flores began the game at first base with Zach Lutz at third base, but the players flipped positions in the sixth inning. Flores was 1 for 5 in the game. Lutz was 1 for 4 with RBI's. Tim Byrdak retired lefty-hitting Greg Garcia, the lone batter he faced, on a pop-up in the southpaw's 51s debut after 14 appearances with Class A St. Lucie. Greg Burke notched his fourth save despite allowing three baserunners to reach in the bottom of the ninth with one out -- two via hit by pitch. Box

A+ - CLEARWATER at ST. LUCIE (canceled)

A - SAVANNAH 6, CHARLESTON 0: Luis Cessa struck out a season-high 12 batters in eight scoreless innings while allowing four hits and walking none. Paul Sewald completed the shutout with a scoreless ninth that included three strikeouts. Brandon Nimmo went 3-for-4 and had a two-run homer in a five-run eighth. The Gnats grabbed a 1-0 lead in the third inning. Singles from Dimas Ponce, Jorge Rivero and Nimmo loaded the bases with none out. Ponce then scored on a groundball double play from Maikis De La Cruz. In addition to Nimmo's homer, Savannah picked up RBI singles from Eudy Pina, Greg Pron and Albert Cordero in the eighth. Box

RK - GCL METS 7, GCL MARLINS 0: Octavio Acosta tossed six scoreless innings and combined with Ty Williams, Jose Encarnacion and Cameron Griffin on the five-hit shutout. Jhoan Urena and Ivan Wilson had three hits and two runs scored apiece. Box

Mets News: Travis d'Arnaud could get callup when John Buck goes on paternity leave


Mets News:


John Buck's wife is due on Thursday with the couple's child, and Terry Collins indicated there is a possibility the Mets would place Buck on a three-day paternity leave at that point.

Buck noted his wife is in New York, where the Mets return to action Friday. So there is a chance he will not need to be placed on paternity leave, assuming the birth does not conflict with a game.

Collins said top catching prospect Travis d'Arnaud would be a consideration to get called up for the three days if Buck takes paternity leave. Collins did caution that there would be concern about d'Arnaud not being ready for major league pitching, so Francisco Pena or Juan Centeno at Triple-A Las Vegas might be more likely options.

No matter what, Collins suggested, the stay would only last three days.

D'Arnaud has played six Gulf Coast League games since returning from a broken first metatarsal in his left foot, which he suffered April 17. D'Arnaud played with Double-A Binghamton on Wednesday and was 0 for 4.

D'Arnaud is on the 40-man roster, whereas Peña and Centeno are not. But that may not be a major issue, since Peña and Centeno both needed to be added to the 40-man roster this winter anyway if the Mets want to protect them from Rule 5 draft eligibility.

Peña is the son of former All-Star catcher Tony Peña.

Mets News and Notes: Mejia, Bobble Heads, Bobby V, Young, Pena, Francisco, Gee, Edgin, Duda


Mets News and Notes:

Jenrry Mejia is due to land Friday morning and be at camp by midday now that his visa issue is resolved. Dan Warthen and Wally Backman both project Mejia as a future reliever, but the right-hander will be a starting pitcher again this year …

The Mets announced their full 2013 promotional schedule, which includes five bobblehead giveaways: Ron Darling (April 21), John Franco (May 25), Wright (June 30), Dwight Gooden (July 21) and Tom Seaver (Aug. 25).

Bobby Valentine reportedly will be the next athletic director at Sacred Heart University in Connecticut.

Ex-Met Chris Young signed a minor league deal with the Washington Nationals.

Mets farmhand Francisco Pena will play for his father Tony Pena on the Dominican Republic team in the World Baseball Classic.

Frank Francisco will begin tossing a baseball Monday after suffering elbow inflammation early in camp, Collins confirmed.

On Sunday against the University of Michigan, Dillon Gee will pitch in his first game since undergoing emergency surgery at last year’s All-Star break to repair a damaged artery in his pitching shoulder. Gee did get on a bullpen mound in September at Citi Field to allay concerns.
 “I accomplished what I wanted to last year, and that was to be able to come here with some peace of mind,” Gee told Andrew Keh in the Times. “Now I feel like I’m ready to compete again.”

Collins said left-hander Josh Edgin worked on a sinker during the offseason that should make him more effective against righty hitters. Lefties hit .164 and righties hit .263 against Edgin during his rookie season.

Lucas Duda will receive heavy playing time early in Grapefruit League play because he is working on a new stance, Collins said.
