Mets Minor League Roundup 6/29:


Mets AAA - SACRAMENTO 2, LAS VEGAS 1: Nick Buss broke a 1-all tie with a solo homer in the fifth against 51s starter Darin Gorski. Las Vegas' lone run came when Matt Reynolds singled and ultimately scored on a wild pitch in the first inning. Matt den Dekker had a leadoff double in the ninth, but was stranded at second base. Box

Mets AA - BINGHAMTON 7, ALTOONA 4: Darrell Ceciliani scored three runs and Jayce Boyd went 3-for-4 as the B-Mets won for the 16th time in 19 games. After Ceciliani and Boyd began a second-inning rally with one-out singles, Travis Taijeron ripped an RBI double. Kai Gronauer followed with a run-producing groundout and Matthew Bowman helped his own cause by blooping an RBI single. Dilson Herrera capped the four-run frame with an RBI single. An inning later, Ceciliani walked and swiped second and Boyd plated with a single. Taijeron followed with an RBI double, kicking Binghamton’s lead to six runs. Altoona cashed in on a B-Mets fielding mistake to get on the board in the bottom half. Alen Hanson’s one-out chopper to first base eluded Boyd for an error. Two batters later, Matt Curry had an RBI double. Against reliever Yao-Hsun Yang in the fifth, Ceciliani and Boyd started another rally with singles. Gronauer made it 7-1 with an RBI single. The Curve scratched out one last run against Bowman in the sixth. Following a leadoff single by Willy Garcia, Stetson Allie produced an RBI double. Bowman bounced back by retiring six of the next seven batters, capping his night with a scoreless seventh. Jack Leathersich struck out the side in the eighth. In the ninth, Ryan Fraser allowed two runs before fanning Curry to secure the victory. Bowman (6-5) struck out nine while holding the Curve hitless in nine at-bats with runners in scoring position.

Mets Minor League Roundup 5/20: Matt den Dekker's two-run double lifts 51's over Fresno, Fulmer strikes out ten for St.Lucie


Mets Minor League Roundup 5/20:


Mets AAA - LAS VEGAS 3, FRESNO 2: Matt den Dekker's two-run double in the seventh lifted the 51s from a late one-run deficit. Andrew Brown earlier contributed a solo homer -- his ninth long ball of the season. It was Brown's 60th career homer in the Pacific Coast League, making him the sixth active PCL player to reach that threshold. Buddy Carlyle (1-0), Zack Thornton and Vic Black (seventh save) combined for four scoreless relief innings. Starter Giancarlo Alvarado allowed two runs on seven hits and three walks in five innings. Las Vegas improved to 32-13. Box

Mets AA - PORTLAND 2, BINGHAMTON 1: The B-Mets went 0-for-10 with runners in scoring position and stranded the tying run at third base as the game ended. Binghamton jumped on the board in the second against Portland starter Brian Johnson. Jayce Boyd singled and Cory Vaughn doubled off the top of the “Maine Monster.” With two in scoring position, Dustin Lawley lifted a sac fly. B-Mets starter Darin Gorski opened his eighth start with three scoreless innings, then ran into trouble in the fourth. Blake Swihart erased Binghamton’s lead by blasting a solo homer. Gorski was burned by a shaky defensive stretch later in the frame. With a runner on first, shortstop Matt Reynolds had a bouncing ball squeak under his glove for an error. With runners at the corners, Gorski tossed a pickoff attempt to first. The runner on third, Henry Ramos, broke for home. Matt Clark read the play, but his throw to the plate skipped past Kevin Plawecki, giving the Sea Dogs a 2-1 lead. Portland reliever Matty Ott ran into a jam in the eighth. He walked Travis Taijeron to start the inning. After a single and a flyout put runners at the corners, Reynolds ripped a grounder to third. Taijeron broke for the plate on contact and was gunned down by former Mets farmhand Stefan Welch. Plawecki then flied out to end the threat. Binghamton received one last chance in the ninth when Derrik Gibson dropped Clark’s fly ball to left-center for a two-base error to start the inning. Clark moved to third on a groundout, but was left 90 feet from the plate as Noe Ramirez retired Vaughn and Lawley. Gorski (3-2) allowed two runs (one earned) and fanned six in five innings. Box

Mets Minor League Roundup 7/7:


AAA - TUCSON 4, LAS VEGAS 3: A half-inning after Wilmer Flores tied the score at 3 with a two-run double, Justin Hampson surrendered the decisive run in the bottom of the seventh. Wally Backman and Zach Lutz were ejected that inning after Lutz was called out on strikes. Backman mimicked ejecting the umpire, according to the Arizona Daily Star.

AA - NEW HAMPSHIRE 16, BINGHAMTON 5: B-Mets starter Erik Goeddel (7-3) walked a career-high seven and was tagged for seven runs over 4 2/3 innings in his first loss since April 19. The Fisher Cats hammered five homers, including four in an eight-run seventh. New Hampshire took advantage of nine walks to hand the B-Mets their most lopsided loss since April 26, 2012 -- a 16-3 defeat, also to New Hampshire. Goeddel loaded the bases on three straight walks in the third. Clint Robinson then hammered a grand slam. Following two more walks in the fifth, Ryan Schimpf laced an RBI single to end Goeddel’s night. Ryan Fraser entered and surrendered a two-run double to Brian Van Kirk and an RBI single to Jon Talley. Fisher Cats starter Marcus Stroman, a product of Patchogue-Medford High on Long Island, allowed four hits and struck out eight over seven innings. The B-Mets only highlights against Stroman came on a pair of homers -- by Allan Dykstra in the fourth and Travis Taijeron in the seventh. It was Dykstra’s 14th homer this season. In the seventh, Andy Burns led off with a solo homer against Fraser. Following a hit batter and a walk, Talley crushed a three-run homer. Adam Kolarek relieved Fraser after another walk, but could not stop the bleeding. Robinson singled and Brad Glenn launched a three-run homer. Burns capped the frame with a solo homer, his second long ball of the inning, for a 16-2 lead. Box

A+ - FORT MYERS 3, ST. LUCIE 0: After recovering from spring-training surgery to repair a torn meniscus and making two Gulf Coast League starts, Michael Fulmer made his Florida State League debut. Fulmer, the 44th overall pick in the 2011 draft, surrendered three first-inning runs. He ultimately completed five innings, surrendering no additional damage. St. Lucie (44-39) mustered only two hits -- a two-out single in the first by Jayce Boyd and a leadoff single in the seventh by Dustin Lawley. Angel Cuan and Chasen Bradford tossed two scoreless relief innings apiece. Box

A - GREENVILLE 6, SAVANNAH 4: Jake Kuebler surrendered six runs (five earned) in four innings.

Trailing by two runs in the ninth, Phillip Evans had a leadoff double and Chad Zurcher walked. But Brandon Nimmo grounded into a double play and Kyle Johnson flied out.

Mets agree to terms on 44th overall pick Michael Fulmer


According to ESPN's Adam Rubin, Oklahoma high school right-hander Michael Fulmer, the 44th overall pick in the draft, has agreed to terms with the Mets, he tweeted Thursday night. "Haven't signed paper yet. Just agreed to a deal," he wrote. Fulmer had committed to the University of Arkansas.

Scouting director Chad MacDonald said on draft day: “Big, physical right-hander. If you like 92 to 97 mph with plus sink and a plus breaking ball you’re going to like this guy. … There were three really good high school pitchers from Oklahoma, and they’re all in the same conversation for me.”

Said Paul DePodesta: "The first word out of one of our scout's mouth was, ‘This guy doesn’t like hitters.’ I think he had me sold right then that this guy pitches aggressively. ... We wanted to take a bat up top if we could get one we thought had a chance to get an impact, because we were hopeful there was a potential impact arm for us at 44. The guy we had circled the whole time was Michael Fulmer. And we were thrilled when he was actually there."
