Mets Minor League Roundup 9/1: St.Lucie Blows Out Jupiter


Mets Minor League Roundup 9/1:


AAA - TUCSON 3, LAS VEGAS 2: D.J. Mitchell surrendered a tiebreaking run in the ninth. Greg Peavey returned from Binghamton to start the game, a day after Las Vegas clinched a postseason berth. He allowed two runs in 5 2/3 innings. Robert Carson tossed a scoreless inning in his return to the 51s. Box

AA - BINGHAMTON 6, NEW HAMPSHIRE 2: Allan Dykstra was named Binghamton’s team MVP before the game. He was named Eastern League MVP afterward. In between, Dykstra hit a go-ahead two-run homer in the sixth inning. Facing Marcus Walden, Joe Bonfe started a third-inning B-Mets rally with an infield single. A throwing error allowed him to reach second. Three batters later, Josh Rodriguez delivered an RBI single. Meanwhile, after allowing a leadoff double in the first inning, Logan Verrett retired 12 straight hitters. In the fifth, Ryan Schimpf ended the stretch with a single. After striking out Kevin Ahrens, Verrett gave up a two-run homer to Lance Zuwadski to give New Hampshire a 2-1 lead. Binghamton responded in the sixth. Rodriguez led off the frame with his third hit of the night, and Dykstra gave the B-Mets the lead for good with a two-run shot. The B-Mets added three unearned runs against Chad Beck in the seventh. Verrett left the game after five strong innings. He only allowed three hits. Reliever Jim Fuller tossed two scoreless innings to collect his third B-Mets win. Frank Francisco and Adam Kolarek each threw a scoreless inning to preserve the lead as the B-Mets collected their 86th win. The teams complete the regular season Monday. Box

A+ - ST. LUCIE 16, JUPITER 0: St. Lucie completed its season with a 71-60 record, but failed to win either half and qualify for the postseason. After Jeurys Familia tossed a scoreless inning in his first game appearance since June 5 surgery to clean out his right elbow, Domingo Tapia tossed five scoreless innings. Angel Cuan completed the shutout with three scoreless frames to earn his first save. St. Lucie had a five-run third and 10-run fifth. Jayce Boyd went 4-for-5 with three RBIs. Matt Reynolds and Nelfi Zapata also drove in three runs apiece. Kevin Plawecki and Boyd were promoted to Binghamton after the game. Dustin Lawley, already promoted to Las Vegas, won the Florida State League home run title with 25. He finished second with 92 RBIs. Box

Mets Minor League Roundup 8/28: Vegas pitcher deGrom hurt, St.Lucie sacs in winning run, Kingsport walks-off, Gant tosses one-hit shutout for Brooklyn


deGrom

Mets Minor League Roundup 8/28:


AAA - COLORADO SPRINGS 4, LAS VEGAS 3 (8 innings)
LAS VEGAS 12, COLORADO SPRINGS 8: Right-hander Jacob deGrom departed Game 1 after two innings with an apparent injury. The 51s suffered a walk-off loss in the eighth as Justin Hampson suffered the defeat. Las Vegas had loaded the bases in the final regulation inning, but Mike Baxter flied out to end the threat. Ex-Met Xavier Nady had a two-run homer against deGrom before he departed. Dustin Lawley started in left field and went 1-for-4 in his Triple-A debut. Las Vegas then posted a seven-run fourth inning in Game 2 to earn a split. Jamie Hoffmann contributed a three-run homer and Kirk Nieuwenhuis had a two-run homer in the nightcap victory. Box 1, Box 2

AA - BINGHAMTON 7, BOWIE 4: Starter Mark Cohoon's outing ended after two scoreless innings because of a rain delay. Box

A+ - ST. LUCIE 2, CHARLOTTE 1 (10 innings): Rylan Sandoval's sacrifice fly scored Cam Maron in the bottom of the 10th for the walk-off win. Starter Hansel Robles allowed one run on three hits and three walks in eight innings. Randy Fontanez (9-7) earned the win with two no-hit relief innings. St. Lucie remains mathematically alive for a postseason berth with four games remaining, but faces near-impossible odds because the two teams ahead of the Mets in the division finish the season playing head-to-head. Box

A - ROME 4, SAVANNAH 1: Starter Julian Hilario (7-7) allowed three runs on nine hits and and three walks in five innings. Box

Mets News and Notes: First Responder Caps, Niese Trade?, Byrdak, Dickey Books, Davis Charity Event, St.Lucie, Gee


Mets News and Notes:

The Mets have decided to wear first-responder caps pregame but not in-game on Tuesday, on the 11th anniversary of the Sept. 11 attacks. A team spokesman said the decision was made by the team and not Major League Baseball. MLB would not allow the in-game usage last year.

Andy McCullough in the Star-Ledger notes Niese could be a valuable trade piece for the Mets this winter since the club is most deep in starting pitching and a stagnant payroll means the Mets may need to deal an established player such as the southpaw for multiple prospects in order to improve. Writes McCullough:

Baseball officials outside the organization believe Niese could elicit a quality return on the trade market. “People would be interested in [Niese] because he’s a starter who some people see as a No. 3,” one executive said. “Some people see him a little bit like where they saw Gio Gonzalez last year.” ... [Sandy] Alderson can look to his protégé, Oakland general manager Billy Beane, for a blueprint. A survey of competing executives indicated Niese’s value is comparable to Gonzalez and Trevor Cahill, the two starting pitchers the Athletics traded last winter. The executives requested anonymity in order to speak freely about the situation. “You’re looking at about two or three prospects [for Niese],” one executive said. “At least.”

Tim Byrdak pronounced Wednesday's surgery to repair a torn anterior capsule in his left shoulder as well as torn meniscus cartilage in his right knee a success. Byrdak hopes to return to the majors, but the shoulder surgery requires roughly a 12-month recovery time.

St. Lucie's Rafael Montero Pulled after 7.2 innings of No-Hit Baseball



Rafael Montero of the St Lucie Mets was having himself an outstanding game against the Palm Beach Cardinals. Montero pitches for the Class A Advanced Port.St Lucie Mets, and on Tuesday night, he was pulled from the game with two outs in the 7th, without allowing a hit. Why manager Ryan Ellis took him out, I have no idea, but it better have been a good reason. Montero's overall stats for the game include only 3 walks, five strikeouts, while throwing 110 pitches over 7.2 innings. For the year, Rafael is 4-2 with a 2.51 ERA and 51 strikeouts. He is considered a top 10-15 prospect in the organization, and is having a very solid year.

Montero was dominant in this game, and made that clear from the get-go. The St.Lucie Mets were flirting with a team no-hitter, but that ended in the bottom of the ninth when pitcher Kyle Allen gave up a double. It will be very interesting to hear the explanation after the game for pulling Montero. Even though he didn't finish the game, it is still encouraging to know the Mets have another live arm in their farm system. He has been very consistent this season, and this just goes to show that the Mets have another pitcher that is a big part of their future. I am sure this is a performance Rafael Montero will never forget.

Zach Wheeler makes debut for St.Lucie Mets


According to Ian Begley of ESPN NY, Zack Wheeler, the right-handed prospect the Mets obtained from San Francisco in the Carlos Beltran trade, allowed four runs on seven hits in four innings in his organizational debut on Monday night.

Pitching for Single-A St. Lucie against the Dunedin Blue Jays, Wheeler struck out four, didn't walk any and threw one wild pitch.

He induced one groundout and four flyouts while facing 19 batters.

Wheeler was selected with the No. 6 pick of the first round of the 2009 draft.

Talk about first time jitters, YIKES!
