Daily Mets Farm System Report - 5/20

New York Mets Daily Farm System Report - Results from the night of Wednesday May 19, 2010.

The Usual Suspects

AAA - Buffalo

  • SS Ruben Tejada: 1-3, RBI (.290/.333/.355)
  • 3B Mike Hessman: 1-2, 3 R, HR, 2 RBI, 3 BB (.319/.409/.715); is a .715 slugging percentage impressive?
  • 1B Val Pascucci: 1-4, R, 2B, 2 RBI, BB (.200/.259/.600)
  • RF Jesus Feliciano: 1-5, 2B, R (.368/.422/.444)
  • DH Mike Jacobs: 3-5, 2 R, 2B, RBI, K (.271/.321/.510)
  • C Josh Thole: 0-2, R, BB, K (.194/.267/.312); nice to see him back in the lineup so quickly
  • SP Dylan Owen: 7.0 IP, 3 ER, 6 H, 1 BB, 7 K, 0 HR; did a good job in his first start after being promoted

AA - Binghamton

  • CF Kirk Nieuwenhuis: 3-5, R, 2B, RBI (.302/.339/.475); snapped out of a little dry spell
  • 2B Reese Havens: 1-5, K, CS (.267/.267/.333); also dropped a pop-up
  • 1B Nick Evans: 1-3, RBI, K, SF (.289/.376/.529)
  • DH Marshall Hubbard: 0-4, 3 K (.269/.340/.473)
  • SP Mike Antonini: 5.0 IP, 4 ER, 6 H, 1 BB, 2 K, 1 HR (3-4, 4.84, 44.2 IP, 44 H, 6 BB, 23 K, 6 HR); another less-than-insipring outing for Antonini, who seems to be spending too much time in the strike zone

Hi-A - St. Lucie

  • LF Eric Campbell: 2-5, 2B, CS (.346/.419/.537)
  • CF Sean Ratliff: 1-4, K (.290/.333/.490)
  • 2B Josh Satin: 2-4, 2B, RBI, 2 K (.336/.424/.478)
  • 1B Stefan Welch: 1-4, R, 3B, RBI, 2 K (.307/.352/.467); Welch has four triples on the season—strikes me as odd
  • SP Kyle Allen: 3.1 IP, 2 ER, 3 H, 4 BB, 1 K, 0 HR, WP (3-2, 5.40 ERA, 38.1 IP, 37 H, 28 BB, 22 K, 3 HR); what happened?

Lo-A Savannah

  • SS Wilmer Flores: 1-4 (.352/.407/.562)
  • CF Juan Lagares: 2-3, BB, CS (.302/.320/.517)
  • DH Nick Santomauro: 0-3, BB, 2 K (.125/.167/.150); only 40 at-bats but I'm expecting more from him
  • 3B Jefrey Marte: 0-4, 4 K (.212/.325/.317); also committed a throwing error—ouch
  • RF Cesar Puello: 0-3, K (.217/.294/.254)
  • 2B Alonzo Harris: 0-4, K (.236/.253/.340); floundered from the leadoff spot for a change
  • SP Jimmy Fuller: 6 IP, 2 ER, 4 H, 3 BB, 8 K, 0 HR (5-2, 1.95 ERA, 50.2 IP, 42 H, 13 BB, 49 K, 0 HR); pitched well in a losing effort

Star of the Night

I'll go with DJ Wabick in Buffalo, if only because I may never get the chance again. In left field to make up for the absence of Jason Pridie—who's now on the DL—Wabick went 2-for-3 with a walk and a bases-loaded double in the seventh that cleared the bases. Wabick started in Binhamton last season, and did okay but wasn't anything special, hitting .296/.324/.401. That's right in line with his career averages in the minors: mediocre power, mediocre patience, some contact ability. That's just not enough for a corner outfield-first base type, and he's found himself without playing time since being promoted to Buffalo earlier this month (the promotion coming because they didn't really have room for him in Binghamton, either). At 26, Wabick is organizational filler.

Goat of the Night: Jefry Marte, who went 0-for-4 with a throwing error and four strikeouts. He's repeating Savannah, and thus far he's looking just as bad as he did last season. He is walking a little more, striking out a little less, but it's still a .212 average with marginal power, and the defense is still horrible. He's still young, but right now Marte has the distinction of being the biggest disappointment in the Mets' system.

System Roundup

  • Buffalo scored four in the seventh inning to secure a 10-6 victory over Charlotte. Former big leaguer Scott Elarton gave up five of those runs while only managing to record a single out, as the Bisons batted around and knocked four doubles during the inning. Dylan Owen pitched seven strong innings.
  • Binghamton tried to rally back from a 6-1 deficit in the ninth inning, but it was too little, too late as they lost to Bowie, 6-4. The B-Mets received multi-hit games from Kirk Nieuwenhuis and three more unlikely sources: Carlos Guzman, Mike Nickeas (who is having a great season), and Jose Coronado.
  • Daytona beat St. Lucie once again, 7-2. They jumped out to an early lead on Stefan Welch's RBI triple but were held scoreless the rest of the game, as Kyle Allen continued to flounder.
  • Savannah saw a good pitching performance from Jim Fuller, but Augusta's Kyle Vazquez and Devan Kline shut down the Sand Gnats' offense as Savannah lost 3-1. Augusta's sweep over Savannah puts the Gnats in second place by a game.
