New York Mets Daily Farm System Report - Results from the night of Thursday, May 20 2010
The Usual Suspects
AAA - Buffalo
- SS Ruben Tejada: 2-3, 2B, 2 R (.299/.341/.370) I guess he's not dizzy anymore
- 3B Mike Hessman: 0-4, 2 K (.306/.381/.672) Didn't have one tonight but here's something for anyone wondering about Hessman's power
- RF Jesus Feliciano: 1-3, 2B, 2 RBI, K (.367/.417/.450)
- C Josh Thole: 2-3, 2B (.193/.258/.313)
- SP Pat Misch: 7 IP, 1 ER, 3 H, 1 BB, 4 K, HR (4-0, 3.02, 50.2 IP, 47 H, 10 BB, 29 K, 4 HR); Good timing for a 16 IP, 1 ER, 7 H, 10 K stretch over his last 2 starts
- RP Elmer Dessens: 1 IP, 0 ER, 2 H, 1 K (5-0, 6 S, 2.12, 17 IP, 20 H, 3 BB, 18 K, 0 HR)
- REHAB ALERT: RP Ryota Igarashi: 1 IP, 0 ER, 1 H, 0 BB; 19 pitches, 13 strikes; Looks like he's just about ready, don't be surprised to see him with the big club tomorrow
- ROSTER MOVES: To recap the last couple day's additions, in the wake of a flurry of injured players (including Jason Pridie) and call-ups the Herd added a couple of Canucks and a couple pitchers: former Jerry favorite IF Jonathan Malo and the equally versatile OF Manny Garcia as well as RHP Dylan Owen and reliever RHP Jose De La Torre.
AA - Binghamton
- CF Kirk Nieuwenhuis: 1-4, R (.301/.337/.470)
- 1B Nick Evans: 0-4, (.280/.366/.512); .162 over his last 10 games
- 3B Zack Lutz: 0-4, R, 2 K, E(3) (.262/.396/.500); .307 in April, .196 in May
- C Mike Nickeas: 1-3, RBI, BB (.328/.416/.403)
- SP Eddie Kunz: 5 IP, 4 ER (1 unearned), 8 H, 3 BB, 3 K (3-3, 6.34, 38.1 IP, 39 H, 24 BB, 24 K, 2 HR); By any measure this starting experiment is failing
Hi-A - St. Lucie
- 2B Josh Satin: 1-5, K (.331/.417/.468)
- CF Sean Ratliff: 2-5, K (.294/.3335/.488)
- LF Eric Campbell: 1-3, RBI, R, BB (.336/.413/.521); Moved back to LF to make room for Lucas
- 3B Richard Lucas: 3-5, HR(5), 3 RBI, 2 R, 2 K (.208/.275/.349)
- 1B Stefan Welch: 2-5, 2B, R, 2 K (.310/.353/.471)
- SS Wilfredo Tovar: 0-5, 3 K (.302/.327/.396); Ouch
- SP Eric Beaulac: 5.1 IP, 4 ER, 7 H, 4 BB, 1 K (2-1, 4.28, 33.2, 36 IP, 23 BB, 15 K, 0 HR)
Lo-A - Savannah
- SS Wilmer Flores: 0-4, K (.343/.398/.548); Cooling off a bit (2 for his last 15)
- 3B Jefry Marte: Got the night off
- RF Cesar Puello: 2-4, 2 SB(16) (.225/.299/.261); 16 SB vs. only 2 CS, but only 5 XBH
- LF Juan Lagares: 1-4, 2 RBI (.301/.319/.511)
- 2B Alonzo Harris: 2-4, 2B, RBI, R, K (.243/.260/.351); Unfathomable 40:3 K:BB rate
- LHP Darin Gorski: 5 IP, 1 ER, 8 H, 0 BB, 3 K (1-1, 3.12, 34.2 IP, 35 H, 15 BB, 33 K, 2 HR)
- RHP Taylor Whitenton: 4 IP, 1 ER, 3 H, 0 BB, 7 K (2-1, 2.70, 33.1 IP, 21 H, 20 BB, 37 K, 1 HR)
Star of the Night
For his second outing in a row, LHP Patty Misch gets the gold star. Not quite a CG shutout, last night Misch went 7 IP allowing only 1 run on 3 hits and 1 walk for the win. As I mentioned previously, Misch has amassed 16 IP, 1 ER, 7 H, 10 K over his last 2 starts and has to be getting some consideration for a call-up now that Mets starters are suddenly dropping like flies. And honestly, is anyone here upset with a rotation featuring R.A. Dickey & Pat Misch instead of Oliver Perez & John Maine?
Goat of the Night: RHP Clint Everts. Terrible again (6 hits allowed in only 1.2 IP). Cut soon.
- LHP Pat Misch followed up his CG shutout with yet another fine performance, allowing only 1 run over seven strong in a 3-1 Bisons victory. The Buffalo offense wasn't on fire but they didn't need to be tonight. That makes 7 wins out of their last 9 leaving them a game out of first.
- Quite the opposite of the Bison pitching, the B-Mets hurlers really didn't give the team much of a chance in this 8-4 loss to Bowie. RHP Eddie Kunz was hit up for 5 runs in 5 inning while RHP Clint Everts put this one out of reach (1.2 IP, 2 ER, 6 H) and continued to make his case for Indy Ball. The Binghamton offense is starting to come around but not nearly enough for this one; that makes 8 straight losses.
- Lakeland outlasted St. Lucie in 11 last night 5-4. RHP Eric Beaulac was serviceable, but put the onus on the Mets offense who went 3-for-16 with RISP and left 11 men on base, including 2 in the 11th. Props to 3B Richard Lucas for his bottom of the 9th, 2-out homer to at least extend this one and RHP Emary Frederick who has allowed 1 ER in 18 IP (0.50 ERA) this season. Oh and when the season started I didn't expect it to sound ridiculous when saying 'Mejia got the win' (Miguel Mejia of Lakeland) in reference to a minor league game. Sigh.
- The Gnats broke their 4-game skid with a 5-2 win over Charleston built on the strength of (what else) strong starting pitching. The tandem of LHP Darin Gorski and RHP Taylor Whitenton managed to keep the RiverDog bats at bay while the Savannah offense provided some timely hitting in the form of a tie-breaking, 8th inning, bases-loaded single by LF Juan Lagares. The win moved them back into first place in the Sally.
