Daily Mets Farm System Report - 6/21

New York Mets Daily Farm System Report - Results from the night of Sunday June 20, 2010.

The Usual Suspects

AAA - Buffalo (36-34)

  • RF Fernando Martinez: 0-5, 2 K (.254/.298/.430); just 3 for his last 21
  • RF Val Pascucci: 0-1 (.220/.333/.512)
  • LF Lucas Duda: 1-5, 2B (.208/.240/.417); going through a bit of an adjustment period here
  • 1B Mike Jacobs: 1-4, 2B, BB, K (.255/.301/.472)
  • SP Tobi Stoner: 5.1 IP, 2 ER, 7 H, 1 BB, 7 K, 0 HR (3-6, 5.16 ERA, 75.0 IP, 93 H, 24 BB, 58 K, 9 HR); a few too many hits and a high pitch count forced an early exit, but the K:BB ratio is nice
  • RP Manny Acosta: 1.0 IP, 0 ER, 0 H, 1 BB, 1 K, 0 HR (1-2, 3.91 ERA, 23.0 IP, 21 H, 11 BB, 22 K, 2 HR)
  • RP Bobby Parnell: 1.0 IP, 0 ER, 0 H, 0 BB, 1 K, 0 HR (1-1, 4.14 ERA, 41.1 IP, 36 H, 17 BB, 42 K, 3 HR)

AA - Binghamton (34-35)

  • CF Sean Ratliff: 1-4, R, HR, RBI, 2 K (.269/.269/.462); first Double-A home run

  • 2B Josh Satin: 0-4, 2 K (.320/.346/.480)
  • 3B Eric Campbell: 1-4, R, 2 K (.317/.374/.529)
  • SP Michael Antonini: 7.0 IP, 2 ER, 4 H, 1 BB, 6 K, 1 HR (4-5, 4.11 ERA, 81.0 IP, 75 H, 12 BB, 55 K, 12 HR); nice to see him rebound from a rough start last week, but homers are still worrisome

Hi-A - St. Lucie (31-33)

  • SS Jordany Valdespin: 2-4, (.305/.333/.483); second-straight two-hit game
  • 2B Wilfredo Tovar: 0-5, K (.277/.311/.347)
  • 1B Stefan Welch: 0-2, R, BB (.301/.359/.467)

Lo-A Savannah (42-28)

  • SS Wilmer Flores: 2-4, R, 2B, RBI, BB, K (.279/.342/.433); all right Wilmer, have about four more of these in a row
  • CF Juan Lagares: 3-5, 2 R, 2B, RBI (.300/.318/.459)
  • DH Nick Santomauro: 0-4, R (.150/.189/.180); I love seeing OBAs that are higher than SLGs, especially when the OBA is just .189
  • 3B Jefrey Marte: 3-4, 2 R, RBI (.253/.335/.367); batting average over .250—now if he can just find his power
  • RF Cesar Puello: 0-2, RBI, BB, K (.249/.336/.302)
  • DH Pedro Zapata: 1-5, RBI, 2 K (.290/.356/.379)
  • SP Jim Fuller: 5.0 IP, 1 ER, 7 H, 1 BB, 2 K, 1 HR (6-2, 1.94 ERA, 83.1 IP, 66 H, 24 BB, 79 K, 1 HR); also gave up four unearned runs

SS-A Brooklyn (2-1)

Star of the Night

Our Star of the Night is J.R. House, who went 4-for-4 in a losing effort for Buffalo on Sunday night. The veteran catcher has an interesting story behind him. A former high school quarterback, House had to make a decision between football and baseball. He opted for baseball and hit a ton during most of his minor league career, emerging as one of the Pirates’ top catching prospects. Unfortunately, he repeatedly got hit by the injury bug. Tommy John surgery here, a muscle tear there. A few bruised ribs, a hernia, even mononucleosis. Finally rotator cuff surgery ended his career with the Bucs in 2004, and House actually decided to go back to football, where he spent a season as West Virginia’s third string quarterback. He didn’t like that any better and caught on with the Astros in 2006. He returned to the bigs that season but never really got more than a taste over the next three seasons. He moved on to the Orioles in 2007 and returned to the Astros in 2008. The Royals picked him up, but he really didn’t play well in Omaha, which is how the 30-year-old became the Bisons’ backup catcher.

Our Goat is designated hitter Marshall Hubbard who went 0-for-4 with three strikeouts for Binghamton.

System Roundup

  • After Russ Adams doubled home J.R. House and Justin Turner singled home Adams to tie Indianapolis 3-3 in the seventh, Buffalo lost it in 12, 7-3. Adam Pettyjohn gave up four runs in the top of the 12th, three of those coming off Jeff Clement and Brandon Moss doubles. Buffalo dropped three of four to Indy over the weekend.
  • After Michael Antonini held Trenton to just two runs over the first seven innings, Derrick Ellison promptly gave up a two-run home run two Austin Krum in the eighth. Trenton relievers Tim Norton and Grant Duff held the B-Mets scoreless over the final two innings to give Trenton the victory, 4-3. The Binghamton offense just couldn’t get much done, Sean Ratliff’s first Eastern League homer aside. Luis Hernandez was the sole B-Met with two hits.
  • Catcher Juan Torres singled home two runs in the second, and St. Lucie scored three more in the third to win 5-3 over Palm Beach. Eric Beaulac looked great until getting gassed in the seventh, but the bullpen held the Cardinals scoreless over the final couple innings. Five Mets—Ryan Mollica, Jordany Valdespin, Joey August, Juan Torres, and Richard Lucas—had two hits apiece.
  • Jimmy Fuller wasn’t his usual sharp self, but the Savannah offense picked him up anyway, as the Sand Gnats beat Augusta, 9-5. Jefry Marte and Juan Lagares had three hits apiece, and eight different players had an RBI. With the victory, Savannah moved a game into first place in the Southern Division of the SAL.
  • The Cyclones managed just two hits over seven innings against Staten Island starter Michael O’Brien, and they couldn’t get any off the two relievers that followed. Brooklyn wound up losing, 2-1, wasting a solid effort by starter Angel Cuan, who allowed just one run over six innings.  With the big club off tonight, watch the Cyclones game tonight at 7PM on SNY.
