Mets Daily Farm System Report - 7/12

New York Mets Daily Farm System Report - Results from the night of Sunday July 11, 2010.

For anyone that didn't catch it, St. Lucie's Jeurys Familia appeared in the 8th inning of last night's Futures Game.  He consistently threw in the mid-90's but was ineffective, allowing three straight doubles before he was able to end the inning on a groundout.  Watch the video of one of those hits here.

The Usual Suspects

AAA - Buffalo (46-44)

  • RF Fernando Martinez: 1-4, K (.257/.320/.437)

  • REHAB ALERT: SP Oliver Perez: 5.0 IP, 0 ER, 3 H, 5 BB, 3 K, 0 HR; there’s the walk-happy Ollie we all know and love, right?

Star of the Night

My star is Angel Cuan. It wasn't a great day for any offensive player, and I think Cuan had the best day of any pitcher, going six-plus innings and allowing one run, walking none and striking out five. Cuan is a small lefty with a small fastball (mid-80s) and no real plus pitch; his change and curve are both no better than average pitches. He throws strikes and has an idea of what to do on the mound however, and he's lefthanded, so he has a chance as a reliever at some point. More likely, however, he's going to get pummeled at higher levels, where control just isn't enough.

If there was any doubt, the Goat is Lachlan Hodge. Terrible. Just terrible.

System Roundup

  • Buffalo scored an insurance run in the eighth inning on Sunday to make the score 4-2, but it wasn’t enough. Tobi Stoner and Brian Bruney combined to give up two runs in the eighth to tie the game, and Bruney loaded the bases in the ninth before being lifted for Michael O’Connor. D’Angelo Jimenez then hit a walk-off single to win the game for Rochester, 5-4. Ollie Perez, up from St, Lucie, continued his rehab but wasn’t very effective, and Stoner was worse in relief. On the positive side, both Justin Turner and Mike Cervenak had two-hit games. Boxscore
  • A six-run fourth inning proved to be Binghamton’s undoing on Sunday, as they lost to New Hampshire, 8-6. Mark Cohoon endured yet another rough outing, a definite 180 from his success down in Savannah. It was at least a little odd that the Mets chose to skip him past St. Lucie. Roy Merritt followed Cohoon with a truly horrific outing, walking all four batters he faced. Kirk Nieuwenhuis did continue his hot streak, however, chipping in a double and a homer. Boxscore
  • Richard Lucas and Jordany Valdespin hit home runs in the fifth as St. Lucie jumped out to a 4-0 lead, but Brad Holt imploded in the sixth and Charlotte scored four to tie the game. The game remained tied at 4 until the bottom of the ninth when Rhiner Cruz found himself with the bases loaded and one out. Cruz then threw one past catcher Michael Barrett to bring home the winning run. Nothing like a walk-off passed ball. Boxscore
  • Savannah’s game against Asheville was suspended in the eighth inning, just after Savannah had taken the lead on a two-run double by Travis Ozga. The game will be resumed today at 5:30. Boxscore
  • Brooklyn beat Lowell, 4-1. Jeff Flagg scored two runs, knocking a double and a solo homer, while Darrell Ceciliani also had two hits. Angel Cuan was the real star though, throwing six-plus innings of one-run baseball, walking none and striking out five. Boxscore
  • Lachlan Hodge more-or-less singlehandedly lost the game for Kingsport on Sunday, as Johnson City won, 10-7. Hodge gave up seven runs in less than two innings, negating a strong day from the Kingsport offense. Aderlin Rodriguez had two more doubles, and catcher Albert Cordero hit a three-run home run. Boxscore
  • Juan Urbina rebounded from his disastrous last outing to pitch well, and the GCL Mets overcame 12 strikeouts to score two in the fourth to win it, 2-1, over the GCL Marlins. Boxscore
