Lots of promotions and demotions to go over, courtesy of the @MetsFarmReport twitter account.

LHP Robert Carson was promoted to Buffalo. RHP Gonzalez Germen goes back to Binghamton after his spot start Thursday. LHP Adam Kolarek moves up to Binghamton, and RHP Logan Verrett takes his place in St. Lucie. No big surprises there, as all those promotions are arguably overdue to varying extents.

Also, Adam Rubin is reporting that Zack Wheeler will be promoted to Buffalo soon.

Now let's head to last night's action.

AAA - Buffalo Bisons (52-55)_______________________________________


Bisons only managed five hits against the Bats, and Dylan Owen gave up a two-run home run to Neftali Soto in the sixth that broke a 1-1 tie. Buffalo has now lost seven of eight as their yo-yo season continues.

REHAB ALERT: Mike Baxter went 1-4 with a K while playing LF.

AA - Binghamton Mets (50-55)_____________________________________



Binghamton played two last night to make up Thursday's rainout, and they got a pair of nice outings from Darin Gorski and Cory Mazzoni, who each tossed six innings of one-run ball.

  • CF Juan Lagares: 1-3, 3B, R, K // 2-2, 2B; You know, he's like 0-30 in the games I've seen him in, then as soon as he leaves town he starts hitting again.
  • 3B Jefry Marte: 1-3, 2B, R // 1-3
  • DH Reese Havens: 1-2, RBI, BB, K // DNP
  • 1B/DH Allan Dykstra: 0-1, 2 BB, K // 0-3, 2 K
  • 2B Wilmer Flores: 1-3, K // 1-2, R, BB, K; Played both games at 2B. Interesting.
  • SS Wilfredo Tovar: DNP // 1-3; After seeing him earlier this week, pretty sure he could play an above average major league SS right now.
  • C Juan Centeno: 0-2, 2 K // DNP
  • C Francisco Pena: DNP // 0-1, BB, HBP
  • RHP Cory Mazzoni: W, 6 IP, 1 ER, 4 H, 2 BB, 5 K
  • LHP Darin Gorski W, 6 IP, 1 ER, 3 H, 0 BB, 6 K, 1 HR; Kind of figured the home run rate would spike this year, didn't expect the jump in walks, though. But nice start for the GORSKI.
REHAB ALERT: Frank Frank pitched a scoreless inning in Game 1 to pick up the save.

Hi-A - St. Lucie Mets (16-19 // 65-38)________________________________________


A back and forth affair featuring lead changes galore, the Mets entered the top of the ninth with a 6-4 lead after a two out, two run single off the bat of T.J. Rivera in the sixth. Jack Leatherisch took the mound and promptly got the first two outs. The third one was a little trickier as Leather Rocket gave up a walk, hit the next batter and then gave up a single to cut the lead to 6-5. But with the tying run on third, Leathersich induced a groundout and St. Lucie escaped with their fourth straight win.

Lo-A - Savannah Sand Gnats (57-45)__________________________________


No comment.

    Short Season A - Brooklyn Cyclones (23-16)__________________________________


    Luis Cessa was outdueled by Batavia starter Joe Cuda, which has to be some sort of pseudonym. The Cyclones managed just a scant three hits and fell a game behind Hudson Valley in the McNamara division.

  • CF Brandon Nimmo: 0-4, 2 K; Struggles against lefties continue. Batting .163/.281/.245 against southpaws this year.
  • SS Philip Evans: 0-3, BB, 3 K
  • PH Kevin Plawecki: 0-1
  • 2B Juan Carlos Gamboa: 1-3, K
  • RHP Luis Cessa: L, 5 IP, 1 ER, 6 H, 1 BB, 3 K
  • RHP Matt Bowman: 2 IP, 0 ER, 2 H, 0 BB, 2 K; 2012 draftee and Lincecum clone (minus the stuff) has a non-zero chance to be an interesting relief prospect. Though with 3 pitches I wouldn't be shocked if the Mets try him as a starter next year.

    Appalachian League (R) - Kingsport Mets (11-23)__________________________________


    Kingsport only wins doubleheaders.

    Star of the Night

    Binghamton got a pair of nice starts from Cory Mazzoni and Darin Gorski, so we have a pair of starts tonight.

    Goat of the Night

    Jim Fuller's start against Rome last week was smooth sailing as the little lefty twirled six shutout innings. Last night was not quite as good.
