New York Mets Daily Farm System Report- 8/19/12: "Shipping Up to Boston" is already spoken for, Mr. McHugh

Clearly Collin McHugh isn't just a second deck player.

AAA - Buffalo Bisons (62-66)_______________________________________


Collin McHugh likes pitching in Boston. Making a return trip to the Futures at Fenway game, McHugh baffled the PawSox for seven innings. Thankfully, he wasn't the PTBNL in the Shoppach deal, but I bet Boston is kicking themselves for not asking for him. Not much from the Bisons offense, but a solo shot from Josh Rodriguez and an RBI groundout from Brad Emaus were more than enough to power the Bisons to victory.

AA - Binghamton Mets (60-66)_____________________________________


Flying Squirrels starter Chris Heston shut down the B-Mets, while Cory Mazzoni did not quite shut down the Flying Squirrels. There's a lot of 0fers below you guys, so avert your eyes.

Hi-A - St. Lucie Mets (77-45)________________________________________


After Jacob Degrom's outing was cut short by a rain delay, it was up to the St. Lucie pen to hold down a 5-1 lead. They blew that one, as well as an 8-7 lead in the ninth, handing the Jupiter Hammerheads sole posession of first place in the process. On the plus side, Alonzo Harris continues to hit, smashing his eighth home run of the season and scoring three times.

Lo-A - Savannah Sand Gnats (24-30 // 65-56)__________________________________


Savannah got their doors blown off by Hickory for the second straight night. If you want to know why, it might have something to do with the number of prospects whose stats are listed below. And I had to add Lawley to the list. He's a stretch.

    Short Season A - Brooklyn Cyclones (35-23)__________________________________


    The Cyclones ruined Steve Schmidt's night out with a rather lethargic performance from the Brooklyn bats. Luis Mateo was just okay on the bump, and he has 'struggled' to a 5.06 ERA in August. (He also ha a 23:1 K:BB ratio for what it is worth).

  • CF Brandon Nimmo: 0-4, 2 K
  • SS Philip Evans: 1-4, K
  • C Kevin Plawecki: 0-3, BB, 2 K
  • 2B Juan Carlos Gamboa: 2-4, R
  • RHP Luis Mateo: L, 5 IP, 5 H, 2 ER, 1 BB, 4 K

Appalachian League (R) - Kingsport Mets (19-35)__________________________________


Normally I don't have much to say about the Appalachian League games, but I would like to point out that Akeel Morris has a 14:3 K:BB ratio in his last 8 innings of work. Yeah I know, but it's at least a little encouraging.

Star of the Night

Collin McHugh likes pitching in those big stadiums I guess. Hope that translates to Citi Field.

Goat of the Night

The St. Lucie bullpen. Woof.
