Mets Daily Farm Report- 8/25/13: Gsellman Shoves (I think that's alliterative)

Catch up on all of yesterday’s minor league action from around the Mets farm system!

*All results from games played on Saturday, August 24th 2013

AAA - Las Vegas 51's (76-57)______________________________________

SALT LAKE CITY 10, LAS VEGAS 8 (Box)

The 51s made it seven straight last night and opened a bit of breathing room in their quest for a division title. Matt Fox was stellar in six innings of work and Robert Carson and Greg Burke made the one-run lead hold up out the pen. Both 51s runs came in the third on RBI from Zach Lutz and Kirk Nieuwenhuis, and now Vegas finds themselves three up with a magic number of eight.

AA - Binghamton Mets (82-51)_____________________________________

BINGHAMTON 10, AKRON 2 (Box)

GORSKI!

Also, there's this:

But mostly, this:

Hi-A - St. Lucie Mets (29-27 // 66-57)_______________________

ST. LUCIE @ FORT MYERS PPD (RAIN)

Florida State League life.

Lo-A - Savannah Sand Gnats (29-30 // 72-56)_____________

SAVANNAH 6 v. WEST VIRGINIA 1 (7) (Box)

Rain delayed the start and ended it early, but in between the drops, Steve Matz was dealing.

SS-A Brooklyn Cyclones (33-31)_______________________________

BROOKLYN 2, VERMONT 0 (Box)

In arguably the best Mets minor league pitching perofrmance of the year, Robert Gsellman dominated the Lake Monsters over eight innings and helped move Brooklyn back into a first place tie with Aberdeen. Mixing his fastball, change-up, and breaking ball, Gsellman struck out 13 Lake Monsters and induced a lot of week contact otherwise. A two-run home run by LJ Mazzilli in the first is all he would need, and despite the Cyclones bats not adding to the lead, this game never felt like it was in doubt. It was also two hours and three minutes, which allowed me to get a late dinner of local beet salad and pork belly confit. So there's that.

  • SS Gavin Cecchini: 1-2, 2 BB; Of course I missed his one hit while struggling with parking. Was 4.47 to first on a slow chopper. Hopefully the ankle is still keeping him from running at full speed. Kept the bat on his shoulder for two walks after that.
  • 2B LJ Mazzilli: 1-3, HR (2), R, 2 RBI, BB, K; I've done some solid ranting on the podcast, but just wait for the one this week about the parking situation in Vermont. I missed basically all the offense in the game because of it.
  • LF Jared King: 0-4, 2 K
  • C Tomas Nido: 0-3; Has struggled with the bat this year, but his receiving skills seem to have improved, and he made some loud contact.
  • RHP Robert Gsellman: 8 IP, 2 H, 0 R, 1 BB, 13 K; Fastball sat 90-92, but touched 94-95. He commands it well for a Penn League guy. Change is already a close to average offering, and the curve showed some potential (though he had issues staying on top of it as the game went on, not that it mattered). Brooklyn's rotation rightly hasn't gotten the same amount of attention as last year, but Gsellman's legit.

R - Kingsport Mets (35-26)_______________________________

BLUEFIELD 6, KINGSPORT 1 (Box)

Persio Reyes very efficiently allowed six of his nine baserunners to score, but fortunately for the K-Mets, every other team in the division lost as well. They remain a half-game ahead of Greeneville with six to play.

  • SS Amed Rosario: 0-2, RBI, BB, CS (6)
  • CF Champ Stuart: 1-3, 2B, BB, 2 K
  • 3B Pedro Perez: 1-3, 2B, R, BB, K; Perez intrigues me. If he can stick at third long term and clean up some issues with his swing, he's a potential sleeper.
  • RHP Persio Reyes: 4.2 IP, 5 H, 6 R, 3 BB, 8 K; The three walks tied his season high in a game, so that's nice at least.

R - GCL Mets (18-38)_______________________________

GCL NATS 2, GCL METS 0 (Box)

At this point I wonder if the GCL Nats haunt these guys' dreams.

Star of the Night

Robert Gsellman, naturally

Goat of the Night

Nothing too egregious, so I guess it falls to Persio Reyes.
