Mets Daily Farm Report - 8/9/13: Offense in Vegas, Nimmo heating up

Double D had three hits last night - USA TODAY Sports

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

*All results from games played on Thursday, August 8th, 2013*

AAA - Las Vegas 51s (63-54)__________________________________

OKLAHOMA CITY 3, LAS VEGAS 12 (Box)

Brandon Hicks and Matt den Dekker combined for six hits, five runs, and seven runs batted in to lead Vegas past OK City 12-3. Hicks in particular had a day, with two home runs, a double, and two walks in five trips to the plate. Jacob deGrom kept the opposing bats at bay, striking out six and walking one while pitching into the seventh. Since all three runs he allowed were unearned, his AAA ERA dropped to 4.02.

Roster Alert:

This move coincides with a Mets West Coast trip as well as the impending birth of John Buck's child. Could be coincidence, could be a calculated move. I'll let you decide.

AA - Binghamton Mets (73-44)_____________________________________

ALTOONA 0, BINGHAMTON 1 (Box)

Darin Gorski continued to pitch exceptionally, tossing 7.2 innings of shutout baseball to lead Binghamton over Altoona 1-0. Since returning from the disabled list on June 12th, Gorski has a 1.76 ERA over 51 double-A innings. Not much to speak of offensively, but of note is Jeff Walters, who came on in the ninth to record his 33rd save. He's now up to 51 strikeouts against just 12 walks in 48.2 innings. Get familiar with his name. He'll be in the mix for the 2014 Mets bullpen.

Hi-A - St. Lucie Mets (23-19 / 60-49)________________________________________

ST. LUCIE 3, BRADENTON 5 (Box)

  • CF Kyle Johnson: 1-4, R, K
  • 2B T.J. Rivera: 1-3, R, BB, K
  • 3B Dustin Lawley: 0-3, BB, K
  • 1B Kevin Plawecki: 2-4, R, 2 RBI, K; It's been a productive year for Plawecki, although in retrospect it may have made more sense to start him at this level.
  • SS Matt Reynolds: 1-3; Hasn't improved since the all-star break. He's actually been worse.
  • RHP Matthew Bowman: 5 IP, 6 H, 3 R, 3 ER, 3 BB, 5 K; After a hot start following his promotion to St. Lucie, Bowman has cooled off since the beginning of July, with 17 walks in his last 33.2 innings.
  • RHP Cody Satterwhite: 2 IP, 3 H, R, ER, 0 BB, 6 K (!); I'm not entirely sure where Cody came from but he now has 20 strikeouts in 12 innings since joining St. Lucie in July.

Lo-A - Savannah Sand Gnats (22-19 / 67-45)__________________________________

HICKORY 3, SAVANNAH 6 (Box)

A resurgent Brandon Nimmo had three hits to lead Savannah to victory Thursday night. It's the third time in the last four games Nimmo has had three hits. If you believe in arbitrary time frames (and you shouldn't) I've got a fun one for you; coming into tonight's game, Nimmo is hitting .297/.447/.486 with just 11 strikeouts in 47 plate appearances. A hot finish to the season would be just what the doctor ordered for Nimmo's prospect stock.

Short-A - Brooklyn Cyclones (24-25)

CONNECTICUT 7, BROOKLYN 3 (Box)

Rk - Kingsport Mets (27-19)_____________________________

PULASKI 4, KINGSPORT 7 (Box)

Rk - GCL Mets (14-28)_______________________________
