New York Mets Daily Farm System Report - Results from the night of Monday, May 10 2010
First let me just say congrats to The Animal for a long overdue call-up; may your hammer be mighty.
The Usual Suspects
AAA - Buffalo
- LF Chris Carter: 1-4, 2B, 2 RBI, R (.336/.390/.611); Fittingly leaves Buffalo on an 11-game hit streak; I really hope this guy gets ab's
- SS Ruben Tejada: 4-4, R (.309/.359/.383); Raised his AVG by over 20 points
- 3B Mike Hessman: 2-5, 2 2B, 2 RBI, R, 3 K (.294/.355/.633)
- RF Jesus Feliciano: 3-5, 2 R, SB(3) (.349/.379/.434); For the faction that actually wanted Carter in the minors, there's absolutely no excuse why this veteran lefty didn't get FCat's spot
- SP Pat Misch: 6.1 IP, 3 ER, 6 H, 2 BB, 7 K (2-0, 4.15, 34.2 IP, 40 H, 9 BB, 19 K, 3 HR)
- RP Bobby Parnell: 1.2 IP, 3 ER, 3 H, 2 BB, 2 K, 1 HR (0-1, 4.76, 17 IP, 16 H, 13 BB, 15 K, 1 HR); Should have traded him when we had the chance
- Still no word on the severity of Fernando's apparent leg injury or any timeframe for return.
AA - Binghamton
- CF Kirk Nieuwenhuis: 2-5, 2 2B, 2 RBI, R, 2 K (.304/.338/.504)
- 1B Nick Evans: 0-4, 2 K, BB (.305/.396/.558)
- 3B Zack Lutz: 1-5, HR(8), 2 K, E(1) (.286/.423/.552) Off Sox super-prospect RHP Casey Kelly no less
- LF Lucas Duda: 2-5, 2B, RBI, K (.296/.427/.557); The unstoppable force that is Lutz & Duda keeps on rolling
- SP Brad Holt: 4 IP, 0 ER, 4 H, 2 BB, 7 K (0-2, 9.72, 8.1 IP, 15 H, 5 BB, 10 K, 1 HR); Finally back on the right track; apparently Brad Holt is NOT a bastard.
Hi-A - St. Lucie
- 2B Reese Havens: 0-4, R, K, BB (.279/.354/.512)
- DH Josh Satin: 3-3, 2 HR(3), 2B, 4 RBI, 2 R (.317/418/.475); Satin had his Wheaties this morning
- CF Sean Ratliff: 1-5, RBI, R, 2 K (.269/.320/.479); His K:BB thus far is a brutal 38:8
- 3B Eric Campbell: 0-4, RBI, 2 K (.327/.410/.515)
- SP Eric Beaulac: 5 IP, 3 ER, 9 H, 1 BB, 4 K (1-1, 5.23, 20.2 IP, 25 H, 17 BB, 12 K)
Lo-A - Savannah
- SS Wilmer Flores: 2-4, SB(2), E(8) (.333/.381/.574); The bat is on fire, the glove not so much
- 3B Jefry Marte: 1-3, RBI, K, BB, SB(2) (.222/.325/.319)
- LF Nick Santomauro: 0-4, 4 K; Rough 1-16 to start the season after straining his right elbow this spring
- RHP Armando Rodriguez: 4 IP, 0 ER, 1 H, 3 BB, 5 K (2-3, 3.06, 35.1 IP, 25 H, 15 BB, 36 K, 0 HR); After walking in a run following a first inning error, Little Jenrry (who is actually older than Mejia) settled down to dominate the BlueClaws
- LHP Chris Hilliard: 4 IP, 0 ER, 0 H, 1 BB, 3 K; In his first appearance of the season, Hilliard (yet another impressive college lefty in Savannah) was downright awesome
Star of the Night
The star last night was clearly St. Lucie 2B/DH Josh Satin (pictured) who dropped a couple of bombs on his way to a 3 for 3, 4 RBI performance. Like 2009, Satin has gotten off to a very nice start though last year in Savannah he faded as the summer heated up. He actually looked a lot like Reese Havens from the right side when the Mets made him a 6th round selection out of Cal (5 rounds later than Havens) showing some nice pop and the ability to take some walks. Though he doesn't have quite the power or plate discipline that Havens does, Satin currently looks like a nice player to have in the organization that profiles as a possible IF utility man with pop if he can continue his climb towards the majors. He was featured in this interesting 'Campus Cribs' piece on SI.com back in '08. Honorable Mention to the whole Savannah pitching staff from last night for their stellar 9 IP, 0 ER, 2 H, 3 BB, 9 K performance.
Goat of the Night: RHP Clint Everts who went 1.1 IP, giving up 4 ER on 4 hits and 3 walks. I really liked the signing of the former #5 overall pick but the fact that he cleared waivers this spring says a lot. He looked rejuvenated after switching to relief last year but with an ERA approaching 6, he's got to get it going if he ever wants to reach the majors.
- Buffalo dropped their series opener with Lousiville 7-6 in a game that looked like a win until RHP Bobby Parnell came in and coughed it right up.
- Down in Double-A, for the second time this season the B-Mets got to Boston uberprospect RHP Casey Kelly early and despite RHP Clint Everts' best efforts (hey that rhymes), Binghamton hung on to win 7-5.
- St. Lucie earned an 8-3 win over the Manatees on the strength of a big day by 2B/DH Josh Satin and an all-around solid performance by the pitching staff.
- Savannah managed a series split by squeaking past the Phillies Lo-A affiliate Lakewood 2-1 thanks to (another) stellar job by the Gnats pitchers and a 2-run rally in the 8th started by personal favorite, C Dock Doyle.
