The Usual Suspects

AAA - Buffalo

  • Fernando Martinez: 1-3, RBI, 2 K (.247/.303/.383); 16 K vs. 1 BB so far
  • Ruben Tejada: 1-2, BB, K (.262/.308/.333)
  • Josh Thole: 0-4, 3 K (.167/.235/.264); This guy is really struggling
  • Chris Carter: 1-3, 2B, RBI, BB  (.337/.396/.604); Hit streak at 8
  • Mike Hessman: 1-2, HR(9), 3 RBI, BB, K (.287/.348/.634); Leads the system in homers
  • Dillon Gee: 5 IP, 5 ER, 6 H, 5 BB, 4 K, 1 HR (3-1, 3.67 ERA, 34 1/3 IP, 35 H, 9 BB, 31 K, 2 HR) Scuffling a bit since his hot start
  • Bobby Parnell: 2 IP, 2 R (unearned), 3 H, 2 BB, 3 K 

AA - Binghamton

  • Kirk Nieuwenhuis: 2-5, HR, 3B, 3 RBI, 2 R, SB(10)  (.298/.336/.496); Certainly stuffed the stat sheet
  • Nick Evans: 1-3, K, BB (.325/.412/.602)
  • Zack Lutz: 0-4, 2 K (.287/.422/.553);
  • Lucas Duda: 1-3, 2B, RBI (.272/.41/.534)

Hi-A - St. Lucie

  • Reese Havens: 3-5, HR(2), 2B, 2 RBI (.333/.385/.611); Crushing his way to Binghamton
  • Eric Campbell: 0-4, K, BB (.333/.426/.527); The dream ends at 10 games
  • Sean Ratliff: 2-4, HR(5), 3B, RBI, 2 R, SB(3) (.282/.336/.509) Quietly nice start from the Stanford product
  • Scott Moviel: 6 1/3 IP, 1 ER, 9 H, 0 BB, 4 K (2-2, 5.91, 32 IP, 35 H, 14 BB, 21 K, 1 HR)

Lo-A - Savannah

  • Wilmer Flores: 1-4, 3 K (.313/.361/.541);
  • Jefry Marte: 0-4, K (.213/.324/.311)
  • Cesar Puello: 0-4, 3 K (.252/.336/.301)
  • Brandon Moore: 7 IP, 3 ER, 3 H, 1 BB, 1 HR, 12 K (1-2, 2.83, 28.2 IP, 22 H, 5 BB, 37 K, 3 HR); Most K's in a game for a Mets prospect this season

Star of the Night

Close call but let's go with St. Lucie CF Sean Ratliff.  He has quietly gotten off to a nice start (.282/.336/.509) and while he he'll probably need to shift to a corner OF spot eventually, he's played a nice center for St. Lucie.  In a system with little CF depth beyond Niuewenhuis, let him stay there as long as he can.  The 2008 4th rounder is a big lefty with even bigger power (15 HR in '09) but doesn't possess the plate discipline of a typical Stanford product (see: The Animal) nor does he hit lefties well (.221 as a pro).  In fact, his K:BB as a pro has been 208:49 and might one day end up as his fatal flaw.  I would say he's probably a fringe prospect, depending on his ability to stay in center; but for today Sean Ratliff, you're a star!

Goat of the Night: Savannah RF Cesar Puello.  His 0-4 with 3 K performance last night brings him to 1 for his last 14.

 

Overall, not a great night for the Mets system.  Buffalo lost 5-8 to Indy, Binghamton lost to New Hampshire (and old friend Shawn Bowman) 8-5, St. Lucie was the lone winner, defeating Fort Myers 6-2 and Savannah wasted a nice pitching performance by Brandon Moore, losing 3-1.
