New York Mets Daily Farm System Report - Results from the night of Wednesday June 16, 2010.

The Usual Suspects

AA - Binghamton (31-34)

  • CF Kirk Nieuwenhuis: DNP (.282/.322/.468)
  • CF Sean Ratliff: 3-6, R, RBI, K (.400/.400/.400); a great day for the newly promoted
  • 2B Reese Havens: DNP (.338/.400/.662); still hurt
  • 1B Nick Evans: 2-5, R, 2B (.278/.348/.515)
  • 2B Josh Satin: 3-5, R, 3B, 2 RBI, SO (.300/.300/.500)
  • 3B Eric Campbell: 1-4, R, HR, 2 RBI, BB (.315/.374/.483)
  • SP Josh Stinson: 7.0 IP, 1 ER, 5 H, 2 BB, 4 K, 0 HR (4-1, 2.66 ERA, 61.0 IP, 44 H, 24 BB, 38 K, 3 HR); quietly posting a solid season as a swing man

Hi-A - St. Lucie (31-31)

  • SS Jordany Valdespin: 0-4, K (.292/.324/.481); 3 for his last 16
  • 2B Wilfredo Tovar: 1-3, R, BB, K (.276/.308/.356)
  • 1B Stefan Welch: 3-4, 2 R, 2B (.308/.360/.477)
  • SP Robert Carson: 6.0 IP, 0 ER, 2 H, 1 BB, 7 K, 0 HR (5-4, 4.57 ERA, 61.0 IP, 72 H, 27 BB, 50 K, 4 HR);a great outing for Carson, on the heels of a solid outing last week

Lo-A Savannah (41-26)

  • SS Wilmer Flores: 0-5, K (.281/.346/.442); how do you go from looking so dominant to looking so lost?
  • CF Juan Lagares: 1-4, 2 R, K (.299/.317/.464)
  • DH Nick Santomauro: 0-4, R (.150/.189/.180); I love seeing OBAs that are higher than SLGs, especially when the OBA is just .189
  • 3B Jefrey Marte: 0-4, R, BB, 2 K (.244/.326/.361)
  • RF Cesar Puello: 2-4, 3 R, RBI, BB, SB (.250/.336/.306); maybe somebody’s finally coming around
  • 2B Alonzo Harris: 0-3 (.240/.275/.376)
  • SP Mark Cohoon: 9.0 IP, 0 ER, 4 H, 2 BB, 7 K, 0 HR (7-1, 1.30 ERA, 90.1 IP, 68 H, 17 BB, 75 K, 2 HR); that’s three straight shutouts, people

Star of the Night

I really want to give this to Pedro Zapata, or Josh Satin, or Robert Carson, or somebody different. But throwing three straight complete game shutouts is pretty special, so I have to go with Mark Cohoon. Cohoon has tied the Sally record by throwing three straight shutouts, and his scoreless streak is now up to 33 1/3 innings. After winning back-to-back SAL Pitcher of the Week Awards, Cohoon has given himself a chance to win a third. His ERA is down to 1.30. Between Cohoon, Jim Fuller, and Brandon Moore, Savannah has quite a rotation, and all three deserve a promotion.

Our Goat is Wilmer Flores. It was a great day for the Mets organization as a whole, as the three affiliates won by a combined score of 29-2. But you’re never completely satisfied when one of your top prospects pulls an oh-fer, especially when that prospect has been slumping badly for the better part of two months. Wilmer’s gone from looking like an easy promotion to looking simply overmatched in the SAL.

System Roundup

  • Buffalo had the day off.
  • The B-Mets banged out 18 hits en route to an 11-2 victory over Richmond. Every B-Met had a hit; in fact, every B-Met except Eric Campbell and Josh Stinson had two, and newcomers Sean Ratliff and Josh Satin led the team with three hits apiece. Stinson pitched seven strong innings.
  • Robert Carson, Rhiner Cruz, and Stephen Clyne held Bradenton scoreless as St. Lucie won, 6-0. St. Lucie managed just seven hits despite the six runs, however, three of them by Stefan Welch and three more by catcher Juan Torres.
  • Keeping up the theme of lopsided wins, Savannah beat Rome, 12-0.Mark Cohoon was great once again, throwing a shutout. Pedro Zapata went 5-for-5 with four RBI, second baseman Mike Fisher and catcher Dock Doyle added three more RBI apiece.
