New York Mets Daily Farm System Report - Results from the night of Friday, June 25 2010

The Usual Suspects

AAA - Buffalo (38-37)

AA - Binghamton (37-36)

  • CF Sean Ratliff: 1-4, R (.279/.295/.535)
  • 1B Nick Evans: 1-4, R, CS(1) (.280/.352/.498)
  • 2B Josh Satin: 1-4, K (.333/.349/.500)
  • Mike Nickeas: 3-4, 2B, HR(1), 2 RBI, R (.308/.421/.391) Slugging 1.005 in his last ten games; he's so hot right now
  • LF Brahiam Maldonado: 1-4, HR(4) (.260/.324/.469) Second straight game with a homer
  • SP Michael Antonini: 5.1 IP, 1 ER, 5 H, 3 BB, 2 K, HBP (5-5, 4.07, 40.2 IP, 27 H, 30 BB, 30 K, 2 HR)
  • RP Eddie Kunz: 1.1 IP, 1 ER, 1 H, 3 BB, 0 K, HBP (5.40/ ) Just one run with that line was pretty lucky; Kunz has allowed at least one earned run in seven of his last nine appearances
  • RP Manny Alvarez: 1 IP, 0 ER, 0 H, 0 BB, 1 K (3-0, 3.10 ERA, 19.1 IP, 17 H, 3 BB, 27 K, 0 HR) 1.42 ERA in his last ten games

Hi-A - St. Lucie (33-37)

  • SS Wilmer Flores: 0-3, BB, 3 E(3)(.122/.225/.122) Two consecutive errors in the second led to a four run inning, rough going so far in PSL
  • 2B Jordany Valdespin: 1-5, R, SB(7) (.298/.331/.461)
  • 1B Stefan Welch: 1-3, 2B, R (.306/.369/.462)

  • CF Juan Lagares: 2-4, 2B, RBI, R (.333/.333/.444)
  • SP Eric Beaulac: 5.2 IP, 2 ER (5 unearned), 8 H, 2 BB, 7 K (3-2, 3.59, 57.2 IP, 54 H, 31 BB, 36 K, 1 HR) He hasn't been great but he also hasn't been bad and a 1.59 GB:FB with only 1 HR allowed is nothing to sneeze at
  • REHAB ALERT: Carlos Beltran DH'd tonight and went 2-for-3 with an opposite field double and a walk

Lo-A Savannah (43-29)

  • 3B Jefry Marte: 1-5, 2B, 2 RBI, R, K, E(20) (.248/.327/.361)
  • RF Cesar Puello: 3-4, 2 2B, 2 RBI, 2 R, BB (.254/.343/.315) Picked up right where he left off before the break, batting .353 in his last ten games
  • 2B Alonzo Harris: 0-4, E(17) (.235/.270/.362) His cold streak continues
  • CF RJ Harris: 2-5, RBI, R, 2 K (.250/.333/.250) Newly promoted '09 14th rounder is definitely worth keeping an eye on thanks to some emerging raw tools 
  • CF Pedro Zapata: 2-5, RBI, R, K (.292/.358/.383)
  • LF Nick Santomauro: 2-5, 2 2B, 2 R, K (.161/.202/.205) 
  • SS Wilfredo Tovar: 1-3, R, BB (.200/.429/.200)
  • SP Jim Fuller: 6 IP, 0 ER, 6 H, 1 BB, 4 K (7-2, 1.81, 89.1 IP, 72 H, 25 BB, 83 K, 1 HR) He's got to be feeling at least a little frosted as his two running mates (Cohoon & Moore) were promoted while he sits in Savannah with a 1.94 ERA, good for fifth-best in the league


SS-A Brooklyn (5-3)

  • CF Darrell Ceciliani: 3-4, 3B, R, SB(2), CS(1) (.375/.321/.464) He's emerging as the best talent on this team
  • RF Cory Vaughn: 0-3, BB (.214/.387/.440)
  • 1B Jeff Flagg: 2-4, RBI, K (.303/.300/.448)
  • SP Angel Cuan: 5 IP, 1 ER, 3 H, 3 BB, 4 K, HBP (2-0, 1.50, 12.0 IP, 9 H, 2 BB, 7 K, 0 HR) Nice rate of 8 ground outs to only 2 fly outs

RK Kingsport (2-2)

  • CF ZeErika McQueen: 4-5, RBI, R, 2 BB, 2 SB(2) (.450/.500/.500) 
  • 3B Aderlin Rodriguez: 2-4, HR(3), RBI, 2 R, 2 BB (.353/.421/.941) Heck of a night hitting his third HR in only their fourth game and you gotta love those two walks; slugging .941
  • 1B Eddie Lora: 0-4, R, 2 BB, 3 K; The non-Animal return for Billy Wagner
  • RF Javier Rodriguez: 1-2, RBI, 3 R, SB(1), CS(1) (.267/.368/.400)
  • SP Brett Mitchell: 5 IP, 1 ER, 4 H, 1 BB, 8 K; Nice debut for the 2010 12th rounder
  • RP Jeff Walters: 2 IP, 3 ER, 5 H, 1 BB, 3 K, 1 HR; Not so much for the 2010 7th rounder who is already working out of the 'pen so the Mets long-term plans for him seem pretty clear: Bobby Parnell Part II

RK GCL Mets (3-1)

  • DH Robbie Shields: 1-4, 2B, R (.100/.250/.200) The '09 3rd rounder is here recovering from TJ surgery, which is why we haven't seen him at short yet; who knows how long they'll keep him here
  • RF Gilbert Gomez: 1-5, 2B, R, K (.235/.235/.353)
  • 3b Marinus Vernooij: 1-1, RBI, R, BB (.167/.286/.167) The somewhat touted '07 IFA has found pro baseball in North America quite a bit tougher than the Dutch League, where as an 18 yr-old he led his team (the Door Tridents, since I'm sure everyone was wondering) in RBI's on their way to a title 
  • SP Zack Dotson: 3.1 IP, 2 ER, 5 H, 4 BB, 3 K; '09 13th rounder made his pro debut Friday afternoon; for what it's worth, Mets amateur scouting guru Rudy Terrassas claims that the big lefty from Georgia throws the liveliest fastball he's seen in 27 years
  • REHAB ALERT:  CF Jason Pridie finally got back on the field yesterday, going 2-for-4 with a double, two runs and a strikeout; he played 7 innings in center, though he only had a couple of singles hit his way.  The good news is that he played well, the bad news is that his opportunity has probably vanished with GMJ gone and Jesus Feliciano producing in his place.  Also making a rehab appearance was RHP Carlos Muniz who was the winning pitcher in this one, going two innings and allowing three hits and striking out two (teenage) batters.

Star of the Night

It's gonna be Bingo's own C Mike Nickeas today off his 3-for-4 night with a double, two RBI's and his first bomb of 2010.  This guy is on fire right now as he's hit in nine straight games and he's got his average well over .300 with an .800+ OPS.  Not only that but he's compiled 24 walks versus only 20 strikeouts; who does he think he is, Josh Thole?

Goat of the Night is easy, Brooklyn Closer RHP Johan Figuereo who blew their game by allowing three runs in the bottom of the ninth.


System Roundup

  • Another tough one for the Herd as they lost to the Charlotte Knights 5-2.  It's getting harder and harder for the Bisons to score on a consistent basis and aside from an early first inning run and a Russ Adams solo shot, the bats were quiet tonight.  RHP Tobi Stoner continued the trend of blah Bisons starting pitching and his mediocre start coupled with some shoddy D, Buffalo was never really in this one. Boxscore
  • After falling behind early, the B-Mets rallied late to take this one versus the Rock Cats 5-3.  The pitching was solid in this one, especially the lockdown relief work of the surging RHP Manny Alvarez, LHP Derrick Ellison & RHP Emary Frederick. Credit also goes to the suddenly red-hot C Mike Nickeas who was 2-for-3 with a double and a bomb.  Watch out today for the Double-A debut of the man, the myth, the legend: LHP Mark CohoonBoxscore
  • RHP Eric Beaulac wasn't sharp last night but he wasn't to blame for the Mets 10-5 loss to the Cards.  Four errors, including three from Wilmer in his second game in PSL, led to five unearned runs in this one.  The offense wasn't bad led by Deutschland's own C Kai Gronauer and some guy named Beltran.  Watch today for the St. Lucie debut of SAL first half strikeout king RHP Brandon MooreBoxscore
  • Who said the Sand Gnats can't score?  They won last night 9-0 against the Tourists in an all around excellent game.  Most of the scoring came in two innings as they scored 5 runs in the third and 3 runs in the fifth.  Gotta love the symmetry.  Eight of the nine Gnats batters had hits and you know things were going well because even DH Nick Santomauro got in on the fun with two hits; hopefully this will jump start his season as I do still think the Dartmouth product has talent.  The pitching was equally impressive as LHP Jim Fuller began his campaign to get promoted by lowering his ERA to 1.81 over six very strong innings while the bullpen didn't allow a hit over the final three.  Boxscore
  • Brooklyn lost this one to the HV Renegades 4-3 last night.  All around it wasn't a bad game by the Cyclones until the bottom of the ninth when Brooklyn closer RHP Johan Figuereo, who came in with a two run lead, could only get one out and allowed four runs including a walk-off double.  Starter LHP Angel Cuan was solid while CF Darrell Ceciliani and 1B Jeff Flagg continued to excel at the dish.  Boxscore 
  • The GCL Mets won yesterday afternoon 7-5 over the GCL Astros.  Starter LHP Zack Dotson wasn't great in his pro debut but the offense managed to keep them atop with a very balanced approach:  Eight of the eleven Mets who came to bat got at least one hit and the team as a whole scored in five of their eight innings.  They were also boosted by a couple of nice performances by rehabbing Quad-A players in CF Jason Pridie and RHP Carlos Muniz.  Oh and it didn't hurt that the Astros made six errors; ah, short season baseball. Boxscore
  • Kingsport brought their hitting shoes last night in their 15-6 win over Elizabethton.  Great pro debut by the Mets 2010 12th rounder out of Minnesota State-Mankato RHP Bret Mitchell as well as some very nice performances on the offensive side by CF ZeErika Mcqueen, 3B Aderlin Rodriguez & 2B Ray Van Gurp.  All in all a nice win despite the fact that both teams made four errors.  Boxscore
