Mets Daily Farm System Report - 7/1

New York Mets Daily Farm System Report - Results from the night of Wednesday June 30, 2010.

The Usual Suspects

AAA - Buffalo (41-39)

  • RF Fernando Martinez: 1-2, R, 2B (.259/.311/.415); didn’t start the game
  • RF Val Pascucci: 0-4, BB, 2 K (.231/.346/.565)
  • LF Lucas Duda: 1-3, R, HR, RBI, 2 BB (.308/.379/.654); almost a carbon copy of yesterday’s line—just one extra walk
  • 1B Mike Jacobs: 1-4, 2B, BB (.256/.304/.460)
  • SP Tobi Stoner: 5.0 IP, 3 ER, 7 H, 2 BB, 3 K, 1 HR (4-7, 5.28 ERA, 87.0 IP, 111 H, 26 BB, 62 K, 10 HR); decidedly so-so
  • RP Dylan Owen: 2.0 IP, 0 ER, 2 H, 0 BB, 3 K, 0 HR (3-4, 6.17 ERA, 42.1 IP, 53 H, 11 BB, 38 K, 5 HR); second relief outing was much better than his first

AA - Binghamton (41-37)

  • CF Kirk Nieuwenhuis: 1-4, R, HR, RBI, 2 K (.275/.317/.468); the home run is nice, but still a little rusty: 3-for-13 with six strikeouts since his return
  • LF Sean Ratliff: 2-4, R, 2B, K (.274/.303/.565)
  • 3B Nick Evans: 1-3, R, 2B, BB (.289/.359/.516)
  • 1B Josh Satin: 1-4, RBI, K (.305/.354/.441)
  • SP Mike Antonini: 7.0 IP, 3 R, 5 H, 1 BB, 7 K, 0 HR (5-6, 4.05 ERA, 93.1 IP, 85 H, 16 BB, 64 K, 11 HR); strong start was wasted
  • RP Roy Merritt: 0.1 IP, 0 ER, 2 H, 0 BB, 0 K, 0 HR (1-3, 4.27 ERA, 46.1 IP, 43 H, 14 BB, 36 K, 3 HR)

Hi-A - St. Lucie (37-38)

  • 2B Jordany Valdespin: 2-5, R, 3B, K, SB (.308/.341/.472)
  • SS Wilmer Flores: 2-5, RBI, K (.469/.485/.469); another multi-hit game but still all singles
  • 1B Stefan Welch: 0-3, BB, K (.298/.363/.446); power has fallen off some over the last month
  • LF Juan Lagares: 0-4 (.207/.250/.241); looking a little overmatched in the FSL
  • LF Joey August: 1-3, R, HR, RBI, BB, CS (.306/.368/.413); home run was just his second
  • RP Kyle Allen: 3.0 IP, 4 ER, 4 H, 2 BB, 2 K, 0 HR (5-5, 5.09 ERA, 76.0 IP, 74 H, 44 BB, 44 K, 4 HR); maybe the biggest disappointment in the system in my eyes
  • REHAB ALERT: CF Carlos Beltran: 2-4, RBI (.391/.441/.478); played the whole game in center
  • REHAB ALERT: SP Oliver Perez: 6.0 IP, 4 ER, 5 H, 1 BB, 7 K, 2 HR; for some reason, Ollie’s Norfolk Tides stock photo is very funny to me

Lo-A Savannah (44-33)

  • 3B Jefrey Marte: 0-4, 3 K (.235/.318/.340); whenever it looks like Marte might be making some progress, he goes into a tailspin and has to start back at the bottom
  • RF Cesar Puello: 2-3 (.255/.338/.311)
  • CF Pedro Zapata: DNP (.283/.347/.372)
  • SS Wilfredo Tovar: 0-3, BB (.333/.417/.333)
  • SP Armando Rodriguez: 7.0 IP, 1 ER, 4 H, 1 BB, 9 K, 0 HR (5-5, 2.79 ERA, 84.0 IP, 62 H, 30 BB, 74 K, 0 HR); best start in the organization yesterday




SS-A Brooklyn (9-4)

  • CF Darrell Ceciliani: 2-4, R, 3B, 2 RBI (.404/.415/.635); another sunshine-y day
  • RF Cory Vaughn: 2-4, R, 3B (.298/.393/.681); ditto
  • 1B Jeff Flagg: 1-3, R, HR, 2 RBI, K (.340/.382/.580)
  • SP Angel Cuan: 5.0 IP, 2 ER, 5 H, 1 BB, 4 K, 0 HR (1-0, 2.25 ERA, 16.0 IP, 13 H, 4 BB, 9 K, 0 HR)

RK Kingsport (2-6)

  • CF ZeErika McQueen: 1-5, 2B, 3 K (.317/.349/.390); striking out in almost a third of his plate appearances
  • 3B Aderlin Rodriguez: 0-4, 2 K (.229/.289/.543); after throwing down the gauntlet early, been pretty quiet
  • DH Nelfi Zapata: 1-3 (.231/.333/.269); Nelfi’s off to a slow start
  • RF Javier Rodriguez: 2-4, K (.357/.424/.464)
  • SP Brett Mitchell: 4.2 IP, 1 ER, 5 H, 1 BB, 6 K, 1 HR (1-1, 1.86 ERA, 9.2 IP, 9 H, 2 BB, 14 K, 1 HR); 2010 12th rounder has looked pretty good over his first two starts
  • RP Adam Kolarek: 2.1 IP, 0 ER, 0 H, 0 BB, 3 K, 0 HR (0-0, 6.75 ERA, 5.1 IP, 3 H, 2 BB, 7 K, 1 HR)

RK GCL Mets (6-2)

  • SS Randoll Santana: 2-4, 2 R, BB, K, SB (.276/.400/.276); stolen base was his fifth
  • DH Robbie Shields: 3-5, R, 2B, 2 RBI, K (.259/.310/.444); nice day for the 2009 third rounder
  • 3B Brian Harrison: 1-4, K (.333/.333/.500); interesting sleeper from the 2010 draft class
  • C Jeff Glenn: 2-3, R, BB, K (.286/.375/.286); 2009 9th rounder had a solid day
  • SP Edioglis Villasmil: 5.0 IP, 1 ER, 8 H, 1 BB, 2 K, 0 HR (0-1, 1.86 ERA, 9.2 IP, 13 H, 2 BB, 5 K, 1 HR); I never get tired of his name but beware the gaudy ERA as five of the seven runs he’s allowed have been unearned

Star of the Night

The farm on the whole didn’t have a great day on Wednesday but Buffalo center fielder Jorge Padilla did. Padilla, recently acquired from the Blue Jays for Clint Everts, went 3-for-4 with a pair of doubles and four RBI. Padilla, a Puerto Rican, is a former third-round pick of the Phillies, who is actually in his second stint with the Mets; he spent some time in Binghamton back in 2006. Padilla’s now 30 and in his fifth organization, so there’s little chance of him making an impact, but he does have some contact ability in his bat. His other skills are pretty marginal, making him just organizational fodder, and it is questionable what his role will be after Jesus Feliciano returns to Triple-A when Carlos Beltran is activated.

Jefry Marte’s the Goat for Wednesday. Like I said above, whenever he seems to start making progress, he slumps terribly, and he’s now three for his last 26. You can overlook one bad season, but once a prospect has a second, especially when repeating the level, you have to worry.

System Roundup

  • While Tobi Stoner wasn’t at his best, the Buffalo offense came out firing on Wednesday, scoring four runs over the first two innings, including one by Andy Green on a steal of home (it was not a straight steal, however). The Bisons won over the Sky Chiefs by a score of 9-4. Lucas Duda hit a home run for the second straight game, while Mike Cervenak and Jorge Padilla each contributed three hits. Dylan Owen, recently demoted to the bullpen, pitched very well over the final two innings. Boxscore
  • Binghamton lost to the Altoona Curve, 6-3. Mike Antonini was actually quite effective, only giving up three runs over seven innings while walking just one and striking out seven. But relievers Emary Frederick and Roy Merritt gave up three runs in the eighth inning to put the Curve on top for good. The offense didn’t have a great day, either, a home run by Kirk Nieuwenhuis and a couple doubles by Nick Evans and Sean Ratliff aside. Boxscore
  • Port St. Lucie was rehab city on Wednesday, with both Carlos Beltran and the unparalleled Oliver Perez appearing in the game. Beltran had two hits and an RBI, while Ollie pitched pretty serviceably, allowing four runs over five innings, but with just one walk and seven strikeouts. Despite their star power, St. Lucie lost to the laughably bad Jupiter Hammerheads, 8-3. Kyle Allen was terrible in relief of Perez, and the offense just couldn’t catch up, although Joey August chipped in a home run and Wilmer Flores had his fifth-straight multi-single game. Boxscore
  • There was a pitchers’ duel in Greenville Wednesday night, and Savannah wound up on the short end, losing 2-1. While Savannah did manage eight hits, they were all singles. Furthermore, Savannah batters struck out eleven times, walking only twice. Meanwhile, Armando Rodriguez pitched very well and is quietly having a solid season. The Sand Gnats kept him on the hook all evening before tying the game in the ninth, but Samuel Perez blew it in the second half of the inning. Boxscore
  • Brooklyn beat the Hudson Valley Renegades, 8-3. A four-run third inning, highlighted by a two-run triple by Darrell Ceciliani and a solo homer by Jeff Flagg, was all Brooklyn needed, but they tacked on four more runs for laughs. Luis Nieves had three hits, including his first home run, and Cory Vaughn added a single and a triple. Boxscore
  • Kingsport had eight hits but couldn’t string enough of them together to score a run, getting shut out by Greeneville, 2-0. Javier Rodriguez continued his hot hitting with two hits and Lucas Stewart had two of his own, but the rest of the team continues to struggle with the bat. Boxscore
  • The GCL Mets outslugged the GCL Astros, 10-4. While the Mets did knock 14 hits, they were also helped out by three errors. Multihit games came courtesy of Marinus Vernooij, Randoll Santana, and Robbie Shields. Boxscore
