Mets Daily Farm System Report - 7/27: See Ya Hess

New York Mets Daily Farm System Report - Results from the afternoon/night of Monday July 26, 2010

First, let's start off with some good news:  Jenrry Mejia is reportedly back throwing simulated games at the Mets ST complex in PSL.  And with Barajas hitting the DL, finally Big Hess will get his shot with the big club.

The Usual Suspects

AAA - Buffalo (51-51)

  • CF Jesus Feliciano: 0-4 (.347/.394/.439)
  • 1B Mike Hessman: 0-4, K (.274/.358/.583) See ya in Queens
  • RF Fernando Martinez: 0-4, K (.240/.303/.446)
  • SS Ruben Tejada: 1-2, CS(3), E(8) (.292/.347/.363)
  • LF Lucas Duda: 3-3, 2 2B. RBI, BB (.308/.365/.659) Two of the three hits off of a lefty
  • SP Pat Misch: 7 IP, 1 ER, 6 H, 0 BB, 8 K, HB (9-4, 3.44, 131 IP, 135 H, 23 BB, 81 K, 11 HR)
  • REHAB ALERT - RHP Ryota Igarashi: 1 IP, 2 ER (2 unearned), 3 H, 0 BB, 3 K, WP (0-1, 5.19, 8.2 IP, 12 H, 2 BB, 8 K, 2 HR)  He's been too hittable considering he's not even facing major leaguers

AA - Binghamton (52-51)

  • CF Kirk Nieuwenhuis: 1-3, BB, K (.296/.343/.528)
  • LF Sean Ratliff: 1-4, 2B, K (.338/.369/.605)

  • RP Eddie Kunz: 3.2 IP, 0 ER, 1 H, 2 BB, 0 K (4-4, 5.12, 84.1 IP, 79 H, 53 BB, 43 K, 4 HR)
  • I must say, Binghamton certainly paces this organization in terms of their promotions as they will be holding 'A Tribute to Will Ferrell' tonight where fans can relive some of Ferrell's very best moments on the stadium's big board. Genius.

  • Off Day


Lo-A Savannah (55-46)

  • 3B Jefry Marte: DNP (.264/.333/.401)

  • In more important news, # 13 seed C Dock Doyle pulled the first round upset in the 'Minors Moniker Madness' tourney over #4 seed Chorye Spoone.  However, he'll need every last vote to top Brett Butts this round so vote some more!

  • 3B Aderlin Rodriguez: 1-5, RBI, 2 K (.306/.356/.582)
  • RF Javier Rodriguez: 3-5, 2B, R (.318/.345/.500) After a brief lull J-Rod is 5 for his last 9 with hits in six straight
  • CF Chase Greene: 3-5, 2B, HR(1), RBI, 2 R (.333/.366/.487) First pro homer for the speedy Greene; batting .429 over his last five games
  • SP Jacob DeGrom: 4 IP, 4 ER, 8 H, 1 BB (intentional), 4 K (1-1, 5.19, 26 IP, 35 H, 6 BB, 22 K, 2 HR) Scuffling lately


RK GCL Mets (13-16)


Star of the Night

If you're not going to be the Star after you hit your first pro homer then when will you be?  Fortunately for Kingsport CF Chase Greene he won't have to find out as he gets the nod today off a very strong 3-for-5 night which included a double and his first professional home run.  The power outburst was a welcome sign from the athletic yet diminutive outfielder who profiles more like a Brett Gardner-type, with gap power but a more speed-oriented offensive game.  The 2009 16th round selection out of a Boca Raton HS also played short before the draft and could almost certainly shift to second base if he doesn't have what it takes to play a major league caliber center field due to a very weak throwing arm.

Let's stay in Kingsport and tap another of their ultra fast outfielders for Goat of the Night honors, LF ZeErika Mcqueen off his 0-for-5 with three K's performance.  But remember, that doesn't make his name any less cool so after an easy first round win over Mike Piazza, keep voting for him!

System Roundup

  • More of the same for Buffalo as they were held down by a strong pitching performance in this 5-1 defeat to Toledo, their seventh straight loss.  LHP Pat Misch deserved better as he was very strong over seven but unfortunately he matched up with another lefty who was dealing for the Mudhens and in the end it was Buffalo that blinked first.  RHP Ryota Igarashi was looking fine in the eighth until a wild pitch third strike allowed a baserunner.  Then an error on a missed catch compounded things and at that point the inning unraveled and the 'Hens scored four more to put this one out of reach and end the Bisons' long journey back to .500.  Boxscore
  • The B-Mets lost their series opener with the Sea Dogs, 8-4.  The Binghamton bats were eh last night aside from a couple bombs from IF Jose Coronado & RF Raul Reyes.  A 2-for-15 from their 1-4 spots certainly didn't help, but it was the pitching that eventually doomed them.  Namely LHP Robert Carson who is still clearly adjusting to this level of play.  Basically I'm just looking for him to spend the rest of this year getting acclimated to Double-A, regardless of results.  Boxscore
  • For the second straight night Savannah topped the Legends by the score of 3-0.  Though LHP Darin Gorski was solid, I'd say the Gnats were pretty fortunate to take this one so easily considering they managed just five hits and made three errors.  However, five walks compared to seven strikeouts from the notoriously free-swinging Gnats lineup certainly helped.  Boxscore
  • The Cyclones managed a split of their four-gamer with the Yankees with a nice 3-1 win last night.  Like the Sand Gnats, the 'Clones were somewhat lucky as they compiled three runs on just four combined hits and were actually outhit by the Yankee lineup.  Fortunately lefty starter Angel Cuan and dominant reliever RHP Ryan Fraser combined to limit the SI hitters to a nice 0-for-7 with RISP.  Fraser has been masterful since beginning his pro career, allowing just a single run over 17 innings.  Boxscore
  • Princeton jumped ahead early in this one but Kingsport's slow & steady scoring attack throughout the middle innings eventually delivered them the 6-4 victory.  Give a ton of credit to the K-Met bullpen who short-circuited the Rays bats with five no-hit innings to end this one.  And after starting the season in XST with an injury, CF Chase Greene looks like he's starting to get into the swing of things with a nice 3-hit night, including a double and his first bomb.  Boxscore
  • Despite outhitting the Marlins (who featured Cameron Maybin), the GCL Mets dropped yesterday's game 5-4.  Aside from a three-run fifth inning, the lineup didn't really do much else and that would prove too little as Mets starter RHP Marcos Camarena was not on his game today.  Boxscore
