New York Mets Daily Farm System Report - 5/29

*All results from games played on Saturday, May 28th 2011

AAA - Buffalo Bisons (21-28)_______________________________________

Game 1: GWINNETT 6, BUFFALO 1 (Box)

Game 2: GWINNETT 1, BUFFALO 3 (Box)

  • CF Kirk Nieuwenhuis: DNP
  • LF Lucas Duda: DNP
  • 2B Chin-Lung Hu: 1-3, 2B, 2 K, E(1)
  • RHP Josh Stinson: W, 6 IP, 0 ER (1 unearned), 5 H, 2 BB, 4 K
  • ROSTER NOTE - After his pleasantly surprising eight-start run with the Herd, RHP Chris Schwinden is tentatively slated to make his major league debut this Tuesday in the place of the injured R.A. Dickey. Dickey has still yet to be officially scratched but at the very least Schwinden has effectively put his name on the map with his extremely impressive 2.36 ERA in Triple-A. For a bit of background, the 24-year old Schwinden was a 22nd round draft pick in '08 who pitches in the mold of an '07 21st rounder, Dillon Gee. Schwinden too is a righty with a so-so fastball but good control who keeps hitters off balance with a mix of solid breaking stuff and good pitching IQ. Though he does not possess Gee's phenomenal change, Schwinden utilizes a very strong cutter as his best pitch and as a result has better luck limiting the longball.
  • AA - Binghamton Mets (14-31)_____________________________________


    • 2B Reese Havens: 1-5, 2 K
    • SS Jordany Valdespin: 1-4, RBI, K; First game back in the starting lineup after missing about a week with hamstring tightness
    • LF Eric Campbell: DNP
    • 3B Josh Satin: 1-4, HR(5), 3 RBI, R, K; 7-game hit streak
    • 1B Allan Dykstra: 0-3, R, BB, 2 K
    • RHP Tobi Stoner: L, 5 IP, 6 ER, 7 H, 2 BB, K, 2 HR, E(1); After a couple of rough outings with St. Lucie, Stoner starts things with Binghamton on the wrong foot in his 2011 Double-A debut

    Hi-A St. Lucie Mets (28-22)________________________________________

    DUNEDIN 9, ST. LUCIE 6 (Box)

    Lo-A Savannah Sand Gnats (25-23)__________________________________


    Star of the Night

    Today we're going to go with Savannah's RHP Ryan Fraser for his sterling 6+ IP, 0 earned relief effort for the Gnats. Fraser has transitioned into the rotation very nicely this season after starring as the Cyclones' closer in 2010. He's posted an impressive 2.83 ERA through ten appearances though while his troublesome walk rate has improved quite a bit this season ('11: 3.21 | '10: 5.74), his K-rate has regressed significantly as well as he has learned to tone down his high velocity stuff ('11: 4.53 | '10: 11.20).

    Goat of the Night
    The B-Mets came into the eighth down one, but that was before RHP Erik Turgeon gave up four runs -- including a 3-run bomb -- in his two innings of work, effectivelly putting this game to bed. Dishonorable mention for Savannah's Albert Cordero for his 0-for-3, 3 K's showing. Cordero has one measly XBH in May and just four all season combined.
