Triple-A - Las Vegas 51's (31-13)_______________________________________


Greg Peavey's first start in triple-A did not go as well as his last couple starts in double-A. He allowed six runs on eight hits and two walks in four innings. A couple of notable non-starts in this one, with Cesar Puello again riding the pine and Dan Muno sitting as well. Muno went to Fresno State so I'm sure he would like to play in front this crowd. There aren't enough at-bats to go around out in Vegas but at some point they need to start prioritizing the players who are still young and developing over some veterans who are just hanging on.

Double-A - Binghamton Mets (24-17)_____________________________________



The B-Mets played a double dip up in Portland Monday night and, aside from a rain delay, things went smoothly in game one. Hansel Robles and Matt Clark led the way, the former tossing six scoreless and the latter crushing a three-run homer in the fifth. We're closing in on Memorial day and Matt Reynolds is still getting on base at an exceptional rate. It's certainly been one of the nicer surprises of the season thus far.



Game two went less smoothly, thanks in no small part to the recently-added-to-the-roster Angel Cuan, who got rocked to the tune of 12 hits and eights runs in his four innings of work. He was relieved by the also-recently-added Hamilton Bennett, who tossed two scoreless innings in his 2014 season debut.

Advanced-A - St. Lucie Mets (25-19)________________________________________


Dilson Herrera drove in the game-tying and game-winning runs in the eighth and 11th innings respectively, recording his ninth multi-hit game in his last 10 to bring his average up to .323. Equally as impressive is the fact that the formerly strikeout prone youngster has struck out just three times in his last ten games, which spans 46 at-bats. But equally as unimpressive is the fact that he hasn't walked in any of his last ten games. Frankly, you can keep your walks as long as you're putting the ball in play with authority, although, it would be nice if he drew one every now and again. If he's not going to walk much then it's a good thing his strikeout rate has come down as far as it has this year.

Low-A - Savannah Sand Gnats (29-14)__________________________________


Kevin McGowan threw seven superb innings, allowing just two hits and no runs to lead Savannah to a six nothing win over Charleston. The outing lowered his ERA to 1.85, which is greater than his peripheral stats would have you think, until you notice he hasn't allowed a home run all season. I mean, this guy's xFIP must be through the roof, am I right? Anyway, LJ Mazzilli led the way offensively with a single, two walks, and a home run, which is especially nice because he came into the night hitting a measly .245/.322/.329. Also, there's this:

Star of the Night

Any time someone goes yard in Grayson it's worth of SotN. When you do that, and you get on base in all of your at-bats, you're a lock. So, congrats to LJ Mazzilli. Honorable mention to Steven Matz, who doesn't appear to be long for Florida State League.

Goat of the Night

Not quite sure what they were working on with Angel Cuan down in extended spring, but it definitely appears to be a work in progress.
