Brian Burgamy, Kyle Johnson, Cody Satterwhite, and Jon Velasquez will attempt to live up to Eric Campbell's heroic Eastern League All-Star Game performance from two years ago.

The Double-A Binghamton Mets will have four representatives at the 2014 Eastern League All-Star Game on July 16. Brian Burgamy, a 33-year-old switch-hitting infielder, has recorded 14 home runs and 51 RBI on the season. Kyle Johnson, the primary leadoff hitter and center fielder for the B-Mets, is hitting .288 with 34 RBI. Cody Satterwhite, a former second round pick of the Detroit Tigers in 2008, is having an outstanding season out of the bullpen, posting a 1.60 ERA with 42 strikeouts in 39.1 innings. The final selection, Jon Velasquez, has posted a 3.05 ERA in 38.1 innings out of the bullpen.

While none of these players are in our Top 25 Mets Prospects here at Amazin' Avenue, or even the consensus top 62 Mets prospects, it is still nice to see the B-Mets get some recognition. This year's crop of All-Stars have some big shoes to fill, as current Met Eric Campbell was the hero of the 2012 Eastern League All-Star Stop, hitting a walk-off single to end secure a 5-4 win for the Eastern Division. The game will be played at 7 p.m. on July 16 at Peoples Natural Gas Field in Altoona, Pennsylvania.
