*All results from games played on Monday, June 22nd, 2015

Triple-A - Las Vegas 51's (40-31)_______________________________________

NO GAME (SCHEDULE)

Double-A - Binghamton Mets (36-32)_____________________________________

BINGHAMTON 5, NEW HAMPSHIRE 2 (Box)

  • SS Gavin Cecchini: 0-4, R, BB; Has been ice cold ever since he missed a couple of games after tweaking something in a pre-game warmup a couple weeks ago.
  • 2B LJ Mazzilli: 1-4
  • LF Michael Conforto: 2-5, R, 2B, K; If you haven't already read Jeff's write up of Conforto I suggest you do that now. There's no one in the system who takes a more professional at-bat than Conforto and he should absolutely be next in line should either of the Mets' aging corner outfielders hit the DL.
  • CF Brandon Nimmo: 1-4, BB, K; Quickly becoming the forgotten man of the preseason top 5 prospects on account of injury and him no longer being the most interesting outfield bat in Binghamton. Nimmo's development could vital to the organization, particularly if Lagares ever has to bite the bullet and get that elbow repaired.
  • RHP Gabriel Ynoa: 6 IP, 4 H, 2 ER, 2 R, 2 BB, 0 K; You hear that? That's the sound of the last couple people hopping off the Ynoa bandwagon.

Advanced-A - St. Lucie Mets (34-34)_____________________________________

JUPITER 4, ST LUCIE 1 (Box)

The St. Lucie Mets faced off against a rehabbing Jose Fernandez and it went about as you would expect, with Hernandez striking out nine and allowing one run on four hits over seven innings. That's the bad news. The good news is that two of the four hits Hernandez allowed came off the bat of Dominic Smith, who is less than 20 years and one week old. I understand there are still underlying issues here, and I'm excited for Jeff to get a look at him next week, but I think his performance after the slow start is indicative of just how much talent he possesses.

Low-A - Savannah Sand Gnats (39-31)_________________________________

NO GAME (SCHEDULE)

SS-A - Brooklyn Cyclones (3-1)_______________________________________

BROOKLYN 14, STATEN ISLAND 0 (Box)

A rare offensive explosion in Brooklyn.

  • CF-RF Tucker Tharp: 4-4, 5 R, RBI, BB
  • 2B Vinny Siena: 2-4, 2 R, 2B, 2 RBI, BB, 2 K; I encourage you to click through to see Vinny's picture. Looks like a headshot someone would submit to audition for Goodfellas.
  • 1B Michael Katz: 1-3, 2 RBI, K
  • PR-CF Enmanuel Zabala: 0-1, RBI
  • RF Michael Bernal: 2-2, 2 R, HR, 4 RBI, BB
  • DH Zach Mathieu: 0-3, BB
  • LF Jeff Diehl: 1-4, R, RBI, 2 K
  • LF Oswald Caraballo: 1-1
  • SS Branden Kaupe: 0-4, R, BB, 2 K; Kaupe started out as a personal favorite of mine but we're now into the fourth year of his career and he's only just made it to Brooklyn. I suppose it's a path not all that different than if he were drafted as a junior out of college, so I guess we should view him with an open mind.
  • 3B William Fulmer: 1-4, 2 R, BB
  • RHP Matt Blackham: 7 IP, 3 H, 0 R, 0 ER, BB, 7 K; Pitching is typically the carrying tool of the Brooklyn Cyclones and if they're going to have success this year it will likely have to be because a few arms developed. Blackham, Michael Gibbons, and Tyler Badamo have all been solid in their respective starts for Brooklyn.
Rookie - GCL Mets (0-1)__________________________

GCL MARLINS 2, GCL METS 1 (Box)

The Gulf Coast League Mets sprung into action yesterday with a bunch of players whose names are only vaguely familiar to even the most ardent prospect follower. The six-figure international free agent guys are easy to identify but there seem to be a lot of sub-six-figure dudes included on the roster as well. As for the game they played, the GCL Mets took a perfect game into the eighth but then Luis Carreno allowed two runs which was more than enough to lose, as our hitters were overwhelmed to the tune of 16 strikeouts.

Star of the Night

Tucker Tharp

Goat of the Night

Can't go with one of the St. Lucie boys because they were facing a stud major leaguer on rehab assignment so I have to turn to the GCL, our regular whipping boys for this space, and give the horns to Luis Carreno.
