PORTLAND 5, BINGHAMTON 4 (Box)

If you're reading this report then you, like me, care a lot about the Mets' minor leaguers. As such, how we feel about our prospects tends to ebb and flow with the ups and downs of said prospects. We know this isn't rational but that doesn't stop us from overreacting at various points throughout the year after a random hot or cold streak. Baseball is a weird game. Players don't perform in a straight line. This makes it a constant struggle for us to get a grasp on a player's true talent level. And it's especially true in the minor leagues where players are continuously improving, unless they're not. All of this is a long-winded way of saying that I am bummed out about Brandon Nimmo. He's hitting just .279/.343/.380 in Binghamton and it's looking more and more likely that he's going to end up a fourth-outfielder-platoon type of player. His slash line in Double-A is similar to what he did in his stint last year, only with worse strikeout and walk numbers and less power as well. I'm sure he'll go on a hot streak starting today now that I've written this but I had to get it out.

  • SS Gavin Cecchini: 2-5
  • 2B L.J. Mazzilli: 1-4, BB, K
  • LF Michael Conforto: 0-5, 2 K; I pointed this out on twitter yesterday and it bares repeating here: PECOTA's 50th percentile rest-of-season projection on Conforto is .247/.313/.407. People have said that to call on Conforto and expect him to be the savior would be naive and rash. Well, we're not expecting him to be a savior but look at what he would be replacing. Mets left-fielders have combined to hit .214/.273/.333. I'm not looking for a savior, I'm looking for a non-blackhole. And there's upside in bringing up Conforto, too. His 60th percentile projection is .258/.325/.425, which is pretty damn good.
  • CF Brandon Nimmo: 1-4, 2B, 2 K
  • 3B Josh Rodriguez: 3-4, R, 2B, RBI
  • PH Aderlin Rodriguez: 0-1
  • RF Jared King: 1-4
