Mets Daily Prospect Report, 5/8/18: Carpio plays hero

Catch up on all the Mets prospects in yesterday's minor league action!

Luis Carpio - Gordon Donovan - 2015

*All results from games played on May 7, 2018

Triple-A: Las Vegas 51s (12-20)


A seven run sixth propelled the 51s to a 10-8 victory over Salt Lake. Drew Gagnon had a very PCL start, allowing six runs in four innings, but the bullpen fared much better. Gerson Bautista had the only notable struggles, walking three in 1.2 innings of work and allowing a run. Newly signed Cody Asche played a big role, recording three RBI, as did Luis Guillorme, who had a triple and a home run. Of note, Guillorme now has a higher OPS and a nearly equivalent ISO to Dominic Smith, which isn’t a very good sign for the first baseman’s stock.

Double-A: Binghamton Rumble Ponies (14-13)


Binghamton hung on for a 2-1 win over Hartford thanks to a two-run home run from Jhoan Urena. Nabil Cirsmatt had an excellent start, allowing only one run over 6.1 innings and earning his third win. Peter Alonso continued to rake, reaching base in all four plate appearances, though reports on his defense remain....not great. Meanwhile, Tyler McNeil registered two mammoth foul balls despite an unremarkable stat line, and Tyler Bashlor looked great in a one inning save, striking out two.

Advanced-A: St. Lucie Mets (12-16)


Luis Carpio’s go-ahead, two-run bomb in the bottom of the eighth was the difference, as the Mets rallied late to top Florida. Josh Prevost made a solid start, allowing two runs over 6.1 innings, but the St. Lucie offense was quiet for most of the game. Michael Paez had an RBI single in the fourth, but Prevost was left in an inning to long and gave up the go ahead run in the top of the seventh. Matt Pobereyko kept things tied and Matt Blackham locked down the save after Carpio’s home run.

Low-A: Columbia Fireflies (17-14)


David Peterson’s brilliant start was wasted by an anemic offense (training to be a Met already!), and the Fireflies lost in extras. Peterson struck out eight over seven innings, and Carlos Hernandez followed with two scoreless, but Stephen Villines was beat up for five runs in the top of the tenth. Villines’ continues to put up insane peripherals, but has been victimized by a BABIP over .400. The Columbia offense was obviously anemic, as Rigoberto Terrazas registered the only RBI in the bottom of the tenth.
