Triple-A: Syracuse Mets (5-14)


Jerad Eickhoff had himself a little league game, tossing six scoreless innings and hitting a home run (!!!) in a 5-2 win. In more important news for the major league team, Seth Lugo got in another healthy rehab appearance, and while he allowed two runs and made an error, he also struck out two and was able to sit-down and go back out for a second inning. He’ll hopefully be back on the major league side soon.

ROSTER ALERT: C Dan Rizzie assigned to Syracuse Mets from Binghamton Rumble Ponies.

ROSTER ALERT: RF LT Struble assigned to Syracuse Mets from Brooklyn Cyclones.

Double-A: Binghamton Rumble Ponies (2-16)


Binghamton tried. They really, really tried. But their early season struggles continued, as the Rumble Ponies came up just sort in an 8-7 loss. Down six in the ninth, Binghamton scored five runs in the last frame thanks to a two-run double from Carlos Cortes and Jake Mangum’s first Double-A home run, a three-run shot. Both those big hits came with two outs and it seemed the Rumble Ponies were on the brink of climbing out a hole dug by Tony Dibrell and Ryley Gilliam. Instead, Jeremy Vazauez was called out on strikes to end the game.

High-A: Brooklyn Cyclones (7-11)


Francisco Alvarez’s Brooklyn debut didn’t go so well, with the Cyclones getting blown out by the IronBirds. Alvarez had a single - one of eight hits for the Cyclones - and managed to avoid any defensive miscues after making four errors in Low-A. The quiet offensive performance couldn’t make up for a ghastly start by Oscar Rojas, who gave up six runs in only three innings of work.

Low-A: St. Lucie Mets (13-6)


The result in this one - a 14-9 loss - was almost irrelevant, because Noah Syndergaard departed after just one inning due to right elbow soreness. Supposedly, the move was only precautionary, but so were about 10 of the other Met injuries before they became serious. The pitching behind Thor was, to put it lightly, horrible, with Junior Santos and Brendan Hardy giving up five runs apiece and a Jose Peroza leading to three unearned runs in between them. Jaylen Palmer was perhaps the lone bright spot, having a solid day in what has been a rough start to the season with a pair of singles and a walk.

ROSTER ALERT: St. Lucie Mets placed C Matt Dyer on the 7-day injured list retroactive to May 24, 2021.

ROSTER ALERT: 3B Nic Gaddis assigned to St. Lucie Mets from GCL Mets.
