Triple-A: Syracuse Mets (11-25)


As will be a recurring theme in today’s report, the Syracuse Mets found themselves down big, early. Jesus Reyes lasted just two innings, allowing eight earned runs. His replacement, Marcel Renteria, lasted a little longer, twirling three innings, but he had a slog if it himself, allowing three earned runs. Down 10-0, Syracuse finally got on the board in the bottom of the third and were able to chip away a few runs, but ultimately they only made it a closer game rather than a complete blowout.

Double-A: Binghamton Rumble Ponies (11-24)


It wasn’t good. Luc Rennie wasn’t good. The bullpen wasn’t good. The offense wasn’t good. It just wasn’t good. It wasn’t good.

High-A: Brooklyn Cyclones (10-22)


Zach Ashford singled in the second and at least the Cyclones got that out of the way early, removing the possibility of a no-hitter. Juan Uriarte added a single of his own in the sixth, but that would actually be it on the afternoon. Brett Baty and Francisco Alvarez both drew walks, and Baty was also hit by a pitch, but those five base runners would be all the Cyclones would be able to muster. Hayden Wesneski might as well spell his name weSneski after this one. The worst part is, they wasted a strong start by Jose Butto. The right-hander had his changeup working and threw five scoreless innings, allowing 3 hits and walking 2 while striking out 7.

The Brooklyn big three had one hell of a party at the Jersey Shore at the beginning of the month, but they are suffering from some pretty painful hangovers. After going 7-27 with a double, triple, and two homers that week, bringing his season total to .262/.290/.515, Ronny Mauricio went 0-14 with three walks this week, bringing his season total to .225/.268/.442. After going 11-21 with two doubles, four home runs, and five walks that week, bringing his season total to .369/.476/.595, Brett Baty went 2-18 with a double, a home run, and a walk, bringing his season total to .324/.431/.549. After going 7-22 with two doubles, two homers, and four walks, bringing his season total in Brooklyn to .265/.350/.500, Francisco Alvarez went 1-12 with two walks, bringing his Brooklyn season total to .240/.339/.480.

ROSTER ALERT: New York Mets sent 2B Jeff McNeil on a rehab assignment to Brooklyn Cyclones.

Low-A: St. Lucie Mets (20-16)


Austin Faith, who was signed last season as an undrafted free agent like so many other young men thanks to the new, unfair-to-the-player draft rules put in place last season, looked solid over the course of his first month or so as a professional. A little older than the competition, he posted a 3.26 ERA in 19.1 innings split over 8 games, allowing 16 hits, walking 7, and striking out 24. Last Thursday, he got absolutely got hammered by Palm Beach, allowing 7 runs (6 earned) while not recording a single out. Facing those same Palm Beach hitters yesterday afternoon, Faith got destroyed for a second consecutive outing, allowing 6 earned runs in the second. At least he completed an inning this time?

Franklin Parra allowed a few runs in relief- although only one was earned- as did flamethrower Sammy Taveras, who averaged 96 on his fastball and topped out at 98. Brailin Gonzalez and Dellin Betances were the only St. Lucie pitchers to throw clean innings. Speaking of Betances, he looked solid in his first rehab appearance. He threw 21 total pitches, 11 fastballs, 6 curves and 4 sliders. The fastball sat 92-94 and was untouchable for the Palm Beach hitters. Same thing with the curve. The only ball put in play, a slider, resulted in a line drive double into center that, ultimately, resulted in nothing as the right-hander as neither of the next two batters were able to hit anything out of the infield.

ROSTER ALERT: St. Lucie Mets placed SS Shervyen Newton on the 7-day injured list.

ROSTER ALERT: New York Mets sent RHP Dellin Betances on a rehab assignment to St. Lucie Mets.

ROSTER ALERT: 2B Nick Conti assigned to St. Lucie Mets from GCL Mets.

ROSTER ALERT: RHP Jace Beck assigned to St. Lucie Mets from GCL Mets.
