BINGHAMTON,NY – The Eastern League has named Binghamton Mets starter Mark Cohoon as the Pitcher of the Week for the period of August 6th - 12th. Cohoon is the fourth B-Met to receive weekly honors from the league, joining the ranks of Greg Peavey, Josh Rodriguez and Matt Den Dekker.

Cohoon gained recognition for tossing a complete game shutout against the Harrisburg Senators on August 10. The southpaw took a no-hitter into the seventh inningand struck out a season-high ten Senators to lead the B-Mets to a 5-0 victory.The southpaw surrendered just two hits and never allowed a runner to reach third in his fifth career complete game shutout.

Selectedby the Mets in the 12th round of the 2008 draft out of North Central Texas College, Cohoon is in his third season with the Binghamton Mets. Since returning from a two-start stint with the Buffalo Bisons (AAA) in late June, Cohoon has gone 4-1 and compiled a 2.44 ERA.

Cohoon and the B-Mets (59-62) enjoy an off day Monday before starting a three-game series against the New Hampshire Fisher Cats in Manchester on Tuesday night at 7:05 PM. RHP Gonzalez Germen starts for Binghamton against RHP Brandon Morrow. The Horizons Federal Credit Union pre-game show begins at 6:50 PM on Newsradio 1290WNBF.

Can he be a SP#5 at this point or is he still just a AAAA type of guy?

Mack Ade said...

Brian, he probably could be for somebody, but there is no room for him on the Mets.

The 2013 SP5 looks to once again be Gee.

2014 looks to be Wheeler, Harvey, Niese.. and two between Dickey (?), Montero, Pill, Mazzoni,and Gee

He enters the Rule 5 at the end of this season and I can't see the Mets protecting him. This is what guys like him play for... a chance for a new start with a team that will protect them.
