Andrew Brown, Jim Callis, Michael Fulmer, Randy Fontanez, Mets OF


Jim Callis‏ - @jimcallisBA -

Very thin before trade. @wexlerrules: I'm surprised @jimcallisBA ranks the Mets system so poorly post-Dickey trade

                 All at lowest levels, though. @mania715: lotta pitching depth pre-trade

I do like him. Also recognize it's a long way from low A to majors for a pitcher. @thatkicker: are you a Michael Fulmer believer?

RP Randy Fontanez - Indios de Mayaguez – PRWL Playoffs – 0.1-IP, 0-H, 1-SV, 0.00

Dirty got an exclusive scouting report from ‘Purple Row’ a prominent Colorado blogger about OF Andrew Brown:

“At 28, Brown looks like a prototypical AAAA player. Although he showed flashes of power at the big league level last season, slugging .429 while hitting five home runs in limited time with the Rockies, Brown doesn’t appear to have the patience or pitch recognition skills necessary to consistently produce at the highest level. In addition, Brown provides little to no defensive value. Brown has spent the last two years tearing up the Pacific Coast League, and that won’t change in 2013 if he ends up in Triple-A with the Mets moving to Las Vegas. The Mets and their fans should take extreme caution if Brown gets off to a torrid start, as things likely wouldn’t translate well from Las Vegas to Citi Field in Queens.”
Great. Sounds like a ‘mile high’  Val Pascucci. I guess this is what you get when you bottom fish and, right now, the more bodies the better. Let’s see, where do we stand for camp:  Righties:  Brown and Collin Cowgill. Lefties: Kirk Nieuwenhuis, Jordany Valdespin, Mike Baxter, Lucas Duda. Also on the 40-man are Cesar Puello and Juan Lagares who are not ready.

                Right now, my guess is:
                                RF           -              Lucas Duda
                                CF           -              Kirk Nieuwenhuis
                                LF            -              Mike Baxter/Collin Cowgill
                                UT          -              Jordany Valdespin

                But…  I expect much more to happen to the 40-man before opening day.
