FLASH - SP - Angel Cuan

Florida State League - Pitcher of the Week

Angel Cuan, St. Lucie

(1-0, 0.00 ERA, 1 G, 1 GS, 7 IP, 2 H, 0 R, 0 ER, 0 HR, 0 HBP, 0 BB, 9 K)

The left-hander, who turns 24 on Wednesday, is making a habit out of not allowing a run through seven innings. A week after doing just that, he repeated the performance Saturday for the Mets' Class A Advanced affiliate. But at the same time, he improved by increasing his strikeout total (6 to 9) while lowering his hits (3 to 2) and walks allowed (1 to 0). In fact, St. Lucie manager Ryan Ellis told MiLB.com, "The way he was going, I have no question he could have possibly gone nine tonight," had it not been necessary to get rehabbing hurlers Jeurys Familia and Scott Atchison an inning each.
