Minor League Recap - 4-27-15

Three wins from 2 teams.  The other 2 were happy to have the night off.

Minor League Player of The Night - Noah Syndergaard decided to show Matt Harvey how it's really done with a masterful, compler 7 inning shutout, holding the bad guys to 2 hits, walking not a batter, and striking out 9. Plenty of offensive support in the 51'S twin bill from Alex Castellanos, who is hotting like another outfielder of an earlier era: Joe Dimaggio: Alex's 3 for 5 night included his 8th double and 6th homer of the short season, giving him an OPS of 1.272!

Honorable Mention - Robert Gsellman for also tossing 2 hit ball, for St Lucie over 6 innings, followed by 3 innings of hitless relief.  A special mention for the 3 guys who are tearing it up and fighting hard to make the bigs, Herrera, Reynolds, and Monell, who went 8 for 16 with 7 RBI.  Reynolds now has 21 RBIs.

Vegas stomped Albuquerque, 8-0 and 3-2 in their twin bill.

AAA - Las Vegas - (11-8) vs. Albuquerque (9-10)

    Game 1 - RHSP Noah Syndergaard - 7 IP, 2 H, 0 BB, 9 K, 2.45

    Game 2 - RHSP Darin Gorski - 5 IP, 4 H, 2 R, 2BB, 3 K, 5.68

Nice bounce back start by Gorski, and the 2nd game was secured when Castellanos homered to give the 51s their margin of victory.

AA - Binghamton - suspended due to rain - will complete today


A+ - St. Lucie (10-9) 7  - Jupiter (7-12) 1

    1B Dominic Smith - I don't have the details but Smith has been seen in a walking boot and the assumption would be that he is unable to play or on the disabled list.

    RHSP Robert Gsellman -  6.0-IP, 2-H, 1-R, 6-K, 1-BB, 2.14

    DH Maikis de la Cruz -  2-4, HR, 2 RBIs, .319

Jeff McNeil continued his robust hitting with 2 more hits and a walk, and is up to .318.  Akeel Morris threw a perfect 9th and fanned a batter.

A - Savannah - no game scheduled

No goats on a 3-0 night where the Mets farmhands outscored their opponents 18-3.

The last two outings by Steven Matz and Noah Syndergaard have really charged me up.

Especially Thor, who I was beginning to lose faith in.

I have no idea what the Mets are going to do with all this pitching talent

Yep, it is crazy with the minor league pitching bottleneck. Obviously, Matz and Thor have to show consistent dominance before they'd force the Mets' hand...but on other teams, they'd either be in their major league rotation right now, or imminently.

Maybe both get added to the pen, a la Familia, until it makes sense to move a guy out or until Colon's contract is up.

Heck, it was just one game, but Fulmer's outing makes one wonder if he has what it takes to be a good major league bullpen arm soon.

I think it was 3 years ago when the farm system had only one .300 hitter (Rivera). Now, the seams are popping.
