Minor League Player of The Night - Noah Syndergaard, with 8 great innings,a 430 foot double, a 400+ foot 2 run homer, and a lined single. You know, Babe Ruth.
Honorable Mention - josh Rodgriguez, with a 2 run homer and 2 run double for most of Binghamton's offense in a close win.Eudor Garcia onxa 2 game tear.
AAA - Las Vegas - (20-8) 8- Albuquerque 11-17) 2
RHSP Noah Syndergaard - 8.0-IP, 5-H, 2-R, 8-K, 0-BB, 1.82, 3-4, 2-R, HR, 2-RBI, .455
Mack - an amazing stat line... this is Thor's 3rd excellent outing in a row... he has now given up only 2 runs over his last 22 innings pitched.
RHRP Jack Leathersich - 1.0-IP, 0-H, 0-R, 2-K, 0-BB, 2.00
Mack - 'Leather' is also settling in... this is his 4th 'run-less outing... in fact, he only gave up runs (2) in one of his last 10 outings.
RF Travis Taijeron - 2-4, 1-R, double, 1-RBI, 1-K, .370
Mack - I guess we also need to keep our eye on Taijerson, who seems to be lined up as the next in line to be promoted to a Mets utility outfield position.
One thing about Taijeron - He's always been known for his power... The Baseball Cube gives him a power rating of 98... but he's never produced more than he's doing right now. Taijeron's slugging percentage this season is .623, the highest it has ever been since his senior year in college at Cal Poly Pomona.
This would be such an easy decision if this guy batted from the left side of the plate, but he doesn't. The Mets are paying John Mayberry Jr. $1.45mil to be the right hand hitting utility outfielder and Junior is only hitting .136 (3-22) and they have been known for eating contracts if thigs aren't working out (Chris Young).
I think there is a good chance we could see this guy before the All-Star break if 1) Mayberry doesn't break out of his slump, 2) Taijeron keeps red hot, and 3) the Mets lead in the NL-East continues to go away.
AA - Binghamton (16-11) 5 - Portland (11-16) 4
