DOWN UNDER: Mets Minor League Results - 7-30-15

 STAR OF THE DAY: Gavin Cecchini went 5-6

HONORABLE MENTION: Ty Badamo tossed 7 scoreless.


Las Vegas (59-47) 2 - Sacramento 4

Binghamton (58-46)  11 - Richmond 3

St Lucie (51-51)   - Clearwater ANOTHER RAIN OUT

Savannah (55-47)  3 - Asheville 2

Brooklyn  (21-17) 7 - Hudson Valley 1

Kingsport (18-18) 2 - Pulaski 4

GCL Mets (19-14)  2 - Cardinals 0

DSL METS 1 (26-26)  1 - Giants  4

DSL METS 2 (32-20) 8 - Tigers 5 

Now Here's the Scoop:

Las Vegas sent Luis Cessa (0-2, 8.84) to the mound. 4 runs in the first 2 frames of this loss...but then he struck out the side in the third, and threw two more scoreless innings to start to conquer his AAA demons. Matt Reynolds returns, 1-4, RBI. Nimmo doubled once in 4 ABs.

Binghamton's Rainy Lara gave up 1 hit over 5. The B Mets exploded for 10 runs in the last few innings.  Gavin Cecchini went 5-6, and in 28 July games is a remarkable .400/.467/.550.

St Lucie - slosh slosh slosh.

Savannah's Cory Oswalt threw well in a no decision. Luis Guillorme drove in the game winner in the 7th in another tight Gnats win.

Brooklyn exploded for six runs in the first 3 innings. Tyler Badamo threw seven scoreless innings for the win. Manny Hilario hit a 2 run homer for the Cyclones.

 Kingsport's Darwin Ramos started and threw well in a loss due to lack of hit support. Kevin Kaczmarski went 3-5 with an RBI (.320).  Ivan Wilson fanned 3 more times.

GCL Mets sent 5 pitchers to the mound on Thursday.  All refused to allow any runs to score, hence the 2-0 winning result, pushing the GCL Mets to 5 games over .500 (19-14).  

Tom Szapucki had a perfect IP & 2 K's, as did Max Wotell.

DSL METS 1 lost to a Giants squad playing .700 ball.

DSL METS 2: four errors by the Tigers led to three unearned runs for the Mets in another win that was error-aided.

 GOAT: Jeurys Familia

Ivan Wilson hit the 200 K mark - now at a perhaps unprecedented rate of 201 in 429 official career at bats, all in rookie ball. 37 of 81 this year, so there seems to be little if any progress.

The Mets keep trying because in his career at bats where he does not strike out, he is 86-228 (nearly .400) with 15 Homers, 15 doubles and 5 triples. His slug % when making contact this year is .735. Certainly intriguing. I think it is worth playing him every day, to see if he can fix something.

Holy Cecchini what a month

Thomas Brennan said...

Ernest while Cecchini's high level of errors is baffling, his offense is so far beyond what I expected of him this year. Defense can be repaired, but offensive excellence is not. I think they should get him some time at 3B. If Wright is done, or close to it, a Cecchini bat at 3B in 2016 could be possible.

Hobie said...

Cecchini's errors are mostly what: throwing? transfer? footwork (backing up on balls)? or just plain clank?

Remember Joe Morgan's nickname was "Clank" the first year or so in the majors.


Kevin Kacz needs to come to Brooklyn. Seriously.
