Wednesday, July 31st  -

The Mets current rotation (deGrom, Stroman, Syndergaard, Wheeler, Matz) ERA since the all-star break:  1.52

C Ali Sanchez promoted from AA-Binghamton to AAA-Syracuse


      Transferred RP Connor O’Neil to A+ St. Lucie

      Released OF Taylor Lane

      Activated RP Colin Holderman from the IL


      Placed C Colton Plaia on the IL


      Activates C Austin Bossart

            From Jason Vargas deal

Kudos –

AAA-Syracuse – RP Harol Gonzalez: 1-IP, 0-R, K

Interesting… both he and Chris Flexen are 
relieving now at the AAA level. Are these two future members of the Mets pen?

AA-Binghamton – SS Andres Gimenez: 2-2, 2-R, 6th HR, .249

His power seems to be developing and, let’s remember… he his playing at a level where the average age is 2 years older than him.

A+ St. Lucie – LF Wagner Lagrange – 3-4, 3-R, RBI, ,409

I had Wagner as a red start prospect for parts of last season and I am giving it back to him now. He’s the best outfield prospect we have until Freddy Valdez is ready 5 years from now.

A – Columbia – RP Alec Kisena: 5-IP, 0-R, 6-K

Low-A Brooklyn – SP Matt Cleveland: 4.2-IP, 0-R, 8-K, 3.48

            Who is Matt Cleveland, you ask?

The 21/yr. old Matt was a 12th round pick in the 2016 draft, out of Windsor HS (CT). Frankly, he has trudged around since turning pro until the last 4 starts (2-ER in 21.1-IP).

Rookie-Kingsport – RP Josh Hejka: 1-IP, 0-R, 0.00

GCL – RP Robert Colina: 5-IP, 0-R, 3-K, 2.10

DSL-2 – RP Martin Rodriguez: 4.2-IP, 0-R, K

Thursday, August 1st

RHP Jaison Vilera was promoted from A-Columbia to A+ St. Lucie.

The 22-year old Venezuelan had an all-star year in 2017 for the GCL-Mets (11-G, 8-ST, 3-1, 1.88, 0.96) and in 2018 for Brooklyn (13-ST, 5-2, 1.83, 0.98), but he had a rough ride so far this season in Columbia (6-G, 5-ST, 1-3, 9.00, 1.92).Very wild this year, with 30-BB in 61.1 combined innings pitched for the Fireflies, Brooklyn, St. Lucie, and Binghamton.

Ley’s hope he takes a step back now and start over with this promotion.

      Kudos –

            AAA-Syracuse – RP Matt Blackham: 1.1-IP, 0-R, 0.00

            AA-Binghamton – RP Blake Taylor: 2.1-IP, 0-R, 2-K

            A-Columbia – SS Ronny Mauricio: 1-2, R, RBI, .284

            Low-A Brooklyn – RP Hunter Parsons: 2-IP, 0-R, K

Rookie-Kingsport – SS Sebastian Espino: 3-4, 3-R, 2nd HR, 4-RBI

            DSL-2 – SP Alan Ramirez – 6-IP, 0-R, 3-K, 3.41

                  First year pro, born in July 1999.

Mack FIVE MORE YEARS needed for Valdez!!!!! Hell I'll probably be in assisted living (They must have directv right?)by then so HURRY UP FREDDY AND GET READY.

Gary Seagren said...

The one thing no one is talking about is Pete's slump. Is it that he was due or the post HR derby blues or both but the upside is we're winning w/o his production but I hope he comes out of this soon. To bad Smith is hurt or he could spell him for a few days which brings up another question: do we trade him in the off season or keep him into next year knowing he can't show much now with him not projected to return till almost season's end.

Beter PETE has it in EARLY August than the last 40 games of the season.

If Dom will be out for a while, why not bring up Patrick Mazeika for a lefty off the bench that can also spell Alonso and be an emergency catcher? If not now, how about September 1st?

Tony said...

His slump will not last that long, it happens to everyone
