Recapish


            After their scheduled starter was promoted to the majors Friday night, the Las Vegas 51s had to rely on their bullpen for all nine innings, and they did really well… after the 2nd inning. Fresh off the DL and having not pitched in 9 days, the 51s hoped Beck Wheeler could give them some depth, but he had some control problems in the 1st, and things got worse in the 2nd. Kevin McGowan tried to clean things up for him, but that 2nd inning was determined to end poorly for Las Vegas, and that was essentially the game. Round Rock held a 7-1 lead after the 2nd, and while the 51s pen combined for 6 scoreless frames to close the game, the 51s single-heavy attack on offense produced little results.

Recapish


            The Binghamton Rumble Ponies kept the good feels rolling with a sixth straight win to start the home stand. Casey Delgado struggled with command early in this start, but he limited the damage enough in each of the first three innings, and his teammates picked him up at the plate. After the Yard Goats tied the game in the top half of the 3rd, Kevin Kaczmarski went out and hit a homer to get the lead back in the bottom half, and the Rumble Ponies pitching did the rest. With all the minors games going at the same time as the Mets game, I miss things some times, but this strikeout from Cory Burns was so weird that it made it to deadspin.

Recapish


            While Jordan Humphreys and Merandy Gonzalez have received a lot of attention for their success in securing a win nearly every time they start for Columbia this year, Blake Taylor has quietly had the opposite problem: even when he’s pitched well, he’s come up on the short end. Unfortunately for the Fireflies, he didn’t pitch that well in Lexington Friday night, allowing a pair of homers among eight hits over 5.1 IP, with two walks issued, and he took his sixth loss of the year.

            Check out yesterday’s results here.

            The Mets are promoting Tyler Pill to take Rafael Montero’s spot on the roster, so I discussed Tyler Pill and the starting depth at the upper levels here.

            The Mets got some good injury news today, as Yoenis Cespedes was cleared to start rehab games with St. Lucie, which means he should be back soon provided no set backs. The St. Lucie Mets also received some good injury news today, as Peter Alonso was cleared to return to game action, and he’s back in the lineup tonight.

The Tyler Pill Call-up and The Mets Upper Level Starting Depth



Reviewing whether Pill was the best call-up option and who else is available at Las Vegas and Binghamton

            If you know nothing else about Tyler Pill, you’re probably pretty excited by the fact the Mets are calling up a 26-year old 4th round pick from 2011 who is currently leading the offensively charged PCL with a 1.96 ERA. If you know his basic four-pitch repertoire is considered average, at best, across the board and his fastball tops out at 89, you’re probably keeping expectations tempered. If you know his career PCL ERA is at 5.58 even after this recent seven-start stretch, you’re probably scratching your head that this is the Mets best internal option for a start in mid-May, and wondering how the season ever got to this point. That second part would take a long post and some alcohol to answer, and it would probably just boil down to injuries. However, I’d like to quickly review the first part, and look to see whether the Mets had a better starting option in the upper minors, before previewing Tyler Pill.

Recapish


            The Las Vegas 51s troubles continued Thursday night in Round Rock, as they fell 10 games below .500 after a 6-4 loss to the Express. 51s starter Sean Gilmartin was knocked out down 4-2 in the 5th, but Brandon Nimmo got those runs right back after he left. Unfortunately for the struggling 51s, the bats went quiet after that and Ben Rowen allowed a two run homer in the 8th, which proved to be the difference in this game.
