Recent Injuries/Transactions

            The B-Mets added top-30 prospects Michael Conforto and Robert Gsellman to their roster over the weekend at the expense of Jayce Boyd (off to Las Vegas) and John Gant (off to St. Lucie). Yeixon Ruiz was also added as a super utility guy.


            Michael Conforto is the storyline in Binghamton right now, and he will probably continue to be so until he reaches Las Vegas. The Mets have some solid position player prospects in their system, but Conforto’s bat is considered to be better than anything the Mets have had coming up for awhile, so there’s reason to be excited. Gavin Cecchini has been one of the best hitters in the EL while playing solid defense at SS, so the B-Mets have two of the top prospects in the system, and Brandon Nimmo should join the party in a few weeks.

            It’s the AA’s version of the subway series (aka, the interstate series?), and the Mets-Yankees rivalry can even increase the intensity of minor league games, as there tends to be packed houses and a buzz in the stands. With the way Gabriel Ynoa is pitching in 2015, you could argue the Mets are sending the least interesting part of their rotation out there for the first two games.
