            A 17-year old LHP named Nelmerson Angela made his pro debut in the DSL today after signing with the Mets recently (picture here) - iscorecast available, he had 2 K's and 2 BB's in the 5th, and he allowed a run.

Nelmerson Angela in action

            From Kiley McDaniel’s prospect chat: “Caught a game of [Dominic Smith] in Florida and hope to get another on my next trip down later this month. Two scouts I talked to said he was the best hitter in the league and the raw power is still there, so this is just one of those “power will show up in games later” situations. The track record of really good hitters getting to that power is very positive, so as long as the contact is still good, I think it comes together. The pre-draft Todd Helton comp is still in the ballpark.”
            Also, “[Gavin Cecchini] can play short, but it’ll never be fantastic.”

            ICYMI, Rafael Montero was moved to the GCL Mets today to begin his rehab.

            Lynn Worthy says that B-Mets vet Josh Rodriguez is still aiming high.

            MiLB talked to Casey Meisner after his latest strong performance for the St. Lucie Mets.

Post-game recap: The Tourists jumped ahead early and never looked back against the Sand Gnats Tuesday night, as these two teams opened a series in Savannah. Casey Delado retired the first two batters of the 1st inning in short order, but then allowed a single and homerun to put Savannah in a 2-0 hole before they came to the plate. Asheville would tack on 2 more in the 2nd, which was all they’d need against a light offensive attack from the Sand Gnats. The Gnats got a run back on a sac fly from Katz in the 3rd inning, but that was all they could out of a bases loaded, 0 outs situation. They managed 3 hits (including a double with Moore on 1B) in the 6th, but could only score 1 in the frame, and left the bases loaded. Villasmil did a good job over his first two innings in relief of Delgado, but the Toursits would light him up for 3 runs in the 9th, which was the final nail in the coffin for this game.

Post-game recap: Welcome to the GCL, where the final score doesn’t really matter, but the guys beginning their rehabs there often do. Tuesday featured the sudden reappearance of Rafael Montero, another homerun from Jhoan Urena, a triple from Ivan Wilson, and a third straight scoreless appearance from Luis Mateo. Montero threw 11 pitches (6 strikes) in the 1st inning, allowing a leadoff single (base runner would be eliminated on a CS), and striking out the final batter of the frame. The actual game was very back-and-forth, with the Mets taking a 1-0 lead in the 1st inning on the RBI triple from Wilson (Urena scored from 1B on the play). Guedez retired the first 5 batters that he’d face, but then allowed 3 straight hits for 2 runs and a Cardinals lead. The Mets would take the lead back with a bases loaded HBP and sac fly in the bottom of the 3rd. The Cardinals would tie it up in the 4th, but again the Mets came right back to take the lead, scoring 2 runs without a hit. Luis Mateo came in for the 7th and worked around a leadoff single, striking out a batter before inducing two groundouts. The Cardinals took a one-run lead in the top of the 9th, but Jhoan Urena turned on the first pitch in the 9th for a solo blast to tie the game. Ali Sanchez would reach on a single in the inning, so the speedy Cecilio Aybar was substituted as a pinch-runner, and he’d come around to score on an RBI single from Will Barring for a walk off win.

Minors MVP of the Day – Jhoan Urena launched the first pitch of the 9th inning for a game-tying homerun, his second straight game with a GCL HR. Hopefully that rehab is over soon.
Minors Cy of the Day – DEGROM!! With no great options in the minors, and Jacob deGrom owning the AL during the 6th inning of the All-Star game, how could it be anyone else?
