RF - Stefan Sabol - 1-4, 15.4% SwStr, 25% Whiff/Swing, 3.25 Pitches/PA


Recapish


            The Binghamton Mets played a tight 3-2 game with the Trenton Thunder for 7 innings Monday afternoon before the Thunder exploded for 6 runs over the final two frames to make this game a laugher by the end. The B-Mets showed some life at the plate early, but then finished the game with just 2 hits over their final 7 trips to the plate.
            It wasn’t a bad outing for Lara, but the B-Mets needed a little more length out of him, and he couldn’t hold the 2-1 lead he was given early. A wild pitch from Lara allowed Dustin Fowler to advance into scoring position in the 1st, and then Tyler Austin brought him home with a single to LF.

Recapish


            The Columbia Fireflies took the opener in Rome behind a huge start from Andrew Church and a 5-run 7th inning. Luis Ortega provided the big hit for Columbia when he knocked a 3-run blast into the trees beyond LF.
            Church had excellent control of an electric fastball, which is enough to cruise in the SAL. He threw more than 77% strikes against Rome, and his fastball was consistently 92-94.
            Rome struck first with a run in the 2nd inning on a pair of doubles. Justin Ellison hit a soft liner for a double that landed just fair down the RF line with one out, and then Wigberto Nevarez doubled him home two batters later. Nevarez’s double was just fair down the LF line, but unlike Ellison’s, Wiggy’s had enough on it to roll into the corner.
            Church would scatter 5 hits over his final 5 innings, with only one baserunner reaching second base during that span. Luke Dykstra and Austin Riley started the 6th with back-to-back singles, but Church retired the next 3 in quick and dominant fashion: lazy fly out, foul pop out, and the a strikeout of Lucas Herbert.

2016 Monday Morning Mets Minors Players of the Week


May 23-29, 2016


            Keeping track of the hottest minor leaguers in the Mets farm system.


Hitter of the Week: L.J. Mazzilli. He has been working with the B-Mets hitting coach on his approach at the plate this year and has been consistently hitting the ball with more authority the past few weeks.
Starting Pitcher of the Week: Chris Flexen. The only hit Flexen allowed last week came against the first batter of his start.
Relief Pitcher of the Week: David Roseboom. Roseboom has been one of the most consistent B-Mets relievers this year
Team of the Week: Columbia Fireflies. They were the only affiliate to post a winning week, although they finished the week losing 3 straight in West Virginia.


Minors Players of the Week: 4/7-4/17, 4/18-24, 4/25-5/1, 5/2-5/8, 5/9-15, 5/16-22




3-4 record

Pitchers

Duane Below - 7 IP, 4 H, 1 R (0 ER), 2 2B, 6 TB, 2 BB, 5 K (3 K/Sw), 9 GB: 4 FB: 3 LD: 1 PU, 93 Pitches (59 Strikes), 9 Swinging, 17 Called, 9.7% SwStr, 21.4% Whiff/Swing, 13.3 Pitches/IP, 25 BF
Nice non-40 man, 7th/8th starter for the franchise who is very similar to Sean Gilmartin
Rafael Montero - 6 IP, 3 H, 1 R (1 ER), 1 2B, 4 TB, 5 BB (1 IBB), 3 K (3 K/Sw), 7 GB: 5 FB: 4 LD: 1 PU, 97 Pitches (52 Strikes), 9 Swinging, 13 Called, 9.3% SwStr, 23.1% Whiff/Swing, 16.2 Pitches/IP, 25 BF
The 5 walks were not vintage Montero, but his stuff has been looking good Recap

Josh Edgin - 2 IP, 2 H, 2 TB, 1 BB, 2 K (2 K/Sw), 3 GB: 1 FB: 1 LD, 37 Pitches (18 Strikes), 4 Swinging, 7 Called, 10.8% SwStr, 36.4% Whiff/Swing, 18.5 Pitches/IP, 8 BF
Edgin hasn’t been scored upon since his first outing of the year with St. Lucie, but as his sub-50% strike rate indicates, he’s not challenging hitters in the zone enough. He’s still in the upper-80’s with his fastball and relying a lot on his slider
Chasen Bradford - 2 IP, 2 H, 2 TB, 4 K (3 K/Sw), 2 GB: 2 LD, 32 Pitches (21 Strikes), 4 Swinging, 10 Called, 12.5% SwStr, 36.4% Whiff/Swing, 16 Pitches/IP, 8 BF
Bradford has 17 K’s and hasn’t issued a walk in his last 20.1 IP, a 19-game streak that started on 4/14. Bradford looked really good out of the 51s pen when he came up in 2014 but his BB-rate more than doubled last year. The K-rate isn’t back to his 2014 rates, but his BB-rate is, and he’s been even more effective so far

Recapish


            The Binghamton Mets fell right back to 9 games under .500 with a 6-3 loss to the Trenton Thunder Saturday night. Mickey Jannis had decent command of his stuff, which helped him dominate 7 of the 9 Thunder batters, but the other two teed off against him. Lefty Jordan Montgomery issued 3 walks and would be knocked out before finishing 6 innings, but he allowed very little hard contact, and the Thunder pen followed his lead. Rehabbing Wilmer Flores went 1-2 with a sac fly while playing second base for 7 innings.
            B-Mets starter Mickey Jannis had good control after the 1st inning, but the Thunder got to him for a pair of runs in that frame. Tyler Wade and Lane Adams started their abuse of Jannis in the 1st with a single and double. Those two were the only to pick up hits against Jannis on the night, and they combined for a pair of doubles and a pair of triples.

Mets Minors Transactions, May 22-28, 2016



Keeping track of recent minor transactions within the Mets system






5/23 – Lucas Duda was moved to the 15-day DL, retroactive to 5/21, with a stress fracture of the lower back. Sounds like it could be a long stretch (4-6 weeks) without the big man at 1B. The Mets then DFA’d Dario Alvarez so they could callup Ty Kelly from the Las Vegas 51s.

5/24 – Wilmer Flores joined the B-Mets to begin his rehab.

5/25 – The Braves claimed Dario Alvarez off waivers.

5/28 – The Mets acquired James Loney in exchange for cash considerations. In other news, I just yawned. Still waiting to see if the Mets announce a corresponding 40-man move today or not.
