Corey Oswalt’s uneven start to 2017 took a turn for the good this afternoon, as he struck out 7 across six fantastic innings, allowing just 4 hits and an unearned run along the way for his 2nd win of the season. Oswalt, an overslot 7th round pick in 2012, now has 23 Ks in 23 innings across 4 starts in AA. Don’t count him out as a darkhorse 2nd half bullpen callup. Champ Stuart was on base thrice and stole 3 bases, but overall he’s had an extremely disappointing/poor/awful start to his 2017.

Alex Palsha notched his 2nd save for the Mets. Offensively, rehabbing Brandon Nimmo was on base thrice with a double, walk and FC, and Wuilmer Becerra notched three hits and 4 RBI.

Remember that thing about Rosario needing to walk more, that I said yesterday? Well, today, he walked twice. And also had a pair of RBI singles, including the game tying hit in the 8th as the 51s rallied from 5-0 down early, and 6-5 down late to win it, 7-6 on the road in Sacremento. Chasen Bradford notched his 4th save.

Jordan Humphreys continued his dominant start to 2017, striking out a career high 12 across 6.2 inningsa, allowing just 5 hits and 2 runs (1 scored after he departed, courtesy Taylor Henry), with two walks. Humphreys updated line thru 4 GS: 25.1 ip, 15 h, 4 er, 3/34 bb/k. That’ll play just fine. According to @LairdRon on Twitter, Humphreys was low 90s T93 with his fastball, which is plenty for midA ball. At just 20 years old, he may have a tick or two more projection to take that into the 91-93 T95 range, which gives you a mid rotation starter, if his secondaries come along.

Amed Rosario’s game tying triple in the 9th, his third hit of the game, only prolonged the game for Beck Wheeler to give up a walkoff, but it did push the 21 year old’s average over .400 (.403). His AAA OPS is now .978, but keep in mind it’s the #PCLOL. More important is only 3 walks in 70 PAs, and 4 XBH. All that to say – he’s not ready yet. He’s close, he could probably come up and OPS .700 with gold glove calibre SS defense, but why rush him for that? Give him 3 or 4 months, let him marinate, and get you the hitting version of deGrom, Harv and Noah (who have all hit the ground running and haven’t looked back, except for all of Harv’s injury issues).

Dom Smith and Phillip Evans also had multi hit games, with Evans playing left field. When (and if) the Mets get sick and tired of carrying garbage on the 40 man roster (Montero, Edgin, Gilmartin, Reyes, Reynolds), Evans would probably make a good callup, he can fake it at 3 infield positions and now is learning left field. If only… but that would require the Mets to not be morons with the 40 man roster.

Not much to say about this one, but keep an eye on hard throwing lefty reliever Alberto Baldonado. Walks have been a big issue with him for a long time (24 in 56.2 innings in 2015, 31 in 59.2 innings last year), but so far this season in a very small sample size 1 walk in 8 innings. If he’s ironed that out, he could be next up for the Mets bullpen.

Despite a low .125 average, Tomas Nido is not back to his ridiculous strike out ways, he’s struck out just three times in 32 ABs (34 PAs), so I’d look for some sort of rebound from Nido as he adjusts to AA pitching. Kevin Kaczmarski’s 26 years old and has a low .700s OPS early, it would be more telling if he could play some center field, you could see a future for him as a backup OFer in that situation. As it stands, he played no center in St. Lucie and very limited center in Columbia last year (17 games).
