AAA Pacific Coast League: Las Vegas

Noah Syndergaard was not at his sharpest tonight, he had a very bad early game, struggling mightly with his command (at one point having 20 strikes in 40 pitches). He righted himself and kept his team in the game, the hallmark of a good pitcher on an off night, but he took the loss after giving up 4 runs (3 earned) on 6 hits and 2 walks in 5 innings. He threw 91 pitches, 61 for strikes.

AA Eastern League: Binghamton 7/10/1 vs Erie 2/6/3

Matt Bowman had a very good EL debut, scattering a run on 3 hits in 5 innings, while striking out 4. He was in complete control the whole time he was in the game, generating 9 of his 10 none strikeout outs via the ground. Jack Leathersich walked one and struck out 2 in his inning of work, he’s now walked 4 and struck out 9 in 3.1 innings this season. Offensively, Kevin Plawecki, Darrell Ceciliani and Wilfredo Tovar had multi hit games.

32 1/2 year old Brian Burgamy was 1 for 4. In my opinion, there should be an upper age limit mandated for the various levels of play, having someone over age 28 in an AA league is absolutely ridiculous and should not be allowed, in the same way that you cannot have 3+ years of experience and still play in the complex rookie leagues. Also – the fact Darrell Ceciliani isn’t a permanent fixture in the 2 hole, and this 32 year old scrub hit in that spot today… another total joke. One of Jayce Boyd/Ceciliani should be hitting 2nd, permanently.

A+ Florida State League: St. Lucie 5/9/0 @ Jupiter 2/9/2

Matt Koch had a very Koch-like FSL debut, minus striking out people. He allowed 2 runs on 8 hits and no walks in 6 innings. That, of course, matches everything we know about Koch. Someone with good stuff, who walks no one, strikes people out, and for whatever reason, gives up a high amount of hits. He picked up the win, Beck Wheeler notched his second save. Dilson Herrera, making his first Mets appearance at shortstop, had 2 hits, drove in a run and scored a run. Brandon Nimmo was on base three times with a single and 2 walks, he scored twice.

A South Atlantic League: Savannah 3/6/2 vs Augusta 8/10/1

Ricky Knapp didn’t escape the 3rd inning, ultimately getting charged with 6 runs (3 earned) on 4 hits and 2 walks in 2.1 innings to take the loss. Akeel Morris struck out an eyepopping 9 in 3 shutout innings of relief, including 4 in the 8th inning (WP/SO). I wish the Mets would give him one final look as a starter, and hopefully they will in the 2nd half post-promotions. Jared King, who is proving (very early) that he outclasses the SAL, and Dom Smith, had multi hit games.
