A+ Florida State League: St. Lucie RAIN

A South Atlantic League: Savannah 3/8/4 @ Asheville 6/12/1

Dawrin Frias and Paul Paez combined to give up 4 very important runs in the 8th inning, because Savannah put up a 3 spot in the 9th, ultimately losing 6-3, with the loss going to a totally undeserving Logan Taylor, who gave up 2 unearned runs on 6 hits in 5.1 innings. He struck out 8, and has struck out 14 in his first 11 innnings back in Savannah following TJS. Champ Stuart delivered a pair of singles and stole his 13th base of the season. Victor Cruzado had the only other multi hit game, he singled and doubled in four trips. Dom Smith continues to flirt with the .300 mark.

New York Penn League Short Season A-Brooklyn 0/5/0 @ Connecticut 2/5/0

In another rain shortened game the Cyclones were shutout by the Connecticut Tigers. Marcos Molina pitched well but unfortunately not well enough to overcome the dead offense. Early in the season though Molina has been pitching extremely well. Juan Urena and Michael Katz did however collect two hits apiece.

Florida State League High A-Lakeland 1/7/1 @ St. Lucie 6/10/2

In another rain shortened game the Mets put up quite a bit of offense behind a strong pitching performance by Domingo Tapia. The little offensive explosion was a total team effort as all but two players in the starting lineup collected at least one hit.

Eastern League AA-Binghamton 11/13/0 @ Erie 4/12/0

Binghamton played the only full game in the Mets system on Monday. Gabriel Ynoa started, pitching pretty well but giving up a lot of hits. The offense absolutely exploded and just about every player was in on the act. Four Mets had multi hit games and Darrell Ceciliani drove in four. Brandon Nimmo has certainly cooled down in AA but he’s found his pop. Dilson Herrera on the other hand has continued to tear it up.

Note: Six prospects: d’Arnaud (2), Wilmer (5), deGrom (13), den Dekker (16), Black (17), Familia (19) have all graduated.

It’s time to update MPHs top prospects list as we’re firmly into the baseball season.

01. RHSP Noah Syndergaard Somewhat uneven season, marred by a pair of injury scares. BB/K is extremely sexy, Vegas is a nightmare. Still has TOR upside.
02. LF Michael Conforto Would be nice if he were already in the system, but Boras strikes again or something.
03. LHSP Steven Matz (+3) Is flashing a fastball consistently in the mid 90s, with a curve and change that are steadily developing. Is finally at an age appropriate league and dominating thru 3 starts (4/20 BB/K in 18.2 innings)
04. OF Brandon Nimmo (+7) Nimmo’s answered most of the questions from last season with a season that even the most hopeless optimist couldn’t have predicted. Promoted to AA, the walk/K rates have remained, while the average is low due to a .230 BABIP
05. 2B Dilson Herrera (+7) Herrera’s put up a great season as a 20 year old, advancing to AA and showing no signs of slowing down, with an .890 OPS thru 71 ABs. His walk rate has spiked, as well, with the promotion, though his K rate, has, as well.
06. C Kevin Plawecki (+4) Plawecki destroyed EL pitching before being promoted to Vegas, where he’s gotten off to a slow start. An average defensive catcher, Plawecki’s value comes from an above average bat.
07. 1B Dominic Smith (UNCH) A lefty aged 19 in the Hitter’s Graveyard known as Grayson Stadium, Smith has flashed consistent doubles pop, shown an extremely advanced judgement of the strike zone, and is hitting .340 since April 25th with an .810 OPS. What’s not to like here?
08. SS Amed Rosario (+4) More than holding his own as a wildly underaged 18 year old in the college dominated NYPL, Rosario has flashed off some of the tools which have scouts drooling. In 100 ABs split between Savannah and Brooklyn, a double, 2 triples, 2 homers, 7 walks. .709 OPS (111 wRC+) in the NYPL.
09. RHSP Rafael Montero (-5) Montero’s been slightly less good than he was last season, and not that he’s any less of a prospect, but he slides a few rankings in what’s overall, in my opinion, a stronger system, despite graduating 6 of MPHs top 20 prospects.
10. RHSP Gabriel Ynoa (-1) There is no bigger indication of the strength of the Mets system than this ranking right here. Gabriel Ynoa’s had a fantastic season, even better if you remove his April, and yet, he moves down a spot on the list. 15 walks in 87.1 innings along with 64 Ks and a 4.23 era which is inflated by a near 7 era in April.

11. RHSP Michael Fulmer (-3) Fulmer’s having a rather meh season, so he slides 3 spots.
12. RHSP Marcos Molina (+33) He was an oversight by me preseason. That’s totally my bad.
13. SS Gavin Cecchini (+11) Had a good half season in Savannah, scuffling as a 20 year old in St. Lucie.
14. RHSP Casey Meisner (+9) Despite getting shelled in his last outing, Meisner is still running a nifty
15. 3b/1b Jhoan Urena (+29) Urena skyrockets 29 spots on the back of a hot 100 ABs or so in Brooklyn, he’s running a .333/.402/.500/.902 line (165 wRC+) as a 19 year old with a stellar 10.3% walk rate.

AA Eastern League: Binghamton 5/9/5 @ Erie 4/11/2

Brandon Nimmo broke out today, gathering 3 hits and scoring a run as the Mets overcame 5 errors and won a nailbiter 5-4 in Erie. Dilson Herrera blasted his 3rd EL homer, his 6th overall, to give the Mets their final 2 runs and the margin of victory. Dustin Lawley and Darrell Ceciliani also had multi hit games.

The 51′s fell to 56-42 on the season with this loss. Today was Noah Syndergaard’s day to pitch but him,along with Kevin Plawecki, were en route to the Futures Game in Minnesota. In Thor’s place,Giancarlo Alvarado started and gave up three runs in four innings. Wally Backman was ejected on Wally Backman Replica Jersey Night! #WallyBall for life!!!!
