New York Mets Minor League Baseball Commentary and Analysis
[powered by WordPress.]
Baseball America recently unveiled their list of top ten Mets prospects and topping the list is Dominican phenom Fernando Martinez. The kid’s just turned nineteen and he posted good but not great numbers at the Double A level. The kid is a little raw but he definitely has the tools to succeed and it looks like the Mets hope him to be playing with the big league club as early as 2009.
Deolis Guerra checks in at number two as the top pitching prospect and like Martinez, he’s very young. He’ll turn 19 in April and he already has a full season at St. Lucie under his belt. While he didn’t post great numbers, he was at least a level ahead of himself age wise. He did have some shoulder problems and he has yet to throw more then 100 innings in a season. I wouldn’t mind Guerra starting the season back at St. Lucie just to work on some of his pitches against lesser talent before he makes the push to Binghamton.
Carlos Gomez comes in at number three and unlike the top two, he’s major league ready. He hurt his hand when he was hit by a pitch but like the column says, Gomez should compete with Lastings Milledge for a starting outfield job.
Kevin Mulvey and Eddie Kunz round out the top five. Interestingly, Philip Humber has slipped all the way to seven after showing up at four last year.
German Marte gave up a run in the top of the tenth inning and he took the loss as St. Lucie lost to Tampa 3-2. A pretty good start by Deolis Geurra went to waste because of the lack of run support. He gave up two runs on two hits and three walks with three strikeouts in five innings.
Nick Evans belted a solo homerun to account for one of the Mets two runs. Ender Chavez went two for three and he was the only hitter with two hits in the game.
German Marte gave up two runs in the bottom of the eighth as a 2-1 lead turned into a 3-2 loss in a hurry. Marte dropped to 0-1 on the season and a nice start by Deolis Guerra went to waste. He gave up one run on four hits with four strikeouts in five innings of work.
Ambriox Concepcion was the hitting star in the loss. He went two for four and he drove in both Mets runs in the fifth innings.
Deolis Guerra picked up his first win of the season with six shutout innings in his start. He gave up two hits and he struck out four and his record now stands at 1-2.
Daniel Murphy had a nice day at the plate in the 5-2 win. He went three for five with a double and three RBIs. Emmanuel Garcia and Jose Castro each finished with two runs.
Deolis Guerra had a tough start as he took the loss in St. Lucie’s 8-1 loss. He gave up three runs on six hits and two walks with two strikeouts in 4 2/3 innings. All three relievers also gave up at least one run in the blowout loss.
Corey Coles drove in the lone run for St. Lucie. He also finished with two hits while Nick Evans went three for four with a run.
Yesterday it was just one run. Today, St. Lucie was shut out on just five hits in a 2-0 loss. Nick Evans had three of those hits and he doubled twice.
Deolis Guerra took the loss. He gave up two runs on six hits and a walk with one strikeouts in six innings of work.
Deolis Guerra got it done today in a seven inning rain shortened game with Vero Beach. Guerra gave up two hits in five shutout innings and he struck out five.
Joshua Petersen tripled and drove in a run in the 2-0 win. Dustin Martin singled and he scored one of the two runs.
MiLB.com previewed the Mets minor league system today with profiles at each level of the organization as well as a 2006 draft recap. The also project the cream of the crop will be Carlos Gomez and Deolis Guerra. There’s a ton of stuff here and it’s a great read.
Playing baseball or basketball is completely allowed on golf vacations. Whether you need golf equipment or even basketball equipment, everything can be bought from the shops found locally. Playing only golf is pretty relaxing as well.
