The @MetsProspectHub Down On The Farm Report


It is time for another edition of our bi-weekly segment Down on the Farm from Minor League Reporter @MetsProspectHub as he takes a look at what’s been happening in the farm system.

Las Vegas 51s

Pregame 06/16/14: 40-30
Pregame 07/01/14: 49-35
Record: 9-5
Games Played: 14

I’m really not sure what to talk about here, virtually every single player who we’d care about is in the majors. Matt Reynolds and Kevin Plawecki were recently promoted from Binghamton, though, and have gotten off to wildly different starts. Reynolds is hitting .368/.390/.526/.917 through his first eleven games, thirty-eight at-bats, with fourteen hits, including six doubles. Plawecki, on the other hand, is off to a tough 1-15 start in Las Vegas. The 51s have righted their ship after call ups decimated their roster.

Binghamton Mets

Pregame 06/16/14: 38-31
Pregame 07/01/14: 49-33
Record: 9-2
Games Played: 11

The story here is Dilson Herrera having gotten off to a great start since being promoted from St. Lucie. Herrera played in all eleven games and has hit .356/.408/.489/.897 with three doubles and a homer, as well as four walks. Excellent start to his AA career, that’s for sure.

And I’d be remiss if I didn’t point out the run unheralded righty Tyler Pill’s been on lately. Not only has he been pitching great (two starts, 14.2 innings, 9 hits, 2 earned, no walks, 15 strikeouts, 1.23 era) he’s been an offensive juggernaut. Including a single as a pinch hitter, Pill is 6 for his last 7 with four runs scored, a double, homer and four driven in.

St. Lucie Mets

Pregame 06/16/14: 38-29
Pregame 07/01/14: 47-32 (7-3 second half)
Record: 9-3
Games Played: 12

St. Lucie narrowly missed out on the first half divisional title, taking it down to the last day, and have responded by coming out in the second half and winning 7 of 10. A large part of that has been the play of recent call up LJ Mazzilli, who’s hit .333/.395/.564/.959 over his first 11 games in the FSL, with three doubles, two homers and seven RBI. However, he hasn’t been alone in his hot hitting. Eudy Pina, a sleeper outfield prospect, has been raging hot for the better part of a month, and over these last dozen games, he’s hit an eyepopping .432/.444/.818/1.263 with a corresponding .472 BABIP. 19-44, seven doubles and a pair of triples and homers.

Savannah Sand Gnats

Pregame 06/16/14: 44-22
Pregame 07/01/14: 52-26 (8-4 second half)
Record: 8-4
Games Played: 12

The story offensively here over the past dozen games has been Champ Stuart (.308/.500/.410/.910, .462 BABIP, 12-39, thirteen runs, two doubles and a triple with fifteen walks against thirteen strikeouts), and the continued great season Dom Smith is having (excluding most of the month of April, of course). Over these dozen games, Dom played in eleven and hit .333/.391/.500/.891 (.400 BABIP) with seven doubles amongst his fourteen hits, as well as four walks and just seven strikeouts in forty-two ABs. Dom’s done an outstanding job all season controlling the strike zone, as evidence by his stellar 28/49 BB/K ratio in 282 ABs. Remember, he did not turn nineteen until mid June this season, so he’s absurdly young for the league he’s in.

The short season leagues started up, and rather than discuss performances over a ridiculously small fifteen or so game sample size, I’ll list off some intriguing prospects on each stateside team

And that’s all for this one. Follow me on Twitter (@metsprospecthub) for daily prospect updates and discussion, and make sure to check out my website, MetsProspectHub. Until the 16th or so of July, I’m Tejesh Patel, and have a great day!
