Thurber Producing for the 'Clones

Whatever Mets scout recommended they draft Charley Thurber saw more than what his numbers indicated. In 2011, playing for the University of Tennessee, Thurber hit only .230, a 61 point drop from the 2010 season. Despite his low average, the Mets drafted him in the 39th round, making him a low-risk selection, and then assigned him to Brooklyn.

The Elmira, New York native has played in 12 games for the Cyclones and is hitting .277, the sixth-highest average on the team. In his last three games, all multi-hit, he's gotten seven hits, all singles.

One negative: in 47 at bats he's walked twice while striking out 15 times.
