Highlights (Mostly) of Yesterday's Mets Minor League Games

  • Cory Mazzoni pitched another inning for the Cyclones, facing four batters. He struck out three, hit one. Two Cyclones continue to struggle with the bat: Carlos Leyva is hitting .154 and Xorge Carillo is hitting .186.
  • In Kingsport, Greg Pron had another extra-base hit, a double, upping his average to .303. His slugging average is now .525.
  • Savannah outfielder Alonzo Harris went 5 for 5 with two doubles. In his last 10 games, he's hit .417 with a slugging average of .778 and an OPS of 1.210. This is the 21-year-old's fourth season in the Mets organization. 
  • The Sand Gnats' Blake Forsythe's also hit much better in the last 10 than he had before then, averaging .333; however, he continues to strike out too much, 14 in his last 33 at bats. In those games, his slugging average also jumped. It was .590; however, for the season, it's only .396. Another Gnats catcher, Albert Cordero, has the same average in his last 10 as Forsythe. Both had two hits yesterday. Maybe Cordero's success with the bat is motivating Forsythe.
  • Speaking of strikeouts, Matt Den Dekker had three in four at bats, upping his B-Mets total to 53 in 40 games. He's not having the hitting success with the B-Mets that he had at St. Lucie.
  • Finally, Zack Wheeler is scheduled to make his St. Lucie debut today. The player the Mets appear to have passed on in the Beltran trade, Gary Brown, continues to burn up the California League, hitting .432 in his last 10 and having a two-hit game in each of his last four. Plus in those 10, he has only one strikeout.
