A Busy Mets Thursday in the Arizona Fall League

All of the Mets pitcher threw Thursday, making their Arizona Fall League debuts and the results were not, on the whole good as the four pitchers combined to allow four runs, all earned, over five innings with nine hits, a walk, and four strikeouts.

Pitchers
Ryan Fraser: 1 IP, 2 H, 1 R, 1 ER, 0 BB, 0 K
Greg Peavey: 1 IP, 2 H, 1 R, 1 ER, 0 BB, 2 K
Adam Kolarek: 1 IP, 2 H ,1 R, 1 ER, 1 BB, 1 K
Chase Huchingson: 2 IP, 3 H, 1 R, 1 ER, 0 BB, 1 K

The Surprise pitch fx had Fraser at 91-93, touching 94 with a curve at 79-80.
Peavey also was listed at 92-93 in his inning of work, while showing a slider at 83 mph, and a changeup at 87.
Kolarek was sitting 90-92 with a slider at 80-81.
Huchingson was 88-93 with a slider at 83-85 and something listed as a changeup at 77. I say “listed” because usually great separation off a fastball is 10 mph, and that would be 11-15 mph off his heater.

Either the gun is a little hot, or Peavey is throwing harder out of the bullpen than he did as a starter. In fact, based on all of these velo readings, I’d suggest that the gun is a smidge hot.

 

Position Players
RF Cesar Puello: 2-for-5, 1 RBI, 2 K. Two games, four strikeouts and zero walks for Puello. Lets see if he draws a walk before November.
CF Darrell Ceciliani: 0-for-3, 2 BB, R, K
3B Dustin Lawley: 2-for-4, 2B, 2 RBI, 1 K. Lawley is taking 2B/SS Danny Muno’s place on the Surprise roster. The 23-year old hit .261/.333/.434 in 121 games for Savannah this year, mostly playing leftfield. When Aderlin Rodriguez was promoted to St. Lucie, Lawley played more often at third, where he also played in college. He has some pop that Historic Grayson Stadium helped mask in 2012. Still, he was old for the SAL, and will need to hit more.
