Rookie Ball Tuesday – The Speedsters Hit for Kingsport

Rookie (APP): @ Pulaski Mariners 8, Kingsport Mets 6

kmetslogo20-year-old C Juan Torres was 4-4 with a triple in his sixth game in Kingsport.  Four other K-Mets collected two hits.  At the top of the order, Darrell Ceciliani (.265/.367/.426) was 2-5 with a double, RBI and two stolen bases.  He’s 8/9 stealing bases in 18 games.  2B Alonzo Harris (.301/.333/.566) was 2-5 to lift his batting average over .300 in 25 games.

Yohan Almonte (0-1, 11.57) was roughed up for six runs on eight hits, including two homers, in 4.2 innings.  Through four innings, he allowed just three singles, but after getting a strikeout to begin the fifth, the inning went double, single, homer, double, groundout, walk, homer.

Rookie (GCL): @ GCL Nationals 13, GCL Mets 10

Gotta love rookie ball.  The Nats won despite committing 6 errors.  Mets 2o-year-old 2B Ray Van Gurp was 3-5.

Sal Aguilar is slowing building up his arm strength for a return to Binghamton.  He gave up one run on three hits with three strikeouts in three innings.  His three GCL appearances by innings have gone: 1, 2, and 3.

        Where do you think he would be in your top 41 list today? Do the Mets look at him like he could be a 2B of the future?

    Nice to see 17-year-old GCL Mets SS Wilfredo Tovar bounce back with a good game (2-5, 2B, 2 RBI) after a 5-game mini-slump that saw him go 1-for-19 (although he had 3 BB to just 2 K over that stretch).

    Any news on the Mets’ unsigned draft picks? Sure would be nice to add those three 18-year-old pitchers (LHP Steven Matz, Rd 2; RHP Damien Magnifico, Rd 4; LHP Zach Dotson, Rd 13) to the GCL Mets rotation. Other than those three, 20-year-old 6th round RHP David Buchanan and 17-year-old 9th round C Jeff Glenn appear to be the only outstanding unsigned picks of interest.
