A-Ball Monday: TJ Rivera Leads St. Lucie; Ad-Rod Walk-Watch Continues…

A+: St. Lucie Mets 2, @ Charlotte Stone Crabs 1 

Rivera Gnats Head2B TJ Rivera drove home both Mets’ runs while going 2-for-4 with a walk. At .310/.383/.394, the 24-year-old was the only guy in the St. Lucie lineup Monday hitting above .280. Rivera (pictured), who can second or short in the minors, provides some nice roster flexibility.

Aderlin Rodriguez played firstbase again and was 1-for-4 with a strikeout. Now hitting .162/.169/.338 he has gone 17 games without drawing a walk while fanning 16 times.

RHP Marcos Camarena worked in and out of trouble to keep the Crabs from doing much damage: 4.2 IP, 5 H, 1 R, 1 ER, 3 BB, 2 K.
