Miller Diaz: 6 IP, 2 H, 1 R, 1 ER, 3 BB, 7 K, 2 WP. Interesting. Diaz has a good arm, and at one time was more or less penciled in to start the season in Savannah. He had a poor spring so the Mets held him back for Brooklyn. He just turned 21 and has fanned 30 and walked 12 in his 25.1 IP for the Cyclones so far. He can make a claim as the top pitching prospect on the Cyclones this year.
R (APP): Kingsport Mets @ Burlington Royals – ppd by rain
R (GCL): @ GCL Nationals 6, GCL Mets 4
SS Luis Guillorme: 2-for-2, 2 BB. The 18-year-old Guillorme had a reputation as a slick fielder with a more questionable bat. He’s hit .368/.455/.395 (14-for-38) with five walks and four strikeouts in his first 11 games in the GCL. Thirteen of his 14 hits have been singles.
Second-round pick Andrew Church: 1.2 IP, 5 H, 2 R, 2 ER, 0 BB, 2 K. He’s given up 10 hits in five innings of GCL work. This is probably a good time to remind you that GCL stat lines mean very little.
DH Justin Turner: 0-for-4, BB, 2 K
LF Cory Vaughn: 2-for-4
