Upper Levels Wednesday: Rain, Josh Satin and Chris Schwinden

AAA: @ Fresno Grizzlies (SF) 6, Las Vegas 51s 3

Satin 51s HeadBad: Chris Schwinden did not give his 51s a chance in this one: 4 IP, 8 H, 6 R, 6 ER, 0 BB, 3 K, 3 HR.

Good: Josh Satin (pictured) homered again, his third already in a 2-for-4 night while lifting his batting average to .483/.516/.862 (!) after a week’s worth of play.

Interesting: Where the 51s played.
Wilmer Flores played second as he has in each of the five games in which he has played in the field. Reese Havens has shifted to third when Flores plays second, a pattern that has happened twice. Zach Lutz played left field for the second time and the outfield for the third time overall. Flores had a slow week, going 4-for-21 with a double, but the good news is that he walked five times and struck out just once for an odd-looking .190/.321/.238 line. Lutz too; he was 3-for-22 with two doubles for a .136/.227/.231 line. Again, seven games.  Havens has hit five singles in 14 AB for a .357/.412/.357 beginning.

So Flores will never play third for the Mets, so they’re trying to figure out if he can play second. Havens and Lutz need to learn to play multiple positions if they will ever help a big league roster. And Josh Satin only plays first.


AA: Binghamton Mets 1, @ Erie SeaWolves (DET) 0   (suspended mid-4)

They’ll pick this one up on August 9. I wonder how many of the starting 18 for both teams will still be available by August 9.

Cory Mazzoni got three scoreless innings of work in with three strikeouts and a walk.
