-Nice piece on Holt


-Peavey touched 93 in his first start

- Wogan says they see Goeddel as a legit potential starter and this is not just to get him innings

- Havens is currently taking grounders but not swinging the bat

-Bonser not expected to be out long

-Acosta expected to be activated today, Hernandez in a few days (and be the primary 2b over Turner)

- Tobi Stoner has begun throwing off the mound

-Gronauer early reviews are positive on his handling off the staff

-Armando Rodriguez has a strained oblique and is expected to be out at least the next 4-5 weeks

- Fuller out for the season with shoulder surgery

Stinks on Fuller. Always been injury prone though- thats the big knock on him.

Probably comes back as a reliever.

Lots of great stuff, as usual:

Quote:
“I wasn’t throwing strikes last year,” Holt said. “Right now pitching in general is coming together for me. I’m learning when to use pitches, how to set up hitters the way I want. In order to do that, location is a huge part obviously. I think it’s just using all four of my pitches. Now that I have the cutter, that’s opened up a few more doors as far as how to attack a hitter. They stayed on me in spring training about using my changeup. It’s become a really good pitch. My changeup has developed a lot. I used it a good bit in my start. I’m just mixing up my pitches and not staying so much fastball/curveball the whole time. I’m giving hitters more to look at.”


Quote:
2010 draft picks Matt Harvey (first round, University of North Carolina) and Greg Peavey (sixth round, Oregon State University) have started off quickly in their first professional seasons with a combined 16 scoreless innings. Harvey, pitching for high-A St. Lucie, limited Palm Beach to five hits and two walks while striking out nine in his professional debut Thursday. He stranded five baserunners in his first two innings. Harvey then continued his dominance with six scoreless innings Tuesday at Fort Myers. He has 17 strikeouts in 11 professional innings. Peavey, pitching for low-A Savannah, touched 93 mph with his fastball while limiting West Virginia to two hits and one walk and striking out eight in five run-free innings. Peavey has a four-pitch arsenal (fastball, curveball, slider, changeup).


Quote:
Normally, using a prospect with a track record of relieving as a starter means the organization wants to ensure the pitcher gets innings to develop. But farm director Adam Wogan said Goeddel is going to get consideration to be a starter for his career because of a power fastball and developing changeup.


Quote:
Reese Havens, the 22nd overall pick in 2008, who is the best internal candidate to ultimately emerge as second baseman, continues to work back from injury in Port St. Lucie. Havens had offseason surgery to remove an inch of a rib that was causing irritation. He missed much of last season with oblique issues. He is currently taking grounders, running and throwing at the organization’s Florida complex, but the Mets are being cautious and having him refrain from swinging a bat.


Quote:
Gronauer (.313) has drawn early positive reviews for handling a rotation that already had significant experience in the Eastern League in 2010.


Quote:
Right-hander Armando Rodriguez is nursing an oblique strain but has resumed throwing. He could open his season in four or five weeks. Rodriguez, 23, went 8-9 with a 3.08 ERA in 27 starts with Savannah last season. … Right-hander Jimmy Fuller will miss the season following shoulder surgery. A 21st-round pick in 2008, Fuller went a combined 11-5 with a 2.19 ERA in 24 starts for Savannah and St. Lucie last season.


And one for MJ:
Quote:
..infielder Luis Hernandez should be activated days later .. He is expected to assume the primary second-base role for the Bisons at Justin Turner’s expense.

In a barren desert of lazy and loud sportsjournalism, Rubin is an oasis.

I wonder how much Justin Turner's arch nemesis is paying the Mets to screw with him every single day since the day they traded for him.

I posted this in today's minor leagu thread, but I thought I would post it here, too.....


I have a minor league question and am not sure where to put it. So I'll put it here...

Why is a "non-prospect" like Jason Pridie leading off for Buffalo when a "prospect" like Ruben Tejada is hitting down int he order. There is a very real chance that Reyes will not return to the Mets in 2012. I know Tejada is non really leadoff caliber or an OBP machine, but if the guy might possibly repalce Jose next year, are we really going to take anywhere between 80-100 ABs from him this year so Jason Pridie (who isn't even hitting over the Mendoza line anyway) can lead off? And that goes for any player of prospect-status at any level. It just seems stupid to me to have non-prospects hitting up in the order, taking ABs away from kids that need the playing time.

Thoughts?

Rubin does a great job with everything especially the minor league stuff but he needs to fix the format on the notes section. It's hard on the eyes when all that information is bunched together.

What is the logic of Luis Hernandez starting ahead of Justin Turner? Please?

Anyone?
