Dan.

That AA team looks like the most fun of our minor league affiliates with Alonso and Tebow.

Older kid (26), late convert to baseball (was a golfer), very solid athlete, ALWAYS injured, has put on significant bulk over the past 1+ seasons so the low power profile may not still be accurate. Likely more of an extra player but could be on the radar as a late blooming 2b type.

keeps it up. It's hard to overstate how bad our IF has been, and if Cabrera regresses it's going to get a lot worse. Alonso and maybe if we get lucky, McNeil, could add a little juice to our IF in the second half if things go well.
Normally I would write off a 26 year old at AA

But like Dan said, he missed a lot of time. Basically, he really missed the last two years. But looks like he used that time to get stronger. He is tall, so if power is not an illusion, he might turn into a guy who can contribute

Maybe a somewhat better fielding Flores?

@MattEhalt
Mets prospect Peter Alonso with Binghamton (AA):
.355/.466/.653/1.119

Mentioned this before: Seems Mets are going to have to ultimately choose between him and Dom Smith. Seems organization is not as high on Smith as before but there's still belief he'll be a good player.

It'd be nice if one of them could bring back something in a trade.

I still think Adrian Gonzalez is going to be gone by the All-Star Game. I'd be happier to see Smith or even Alonso take the first base job than to see Bruce there. Gonzalez was never going to be more than a stopgap, and he was a big roll of the dice even as that. I hope he finds his old for, but if he doesn't, I don't see any reason to hold on to him.
Peterson with a gem tonight
