NFT: Mets Minors 4/13/2018- Kelly goes HAM

DanMetroMan : 4/13/2018 7:56 am
AAA Oswalt
A+ Llanes
A Simon

Nimmo 2-4 (apparently he's dealing with a minor hand issue, was sent to a specialist earlier this week)
Kelly 3-5, HR, 2 3b (Ty gets his name in the the lights for me today... last 2 days King Kelly 7-10 3 homers, 3 triples, 1 2b, 6 rbi, 6 runs... WOW)
Evans 1-4, BB, 2 k's
Guillorme 1-5 K (oddly striking out a lot so far)
Cecchini 2-4, 2b, BB
Thompson 1-5, K, SB
Flexen 6 innings 7 hits 2 runs 1 walk 5 k's
Callahan 2 innings 2 hits 1 run 1 walk 1 k

Zanon 3-5, 3b
Gimenez 2-3 (off to a solid start)
Carpio 2-5, HR, K
Strom 1-3, BB, K, SB
Nogosek 1 inning 1 hit 0 runs 1 BB K
Blackham 2 innings 0 hits 0 runs 1 walk 2 k's (Personal favorite)

Fermin 2-6, 2b, 3b, 3 k's (K's aside he might be the "breakout" position prospect so far... extremely early, so he could end up with a .500 OPS, just "for now" he's been very solid)
Winaker 1-4, 2 k's
Brodey 3-5, BB, K
Manea 3-4, K (Awful numbers before this season but off to a hot start)
Rasquin 1-3, 2 BB, K
Cavallaro 7 innings 4 hits 1 er 1 walk 4 k's
Villines 3 perfect 5 k's (not often mentioned but he probably belongs in the second tier of RP prospects we have after Bautista/Bashlor types. Doesn't have overwhelming stuff but scouts apparently really liked him pre-draft)
Is Cavallaro

someone like Kelly could be valuable later in the year. I think Reyes is cooked, he's not really suited to be a bench player TBH, not a great pinch hitter. It took him a half a season to get rolling last year, he needs consistent playing time. A player like Kelly, who walks, puts the ball in play, would probably be better suited for that type of role than reyes. Also, if we were to consumate a trade with Miami, I might try to pry a derek dietrich from them. I think he'd be an outstanding utility player off the bench. That guy kills us.

He annoys the shit out of me. His stuff is barely good enough for HS. But he maximizes everything. And that sidearm delivery is tough. I just donít see him succeeding much, but heís already surpassed my thoughts, so what do I know.

Ty Kelly, itís hard not to root for him. When heís on the field with the other ball players. He looks like a CPA who signed up for fantasy camp and wandered over to the wrong field. Best way to describe him. But dude puts his head down and works. I think in September he will be VERY valuable. And likely get some PT before that as injury replacement. But great guy to have stashed away and work with the kids. And eventually do their taxes.

I would LOVE to find a way to add him to this team. Canít speak to current regime (since they have zero loyalty to anyone) but the previous group at the !arlins would absolutely not part with him. They liked him as a player, loved him as a person etc.
Tell me more

Non-prospect. ABQ is probably most hitter friendly park in PCL. Lucky to be above Mendoza Line in majors. Can play many positions defensively albeit poorly

Good athlete, very light on pure stuff and 23 in July. Stranger things have happened but I'm going to say no. Unless something has changed he's an upper 80's FB type. Has a kind of odd delivery so maybe you can dream his a ROOGY type but no, I think he's just an older guy doing well over 2 starts at a lower level.

I just find him fun. I don't actually think he's some great player.

I didn't want Gonzalez either but he's been too good early on to argue he's "shouldn't be" blocking Nimmo (good read however) #Mets

Longenhagen stated concerns with Alonso's weight, but some teams think he can be a league average regular at 1b.
