As of 9:00am EST today, here are today’s Mets minor league starting pitchers:
New Orleans Zephyrs @ Las Vegas 51s, 10:05pm EST
TBD vs. Jacob deGrom (4-2, 4.02 ERA)
deGrom bounced back from two subpar showings to pitch well in his last time out. Jacob went 6.1 innings without allowing a run. He sat down six hitters via the strikeout while walking just won. For his efforts he received the win, bringing his mark with Las Vegas to 4-2 on the season. He looks to keep it going against New Orleans.
Binghamton Mets @ Reading Fightin’ Phils, 7:05pm EST
Goeddel takes the bump in what figures to be a very good pitching matchup. Erik finds himself matched up against Reading’s ace, and one of the better pitching prospects in baseball in Jesse Biddle. Goeddel hasn’t allowed an earned run in either of his past two starts, for a total of 12.1 scoreless innings. He’s struck out 10 batters and walked four in that same span.
Fort Myers Miracle @ St. Lucie Mets, 6:30pm EST
TBD vs Rainy Lara (4-4, 3.13 ERA)
Since being promoted, Lara has continued to pitch well and exhibit the excellent command he displayed in Savannah. However Lara is coming off of his worst start since his promotion– allowing four runs in seven innings. In typical Lara fashion he made the hitters earn it, as he walked just one batter. He looks to get back on track against a Fort Myers team that is 3-7 in their last 10 games.
Savannah Sand Gnats @ Rome Braves, 7:00pm EST
Rising pitching prospect (and favorite of our own Satish Ram) Gabriel Ynoa will look to continue his impressive season against the Rome Braves. Ynoa was brilliant in his last start, going 6.2 scoreless innings without surrendering a walk. He also struck out five batters. Gabriel has won seven of his last ten starts.
Princeton Rays @ Kingsport Mets, 5:00pm EST (Doubleheader)
Last nights contest was postponed due to rain. The pitching probables are not yet known, but I assume yesterday’s scheduled starter Martires Arias (1-5, 7.41 ERA) will start one of the games.
GCL Marlins @ GCL Mets, 12:00pm EST
The Mets play the second game of a home and home series against the Marlins. The probable starters haven’t been announced yet.
