As of 9:00am EST today, here are today’s Mets minor league starting pitchers:
The 51s have today off before they begin the PCL playoffs tomorrow. They should be facing off against the Salt Lake Bees.
The B-Mets have completed their regular season schedule yesterday, and have today off before beginning their playoff run. Binghamton will send Noah Syndergaard to the mound tomorrow night to face off against the Trenton Thunder.
The Sand Gnats also have today off before they face off against the Augusta Green Jackets to begin the SAL playoffs tomorrow night.
Brooklyn Cyclones @ Tri-City Valley Cats, 6:00pm EST
The Cyclones are one Aberdeen victory away from being eliminated from playoff contention. They’ll send Gant to the mound in hopes that their season will stay alive by night’s end. His last start was a brilliant one on August 28th at home against Tri-City. He allowed just one hit, one walk, and six strikeouts in a nine-inning, complete game shutout. He’s 5-1 with a 1.50 ERA at home, but 1-2 with a 4.15 ERA on the road, and he’ll try to break that trend tonight as the visiting pitcher.
Greeneville Astros @Kingsport Mets, 7:00pm EST
A win by Greeneville last night forces a win-or-go-home match-up tonight in Kingsport. The K-Mets send Whalen to the mound in an effort to move on to the next round of the APP League playoffs. He last pitched on August 28th against Bluefield, allowing four runs on seven hits, one walk, and seven strikeouts in six innings pitched. Whalen is 1-2 at home, but owns a 2.01 ERA and .207 opponent batting average in 44.2 innings of work in front of the home crowd.
