- The Scranton/Wilkes Barre Yankees had their game in Syracuse suspended by rain in the fifth inning yesterday, and will be finished on Saturday. In the meantime, SWB will head to Buffalo to take on the Bisons today in the Mets’ Triple-A affiliate’s home opener, and top Yankees prospect Dellin Betances will face off against top Mets prospect Jeurys Familia.
- Outfielder Zoilo Almonte went 2-for-4 with a run scored for Double-A Trenton, but the Thunder committed four errors and lost 7-1 to the Portland Sea Dogs.
- Right fielder Rob Segedin went 3-for-3 with a double and a run scored in High-A Tampa’s 5-4 win over Clearwater. Catcher JR Murphy, a top 10 prospect, also went 1-for-4, while reliever Mark Montgomery struck out three of the four batters he faced to pick up his first save.
- Low-A Charleston has one of the most prospect-laden lineups in all of the minor leagues, but that didn’t keep the RiverDogs from being shutout, 2-0, by Augusta. They only managed four singles for the game, including one for center fielder Mason Williams and right fielder Tyler Austin.
- After a rough first outing, right-hander Matt Harvey bounced back in a big way for Triple-A Buffalo. He allowed two runs on seven hits in five innings, striking out four and walking one while picking up a no-decision in Buffalo’s 5-3 loss to Rochester.
- Third baseman Jefry Marte singled once in three at-bats for Double-A Binghamton, which wound up on the wrong end of a 6-1 loss to Erie. Former top prospect Brad Holt, meanwhile, threw one inning of relief and gave up two runs on two hits with two strikeouts and two walks.
- Outfielder Cory Vaughn went 2-for-4 with a double, a RBI and a run scored in a 6-2 win over Charlotte. Former top prospect Wilmer Flores, meanwhile, went 2-for-3 upping his average to .143 (3-for-21) through five games.
- The Mets second-round pick in 2012, Michael Fulmer, made his season debut yesterday for Low-A Savannah. Fulmer allowed two runs on three hits in 4.2 innings, striking out four, walking two and picking up the loss in a 3-1 win for Rome. On the other side of the ball, third baseman Aderlin Rodriguez went 1-for-3 with a double.
