Jayce Boyd finally got that long waited promotion to Advanced-A, right after the SAL All Star Game as I had speculated. But don’t think for a moment that the better class of pitching has slowed him down any… It hasn’t.
The right-handed first-bagger has a four game hitting streak and has nine hits in his first 17 FSL at-bats with a home run on Sunday and five RBIs in his first week.
Before his promotion to Advanced-A St. Lucie, Boyd was among the top ten in many offensive categories the South Atlantic League:
.361 Batting Average (1st)
.441 On-Base Percentage (1st)
46 RBIs (9th)
123 Total Bases (9th)
35 Walks (8th)
Matt Musico, the executive editor for Mets.Minors.net, wrote the following about Boyd last week shortly before his promotion:
Jayce Boyd was a sixth-round draft pick by the New York Mets in last year’s MLB Draft, and has certainly made people within the organization take notice with his performance with the Savannah Sand Gnats through 62 games this season.
