@nymets945 Pill will likely not make next start because of discomfort. Need to find out more about that. He is not on the DL.

Vaughn said he felt a sensation in his arm after throwing out runner at plate. Called coming out “precautionary.” #BMets #Mets

This is a tough week to pick a winner for who is doing best in the minor league system. It comes down to three players in AA who are all deserving of the weekly MVP award.
Full Name: Rafael Montero
Birthplace: Higuerito, Dominican Republic
Height: 6′ 0″
Montero has started 4 games this young season and sports some radical numbers...
New Hampshire 5, Binghamton 2
The Binghamton Mets were kept in check by three New Hampshire Fisher Cats pitchers in a 5-2 loss on Friday night at Northeast Delta Dental Stadium.
The teams traded runs early. With two outs in the first, Ryan Schimpf laced a 1-1 pitch from Erik Goeddel over the right field wall, giving the Fisher Cats an one-run lead. Binghamton answered back in the...
BINGHAMTON, NY -- Binghamton Mets outfielder Cory Vaughn features some exciting tools, including already plus power and speed. Unfortunately, inconsistency and a flawed approach at the plate have thus far kept Vaughn from reaching his potentially lofty ceiling. He’s hoping that 2013 will be the year that he can put it all together.
Mets Minor League Roundup 4/12:
Class AAA - COLORADO SPRINGS 6, LAS VEGAS 1: Starter Carlos Torres was charged with five runs (three earned) on nine hits and three walks in three innings. Reese Havens' pinch-hit single in the fifth scored Jamie Hoffmann with Las Vegas' lone run. Josh Satin (.444) went 0-for-4 to lose a season-opening eight-game hitting streak...
Four of the Mets minor league affiliates opened up their seasons last Thursday, and with almost a week of game play in the books, it is a great time to bust out the first Who’s Hot and Who’s Not for the 2013 minor league season.
Josh Satin 1B, Las Vegas – Josh Satin has been scalding hot to begin the AAA season, with a .483 average (14-for-29) and a 1.378 OPS...
Cory Vaughn: I still like Cory Vaughn and his big-power bat but the son of Greg Vaughn has a lot of growing to do in AA this year to get into the picture as a true prospect again. He’ll be 24 in May and while that is a good pace for him to be in AA he hasn’t exactly blown the competition since 2010 in the NYP league. He DID manage a .814 OPS in Port St. Lucie and DID hit...

It took me a moment to decide who I was going to focus this week. Zack Wheeler tossed two more games, Reese Havens returned to Binghamton and made up for lost time, Wilmer Flores is still hitting and T.J. Rivera continues to try his best to make me take notice of his play in Savannah. Instead I’m going to write about Cory Vaughn… Again.
I have a pretty legit excuse. ...
