JAYCE BOYD RUMORS & GOSSIP
The Professio”Nole” Athlete of the week for the week of July 7th through the 13th goes to minor league first baseman Jayce Boyd. Though Boyd was not invited to the MLB Futures Game like his former teammate, James Ramsey, it was a stellar week for the Mets’ farm-hand.
In four games this week for the Double-A Binghamton Mets, Boyd batted .500, going 7-for-14 at the plate. Over...
19. Jayce Boyd
Weight: 185 lbs.
I don’t think Jayce Boyd receives enough credit as a prospect. You won’t find him high on many top prospect lists because as a first baseman, he struggles to hit for much power. What he can do, however, is simply hit.
Drafted by the Mets in the 6th round of the 2012 draft out of FSU, Boyd went straight...
Two interesting tidbits of information about some prospects that I haven’t heard too much about myself recently came out in Adam Rubin’s Farm Report this morning. Check it out:
Jayce Boyd, who is hitting a combined .334 between Savannah and St. Lucie this season, exclusively has served as DH since June 29 with the Florida State League club. Boyd, a first baseman drafted in the...
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...
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.
After signing with New York, the Florida State University product joined the Cyclones in Brooklyn for 54 games and 201 at-bats. He put together decent...
The Savannah Sand Gnats trio of Kevin Plawecki, Jayce Boyd, and Brandon Nimmo has been on the lips of Mets prospect watchers all season long and with good reason. These players are absolutely mashing right now, but analyses of their performances are generally accompanied by certain caveats. The primary caveat with Plawecki and Boyd is that they are a bit old for the South Atlantic...
Savannah Sand Gnats' first basemen Jayce Boyd is off to a fast start this year after an up and down season with the Brooklyn Cyclones last year. Slow and steady is the motto of the turtle that won the race in the famous children’s story. In the offseason Boyd wanted to work on having a steady approach at the plate, and right now Boyd is the turtle making his way to the finish line.
Savannah 7, Augusta 2
Luis Cessa, in his first start of the year, held the Augusta Green Jackets in check into the seventh inning to help the Savannah Sand Gnats earn a 7-2 win Tuesday night at Historic Grayson Stadium. Cessa, who worked six and two thirds innings, became the first Savannah starter to pitch into the seventh inning in 2013.
The Gnats (3-3) broke a 1-1 tie with a single...
Travis d’Arnaud: 3 Games –In only 8 at bats he has 6 Runs scored, 3 hits (two of them doubles) 6 walks and a 2:1 BB:K ratio. All of that is good. MVP
Josh Satin: 4 Games – Through 17 at bats Satin is hitting .412 with a homer and a double. He’s striking out a bit more than usual but I expect that to change.
Andrew Brown: 4 Games – Brown has had 1# ABs and managed...
