Professio”Nole” Athlete of the Week: Jayce Boyd

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...

2014 Mets Top Prospects: No. 19 Jayce Boyd, 1B

19. Jayce Boyd Height: 6’3” Weight: 185 lbs. Age: 23 Bats/Throws: Right/Right 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...

Jayce Boyd Is Now Menacing Florida State League Pitching

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...

Prospect Spotlight: Jayce Boyd Leads League In Batting and On-Base

Kevin Plawecki, Jayce Boyd, and age appropriateness

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...

Boyd Bringing A Steady Approach

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.

AAA: 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.
