Mets Minor League Recap: Black Blows Lead, Cecchini Homers

  Salt Lake 5, Las Vegas (41-32) 4 Las Vegas was clinging to a 4-2 lead heading into the bottom of the 8th inning when Vic Black was brought in for the 2nd straight night but was not as successful this time giving up a 3-run homerun to C.J. Cron that turned out to be the game winner. Seems very curious to pitch someone back-to-back days after not having pitched in 15 days. The...

Vic Black and Eric Goedell Not Close to Returning

Will Vic Black be the Mets closer by season’s end?

The 2014 season didn’t get off to a fast start for Vic Black.  In ten spring training appearances, Black pitched to a 5.79 ERA and 2.46 WHIP in 9.1 IP, a showing that promptly had him demoted to minor league camp much earlier than anyone could have expected.  Fans and upper management envisioned Black as a key component to this year’s bullpen, but with his setback in spring...

Is Vic Black the Mets’ primary setup man?

Vic Black is an intriguing character. When the Mets received him as the Player to be Named Later from the Marlon Byrd/John Buck trade, he immediately stepped into the New York bullpen where he put up a 3.46 ERA in 13 IP, struck out 12 and walked only 4. It was a nice sign from a guy who had an average fastball velocity of 95.5, and who can ratchet that up when needed. He appears...
