Cory Vaughn

This group of four Mets prospects are all likely to get to the big leagues, but are unlikely to ever be average regulars. Instead, if they make it, it will be in part-time roles, or as middle relievers. All four are 2010 or 2011 college draftees so it's time for them to produce in the big leagues. All have dealt with injuries on their way through the minors.

Middle infield prospect Danny Muno?and outfielder Cory Vaughn have both been invited to big league camp.

Muno, 24, spent 2013 with Double-A Binghamton, where he hit .249 with a .384 OBP.?He connected for 27 doubles, nine home runs and had 67 RBI. Muno has seen time at both second base and shortstop, playing the majority of his season at second with the B-Mets last season.

Muno was suspended 50 games in 2012 for testing positive for a metabolite of Drostanolone.

I wanted to point out the video above for Cory Vaughn's swings. In particular, take a look at the swings from the angle just outside the cage.

Watch the end of Vaughn's swings. He cuts his hands off. It's very apparent from the 0:58 mark through 1:18 or so. It appears to me as though he's stopping his hands early. In doing so, rather than accelerating through the ball which will give him more power to drive the thing, he's decelerating early, and sapping power.

As a 24-year-old, Vaughn hit .267/.346/.424 in 71 games in AA. An elbow strain kept him out of the AA lineup from June 2 through August 6.

I no longer view Vaughn as a potential everyday contributor for the Mets. The move to AA really exposed him. His strikeout rate of 26.5% in AA this year was his highest at any minor league stop, while his walk rate of 8.2% was his lowest. His .156 isolated slugging percentage was his lowest since Savannah and his 6.8% extra-base hit rate exceeded only Savannah (6.7%), and even at that by only one tenth of a percentage point. For reference, the Eastern League had an extra-base hit rate of 7.2%, a strikeout rate of 20.1% and a walk rate of 9%. So, Vaughn hit for below average power, walked at a below average rate and struck out way above AA average. His season line looks better thanks to a .345 batting average on balls in play, his best rate since Savannah, and one he seems unlikely to replicate with consistency against upper level competition.

AA: @ Binghamton Mets 7, Akron Aeros (CLE) 3?

Double-A is the first level where the baseball really starts to look like the big leagues sometimes. And often it does not. Such was the case in the?eighth?inning on Tuesday when the B-Mets scored four times on four walks, two infield singles, a passed ball and a wild pitch.

On the offensive side, LF Cory Vaughn (.299/.387/.485 - 27 gms)?was 2-for-4 with two runs, an RBI and a strikeout. One of the hits was a grounder to short in the B-Mets big eighth inning. Vaughn's making a run at .300 and is hitting .313/.436/.469 in his last 10 games. The 24-year-old still an extreme platoon split guy 1.321 OPS versus LHP in 24 AB and .723 vs. RHP in 73 AB. His overall line is supported by a .365 BABIP after back-to-back years in advanced-A of .247 and .274 BABIPs. My opinion on Vaughn has not changed: he could have big league value as a platoon outfielder/pinch-hitter, but he's not an everyday guy.

AA: @ New Hampshire Fisher Cats 5, Binghamton Mets 2?

Erik Goeddel was hittable on a night when the wind was blowing 20 mph out to left field if the box score is accurate. Goeddel's line: 4.1 IP, 8 H, 5 R, 5 ER, 1 BB, 4 K, 2 HR. He was in the strike zone plenty, throwing 65% of his pitches (57 of 88) for strikes, but he was hurt in the zone. Versus his 2012 performance in advanced-A St. Lucie, his strikeout rate is up a little, his walk rate is down a little, but he's been hurt on contact. His BABIP has risen from .334 a year ago to .375 this year and his opponents' isolated slugging is up from .079 to .160. In part, this is a reflection of allowing two homers in a game Friday - half the number he allowed in 22 games in 2012 at a point in the season where everything is still subject to small sample size warnings. But you know, that happened.

The B-Mets had six hits, no one had more than one, and five of the six were singles. RF Cory Vaughn (pictured)?did hit his second homer of the year. The soon-to-be 24-year-old is hitting .277/.358/.489 in his first 13 games in AA.

AA: Binghamton Mets 4, @ New Hampshire Fisher Cats (TOR) 3?

The B-Mets scored three times in the top of the sixth to come up with the win. 2B Danny Muno doubled home two runs to tie the game, and then CF Alonzo Harris doubled home Muno. ?Muno was 2-for-3 with a walk, his 10th (!) in 13 games to push his season line to .167/.340/.238. Three of his seven hits have been doubles.

LF Cory Vaughn added a couple of hits to take him up to .279/.367/.442. Vaughn will turn 24 on May 1, and has struck out 16 times in 12 games. At the moment, he's running a .423 BABIP, so either he will strike out less, or his average will come down.

Lets get right to it. The Binghamton Mets equaled a club record, originally set in 1994, with an 11-run fourth inning.

AAA: Las Vegas 51s 6, @ Sacramento RiverCats (OAK) 1?

Collin McHugh was sharp to help the 51s improve to 3-0. McHugh's line: 5.1 IP, 4 H, 1 R, 1 ER, 1 BB, 7 K. He threw 60% of his pitches for strikes (56 of 93).

Offensively, the big names (Juan Lagares, Travis d'Arnaud and Wilmer Flores) were all o-for. Instead, the offense came from SS Brian Bixler (2B, 3B), DH Andrew Brown (3-for-4), Josh Satin (HR, 2 RBI) and Jamie Hoffman (3-for-3, BB). I got the feeling that Terry Collins really likes Hoffman during spring training. If the Mets' outfield is unproductive, he'd be on Collins' replacements list.

RF Cesar Puello ?(.257/.325/.424)?was 1-for-3 with a homer in game one. He played rightfield in both games, while Darrell Ceciliani roamed in center in game one and Alonzo Harris did the same in game two.

LF Cory Vaughn?(pictured) was 2-for-3 with a double (his 22nd), a homer (his 23rd) and a stolen base, (his 21st) in game one and doubled and walked in game two. ?Vaughn is tied for the FSL homerun lead with Marlins OF Marzel Ozuna, who won game one with a walkoff off Adam Kolarek in the bottom of the seventh. Ozuna might be a better prospect simply because as a 21-year old who won't turn 22 until November, he's a year and a half ?younger than Vaughn, who turned 23 this year. ?After a .222/.330/.430 line in 61 games in the first half, Vaughn is up to .269/.382/.510 in 60 games in the second half as he's cut his strikeouts from 60 to 50. He has a significant platoon split as he's run a .922 OPS versus lefties and a .773 OPS versus right-handed pitching. Before you get excited about the next Scott Hairston, remember that he plays center and Vaughn doesn't.

Jacob deGrom was ok, but not great: 5.2 IP, 6 H, 3 R, 3 ER, 1 BB, 3 K

RF Cory Vaughn was 1-for-3 with a homer, his 22nd of the year, and a walk. I'm a broken record on Vaughn: the power (21 2B, 22 HR) and the speed (19 of 22 stealing bases are great), but the .243 batting average at age 23 in the FSL is scary. The physical tools are there, but scouts as one scout gently put it, the swing is "complicated."

Lets take a look at what's going on in the St. Lucie, in the advanced-A outfield.

Three of the four guys getting regular playing time, CF/RF Cesar Puello (#6), RF Cory Vaughn (#32) and LF Travis Taijeron (#40) appeared on my pre-season Top 41 prospects list, while the most productive perhaps is CF/LF Alonzo Harris, who was unranked this year. Harris topped out on my list at #26 in 2010, but that was a postion ago, back when he was playing second base.

RF Cory Vaughn continued his big July: 2-for-4 with a double and a walk. The 23-year old is hitting .340/.431/.620 with nine extra-base hits and six walks in 14 games in July, but is still hitting just .242/.347/.462 for the year.

A+: Bradenton Marauders (PIT) 6, @ St. Lucie Mets 3?

So this is one of the weeks where RF Cory Vaughn hits, huh? The RF was 2-4, with a double and a homer. In seven games in July, he's bopping along at .357/.400/.714 with two doubles, a triple and two homers. This recent surge comes on the heels of a .192/.340/.397 June. Overall, the now 23-year old outfielder is hitting .236/.337/.459. For corner outfielders, it really is primarily about the bat. His 16 homeruns in the Florida State League - tied for the League lead - demand attention, but his .236 average is fairly damning. Can he put together a big finish to earn his way to Binghamton?

The Miracle scored five times in the first against RHP Yohan Almonte and were never threatened in this one. Almonte's line: 2.1 IP, 7 H, 7 R, 6 ER, 2 BB, 2 K.

RF Cory Vaughn was 2-for-5 and lifted his 13th home run of the year. He hits for power (24 XBH, .217 isolated slugging), walks (32), and strikes out (60) times in 62 games, but has not hit for average as part of a .226/.331/.443 line as a 23 year old in advanced-A.

On Friday, Baseball America put Cory Vaughn at #2 on their weekly Prospect Hot Sheet. He crushed the ball hitting .367/.424/.900 with a double and five homers last week. When the Hot Sheet came out, he was hitting .293/.381/.587 in 24 games.

With one hit over the weekend, in 11 at-bats, he's "down" to .272/.359/.563. His eight home runs still lead the FSL. Vaughn is well ahead of last year's power pace when he hit 13 home runs combined between Savannah and St. Lucie, nine of which came during the second half in the FSL. Even if some of those balls stop going over the wall, his extra-base hit rate is up overall from 7.1% in 2011 to 12% in 2012.

It's an encouraging start for the 23-year old, but he might never reach his father's glory. As BA points out, "He's got a chance, but keep in mind that his father Greg, a four-time all-star, already had reached Milwaukee by the time he was 23."

A+: Jupiter Hammerheads 6, @ St. Lucie Mets 1

Lets start with the dude who's smoking hot: RF Cory Vaughn who homered for the fifth time in seven games. Vaughn, who was 1-for-4, is hitting .293/.381/.587 overall. He's leading the Florida State League in homers (7) and is second in slugging, tied for second in extra-base hits (13).

3B Wilmer Flores was 1-for-3 with a walk, his fifth of the season. The 20-year old is hitting .316/.343/.495 in 26 games with a walk rate (4.6%) that is nearly a dead ringer for last year (4.8%). The difference between this year and last year? He's stopped striking out, with just seven strikeouts, he's whiffed in 6.5% of his plate appearances, and hitting for more power as his extra-base hit rate has ticked up (from 6.6 to 8.3%) while his HR rate has more than doubled (from 1.6 to 3.7%).

The St. Lucie Mets were on fire in May. The team finished at 20-4, the best record in minor league baseball, and the best record for a St. Lucie Mets team in any month in their history.

(All further stats include the team's blowout win on May 1.)

As a team, St. Lucie currently leads the FSL in home runs (19) and doubles (57) and slugging (.413). In fact, the Mets are the only team in the FSL slugging over .390. The team is second in the FSL in runs scored (118) while hitting .265/.332/.413 overall.

The St. Lucie offense is just rolling, pounding out 10 runs on 15 hits. The latest addition was rehabbing CF Andres Torres who was 3-for-4 with two runs scored and an RBI. He played six innings defensively. With the news that Jason Bay has bruised ribs, Torres' return would give the Mets more options if Bay needs to miss time. For example, Kirk Nieuwenhuis could slide to a corner, and with Torres in center, the Mets' outfield defensive should measurably improve.

DJ Carrasco threw a scoreless inning with a strikeout to begin the ballgame in his first rehab appearance.

We're two weeks into 2012, so keeping in mind that it's still really early, we'll take a look at some of the big picture things going on at each affiliate.

St. Lucie is third in the Florida State League in scoring averaging exactly four runs per game on a batting line of .242/.329/.369 in 12 games. The team FSL Mets are third in in walks and tops in stolen bases (17) and stolen base percentage 89% (17 of 19).

The team's pitching leads the FSL in ERA (1.74) and is tied for the fewest walks allowed 27 and 2.24 BB/9.

Ho hum just another quality performance from Darin Gorski. Seriously folks this is just ridiculous how good Gorksi has been. Gorski allowed just one run over six innings of work lowering his already FSL leading ERA to a microscopic 1.56. I can hear Wally Backman banging his head on his desk right now screaming: "We want Gorski!!"

After the Mets' affiliates clinched first half titles in the South Atlantic League in Savannah and in the Florida State League in St. Lucie, the team began systematically promoting players. ?For example, the Mets promoted one outfielder and one right-hander - Matt den Dekker and Matt Harvey - from St. Lucie to AA and replaced them with an outfielder - Cory Vaughn (pictured) and Greg Peavey - from Savannah. ?All four players deserved promotions.

In fact, the outfielders' short-term performance in the weeks leading up to their promotions, and those of their peers seem to have relatively little to do with these moves. Is that really the case?

The 23-year old den Dekker was hitting .296/.362/.494 in 67 games for St. Lucie. ?In the case of den Dekker, we've been over these splits before, but in April, he was completely batting average and BABIP driven. ?Every month afterward, he increased his walk rate, which is excellent. ?This, however came at a cost of an increasing strikeout rate, up to 25% in June. ?However, his extra-base hits turned into homers in June which is cool.

Vaughn to SavannahApparently, Cory Vaughn will be a Savannah Sand Gnat to begin 2011.? Or so he told twitter:

Color me pretty surprised if this does indeed come to pass.? It's not just that he mashed at a .307/.396/.557 rate for Brooklyn with 14 bombs in 72 games last year.? He'll be 22 on May 1.? That's on the older side for a top prospect in the SAL.? He's a physically developed, experienced college hitter who I would think would be up to the challenge of the Florida State League.? Keep in mind however, that we're 12 days from final roster decisions, so things could change, despite one man's tweets.
