Greg Peavey

Lets meet the pitchers the Mets sent to the Arizona Fall League this year.

Teams can use the AFL for a number of reasons including as:?finishing school for top prospects, preparation for the transition to a higher level, either AA or AAA, as extra-playing time for a guy who was injured during the season or as an extra audition for a spot on the team?s 40-man roster.

I covered the position players in some depth here?when the rosters were announced, but seem to have skipped the pitchers. ?Anyway, the four pitchers are RHP Ryan Fraser, LHP Chase Huchingson, LHP Adam Kolarek and RHP Greg Peavey. None of the quartet made my Mets' preseason Top 41 Prospects list, and all are longshots to make this year's list.

AA: @ Binghamton Mets 8, Erie SeaWolves 0

The man who I dubbed as the "Most Interesting Assignment" to AA,?Greg Peavey?had a really, really nice AA debut (5.2 IP, 2 H, 0 R, 0 BB, 5 K) on a night when every player in the B-Mets lineup had at least one hit.

3B Jefry Marte led the way: 3-4, 2B, 2 RBI. He's off to a 5-for-13 start with two walks and just one strikeout in four games.

Friends of the blog Rising Apple did their third in a series of quick chats with RHP Greg Peavey. ?Peavey's a smart pitcher who talked repeatedly about making adjustments and improvements.

Peavey throws lots of strikes, but his command within the zone needs to be sharper as his numbers fell off significantly moving from the South Atlantic League to the Florida State League. ?Compare his work in 78 innings with Savannah to 59 innings with St. Lucie:

@ St. Lucie Mets 4, Bradenton Marauders 3 (10 innings)

With two outs in the bottom of the 10th inning, 3B Jefry Marte lined a single to right-center field to score Travis Ozga with the winning run and send St. Lucie to the Florida State League Championship Series.

The Mets trailed 2-1 going to the bottom of the sixth when LF Pedro Zapata ripped a solo home run to tie the score at 2-2. ?Zapata, who hit .292/.333/.389 during the regular season, was 3-5. ?After three home runs during the regular season, his long ball was his first since August 3.

@ Fort Myers Miracle 2, St. Lucie Mets 1?(5 innings)St. Lucie Mets @ Fort Myers Miracle - ppd by rain

I got all exciting when I saw Robbie Shields in the box score playing second base. ?Then I got worried when I saw he only had one at-bat. ?Then I realized that this was the completion of the suspended game from July 1 which Shields started before hitting the DL with a lower back problem on July 28.

St. Lucie Mets 6, @ Jupiter Hammerheads 1

Greg Peavey?pitched a complete game four-hitter to lead St. Lucie past Jupiter in Game 1 of a doubleheader. ?Peavey allowed one run while walking just one and striking out six. ?It was Peavey's best outing for St. Lucie (7 starts).

Wilmer Flores finished the night 2-4 with a double and two rbi. ?Over his last 10 games, Flores is hitting .353/.410/.647. ?He is now 4th in the FSL with 69 RBI. ?Flores will turn 20-years old on Saturday.

Tampa Bay Yankees 10, @ St. Lucie Mets 1

 

Ouch Greg Peavey: 4.2 IP, 10 H, 8 R, 7 ER, 1 BB, 4 K. ?Forget the 4.15 ERA, in 21.2 IP in St. Lucie, he's fanned 11 and walked six. The Mets offense collected but four hits. ?He's 23. ?I did not expect his transition from the South Atlantic League to the Florida State League to be so difficult.

Saturday: St. Lucie Mets 5, Jupiter Hammerheads 1Sunday: Bradenton Marauders 11, @ St. Lucie 3

 

Peavey Faces More Disciplined HittersGreg Peavey made his advanced-A debut Saturday and was ok: 5 IP, 4 R, 1 ER, 3 BB, 3 K. ?Note the three walks. ?He had one three-walk outing in the SAL on April 23. ?For me, one of the principal differences between A and advanced-A is that the hitters are more disciplined at the higher level. ?Peavey walked four batters over his final nine starts, a span of 54 innings, in the SAL!

A:?@ Savannah Sand Gnats 8, Augusta GreenJackets 1

Nice night for the Gnats as every hitter in the lineup reached base safely, seven of nine had hits, and Greg Peavey kept on rolling. ?Savannah stayed 3.5 games ahead of Greenville, who won in extra innings, with nine games to play in the first half.

It was mostly about fastball command for Peavey who got stronger as the game went on and retired the final ten batters to face him. ?To my eyes, his slider was his most effective secondary pitch, although he threw both his curve and his changeup, including a couple good ones, as well. ?His line: 6 IP, 4 H, 1 R, 1 ER, 0 BB, 6 K, 7/2 go/ao. ?Since May 1: 48 IP, 39 H, 4 BB, 40 K. ?Dude's ready for the next level.

The Mets 6th round pick out of Oregon State last June, was ordinary in April, but has been excellent in May. ?I was a little surprised that the Mets assigned the 22-year old to Savannah to start the year at all, but the way he's throwing, he won't stay in the South Atlantic League too much longer.

Mike's gone through all of the games, but I wanted to point out two of the best things from Opening Day in the Mets system.

Fernando!Fernando Martinez was 4-5 with a double and a strikeout.

I didn't watch the whole Bisons' game, but I saw the double, when he waited on a curveball and ripped it into right field.? It was an impressive piece of hitting on its own, showing strong pitch recognition and the ability to drive the pitch.? In a larger context, where pitch recognition and patience have lagged behind his pure skills, it was even better.
