With the US up 6-4, he entered to face the Padres' Reymond Fuentes and threw: a fastball low at 94, a fastball outside at 95 and a fastball down at 93 that produced a 3-1 groundout to end the game. That's it.
The 20-year Fuentes was one of the major pieces in the Red Sox deal with the Padres for Adrian Gonzalez. He's a burner hitting .287/.359/.349 with 34 steals in 44 chances in the California League. More on Fuentes here at Scoutingthesally.com.
Jefry Marte saw one more pitch than Harvey threw in a short day for the Mets' farm hands. Marte struck out in his one at-bat against the Phillies Jared Cosart, who was very, very impressive. Marts' AB: foul on a 96 mph fastball, foul on a 97 mph fastball, foul on a 96 mph fastball, and a swing and a miss on a dirty 76 mph hammer curveball.
We don't know more about these guys after one at-bat for each in the game than we did going in. I hope they had fun soaking up the sights and sounds of the game and picking up some swag along the way.
Actually, Harvey told Anthony DiComo, that's exactly what he did, "Walking in here was pretty eye-opening. I'm trying to take it in as much as I can."
Back to the grind for Harvey and Marte this week.
By the way, how cool was it to see Mike Piazza in a Mets hat again?
