Toby Hyde of Mets Minor League Blog continues his road trip through the Mets Minor League system with a stop in Port St. Lucie, and a look at pitching prospect Nick Carr.

Hyde on Carr:

"Carr has one superlative quality: he throws hard. Saturday night when I saw him, he touched 95 mph and sat at 92, 93 mph. However, a live arm alone is not enough to make a big league pitcher. And in fact, the movement on his fastball is inconsistent; Saturday, it showed fine armside run, but Carr is aware that in that regard, he must learn to command the pitch to where “if it’s moving, it’s moving all the time."
Toby, who will be in Binghamton this week, is doing a terrific job providing in-depth information about the teams and players on his minor league road trip, which you can follow, by checking out
