@ Buffalo Bisons 4, Lehigh Valley Iron Pigs (PHI) 2

To protest Fernando Martinez getting the call to the big leagues over him, LF/1B Nick Evans took an 0-4 with three strikeouts to snap his 19 game hitting streak. ?Again, as I pointed out yesterday, the reason Martinez got the call and not Evans is simply that Martinez is on the Mets' 40-man roster, and Evans is not.

@ Buffalo Bisons 7, Lehigh Valley 5

The Mets are pounding the ball and Nick Evans, like a toddler engaged in parallel play, is doing the same in AAA since being sent down. ?Wednesday, he was 5-5 with a double. ?He has a 19-game hitting streak in AAA, but that conveniently leaves out his 0-for-12 at the big league level from May 18-June 6. ?Since his return to AAA, he's raking at .537/.597/.815 in 14 games with nine doubles, two homers, eight walks and seven strikeouts. ?He's hitting for power, walking and not striking out. ?There's really no way a human can be any hotter over two weeks of baseball without being named Jose Reyes.

Still, this hot streak does not merit a big league return at the moment.

@ Durham Bulls (TB) 4, Buffalo Bisons 1

Jack Egbert (pictured) made his Bisons' debut a year and three months after leaving a spring training game on March 2010 for Tommy John Surgery. ?He hung on through 4.1 innings: 4 H, 3 R, 3 ER, 4 BB, 2 K, 1 HR. ?Read more about Egbert's road back?here.

Nick Evans was 2-4 with a double and a homer. ?He's hit safely in all eight games with the Bisons in June while putting up a ridiculous .516/.571/.774 (16-for-31, with five doubles).

Last night, GM Sandy Alderson told the media that the team would 1. outright SS Chin-lung Hu to Buffalo, call up SS Ruben Tejada, 2. activate Pedro Beato from the disabled list and option Ryota Igarashi, and 3. place David Wright on the disabled list Tuesday and recall Nick Evans from Buffalo.

This is all sensible stuff and the best the Mets could do under the circumstances.

AAA: Buffalo Bisons 10, @ SWB Yankees 4

The Bisons won their seventh in a row behind 3-4 efforts with a home run from both corner infielders 1B Nick Evans (pictured) and 3B Mike Cervenak.? Evans is off to a .333/.396/.583 start with six doubles and two homers in 12 games with Buffalo.? Between AA and AAA, the 24-year-old has hit .299/.369/.534 with 36 doubles and 19 homers.

CF Kirk Nieuwenhuis was 2-5 with his first AAA triple.? He's hitting .345 (10-for-29) in his first seven AAA games.

1B Nick Evans was the star for the Bisons going 2-4 with a pair of two-run doubles. The 24-year-old is off to a nice 8-for-17 (.471) start with three doubles, in his return to AAA.

SS Ruben Tejada (.284/.332/.351) was 2-4 with a double, his 11th of the year in his 63rd game in AAA.? Lucas Duda was 2-4 and RF Fernando Martinez was 0-1, but walked twice.? I'll take that from Fernando.

AAA: @ Buffalo Bisons 2, Lehigh Valley Iron Piggies 1 (10 innings)

In his third game back with Buffalo, 3B/1B Nick Evans drove home the winning run in the bottom of the tenth inning as part of a 3-5 night that included a double.

After a nasty slump, RF Fernando Martinez (.254/.312/.454) homered while going 1-2 with a walk to extend his hitting streak to five games.? You want something positive on the 21-year old Martinez? He has a .559 slugging percentage in 17 games since the AAA All-Star Break.

The 29-year old Jacobs, who began the year in the big leagues, was hitting an unimpressive .260/.313/.478 for Buffalo with 23 doubles and 15 homers.

Nick Evans has been promoted from AA to take his place in AAA.? The 24-year old was hitting .294/.366/.527 with 30 doubles and 17 homers.? He was fourth in the EL in slugging, fourth in OPS, and fourth in doubles.

AAA: Buffalo Bisons 5, @ Columbus Clippers 4

Lucas Duda's three-run home run in the first inning gave the Bisons the early jump to snap their six-game losing streak.? Duda was 2-4 as the DH and is now hitting .298/.396/.583 with 28 doubles and 18 home runs combined between AA and AAA.? Coming into this year, Duda had 24 jacks over his previous three seasons.

Bobby Livingston walked five in his four innings of work, but the Bisons bullpen held the Clippers to one run over the final five innings.? Brian Bruney (0 H, 0 BB, 0 K) and Ryota Igarashi (1 H, 1 BB, 1 K) each tossed a scoreless inning.

At ESPNNY, Adam Rubin speculated that the Mets would recall Nick Evans from AA Binghamton today to fortify their bench with some right-handed power.? The 24-year old Evans was hitting .290/.363/.518 with 24 doubles and 15 homers in 303 AB over 77 games for Binghamton.? Importantly, Evans has become more selective.

Check out Evans' last three seasons, a span of time in which he's bounced between AA, AA and the big leagues.? The money shot is contained in the last four columns of the table.

Nick Evans is an interesting story this offseason. Where does he fit in the 2010? Seems like Daniel Murphy will open the season as the Mets 1st baseman, but with Murphy's struggles vs. LHP (.223/.267/.415/.682), it would be a good idea to have a RH platoon at 1B. Assuming the Mets upgrade their power in LF and possibly 2nd base, Nick Evans could be an option as a platoon 1st baseman. While Evans 2009 season was a disaster, he still posted very good #'s against LHP. His career #'s vs. LHP have always been very good.

Here is a look at his 2009 and career #'s vs. LHP:

I'm baffled by the Jerry Manuel quotes in this article by Ryan Cloaianni at MLB.com about Nick Evans.

Here's Jerry:

"I just think we are in a situation where we are somewhat forced to bring people up probably quicker than we would have liked," Mets manager Jerry Manuel said, "and he is probably one of those guys that we probably pushed a little too early, and then when you do that it appears that his stock has fallen, but it hasn't."
Although I disagree with Manuel about Evans' stock falling, mostly because he hasn't played, I understand at least what he's trying to say there, but not here:
"It is just the fact that we are in a situation where we needed to find other people, and we preferred to have him instead of that."
So, the Mets needed to "find other people" and preferred Evans to those other people but can't find him a start in a lost season's final weeks?? What's the "that" that Manuel concludes his sentence refer to?? I'm so confused.

Yesterday, Adam Rubin of the Daily News reported that the Mets were likely to promote RHP Eddie Kunz and 1B/LF Nick Evans from AAA Buffalo and C Josh Thole (pictured) from AA Binghamton when MLB rosters expand on September 1.

I've recommended calling Thole up in September.? The Mets would have had to ad him to the team's 40-man roster in any case this off-season, so they might as well give him a chance to show what he can do in the season's final weeks. The 22-year old Thole has hit an eye-popping .332/.400/.429 in 97 games in AA.? He's fifth in the Eastern League in OBP, third in batting average and his 28 doubles tie him for 12th on the circuit.? It's an interesting question how his contact oriented approach will fare at the big league level.? I think he'll be fine.

Defensively, he's thrown out 31.% (25/79) of would-be basestealers, or fourth out of sixth qualifiying catchers.? Thole's nine passed balls are the fourth most in the EL, and he's caught the fourth-most games in the league.? Reviews of his defense have been poor all season from impartial observers.? He's improved his receiving abilities, but evaluators were still concerned about his arm.

Hopefully, David Wright makes a brisk and complete recovery from his concussion, but while he's recuperating, someone needs to play thirdbase for the New York Mets.? When the Mets placed? Wright on the Disabled List, the team purchased the contract of 32-year old IF Andy Green (pictured) from AAA Buffalo.? The move was met with scorn and derision both in the comments section here and my email inbox.

It seems likely, that as he did on Sunday, Fernando Tatis will get the bulk of the playing time at? 3B in Wright's absence.? Green, who was hitting .270/.333/.410 with AAA Buffalo, while playing at second and third, and even a few innings in RF, will serve as the backup infielder.

What about Daniel Murphy?? And what about Nick Evans? And Shawn Bowman?

Mets 1B-OF Nick Evans is 3–for-7 with two extra base hits, four RBI and two runs scored in the three games since being promoted from Double-A.

Jerry Manuel, regarding Evans, said:

“He has that type of bat, that type of life when he’s right… You know, he was very close to making the team out of spring training… I have to play him every day, if he keeps hitting he keeps playing.”

Last night, Nick Evans returned to the starting lineup, hit a home run and drove in two runs and scored two runs.

…this will be interesting to watch, in that Daniel Murphy had been looking better at the plate, as well… evans had been playing the outfield in Double-A, so perhaps he ends up in a corner if Gary Sheffield ends up missing more time… or, perhaps evans leapfrogs Fernando Tatis in the pecking order, since tatis cannot stop hitting in to double plays… jeeez, man… or, maybe murphy is out of luck… or, maybe it’s time to send down Fernando Martinez…

Martinez is hitting .174 in 69 at bats this season, but just .095 in his last seven games.

This morning, at Mets Minor League Blog, Toby Hyde recaps all of yesterday’s Mets minor-league action, including strong performances by Jenrry Mejia, who allowed one run on six hits in a win for Single-A St. Lucie; as well as Nick Evans, who stole home for Double-A Binghamton.

In nine starts for Single-A this season, the 19–year-old Mejia is 4–1 with a 1.97 ERA in 50 innings, during which he has 44 strike outs.

Meanwhile, Evans is batting .200 in 10 games since joining Binghamton.

Earlier I took a look at who's off to a fast start and, unfortunately, here's a list of players who wishes that was them:
  • OF Nick Evans, Bisons (pictured): After having a great spring, he's hitting just .122 to start the season (5-for-41) with 13 strikeouts.
  • LHP Jonathan Niese, Bisons: It's been a nightmarish start for Niese, who has now allowed 22 hits and 12 earned runs in his first two starts spanning 12.1 innings.
  • SS Ruben Tejada, B-Mets: Although he had two hits yesterday, it's been rough early on for the nineteen-year-old at the plate. He's hitting .194 (6-for-31) with a .324 OBP and .226 SLG.
  • RHP Jose Sanchez, B-Mets: He got rocked in Saturday's start against Portland, getting knocked around for ten hits and nine earned runs.
  • 1B Ike Davis, St. Lucie: After having multi-hit games on the 15th and 16th, the first-basemen is now 3 for his last 19 with six strikeouts.
  • RHP Wendy Rosa, Savannah: The SAL is giving the reliever fits. He gave up 8 runs in 11 innings last year for the Gnats and has surrendered 5 runs and 5 walks in 4.2 innings so far in 2009.

SWB Yankees 8, @ Buffalo Bisons 7

Behind two homeruns from 1B Nick Evans, the Bisons took a 6-3 lead into the seventh inning, but the bullpen of Connor Robertson, Jon Switzer and then Elmer Dessens couldn't hold off the late-charging Yanks.

Nelson Figueroa was pulled after two innings and 32 pitches.? He allowed three runs on two hits, both homers.? Figueroa is certainly an option for Mike Pelfrey's start Sunday.? Pitching on two days rest after such a short outing would be nearly equivalent to a pitcher's side session in a normal five-day program.

DH Fernando Martinez led off the bottom of the fifteenth inning with a walk and the next batter, 1B?Nick Evans, promptly?deposited a two-run homer over the center field fence at Coca Cola Field as the Buffalo Bisons defeated the Pawtucket Red Sox 4-2 Sunday afternoon.? The homerun was Evans' first hit of the season.

LHP Casey Fossum took the start and threw five shutout innings, allowing two hits and two walks while fanning three. Pawtucket got two runs off of RHP Kyle Snyder, one unearned. RHP Carlos Muniz, LHP Ken Takahashi, and RHP Eddie Kunz (W, 1-0) combined for seven innings of two hit ball the rest of the way.

Buffalo's first two runs came via RF Bobby Kielty's RBI single in the bottom of the first and CF Cory Sullivan's RBI double in the fourth. The only Bison with two hits was LF Jesus Feliciano (2-for-6, 2B, R).

The Mets optioned Nick Evans to Triple-A Buffalo today to make room on the 25–man roster for OF Gary Sheffield.

evans was only going to be on the roster for a few days anyway, as he would have been optioned down to make room for Livan Hernandez, when a fifth starter is first needed…

…the real question is Saturday, April 11, when livan is needed: will the Mets cut ties with Marlon Anderson, maybe Jeremy Reed, though i doubt it, or will they reduce a spot in the bullpen, like Darren O’Day…

  • Jerry Manuel believes that if OF Nick Evans can increase his versatility than it's perfectly justifiable for him to make the team, writes David Lennon in Newsday. He added a triple and scored the only run in yesterday's 12-1 loss to the Braves.
  • Over at the New York Post, Bart Hubbuch says the Mets are leaning towards going with RHP Bobby Parnell in the bullpen because he can pitch effectively to righties and lefties.

Tuesday, in the Mets 5-5 tie with Washington, Nick Evans was 2-4, with a 2B, 3B, BB, and an RBI.? Each of his last three hits have gone for extra bases including his slam on Monday.? That modest power boost has raised his slugging percentage nearly .300 points in five AB.? Yay for small sample sizes (Yfss).? However, since the Mets released Duaner Sanchez, Marty Noble suggests that the team is likely to carry seven relievers and just five bench players in which case Evans would be Buffalo bound.

2B Greg Veloz was 0-2.? He is 0-5 this spring.

C Josh Thole was 1-1 with two walks.? This spring he's drawn three walks and fanned just once, while singling thrice in six AB.? That adds up to a .667 OBP.? (Yfsss)

In their first game of the Grapefruit League season this afternoon, the Mets defeated the Orioles 9-3 in Fort Lauderdale.

Nick Evans played first and went 3-for-4 in the victory. In his blog for the New York Post, Bart Hubbuch writes that Mets manager Jerry Manuel was happy with Evans' lone out, a groundout to second in the fifth inning that allowed Alex Cora to move over to third.

It was one those "little" fudamental plays that the Mets' skipper has been preaching constantly throughout the opening days of camp. "That's how we have to play," Manuel was quoted as saying.

The Mets have named Daniel Murphy and Nick Evans co–players of the year for their minor-league organization.

Jon Niese was named the organization's pitcher of the year.

For more, including who won the award for each specific level in the minor leagues, such as Mike Carp, who received the award for Double-A Binghamton of the Eastern League, click here.

Speaking of Carp, in a recent post to Baseball Prospectus, prospect guru Kevin Goldstein listed Carp second to Murphy when ranking players who took a ‘great leap forward,’ while writing, “He still struggles against good left-handers, and scouts are hoping for even more power, as it’s a tough road to come up as a first-baseman without it.”

Daniel Murphy hit .308/.374/.496 at Double-A Binghamton and has been one of many pleasant surprises filling in for an injured Moises Alou in left field, batting .357/.444/.536 in 34 big-league games while being used only against righties.

Prior to today’s game, Jerry Manuel told reporters that he will begin using Ryan Church every day in right field, meaning Daniel Murphy, Fernando Tatis and Nick Evans will split time in left.

Tonight, Tatis will start in left field, instead of Evans, against LHP Jaime Moyer, because, according to Manuel, Tatis is better suited to face the ‘crafty,’ veteran.

…in other words, while murphy will most certainly play every day against right-handed pitchers, against whom he is batting .321, manuel will consider the night’s left-handed starting pitcher when debating evans, who is batting .340 against lefties, and tatis, who is batting .316 against lefties
