SPLIT SQUAD!!!! So much baseball, oh wow. It was a day of joy for Mets Baseball Fans as we watched over two games and a nice comeback from the team, especially as the prospects got to play in both games, and the Mets went DEEEP. If the player is Bolded, there is a profile on this site. You can look on the Menu at the top and look by position or team.

Starters: 

At Home:

Amed Rosario SS went 1 for 3 with a strikeout. Looked Smoooooooooooooooth in the field and showed off the range and arm. He’s struggled a bit against breaking balls in spring so far.

Tim Tebow DH 0-3, 2 K’s looking, HBP. He didn’t exactly walk on water in his spring debut, but was able to get a run home to tie the game 4-4. He waved at a 91 mile per hour fastball.

L.J. Mazzilli 3B 1 for 3, 2B. I didn’t even know whether or not LJ was still playing with the team, but he homered on Monday, and doubled today. Still showing off that power.

Away: 

Phillip Evans 3B-2B, 1 for 3, K, R. He continues his stellar play, and was moved from 3rd to 2nd base to make room for another player in this game.

Tomas Nido C 1 for 3, 2K, PB. Nido had another hit and continues his nice quiet spring.

Wuilmer Becerra DH 0 for 2, K. Becerra is likely among one of the first cuts in spring training, and he hasn’t gotten a lot of time, but he’s still fairly impressive.

Reserves:

Boston

Ricardo Cespedes CF 0 for 0, 2BB, Run. Replaced Grandy in Center and walked twice! He walked 9 times in 56 games last year at Rookie Level Kingsport. Came around to score from first on Neil Walker‘s double.

Luis Carpio 2B 1 for 1. Looking healthier this year. He had a nice infield single, but was thrown out at the plate.

Kevin Kaczmarski LF 1 for 2, played decently, and showed he can hit.

Arnaldo Berrios RF 0 for 1, K. This surprised me, it makes me wonder if they’re going to stick him in Columbia. We’ll profile him the next time around.

Matt Oberste 1B 0 for 1. We haven’t profiled yet, but we will soon.

Ali Sanchez C 0 for 1. looked great behind the plate.

Luis Guillorme SS 0 for 1. had a hard hit ball, but lined out. He’s having a great spring.

David Thompson 3B 1 for 1. Two good plays and showed off an average arm in the field. He did some nice hitting against a major league that resulted in a liner into center field.

Houston

Champ Stuart CF 0 for 1, K. As always, he struck out.

Colby Woodmansee SS 0 for 1, K. This surprised me that he was put into this game. What didn’t surprise me is him striking out. He did that a lot at Brooklyn.

Patrick Biondi LF 0 for 1. We’ll profile him soon.

Dominic Smith 1B 0 for 1. Dom had a hard liner to the second baseman. He’s had a tough spring but is often a slow starter.

Blake Tiberi 3B 1 for 1, 2B. This was another surprise as they reached into the deep minors. Tiberi is one of the guys I implore you to watch at 3rd Base this year, who may make a few strides after a bad Brooklyn outing.

John Mora PH o for 1. A player i’m not sure on the placement or whether he’s going to start. We’ll profile when we find that placement.

Gene Cone RF 0 for 1. A player I hope we see at Columbia to get some playing time with Desmond Lindsay and Ricardo Cespedes.

Colton Plaia C, did not bat. A catcher in the high minors with some defensive skills.

Peter Alonso 1B 0 for 1, K. He’s one to watch in St. Lucie. He was an early profile with some serious power.

Relief

Boston

P.J. Conlon LHP 1.2 IP, 3 H, 4 ER, 2 BB. Conlon had an uncharacteristic outing for one of the most dominant pitchers in the lower minors.

Adam Wilk LHP 1 IP, BB. Wilk had a good outing, and made a great snag with a comebacker.

Corey Taylor RHP 1 IP, 2 H, ER, BB, 2K. Corey closed down Boston in the ninth, and has been pretty effective this spring.

Houston

Logan Taylor RHP 1 IP, 3 H, 5 R, 3 ER, 2 BB, K. Taylor has been otherwise pretty good this spring.

Kevin McGowan RHP IP. He pitched a nice clean inning,

David Roseboom LHP IP, 2 H, 2 ER, 2K. Roseboom’s bid for Lefty out of the pen may be dwindling.

World Baseball Classic

Gavin Cecchini SS 0 for 4. Cecchini didn’t commit an error as the Italy Shortstop.
