Mets winter league update

The Mets have 26 players playing winter ball this year and a couple of players are turning some heads with the numbers they are putting up. Victor Diaz is hitting 377 in 61 at bats, however he has only walked once, and he has struck out 11 times while only bashing one home run. Anderson Hernandez won the rookie of the year award and has a .303 batting average along with a .389 OBP. One the downside the Mets second best hitting prospect, Carlos Gomez, does not have a hit yet in 9 at bats. On the pitching side of things Victor Zambrano has a 3.07 era in 14.2 innings pitched. He also has struck out 15 batters which is good for a 9.2 SO/9 ratio. Alay Soler is also continuing to impress with a 2.61 era in 31 innings pitched, pitching both in the rotation and out of the bullpen. Also of note is Aaron Heilman and Heath Bell both with era's under 3 (2.36 and 2.77 respectivley). One of the Mets spring training invitees, Jose Parra, has not given up a run in 8.1 innings pitched. Lastly, of the Mets prospects Henry Owens has put up very impressive numbers. He has struck out 36 batters in 23.2 innings and leads all Mets pitchers with a 13.7 SO/9 ratio.

  • reports that Owens may have a chance to make the team's bullpen out of spring training, although he probably will start at AAA.
