>>If Anthony Kay receives a promotion to the Mets this season, it likely will be in his natural role as a starting pitcher.<<

For the record on Wallace’s journey:
Boise is in the Northwest League, which is a short season A league. The Northwest League is on the same minor league level as the New York Penn League in this part of the country. Both leagues tend to be the pro ball entry level spot for college baseball players who have signed on after being drafted.

I caught the tail end of Ed Coleman talking Mets with Joe and Evan this morning around 11. They were talking about Anthony Kay. Nice to hear him mentioned on WFAN. Sounds like the Mets have high hopes for him.

Here's one breakout prospect for every team

A little snippet on Anthony Kay as one of the 30 breakout prospects.


Mets: Anthony Kay, LHP (NYM No. 7)
It might not be long until Kay is pitching for the Mets after his recent promotion to Triple-A Buffalo. Few hurlers have been as successful this season as Kay, the Mets’ first-round pick in 2016. He received a bump up to the Minors’ highest level after a dominant showing with Double-A Binghamton, during which he ranked among the Eastern League leaders with a 1.49 ERA (second), 0.92 WHIP (fourth) and 70 strikeouts (fifth), all while limiting hitters to a paltry .165 clip over 12 starts.

This is funny. People who are writing for MLB.com about the minor leagues getting the Mets Triple A affiliate wrong. Kay was promoted to Syracuse, not Buffalo. Buffalo is currently a Toronto farm club.

With the Mets staff literally falling apart do we see Kay with the big club sooner rather than later?

A nice quick achievement for Willy Yahn. Another Husky getting to at least the Double A level. Players who get to that level seem to me are more than likely to be in the pro system for the long haul, even if they don't make it to the majors. I say this from the years I spent watching Double A ball in Norwich.
