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.For the record on Wallace’s journey:
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.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.
