In Savannah, Greg Peavey continues to perform. With his win yesterday, his record is now 6-2. He held Augusta to four hits and a run in six innings while striking out six. In 72 innings he’s struck out 64 while walking only 11. A righty, he’s been more effective against left-handed batters. His ERA against them is 0.87; whereas, against righties, it’s 4.83.
The Mets drafted Peavey last year in the sixth round.
In contrast, catcher Blake Forsythe continues to underperform. At Savannah, he’s hitting only .217. In 44 games he has 47 strikeouts, a slugging percentage of .368, and an OBP of .294. The right-handed batter isn’t hitting either righties or lefties. He’s hitting .216 against lefties and .217 against righties. A surprising stat is that in 23 home games he’s hitting .162; whereas, in 21 away games, he’s hitting .269. The Mets drafted Forsythe in the third round, the only mistake I think the team made in their first 5 choices.
