Scouting Trip: Port St. Lucie Mets

Recently I got to check out the St.Lucie Mets in Jupiter Florida as they played a few games against the Palm Beach Cardinals. Talking to a few scouts at the games, the Mets have some talent on the horizon, mostly in young pitching. Here are a few pictures from Rodger Dean Stadium in Jupiter, Florida. All pictures here are exclusive property of Steven Inman and BrokeMets

Starting pitcher Tyler Pill was very sharp for the St. Lucie Mets. After being taken in the 4th round of the 2011 draft, Pill is 6-1 with a 2.05 era for single A St Lucie. Many scouts believe he is ticketed for the fast track to the Mets struggling bullpen. In this at bat Pill Struck out Cardinals first round pick James Ramsey.

Cesar Puello just 21, came in to 2012 as the Mets 5th best prospect in their farm system.

Cardinals 2012 first round pick Michael Wacha was dominant in his only inning of work. Like the Mets, the Cardinals new philosophy has been to only permit their new draftees to pitch no more than 2 innings at a time.

    Hi – I was looking up pictures of Michael wacha in 2012 when he pitched for the palm beach cardinals. You seem to have the only pic I can find, but it is pretty blurry. I’m trying to see what number is on his jersey as I believe I’ve stumbled upon it. I collect game used cardinals items and I’m trying to verify that wacha wore the number 38 while in palm beach. Just curious to know if you had any other photos of him where his jersey number is visible. Long shot I know but Im hopeful.

    Thanks,
