Flashback Series Interview with Corey Oswalt from 2014 when he was with the Brooklyn Cyclones
Major League Baseball began play and the New York Mets were one of many teams in action for the start that is the 60-game season and well going up against their National League East Rivals the Atlanta Braves was never an easy task to begin with, but things were made so much tougher in the latest chapter to this great rivalry.
Things started off so well for New York as Designated Hitter Yoenis Céspedes hit a bomb of a shot in the Seventh Inning of the first game between these two teams. Atlanta was able to regain their offensive momentum in the other two games though downing the Mets by scores of 5-3 and 14-1.
Some of the things that can bring hope for the fans of the Mets is the fact that they are starting to see some of the top prospects of the team making an impact during the 2020 Season. For example Infielder Andrés Giménez, who is a Top-50 prospect with the team. Gimenez who has seen time with the Binghamton Rumble Ponies as well as the St. Lucie Mets has always been known to have a great glove and will look to impress the team with his bat.
During his Minor League Career Gimenez recorded 400 hits to go along with 22 homers and 152 RBIs. Another great prospect that was seen on the pitching side of things for the Mets in the final game of the three game set against the Braves was Corey Oswalt.
Corey who has seen time with the Brooklyn Cyclones (to name only a few of the teams he has had the chance to pitch with) holds an overall record of 51-26 and was able to record 517 strikeouts. Oswalt was selected to the New York-Penn League All-Star Game during the 2014 season, and will look to contribute a ton of positive innings for the Mets this coming season.
New York will have a ton to look forward too as they have four game series against the Boston Red Sox with two games set to be played in Fenway Park and two to be played at Citi Field. Today’s game scheduled for 7:35 p.m. features pitcher Michael Wacha on the mound for New York.
Wacha holds a 59-39 record, with a 3.91 ERA, striking out 759 batters in 867 innings pitched.
