Mets Vs. Braves Minor League Report: Mycal Jones Plays Center Field, Jairo Asencio Pitches Scoreless Frame

There were a couple brief minor league sightings in the second game of Spring Training against the Mets.

Offensively, Mycal Jones received a late pinch hit appearance and grounded out to short against Pat Misch. He played the last two innings in center field but didn't see any action. Wilkin Ramirez popped out in his only at bat. Matt Young replaced Dan Uggla in the late innings and struck out in his only at bat, which is a rarity. He stayed in to play second base.

Jose Constanza received one at bat and tried to bunt his way on but failed. I'm not sure why we're seeing so many bunt attempts, but it's the third or fourth already in two games. There was a brief Tyler Pastornicky sighting as a pinch runner in the ninth, but even he failed, getting caught stealing to end the game.

The only minor league pitcher who saw action was Jairo Asencio in the ninth. He gave up a single to Jeffrey Glenn and a walk to Chin-lung Hu, but he struck out Lucas Duda and received some luck with a lined double play to shortstop. Not an overly dominating inning, but nothing really to report.

No real impact was made by a minor leaguer and no stock was changed by the game. Ho hum.
