Three Binghamton Mets were selected to play in the annual Eastern League All-Star Game in Reading, Pennsylvania on July 11. Zack Wheeler, Eric Campbell, and Jefry Marte got the call to play in the game.
Wheeler, 23, is in his third pro season and is proving to everyone why he is considered a top prospect in the Mets organization. He is 7-3 this season with a 2.29 ERA and 77 strikeouts. He may be up in Triple-A by July 11, and may not even attend the game.
Marte, 21, is another B-Met considered to be a top Mets prospect. Ranked 20th on my pre-season list, Marte is hitting .271 on the season with six home runs and 37 RBI. Marte’s .271 batting average is the highest he’s had in any of his four professional seasons in the United States.
Campbell, 25, was an eighth-round pick in the 2008 draft out of Boston College. This is his third year with Binghamton, but by far his best season of his career. He’s hitting .325 with 31 RBI. He also has a .433 on-base percentage in 57 games this season.
Binghamton has 11 games left in their first half schedule before the All-Star break begins on July 10.
