Rookie Power

The New York Mets, believe it or not, are one of the youngest teams in the MLB. The Mets have 7 rookies on their MLB roster who started out the year in the Triple-A Affaliate in Buffalo. Pedro Beato, Dillion Gee, Dale Thayer, Nick Evans, Ruben Tejada, Justin Turner, and Jason Pridie are those 7 rookies. All of these guys have helped us in games all during the year. Beato started out the year throwing 18 2/3 scoreless innings. Gee has started out the year 5-0, a Mets rookie record. Thayer has helped us get out of many jams this year. Evans walked during Thursday's game, which kept the 6th inning going. Ruben Tejada has gotten 5 RBI in the last 2 games. Justin Turner has gotten 18 RBI in the month of May and was named NL Rookie of the Month for May. Pridie has gotten 3 HR's in May with 11 RBI's. All of these Rookies have VERY bright futures ahead of them.
