Cole Gordon caught my attention when I saw he had won the Northeast Pitcher of the Month Award for August. In four starts for the New York Mets Double-A affiliate Binghamton Rumble Ponies, Gordon pitched 26 innings without allowing an earned run.
This Orel Hershiser-like stretch has landed him on the radar as one of the next Mets minor league pitchers to keep a close eye on.
