Conforto so far handling jump to Double-A

Posted:
According to people in the game of baseball, the hardest jump for a minor leaguer is that from Single-A to Double-A. Don't tell that to Michael Conforto! In three games since joining the Binghamton Mets, the 2014 first round draft pick is hitting .300 (3-10) with 4 RBI, a double, and a triple.

"It's the same sport, any league you go to," Conforto said. "The pitching is more consistent, some better pitching up here. But, just try to keep everything consistent and everything the same and make sure I don't change anything and play baseball the way I know how to."

"Michael's going to just fine here because he has a good approach at the plate," said B-Mets Manager Pedro Lopez. "His plate discipline is pretty solid. I just hope he doesn't shy away from what he's trying to do or even what he did in the first month and a half or two in St. Lucie. We've seen the same hitter we've seen in Spring Training, so I just hope he can continue to do what he does best."
