Anthony Kay Named To All-Star Futures Game Roster
New York Mets pitching prospect Anthony Kay has been named to the 2019 All-Star Futures game roster. Anthony Kay will be the only one from the Mets minor league teams to represent the Mets this year.
Kay, 24, has gone 7-5 with a 2.63 ERA, 1.06 WHIP, and 9.6 K/9 in 75.1 innings between the Double-A Binghamton Rumble Ponies and Triple-A Syracuse Mets in 2019.
The starting pitcher played lights out with Binghamton, posting a 1.49 era before getting promoted to Syracuse. Since then, he's struggled adapting to the triple-A level, allowing 11 runs in nine innings with Syracuse. In his last outing though he allowed only two runs in four innings.
The All-Star Futures Game takes place on July 7 in Cleveland. For the first time it will be the National League vs the American League.
