Mets David Wright says he saw “some really dominant pitching” from Threshers’ Mauricio Llovera

Yesterday was one of the most interesting days in watching baseball at Spectrum Field.  Probably best not to make too much of it but Mauricio Llovera sure impressed. He struck out the rehabbing Mets third baseman, David Wright, twice. Wright finally got him in his third at bat but it was a hard line out to left.

David Wright struck out by Mauricio Llovera

Yes, this was Wright’s first attempt at a comeback since last August. Read the reviews of Wright from Sunday, HERE, HERE and HERE. 

Below is it what Wright said about the Phillies pitching prospect, Clearwater Threshers’ pitcher, Mauricio Llovera:

“It was good to get out there,” Wright told reporters after the game. “Hopefully the results will come, but for now, getting three at-bats, going out playing the field for five innings, seeing some pitches, seeing some really dominant pitching…it was good to be challenged like that early. I’m all smiles.”

Llovera sure was impressive. Watch Wright’s three at bats against Llovera, HERE.

As we pointed out in our previous blog, Llovera has come on strong with his 95-97 mph fastball and freezing slider in his last three starts by striking out 24 in his last 18.2 innings, including David Wright twice.
