Pitcher Justin Dunn has been proving his worth since the New York Mets promoted him from Advanced-A St. Lucie to Double-AA Binghamton.

New York’s 2016 first round selection out of Boston College, Dunn, 22, has pitched extremely well with the Rumble Ponies, going 5-2 with 2.66 ERA in 50.2 innings in eight game starts. Additionally, the Freeport, Long Island, New York, native has whiffed 56 batters to allowing just 18 walks, a phenomenal strikeout-to-walk ratio.

In his last outing on Saturday, Dunn tossed six solid innings without surrendering an earned run, in a 4-2 victory over the Trenton Thunder, the New York Yankees’ Eastern League affiliate.

Also, Dunn – the Mets’ fourth ranked player on MLB Pipeline’s Prospect Watch List – had enjoyed a measure of success with St. Lucie, posting a 2-3 mark with a sparkling 2.36 ERA in 45. 2 frames in nine tilts, to go along with impressive 51 strikeouts and a mere 15 bases-on-balls.

For his minor league career, the ex-Brooklyn Cyclone is 13-12 with a 3.45 ERA with 271 Ks to 91 walks in 221.2 innings in 48 contests, 41 of which were starts.
