Scout.com wrote: The Mets' first selection in the 2006 draft, the 21-year-old right-hander was promoted to Double-A Binghamton on Tuesday. He will make his debut for the B-Mets on Thursday at NYSEG Stadium against the Erie SeaWolves.

Mulvey, a product of Villanova University, was selected in the second round (62nd overall) this June and reached an agreement with the Mets on Aug. 9.

Mulvey initially reported to the Mets' Gulf Coast League affiliate in Port St. Lucie, Fla., making one appearance, his professional debut. On Aug. 19, Mulvey started against the GCL Marlins and pitched two innings, allowing one hit, walking none and striking out one.

A native of Parlin, N.J., Mulvey went 3-8 with a 3.61 ERA in his junior year at Villanova, throwing five complete games in 14 starts. In 92.1 innings, Mulvey allowed 91 hits, 49 runs (37 earned), with 23 walks and 88 strikeouts.

In his three-year career at Villanova, Mulvey was 14-16 with a 4.43 ERA in 41 starts, ranking second in school history with 222 strikeouts in 244 innings.

Binghamton also announced that right-hander Blake Eager was transferred to Class-A St. Lucie of the Florida State League. The B-Mets received left-hander Rich Rundles from St. Lucie.

Maine has a good swing for a pitcher but on anything that moves, he has no chance. And if it's a fastball, it has to be up in the zone. Basically, the pitcher has to hit his bat. - Mike Pelfrey

RHP Kevin Mulvey, the Mets first selection in the 2006 draft, was promoted to Double-A Binghamton on Tuesday…

In his first and only start in the Gulf Coast League, Mulvey allowed no runs through two innings on one hit while striking out one and walking none…

He will start in Binghamton on Thursday…

It's definitely fast but it's not that strange to see a college pitcher reach AA in his first season. Also, Minaya has a history of being very aggressive moving his players through the minors.

I've read somewhere that some scouts project him to turn into a middle of the rotation guy.

That's pretty much what Jim Callis (Baseball America) said about him:

There was talk that he could go in the supplemental first round, but the Mets landed him in the middle of the second round and signed him for slot money, $585,000. He has three solid pitches, including a low-90s fastball, a curveball or a slider. Despite his good stuff, Mulvey didn't dominate mid-level competition at Villanova, so that's a red flag. But if he develops as hoped, he should be a nice mid-rotation starter for New York two or three years from now.

No W yet but he has a 2.45 ERA in 7.1 IP (2 games) and 9 K.
