Wilmer Flores Tops Another Mets Top Prospects List
Fangraphs posted their Mets Top 10 Prospects list today. Have a look:
1. Wilmer Flores
2. Kirk Nieuwenhuis
3. Matt Harvey
4. Juan Urbina
5. Fernando Martinez
6. Alderin Rodriguez
7. Reese Havens
8. Cesar Puello
9. Cory Vaughn
10. Robert Carson
That’s the first time I’ve seen Nieuwenhuis ranked so high on any Mets top prospects list. John Sickels, who has been doing this for decades, ranked him at #14 in the organization just last month.
I was also surprised to see Urbina ranked so high as well considering the mediocre quality of his pitches.
F-Mart just keeps sliding year after year and I’m thinking that Cory Vaughn could pass him up by mid-season if he repeats his success at a higher level in 2011.
Notables that didn’t make this list are Jenrry Mejia and Lucas Duda who both showed some flashes and signs of being quality major leaguers in the future.
I’m not to thrilled with this list but wanted to pass it along and see what some of you thought.
One last note - In their minor league power rankings, they ranked the Mets 27 out of 30. I definitely don’t see the Mets that low and I’d agree with Sandy Alderson’s assessment in which he put the Mets in the middle of the pack right now.
