An article by posted on January 22, 2011

Bradley O’Neill of Deep Leagues released his Top 250 Prospects list last week, and although no Mets made the top twenty, seven Mets prospects did make cut. First, the top twenty:

1. Bryce Harper OF, Nationals

Three NL East prospects in the top ten; Harper from the Nats, Brown from the Phillies, and Teheran from the Phillies.

Mets Top Prospects

36. Jennry Mejia  P, Mets
104. Wilmer Flores  SS, Mets
127. Matt Harvey P, Mets
139. Reese Havens  2B, Mets
194. Fernando Martinez  OF, Mets

232. Lucas Duda  OF, Mets

Complete Top 250 Prospects List

Jenrry Mejia continues to be the Mets top prospect and Wilmer Flores may be losing ground to first round draft pick Matt Harvey.

Fernando Martinez just continues to fall, and I thought that Nieuwenhuis and Duda had poor showings as well.
