No Mets On MLB Top 50 Prospects
Jonathan Mayo of MLB.com released his annual Top 50 Prospects last night on MLB Network.
Outfielder Mike Trout of the Los Angeles Angels was named baseball’s top prospect and deservingly so. The 19 year old phenom was a first-round pick in the 2009 Draft, and had a stellar season in 2010, batting .362 with 45 steals and a .526 slugging percentage for Class A Cedar Rapids.
Rounding out the top five are right-handed pitcher Jeremy Hellickson of the Rays, Nationals outfielder Bryce Harper, Phillies outfielder Domonic Brown and Mariners second baseman Dustin Ackley.
The Kansas City Royals had the most prospects with six, followed by the Tampa Bay Rays with four, and then the Braves, Yankees, Reds, Rockies, Mariners and Blue Jays who all had three prospects each.
The Mets, Marlins, Brewers and A’s were the only four teams that had no prospects in the Top 50, however Wilmer Flores ranked #58 and just missed the cut.
Last week, Mayo ranked Wilmer Flores as the sixth best shortstop prospect in his Top 10 Shortstop Prospects rankings.
Flores hit .289 last season with 36 doubles, 11 home runs, and 84 RBI between Savannah and St. Lucie.
Check out Mayo’s complete list of Top 50 Prospects.
Also, Mayo will be hosting a chat later today at 2:00 PM ET to discuss the Top 50. You can join the discussion by clicking here.
