Four Prospects Who Could Impact Mets In 2011
Anthony DiComo of Mets.com, believes that Jenrry Mejia, Lucas Duda, Fernando Martinez and Kirk Nieuwenhuis are all prospects to watch this season and writes the following:
RHP Jenrry Mejia: After speeding to the Majors last year at the age of 20, Mejia will most likely take a step back and open this season at Triple-A Buffalo. If he satisfies the Mets with his performance there, Mejia could rejoin the rotation at some point this summer.
OF Lucas Duda: After his cup of coffee last season, Duda will be back this spring for another shot at the Majors. Most likely, though, he’ll start the season in Buffalo, where he can play every day and continue to develop.
OF Kirk Nieuwenhuis: Perhaps the club’s center fielder of the future, Nieuwenhuis’ development could play a prominent role in the Mets’ decision whether to trade Beltran this summer. After making it all the way to Triple-A last season, he’s nearly ready for the big leagues.
OF Fernando Martinez: It’s a make-or-break season for Martinez, once one of the top few offensive prospects in baseball. Now 23 years old, Martinez must prove he can avoid injuries and hit at a high level, lest he fade back into obscurity.
