4. Matt Harvey, rhp
5. Kirk Nieuwenhuis, of
6. Reese Havens, 2b
7. Lucas Duda, of/1b
8. Fernando Martinez, of
9. Aderlin Rodriguez, 3b
10. Brad Holt, rhp
- Holt, Rodriguez and F-Mart have each dropped off the list, while Lucas Duda now enjoys life as the Mets right fielder.
- In just one year, three of the top eight prospects in the organization were brought in by Sandy Alderson, including two of the top three.
- I was pleasantly surprised to see Michael Fulmer debut so high.
- Right-handed starter Jeurys Familia probably made the biggest jump in progress last season.
- One player I thought I’d see on this list is Jordany Valdespin. Jim Callis was high on him over the summer.
