Sickels’ Updated Top 120 Prospect Rankings
Minor League Ball’s John Sickels released his Mid-Season Top 120 Prospect List this week and there were some nice surprises from a Mets perspective as Wilmer Flores jumped from being previously unranked to No. 76, an indication of how far Flores has seen his stock rise this season.
The Mid-Season Rankings did not include any players selected in the recent 2012 First Year Players Draft.
Zack Wheeler (No. 13) jumped out in front of Matt Harvey (No. 32) to take the top spot for the Mets on the list.
2011 first-rounder Brandon Nimmo slipped a little from 93 to 96, but it was negligible. RHP Jeurys Familia moved down a few ticks as well from 95 to 98.
RHP Michael Fulmer and 3B Jefry Marte both received honorable mentions.
The big news of course was to see Wilmer Flores make the grade after taking a huge hit in his prospect status in the past 18 months.
Finally, the Mets had more prospects ranked than any of their NL East rivals; NYM 5, MIA 4, ATL 3, WAS 3, PHI 2.
