Harvey, Wheeler, Harris Receive Top Honors From Baseball America
Baseball America released their annual Best Tools Survey for 2012. It’s one of my favorite features and I always look forward to it.
Basically they survey minor league scouts and league managers for all the affiliates, put all that info together, and then decide which prospects have the best tools over two dozen different categories.
We have a few Mets prospects that made the list:
Matt Harvey: Was named the Best Pitching Prospect in the International League. It was a remarkable honor because he was not recognized for having any of the best individual pitches.
Zack Wheeler: Was named the Best Pitching Prospect in the Eastern League and was also recognized for having the Best Fastball and Best Breaking Pitch in the league. Nice!
Alonzo Harris: This Mets speedster was named the Florida State League’s Best Baserunner. Harris has had a solid all-around season for St. Lucie.
Ryan Ellis: Was named the Florida State League’s Best Managerial Prospect. No doubt an honor he earned for an amazing first half of the season.
