It was a slow week in the world of the Mets minor league system. However, while the St. Louis Cardinals and the Boston Red Sox were busy punching their tickets to this year’s World Series, we were busy trying to provide some quality original content. You can see everything our staff worked on over the past seven days below.
Baseball America continued their top prospect countdowns by league, and Thor found himself at the top of another list. Noah Syndergaard was ranked the third-best prospect in the Eastern League. Only Xander Bogaerts and Miguel Sano were slotted in front of him, making Thor the top pitcher in the league. That was an honor also bestowed upon him in the Florida State League, where he spent the first half of 2013.
The next list BA revealed were their top-20 ballplayers in the Pacific Coast League. Wally Backman‘s club put together the second-best record in the league, and we saw three Mets prospects crack this list. Zack Wheeler came in at number four, Wilmer Flores came in at number 15, and Rafael Montero ranked 18th.
The Appalachian League also gained another team, as the Pittsburgh Pirates acquired the club in Bristol, Tennessee — previously owned by the White Sox.
