Here we go with the tenth installment of the MMO 2012 Mets Top 20 Prospects list. This pick represents the last one of the bottom half of the Top 20, #11. The player who gets the honor of topping the 11 thru 20 picks, is none other than RHP Cory Mazzoni. The Mets nabbed Mazzoni in the 2nd round of the 2011 draft out of North Carolina State. He was a starter for much of [...]
I caught up with Mack Ade of Mack’s Mets for a Q&A about the Savannah Sand Gnats the other day. Mack was nice enough to answer a whole lot of questions about the Mets farmhands that passed through Savannah this past season. Which players are going to advance to St. Lucie next year? Which players will stay back in Savannah? Which ones are prospects? And which are suspects? Keep reading to find out what Mack [...]
The Mets drafted Dylan Owen in the 20th round of the 2007 draft out of Francis Marion University. Since then he has gradually worked his way up through the Mets system, receiving little fanfare, but pitching well. He has spent time at nearly every level of the Mets minor league chain, from Brooklyn to Buffalo. Last year he pitched almost all season at AAA Buffalo, making 20 GS and 5 relief appearances totaling 116.1 IP. [...]
Welcome back for the 9th installment of the MMO Mets Top 20 Prospects list, featuring the #12 Mets prospect, Buffalo Bisons infielder Jordany Valdespin. Valdespin wouldn’t have made this list if not for the impressive showing he made in 2011. Although he is a gifted and “toolsy” athlete, he is still very raw, with a great many holes in his game. It’s just that you can’t ignore the natural talent, and his eye-popping abilities. A [...]
We are back once again for another installment of the 2012 MMO Top 20 Mets Prospect list, featuring the number 13 prospect, LHP Darin Gorski. The Mets selected Gorski in the 7th round of the 2009 amateur draft out of Kutztown University (PA). At the time, they drafted a 21-year-old, 6’4″ left-hander, who needed to build strength and stamina, clean up his mechanics, work on his fastball command, iron out his breaking ball, and develop [...]
Welcome to part seven, of the MMO Top 20 Mets Prospects countdown. Today’s entry is Mets prospect #14, infielder Phillip Evans. The Mets made Evans an over-slot pick in the 15th round of last June’s amateur draft, out of high school in Carlsbad, CA. While Brandon Nimmo garnered all the media attention, the Mets quietly signed Evans to a contract less than 24 hrs before the Aug. 15th deadline for signing drafted players. At the [...]
Once upon a time there was a 17-year-old, highly rated Mets prospect named Jefry Marte. Marte had signed as an IFA in July 2007, two weeks after his 16th birthday. The young, right-hand hitting third baseman made his stateside debut the following year in 2008, playing for the GCL Mets, where he hit a promising .325 in 154 AB’s, with an OPS of .930. It was then that Marte’s name started turning up on top [...]
Welcome to the fifth installment of the official MMO 2012 Mets Top 20 Prospects list, featuring RHP Collin McHugh of the Binghamton Mets, at #16. When the Mets made McHugh their 18th round pick in the 2008 draft, they found a player of unusual quality at that point in the draft. McHugh has been remarkably consistent throughout his professional career, taking on the obstacles at each level and keeping his game moving forward in a positive way. With four [...]
Mets pitching prospect Collin McHugh was kind enough to take some time out and answer a few questions for me for our MMO community. Collin is coming off a solid season that culminated with an impressive performance for Double-A Binghamton where he went 8-2 with a 2.89 ERA in 16 starts. The young right-hander is out in Arizona where he is presently playing for the Peoria Javelinas, along with seven other Mets farmhands, in the Arizona [...]
Welcome to the 4th installment of the official MMO 2012 Mets Top 20 Prospects list. Today we bring you #17, LHP Juan Urbina. In the summer of 2009, as a 16-year-old living in Venezuela, Urbina was one of the most sought after International Free Agents on the market. The Mets managed to sign him away from a slew of other teams that were also interested in the young left-hander. In 2010 he made his stateside [...]
Welcome to the third installment of the official MMO 2012 Mets Top 20 Prospects list, featuring RHP Akeel Morris of the Kingsport Mets, at #18. When the Mets made Morris their 10th round pick in the 2010 draft, they were drafting a player based on pure potential. Although raw as a pitcher, the power and talent were clearly there. The only reason he was still available in the 10th round, was similar as to the reason the [...]
