As we continue our analysis of the Mets minor league system through player rankings, I offer you the NY Mets Top Prospects, numbers 31 to 40. Although a few players here have slipped as far as their perceived rankings of the last few years, most listed here are new to Mets prospect rankings. Let’s take a look at what we’ve got: 31. Brad Holt (RHP) Holt was at one time ranked up near the top of […]
Yesterday, I asked our Mets minor league expert Pete Shapiro where he thought our top pitching prospects would start their 2012 seasons. His answer was interesting enough that I thought I’d share it with all of you: I’m going to go out on a limb and say Harvey and Familia are going to start at AAA (remember they already had Wally for their manager at Bingo last year). Wheeler and Gorski could begin at AA. […]
I got a chance to talk with Mets right-hander Scott Moviel just after Christmas and he was nice enough to bring us up-to-date as far as his progress in 2011. Before last season Scott was battling knee troubles which can be problematic for a pitcher who stands 6’11″. Now healthy once again, he provides us with some very interesting insights on the challenges he is taking on heading into next year. Check it out and […]
Baseball Instinct is rolling out their Top 360 Prospect list and so far through the first 60 player profiles, the Mets have four prospects. 345°. Juan Urbina, LHP Mets 5/31/1993 - The son of Ugeth Urbina, Juan has the bloodlines of an MLBer. He’s still growing into his 6’3″ frame and should work in the low 90s from the left side in time. It’s his CU, already an above average offering, that makes him one to watch. […]
For a college baseball player with aspirations of one day playing in the Major Leagues, the junior year is the most important one to his stock in the June amateur draft. The worst thing that could happen would be to get hurt at this critical time. That is exactly what happened to Charley Thurber of the University of Tennessee Volunteers. Battling untimely injuries, he fell in the draft from a top 10 round pick last […]
Baseball Prospect Nation posted their Mets Top 15 on Tuesday and here are their top five: 1. Zack Wheeler (RHP) Acquired for outfielder Carlos Beltran, Wheeler immediately jumped to the top of the Mets prospect list. He is a physical right-hander with a big fastball and knee buckling curveball. His fastball will routinely sit at 93-94 mph and touch 97 on a regular basis. His curveball is best when throw harder in the upper-70s […]
In putting together the MMO Mets Top 20 Prospect List for 2012, one thing became very clear, very fast. There were going to be some deserving players left off the list because of a numbers crunch. So now that the Top 20 are in the rear-view mirror, let’s explore the next 30 or so prospects. This week, I am listing the first group of ten, #’s 21-30. This group is pitching heavy, and has a little of […]
From the great John Sickels of Minor League Ball, here are your 2012 Top 20 Mets Prospects: 1) Matt Harvey, RHP, Grade B+: He can be a number two starter and someone to build around. Some evaluators see him more as a closer if his changeup remains erratic, but I’m cutting him some slack on that issue and am optimistic. 2) Zack Wheeler, RHP, Grade B+: This is actually more like Harvey -A and Wheeler 1-B. They are very close […]
Mets RHP Zack Wheeler is more than just the Mets #1 prospect. He is more than the player acquired in the one undeniably fantastic move that Sandy Alderson has pulled off as GM so far. He is more than a very talented, 21-year-old righty with an explosive fastball and a ton of upside. He is the hope for Mets fans, that the future will be here sooner rather than later. If the cash-strapped team known […]
