Here are a couple of posts by Seedlings To Stars, who ranked Matt Harvey (No. 45), Zack Wheeler (No. 51) and Jeurys Famila (No. 54) on their Top 100 MLB Prospects. Matt Harvey - Harvey slots in just ahead of the two other bigtime Mets pitching prospects, Zack Wheeler (#51) and Jeurys Familia (#54). He doesn’t have Familia’s mechanical issues or Wheeler’s control problems, and he’s more consistent than either of the other two, so he’s a safer bet to have a long [...]
Matt Eddy of Baseball America has reported that the Mets have gone ahead and signed minor league free agent outfielder Adam Loewen to a minor league contract. The former pitcher and Orioles first round pick, ran into some major control problems and bouts with wildness and is now reinventing himself as an outfielder, much like Rick Ankiel before him. His major league line as a pitcher was 8-8 in 29 starts with a 5.38 ERA over the three year of [...]
REESE HAVENS, 2B Welcome back for the 11th installment of the 2012 MMO Mets Top 20 Prospect list. Today we bring you #10, featuring second baseman Reese Havens. The only reason Havens isn’t considerably higher on this list is his significant injury history. If he can stay on the field next year, there is every reason to believe he will soon force the Mets to hand over the second base job at Citi to him. [...]
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 [...]
The Arizona Fall League wrapped up their regular season this week, and will play their championship game tomorrow as division leaders Surprise Saquaros (26-10) and Salt City Rafters (22-16) face-off in a one game showdown. Here are the final statistics for the Mets contingent who played for the Peoria Javelinas (16-19). Keep in mind that the AFL is a serious hitters league. Three teams hit .300 and the league as a whole hit .286 and had [...]
I came into this season with high hopes for guys such as Cory Vaughn, Cesar Puello, Wilmer Flores and Aderlin Rodriguez. However, not a single one of the players I just listed came close to their 2011 expectations, especially for where they were ranked in the system. I understand that they are young, and still have time to develop, but was it to much to ask for one of them to perform at a high level? Wilmer Flores: Coming [...]
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 [...]
