19. Jayce Boyd Height: 6’3” Weight: 185 lbs. Age: 23 Bats/Throws: Right/Right I don’t think Jayce Boyd receives enough credit as a prospect. You won’t find him high on many top prospect lists because as a first baseman, he struggles to hit for much power. What he can do, however, is simply hit. Drafted by […]

2014 Mets Top Prospects: No. 20 Luis Mateo, RHP

20. Luis Mateo Height: 6’3” Weight: 185 lbs. Age: 23 Bats/Throws: Right/Right Luis Mateo sort of fell into the Mets’ lap after two different deals with two different clubs were botched because of bone chips in his elbow and age falsification respectively. He probably could have been much, much higher on this list if he […]

2014 Mets Top Prospects: No. 22 Jeff Walters, RHP

22. Jeff Walters Height: 6’3” Weight: 170 lbs. Age: 26 Bats/Throws: Right/Right To say Jeff Walters made a name for himself this season would be an understatement.
