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

20. Luis Mateo Height: 6’3” Weight: 185 lbs.

He probably could have been much, much higher on this list if he […]

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.

24. Juan Centeno Height: 5’10” Weight: 170 lbs.
