Baseball America on Friday listed the Nine Key Players To Watch In Winter Ball and #8 on their list was Mets Top Prospect Cesar Puello. After missing the rest of the 2013 season due to being handed a 50 game suspension in early August for his involvement in the Biogenesis scandal, he is in winter ball working towards regaining the swing that helped him put up some tremendous numbers in the first half with the B- Mets where […]
Baseball America (B.A.) released their latest issue which not only featured Noah Syndergaard on the cover, but also listed their new top ten prospect rankings for all the teams in the NL East. The Mets had a bunch of names we have all seen on these top prospect lists before–Syndergaard, Travis d’Arnaud , Wilmer Flores, Brandon Nimmo and Gavin Cecchini.

I was scanning through Josh Norris’ Baseball America chat on the Eastern League prospects — and it took me all of five seconds to find something to write about. Thanks for the chat, Josh. What did evaluators have to say about Cesar Puello‘s season, and did he end up close to making your list? Josh Norris: He didn’t end up close to making the list, and quite frankly, a great deal of it had to do with […]
Baseball America ranked Met pitching prospect Steven Matz in the final spot of their South Atlantic League Top 20 Prospects. Here’s what BA wrote about him: Led by control artists like Gabriel Ynoa (the league’s pitcher of the year) and Luis Cessa, Savannah walked 267 batters all year. Only one other SAL team walked fewer than 400. Matz didn’t paint corners as much as Ynoa or Cessa, but he did throw plenty of strikes while showcasing three potentially plus pitches: […]
