Mets Minors: Familia Is Dealing, Cyclones Announce Staff, Tanous Anyone?

There’s a lot of great buzz on Jeurys Familia down in St. Lucie, where he’s looked very impressive during his bullpens. Today, Noah Syndergaard got all the press during the Mets intrasquad game, but he was outperformed by Familia who tossed two scoreless innings and struck out five while hitting the same 96-97 on the […]

2014 Mets Top Prospects: No. 5 Kevin Plawecki, C

No. 5 Kevin Plawecki, C Height: 6’2” Weight: 205 lbs. Age: 22 Bats/Throws: Right/Right Kevin Plawecki doesn’t quite have the ceiling as Travis d’Arnaud but he’s a nice prospect in his own right. He was drafted in the supplemental first round of the 2012 draft out of Purdue University; a draft in which catching was scarce. […]

2014 Mets Top Prospects: No. 11 Gavin Cecchini, SS

11. Gavin Cecchini Height: 6’1” Weight: 180 lbs. Age: 20 Bats/Throws: Right/Right Gavin Cecchini receives his fair share of criticism because his ceiling is not as high as your traditional first round draft pick. The Mets took Cecchini with the 12th overall pick in the 2012 draft because his already impressive floor provided somewhat of […]

A Promise Kept And A Call To Action

It’s a signing waiting to happen. After months of posturing, months of Hot Stove positioning, the coals are getting warm and spring training will soon begin. As of yet, no major league team has signed Stephen Drew to play shortstop for the 2014 season. Will they sign him or will they pass? Speculation has raged […]

Minors Notes: Mets High On Flores and Lawley, Herrera May Play SS, Smith May Skip Brooklyn

Here are some takeaways from Thursday’s Q&A with the Mets minor league officials (@MetsFarmReport) on Twitter. When asked who their top power hitter in the system was, Mets officials didn’t hesitate to mention Dustin Lawley. I asked a followup question and wondered if Lawley would stick at Triple-A after the Mets jumped him all the […]

Rising Through The Ranks: Dustin Lawley and T.J. Rivera

There are two Mets prospects that I will be keeping a very close eye on in 2014, and I would suggest other Mets fans do the same. It’s not Noah Syndergaard…it’s not Rafael Montero…nope, it’s not even Travis d’Arnaud. The two Mets prospects everyone should be keeping an eye on in 2014 are T.J. Rivera […]

Featured Post: Mets Prospects Who Have Something to Prove

Since Sandy Alderson took over in 2010, his main focus has been rebuilding a depleted farm system.  He has done a pretty good job of it by drafting very young players with impressive, raw tools that need polish in Gavin Cecchini, Brandon Nimmo, and Dominic Smith, and adding some more promising names via trade in Zack […]
