Allan Dykstra was drafted in the first round of the 2008 MLB Draft by the San Diego Padres. He played his college ball at Wake Forest University, and the Demon Deacon was considered one of the top power threats in college baseball at the time. Some considered Dykstra to be a better prospect than Ike Davis coming out of college, mainly because of his power and his ability to get on base. He was a […]
Michael Fulmer is continuing his road to recovery from knee surgery to repair a torn meniscus earlier this spring. After throwing five innings last week in an extended spring training game, the right-handed pitcher threw another four innings on Wednesday. In talking with people on twitter, Fulmer said he’s expecting to make one more start before taking his rehab to the Gulf Coast League. At this point, he’s unsure as to whether he’ll be reporting to Advanced-A […]
For the first two weeks of the minor league season, the Mets were represented with a prospect cracking the Baseball America Hot Sheet. Last week it was Rafael Montero. This week, it’s Wilmer Flores. Both players were listed “In The Team Photo,” which is basically considered an honorable mention. As I stated in the Mets Minors Report earlier today, Flores is quietly having a nice season offensively. This fine hitting prospect seems like he has […]
TYLER PILL, RHP Bats: R Throws: R Height: 6’1″ Weight: 185 lb. Position: RHP Age: 22 ETA: 2014 MMO Top Prospect Rank: #28 Background: Here is a brief profile on Tyler Pill from the recent 2013 MMO Top 25 Prospect series: Pill’s fastball basically sits in the high-80s. Pill also tosses a curveball out there, which I feel is pretty underrated, and a slider and change-up. The slider is extremely inconsistent and hittable, but could potentially be […]
Teddy Klein, fellow Minor League Analyst here at MMO, did an excellent piece on German Ahmed Rosario earlier today. I did a review of some footage on Rosario, and wanted to share some thoughts I had on the exciting prospect. The first thing I noticed was that Rosario is very raw at the plate. He seems very aggressive, and his stride in the batter’s box is a tell-tale sign of it. His stride is quite […]
Vicente Lupo, OF Bats: R Throws: R Height: 6’ Weight: 180 lb. Position: Outfield Age: 19 ETA: 2016 MMO Top Prospect Rank: #15 Background: Here is a brief profile on Vicente Lupo from the recent 2013 MMO Top 25 Prospect series: Signed as an international free agent in July of 2010, Lupo quickly showed a penchant for extra-base power at a young age. While his 2011 season was marred after a dangerous bout with malignant hypothermia that ruined […]
Kevin Plawecki, C Bats: R Throws: R Height: 6’2″ Weight: 205 lb. Position: Catcher Age: 22 ETA: 2015 MMO Top Prospect Rank: #19 Background: Here is a brief player profile from the recent 2013 MMO Top 25 Prospect series: The 35th pick in the 2012 draft, Kevin Plawecki, was selected with one of the comp picks we received for losing Jose Reyes. The main criticism about the pick was not so much a knock on Plawecki, but rather […]
Updated by Joe D. on 2/27 We may hear those words blare over the Citi Field PA system one day in the near future during a Mets game… Maybe… Whether or not Wilmer Flores should be handed an outfield glove has been debated quite passionately on MMO many times over the last several months. We’ve all debated the pros and cons of such a move, and obviously so have the Mets. As Andrew Keh of […]
Thomas Javier (T.J.) Rivera, 2B Bats: R Throws: R Height: 6′ 1″ Weight: 190 lb. Position: Second Base Age: 24 ETA: 2015 Background: T.J. Rivera is a fellow New Yorker, born and raised in the Throggs Neck section of the Bronx. He was signed as a free-agent out of Troy University back in 2011. Not much is generally expected out of guys that aren’t drafted, but Rivera seems like his is on a mission to change that. In […]
