The Mets have announced that they’ve released P Brad Holt, P Danny Herrera, P Craig Hansen,OF Mike Wilson, OF Corey Patterson, OF Pedro Zapata & INF Brandon Brown. Of course the name that jumps out at you here is 2008 first rounder Brad Holt who was once held in the same regard as Michael Fulmer and Noah Syndergaard are today. I remember how he blew away everyone in his first spring camp and how coaches and […]
I spent most of the day on the backfields at Port St. Lucie yesterday and had some fun watching many of the minor leaguers already in camp, many of whom are reporting early. I made a few small notes I wanted to share with the readers on MMO, but mostly wanted to pass along a significant health update on one of our top prospects. As most of the readers here know, 19-year old righthander Michael […]
The Binghamton Mets and Springfield Cardinals played to a scoreless tie today in minor league action. While there may not have been much offense in the game, the pitching was very impressive, as Domingo Tapia and Jacob deGrom combined efforts in the shutout. Tapia got the start, going four innings and allowed just one hit. MMO had both Tapia and deGrom pegged to start the season at High-A ball with the St. Lucie Mets. However, they were […]
Here is a list of Top 150 Prospects for 2013 by Minor League Ball’s John Sickels. Sickels explains that the rankings presents a balance between long-term upside and present ability, and that he tends to favor players who are closer to the majors than those who are far away. “My background is sabermetric, but my approach is to blend sabermetrics and traditional scouting,” he writes. “I may lean one way or another on a particular […]
Anthony DiComo of MLB.com confirms that pitching prospect Michael Fulmer will have surgery to repair a torn meniscus in his right knee today at the Hospital for Special Surgery in Manhattan. Mets team physician Dr. Struan Coleman will perform the operation. Get well soon, Mike… Originally Post March 11 at 7:45 PM Mets pitching prospect Michael Fulmer tore the meniscus in his right knee and is on his way to New York where they will […]
I was flipping through Baseball America’s most recent issue listing their 100 Top Prospects, and I came across something interesting in their organization reports about the New York Mets. In summary, they state that the Mets now believe they have “one of the most promising stables of right-handed power arms in the game.” This is some very optimistic, yet very bold thinking from the Mets. I like the message they are trying to put out to […]
Baseball Prospectus released its Top 101 Prospects this morning and four Mets prospects made the cut. Three of them won’t surprise you as they’ve already appeared on more than a few top prospect lists this year. But what a nice surprise it was to see RHP Michael Fulmer ranked 98th and finally get some much deserved recognition. Topping the list for the Mets of course was RHP Zack Wheeler (5th), C Travis d’Arnaud (15th), and RHP Noah Syndergaard (28th). […]
While the Mets try to make do with an outfield made up of what would likely be utility outfielders on most other teams, John Harper of the Daily News sheds some new details on the Mets’ failed pursuits of Justin Upton and Michael Bourn. Regarding Upton, the Mets were hoping he would just fall in their laps for either Daniel Murphy or Ruben Tejada plus two A-Ball pitching prospects, believing Arizona GM Kevin Towers was […]
After reading the wonderful prospects list that some of my fellow MMO writers put together, (which is incredibly well-done, well-researched and a must-read for prospect gurus), I decided to share my own prospect list, which I have been working on for a while, with you all. In putting together this list, I tried to balance as best I could major league readiness with the so-called “ceiling” of each prospect. In compiling the list, I looked […]
