MMO Exclusive Interview: 2013 Sterling Award Winner, RHP Rob Whalen

Were talking to Mets pitching prospect Robert Whalen today. Rob was kind enough to take some time to answer a few questions for me. The soon to be 20 year old righty was selected by the New York Mets in the 12th round of the 2012 First-Year Player Draft out of Haines City (Fla.) High […]

2014 Mets Top Prospects: No. 19 Jayce Boyd, 1B

19. Jayce Boyd Height: 6’3” Weight: 185 lbs. Age: 23 Bats/Throws: Right/Right I don’t think Jayce Boyd receives enough credit as a prospect. You won’t find him high on many top prospect lists because as a first baseman, he struggles to hit for much power. What he can do, however, is simply hit. Drafted by […]

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

20. Luis Mateo Height: 6’3” Weight: 185 lbs. Age: 23 Bats/Throws: Right/Right Luis Mateo sort of fell into the Mets’ lap after two different deals with two different clubs were botched because of bone chips in his elbow and age falsification respectively. He probably could have been much, much higher on this list if he […]

2014 Mets Top Prospects: No. 22 Jeff Walters, RHP

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. He came out of nowhere to have one of the best seasons for a reliever on any Mets minor league affiliate. Walters posted a fantastic 2.09 ERA and […]

2014 Mets Top Prospects: No. 23 Cory Mazzoni, RHP

23. Cory Mazzoni Height: 6’1” Weight: 190 lbs. Age: 24 Bats/Throws: Right/Right There’s speculation that Cory Mazzoni could make the big league team out of spring training because the Mets have failed to add much depth in the bullpen to this point. It is more than likely that he will be apart of the bullpen […]

RHP Jeff Walters Shined Bright For B-Mets In 2013

Great pitching was the lifeline of the Binghamton Mets record setting baseball season this summer.  Wherever you looked; the starting rotation, long relief or closing, the B-Met pitching excelled.  There were multiple B-Mets who could be considered the 2013 Most Valuable Pitcher.  I’ve boiled that choice down to four promising right-handed arms, Rafael Montero, Logan Verrett, Noah Syndergaard and Jeff […]

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 […]
