Wheeler, Harvey, Familia Among MLB’s Top 100 Prospects


Jonathan Mayo of MiLB.com lists Zack Wheeler (#28), Matt Harvey (#38), and Jeurys Familia (#90) among his 2012 Top 100 Prospects.

Here are videos of all three Mets pitching prospects including comments Paul DePodesta made to Mayo

Zack Wheeler

Selected sixth overall by the Giants in the 2009 First-Year Player Draft, Wheeler features what Mets vice president of scouting and player development Paul DePodesta called the farm system’s best wipeout stuff. “If a hitter has two strikes, he’s probably the most dangerous,” DePodesta said.

Matt Harvey

“Matt has really impressed me just with how mature he is,” DePodesta said, “how dedicated and how focused he is on the task at hand, how willing he is to work on things, when he knows that they’re not going to benefit him immediately, but they may benefit him down the line.”

Jeurys Familia

“Familia has impressed me on a lot of different fronts,” DePodesta said. “For such a young guy, I’m impressed with his mental discipline and mental focus in addition to the stuff. All these guys have electric stuff, and that jumps out at you right away.”
