Where Will Mets Pitching Prospects Start Their Seasons?

Yesterday, I asked our Mets minor league expert Pete Shapiro where he thought our top pitching prospects would start their 2012 seasons.

His answer was interesting enough that I thought I’d share it with all of you:

I’m going to go out on a limb and say Harvey and Familia are going to start at AAA (remember they already had Wally for their manager at Bingo last year).

Wheeler and Gorski could begin at AA.

1. Matt Harvey
2. Jeurys Familia
3. Collin McHugh
4. Chris Schwinden
5. Brandon Moore or Mark Cohoon

1. Zack Wheeler
2. Darin Gorski
3. Scott Moviel
4. Greg Peavey
5. Kyle Allen, Adrian Rosario

St. Lucie
1. Logan Verrett
2. Cory Mazzoni
3. Tyler Pill
4. Jack Leathersich
5. Ryan Fraser

1. Juan Urbina
2. Dom Tapia
3. Rafael Montero
4. Akeel Morris
5. Bret Mitchell

Pete will be reporting from Buffalo, Binghamton and Brooklyn this season for MMO and providing his insights all year long.

He’s currently wrapping up the final segment of MMO’s 2012 Top 50 Mets Prospects and has some other cool features lined up after that. In the past ten weeks he has conducted over a dozen interviews with Mets prospects including Michael Fulmer, Danny Muno, Dylan Owen and just this week Darin Gorski and Scott Moviel. You can check them all out here.

In the next week I’ll be introducing a new addition to our team who will providing coverage from Port St. Lucie for Spring Training, and season long coverage of our Florida affiliates as we bring you more dedicated Mets minor league coverage than ever before.

Thanks for your support… LGM!
