Baseball America recently updated its Top 100 Prospects list and the Mets saw a trio of players make the update.

Before the season began, Andres Gimenez was the lone Met on the list, coming in at No. 94. Since then, Peter Alonso and Jarred Kelenic have joined Gimenez on the list.

Gimenez, 19, jumped from No. 65 in the last update to No. 53 on the new list. The shortstop has enjoyed success since being promoted from Binghamton, hitting .304 and owning an OPS just under .800 in 46 at bats.

Gimenez was selected to the futures game during MLB All-Star Weekend. After starting 0-11 for Binghamton, He is hitting .400.

First baseman Peter Alonso went from No. 76 to No. 72. Alonso has been red hot in Las Vegas, hitting .282 with seven home runs since the All-Star Break.

Alonso has his average up to .230 since his struggle to begin his time with the 51s. Alonso’s recent surge has also come after his Futures Game success that included a mammoth home run.

Kelenic went from No. 78 to No. 75. The 2018 first rounder has struggled to hit for Kingsport, but has been able to get on base with ease. Kelenic’s OBP is .143 points higher than his average, mainly because he’s walked 20 times in 152 plate appearances. The 19-year-old is 5-for-15 with a homer and six runs batted in throughout his last three games.
