MLB Pipeline finished their tinkering for the 2018 season and released an updated Top 100 MLB prospects list with four New York Mets included.

The first Mets prospect on the list is 20-year-old shortstop Andres Gimenez at No. 55. The youngster slashed .281/.347/.409 in 122 games this season between the Advanced-A St. Lucie Mets and Double-A Binghamton Rumble Ponies. He also set a new career-high with 38 stolen bases.

Only three spots behind Gimenez is slugging first base prospect Peter Alonso at No. 58. The 23-year-old was arguably the best hitter in the minors leagues this season outside of Vladimir Guerrero Jr. He led the minor leagues with 119 RBI and tied for the lead with 36 homers. He hit .285/.395/.579 in 132 games between Binghamton and Triple-A Las Vegas.

Mets’ 2018 first rounder Jarred Kelenic takes his place at No. 62 after only 56 pro games between the Rookie League GCL and Kingsport Mets. The 19-year-old outfielder hit .286/.371/.468 with 10 doubles, six triples, six homers and nine outfield assists in his first taste of pro ball.

Rounding out the Mets inclusion in the top 100 is right-handed starter Justin Dunn at No. 89. The recently turned 23-year-old had a bounce back season with a 3.59 ERA and 156 strikeouts in 135.1 innings between St. Lucie and Binghamton.

The San Diego Padres and Atlanta Braves led with the list with nine players each.
