Keith Law of ESPN released his top 100 prospects list over the last couple of days with his top 50 being released today.

According to his list, Jarred Kelenic is now rated the 38th best prospect in baseball.

Kelenic, 19, was drafted by the Mets sixth overall in the 2018 MLB Draft, but was traded along with Justin Dunn, Jay Bruce, Anthony Swarzak, and Gerson Bautista in a blockbuster trade that saw the Mets acquire Edwin Diaz and Robinson Cano.

The outfield prospect appeared in 56 games this year in affiliated baseball, playing for both the Kingsport and GCL Mets.

Kelenic crushed the ball in his 51 plate appearances in Kingsport sporting a .431/.451/.609 slash line with one home run and nine RBI before being promoted the GCL Mets.

In his 44 games there, he would hit .253/.350/.431 with five home runs, 33 RBI, and 11 stolen bases.

Law also has Dunn in his top 100 list, ranking him the 58th best prospect. Meanwhile, four current Mets farmhands made the list as Mark Vientos (60th), Peter Alonso (90th), Andres Gimenez (97th), and Ronny Mauricio (99th) were included.
