Mets Farm Systems Review Day 1: It’s Positive!

Around the Minaya-Era, Mets fans experienced bleak farm system reviews. Our market hyped up our prospects, some deserved, some not, and mixed with some bad luck (Reese Havens never staying healthy), the Mets never really had rave reviews on the farm system. The last four years, around when Beltran was traded for Wheeler, this started to change and now the Mets have a farm system that lost 5 players in the Rule V Draft.

Yesterday Minor League Ball released their top 20 Mets Prospects list and later today Baseball America will be releasing theirs. I cannot predict what Baseball America will say, but Minor League Ball was all over the Mets system. In short, the Mets have a strong amount of players that project to not only be major leaguers but also project to be possible starters, or major league mainstays. A huge amount of players also got a ranking of “C+” which at the the lower levels / ages that they are, they are on track to be an A/B type prospect (Cecchini, D Smith, Whalen and Becerra are in this category while Mazzoni, Mazilli are your more typical C+ prospects). Anyway here are the top 10, please visit the link for their grades and write-ups, which are worth it:

  1. Noah Syndergaard
  2. Steven Matz
  3. Dilson Herrera
  4. Brandon Nimmo
  5. Kevin Plawecki
  6. Rafael Montero
  7. Michael Conforto
  8. Marcos Molina
  9. Ahmed Rosario
  10. Jhoan Urena

Becerra, ranked at 17 at age 20 was said to have one of the highest ceiling bats in the system. His name should sound familiar as he was also part of the R.A. Dickey trade.
