Yesterday we took a look at Minor League Ball’s review of the Mets system, which was a positive review! Minor League Ball talked about how the top 10 players in the Mets system all project to spend time in the majors at some point and that the lower leagues are in good shape as a well.
Midday yesterday, Baseball America released their top 10 for the Mets system, and they also talked about how the Mets look good on the prospect front:
- Noah Syndergaard
- Steve Matz
- Brandon Nimmo
- Dilson Herrera
- Kevin Plawecki
- Amed Rosario
- Michael Conforto
- Rafael Montero
- Marcos Molina
- Gavin Cecchini
The top 5 are essentially the same from Minor League Ball, except they have Dilson Herrera and Nimmo switched. Minor League ball also has Montero at 6 and Rosario at 9, then the rest essentially in the same spot (except Cecchini is at 11 and Urena in the top 10 citing that Urena is yet to get the national attention.
It’s interesting to note how many hitters both prospects list put in the top 10. While it doesn’t help us in the immediate short term, this bodes well down the road, especially if the Mets ever decide to make a move.
Several players from last year’s list have moved. #2 was d’Arnaud, who is now a regular. Montero has dropped from the three spot, Smith has dropped from the top 10 altogether but I think that’s an overreaction. Flores has also been dropped from the 6 spot, now a regular. Nimmo shot up, Cecchini dropped a spot and Jacob deGrom at the 10 spot won the rookie of the year. There’s a lot to like in the Mets farm system.
