Every year at 213 we do three series of articles, essentially all at the same time. We look back at Baseball America’s profiles for the Mets Top Prospects from the previous season and see how they are changing. We look at a conglomerate of projections and try to make sense of what will happen next and there is this series. Sometimes a player ends up in more than one.
That’s exactly what is happening with Ryley Gilliam, who we looked at on 2/9. We actually wrote about him the previous spring as well. Mainly our take away has been that, holding Syracuse outside, he’s pitched well at every single level he’s been at.
- 2019 Arizona Fall League – 7 G, 9.1 IP, 0.96 ERA, 1.071 WHIP
- 2019 Syracuse – 10 G, 9.1 IP, 13.50 ERA, 3.000 WHIP
- 2019 Binghamton – 12 G, 18.2 IP, 4.34 ERA, 1.179 WHIP
- 2019 St. Lucie – 7 G, 10.2 IP, 2.53 ERA, 0.938 WHIP
- 2018 Brooklyn – 17 G, 17.1 IP, 2.08 ERA, 1.358 WHIP
- 2018 Clemson – 27 G, 38.1 IP, 1.41 ERA, 1.148 WHIP
Here’s what we are looking for from Ryley. What can he do against Triple A level players? What can he do against major leaguers? If it wasn’t for the pandemic, he probably would be slated for at least a cup of coffee call up this season (and could have received one last year too). He’s close to at least touching the majors, so we are looking to see what he does against high caliber hitters on other teams.
