of his defense too, Kelenic seems like Mike Trout 2.0. LOL.

Obviously getting carried away, but hard not to be excited about this kid and Mauricio.

If Szapucki comes back healthy and maintains his stuff Mets could have a handful of potential players on the farm and that doesn't even consider Gimenez, Alonso, Dunn, Kay, Peterson, or any of others showing promise (inconsistently in some cases).

I'm not as bullish as Shecky, but I'm also not as pessimistic as others.
No one is as bullish as me lol  
Shecky : 7/11/2018 9:00 am : link
11 more months

On Kelenic. For those that were pushing for him to be promoted the Kingsport so early consider the following.
Heís a HS senior several months ago, who Ďdidnít play HS baseballí. Gets drafted and instantly promoted to Kingsport. India happened to be playing against them last night (3B UF drafted in front of Mets).

India was placed there, an advanced college bat... Kelenic is already there too. Small sample is an understatement, but India only has played a couple games so far, Kelenic two weeks already, first game at Kingsport. Kelenic now has two hits more and four RBI more than India does. Kelenic should not be off to a hot start like this.

if anything Peterson's stock is down. Has not been impressive.

Cavallaro was 85-87 last night. Not being a hater but odds are pretty small that profile works as he moves up but a good season is a good season.
Peterson  
DanMetroMan : 7/11/2018 9:10 am : link
22 innings 24 hits 12 walks 10 k's 5.32 era over his first 3 A+ starts, it's 3 starts but that's really ugly considering 57 k's in 59.1 innings in the SAL isn't that impressive for a first round pick D1 SP in a league with massive K rate.

Top 25 in the org I assume? Or you meant league-wide?

DanMetroMan : 7/11/2018 9:16 am : link
was curious so I looked it up, Peterson's K% in the SAL was 24th (Kay, Cavallaro, Dibrell ahead of him on his own team). Yes, he gets groundballs but good big league pitchers almost always miss X number of bats in A-ball. He has work to do. I'd currently rank him no higher than 6th in the system.

I know, but I expect it to rebound, he's maybe adjusting to a new level, it's only been 4 starts in STL. I'm not saying he projects to be a TOR starter, just that he's flashed (and I mentioned inconsistently with some of the prospects) and should factor into the Mets top prospect mix as a guy who should eventually see Queens.

don't have a 2019 top 40 list right now but I'd have all of Mauricio, Santana, Junior Santos, Adrian Hernandez, Newton pretty high. I don't like ranking players who haven't played a single game but bonus alone Alvarez has to be top 25 (higher) and Valdez likely is as well. Love Shecky but the system will still look poor on paper headed into 2019 but 2019 it could take a big jump.

I believe he's a big leaguer but I don't think he's more than a solid 4 in terms of upside. I actually think Kay (upside wise) is more intriguing nobody I know who has seen Peterson has come back with rave reviews in terms of his stuff. We can talk about velocity not being everything but 100% of the top pitchers in baseball have "top stuff" in todays game.

Should debut in next day or two
Speaking of Dilson  
pjcas18 : 7/11/2018 9:31 am : link
I read the Reds just called him up.

He was DFA's after ST and apparently had a pretty bad shoulder injury that impacted his 2016 and 2017 seasons, went unclaimed, was assigned to high A b/c they have a glut of middle infielders and between his solid play and injuries he's earned a spot with the big league club.

Not suggesting the Mets should have done anything different, or they shouldn't have traded him for Bruce, just always liked him and glad to see him persevere, hope he does well, other than if he plays against the Mets.
"Problem"  
DanMetroMan : 7/11/2018 9:31 am : link
is guys like Newton, Santana, Santos, Adrian Hernandez (Kenny is a bust), Vientos,SWR, Alvarez are all so low in the minors that major publications aren't going to give them much credit or notice. Kelenic was a high pick and Mauricio a known bonus baby so those 2 will be "credited" but the rest will be downplayed until they are doing it at higher levels/more proven. The Mets figure to have 3 top 100 prospects headed into next season Alonso (if he hasn't graduated), Kelenic and Gimenez. Mauricio would be the 4th guy if he finishes strong.

Woods won't get any prospect love this year. Not enough innings and was viewed as an overdraft. If he pitches well NEXT season then he will. I mean the 2018 draft basically won't even be "considered" outside of Kelenic.
I'm less concerned with actual rankings

than I am with exciting prospects. Maybe the two are linked to an extent, but as DMM sort of outlines, youth lags in rankings and I'm ok with that.

If the Mets are 26th again (for example), but Kelenic and Mauricio stay hot.

Gimenez remains steady or even improves some.

guys like Kay, Dunn, Peterson, Alonso, Vientos, etc. flash or better and Szapucki and Humphreys figure to return in 2019 I don't care where the farm system is ranked.

I would feel better than I did at the beginning of the season with Gimenez as the only really interesting name.
I wanted Banfield  
Shecky : 7/11/2018 9:39 am : link
So Iíll always hold it against Woods.

Agree about the publications not looking in the low levels. But all it will take is a little talk by the first one with balls to tell the positive narrative. And the rest will follow. If I was 3-6 months premature in my prediction, Iíll gladly admit to being Ďwrongí ;)

going to project the Mets in the 20-23 range in the pre-season rankings. Very little pitching and almost completely barren the AA/AAA levels outside of Alonso, will be dinged for both.

I think they have the lower level upside to move into the top 10-15 following NEXT season but as we've all noted the short-season guys don't move the needle unless they are high picks, bonus babies or truly phenoms.

I'm not writing off either one of these pitchers at this stage. They are both big guys, huge athletes. Peterson might find himself as the year goes on, he was a man among boys in the SAL. Cavallaro is a side-armer -- I don't know how that will play as a starter, but he was a reliever in college and had success.

pretty much exactly how I feel. Pitchers are especially tough to predict, so I'd prefer volume over than having 1 top ranked crown jewel. Predicting how skills (especially the mental skill of pitching) translate to the MLB is a crap shoot so i'm less concerned with having a handful on a top 100 list than a dozen or so who have exciting skills that give them a chance if things click.

I can't think of a single side-armed SP in baseball currently. As I noted I don't think Cavallaro is a SP going forward. Reliever ala Joe Smith he has a shot. Peterson should be a big leaguer just doesn't have TOR stuff. Stranger things have happened but I think he's a Niese type with upside to be slightly better (and last longer) but we'll never be anointing him the next big thing like DeGrom, Thor, Harvey or even Wheeler.

Cole
Paxton
Corbin

Stuff plays. Guys who get by on guile and smarts are extremely, extremely unusual. Peterson should be a solid big league SP. Cavallaro would be quite a surprise. According to fangraphs Hendricks is the softest tossing
RH SP in baseball with an average FB of 86.8 MPH followed by Colon and Fiers (88.7) so you are basically hoping Cavallaro is the next Hendricks or Colon, not exactly great odds

The exciting arms are recovering from TJS (Szapucki, Humphreys). The others project more as mid/back of the rotation (or BP) types but they were all high draft picks so who knows (Dunn, Peterson, Kay). Most of them were considered good picks at the time by the experts. They went overslot for year's 2nd rounder HS pitcher who is about to debut so hopefully he flashes even though he's a long way away.

That's my impression too.

It is what it is. I'm at least happy it doesn't appear to be completely hopeless like it did a little earlier this year. We probably also have a top 5 pick coming up in next year's draft.

If we are thin on close to MLB pitching, it begs the question on what to do with Wheeler. Would he rip up his last arb year and take something like 3/yr $50M and sell out 2 UFA years? Yea, he'd get a good amount more on the open market, but he'd still need to throw a lot of effective innings to get to the 2019 offseason and $50M is a lot of guaranteed money.

Correct. Dunn would be the only SP prospect in the upper minors and he has his own issues. Once Alonso and McNeil are up the top position prospect in AA/AAA is probably Cecchini or Tomas Nido... top SP prospect in the upper minors other than Dunn.. I can't identify a single SP prospect in AA/AAA who is likely to make a single major league start.

Who stayed hot
Mets SS Andres Gimenez, Class A Advanced St. Lucie: 3-for-5, 3B, 2B, 2 RBI, R -- This was Gimenez's second straight three-hit game and extended his hitting streak to nine games. Coming off a rough June in which he hit .202 over 25 games, the Mets' top prospect has produced a .410/.425/.590 line through 10 games in July. Already possessing a solid hit tool, the 19-year-old shortstop has begun to develop power this season. With two extra-base hits Tuesday, Gimenez now has 28 through 80 games in 2018, up from only 17 in 92 contests last year at Class A Columbia, and his slugging percentage has appropriately jumped from .349 to .434. With a more complete offensive profile to build on his already steady defensive work at short, Gimenez, who will participate in Sunday's Futures Game, could jump higher from his current spot at No. 68 in MLB.com's overall rankings.

It's a little odd to me how under the radar he still seems to be flying. At age 19 he's hitting for more power than Dom Smith showed in the same league at age 20 - except he plays a premium defensive position and is also leading the league in SB.

Non-toolsy types don't get a ton of love with "solid" but unspectacular lines. I mean Ruben Tejada hit .289/.351/.381 with 19 steals.. at 19... in AA and he never sniffed top 100.

as Gimenez nears Queens that he has to move off SS or is a butcher on D.

All I remember hearing about Smith was he was solid defensively and even somewhat nimble around the bag despite his size. Then all of a sudden in the bigs people say he's a net negative defensively.

Just makes me less confident in both scouts and their thoughts on D and defensive metrics.

And it's possible I could be miss-remembering, but I'm pretty sure there were zero questions about Smith's D.

And reality is Gimenez may be at 2B with Rosario at SS, but a SS is more valuable, so having both capable helps not hurts.

You are correct on all counts. Smith's D was supposed to be "GG caliber" when in fact he has zero range and is a career -7 DRS over 120 big league games.

Sandy's best thing was 1st round picks. Nimmo, Conforto, Fulmer, Plawecki. Jury obviously still out on Smith, Cecchini, Dunn, Kay, Peterson, and even the first list to some degree, but even 50% is a pretty good hit rate this early in most of those guys careers.

is fine enough but I wouldn't exactly call him a "hit" he's hitting .217 and has been worth -5 DRS defensively the last 2 seasons. He's a solid role player but they passed on Piscotty, Haniger, Gallo, Robertson, McCullers Jr., Olson (among others) who went right after him

The catcher position is terrible and he's been a league average hitter for 2 years now and he's not bad defensively. If he stays healthy he'll be an MLB catcher somewhere the next few years.
Mets released Molina...

I'm a bit surprised they did this because my understanding was that they had some open 60 man DL spots. I realize Molina is looking like a bust, but was there a need to do this now?
Dom Smith is a real keeper

And by the way he never should have jumped on Wilmers high throw in the top of the inning either. His footwork at 1b is equally terrible.
Canít wait for Dans minors recap tomorrow morning

Is Arc a front runner now or is this a schtick going on?
Nimmo at least doesn't suck

He's a fucking joke and everyone knows it.
Nimmo is such an easy player to root for

His on-field interview following the game at Citi was really classy and appreciated. Thanked the fans for coming out and staying til the end until the end of the game.

de Grom is such a badass. I really want the Mets to sign him to a long-term deal out of all the starters. He's shown an ability to navigate with reduced velocity (2016) and he is so smart and driven that I just see him finding a way to be excellent deep into his 30s.
