New York Mets Top 10



CLICK HERE TO SEE NEW YORK'S TOP 10 2020 PROSPECTS

 

By Matt Eddy

Where the Mets lack in prospect proximity to the majors, they make up for in significant upside. 

Four of New York's Top 10 prospects were born in 2000 or later, highlighting an impressive wave of talent at the lower levels. That's buoyed by a draft haul which raised eyebrows for its aggressiveness back in June. 

While that certainly sparks future intrigue, the Mets are lacking in upper level options who could impact the big league club in 2020. New York's system ranked near the bottom our midseason talent rankings in 2019 after the graduation of Pete Alonso and departure of Anthony Kay and Simeon Woods-Richardson via trade to the Blue Jays in exchange for Marcus Stroman.
