Diamond Futures Mets Top Prospects 2011

Mets system ranked at #14. "Given the state of the franchise, our ranking of the Mets system likely comes as a surprise to some, but it remains fairly consistent with our view of the system from last year ( TEAM #16 – New York Mets )—a year that saw four of our top eight ranked prospects (Ike Davis, Reuben Tejada, Jon Niese and Josh Thole) make significant contributions with the Big League club. It is an interesting organization in the sense that there are few superstars but a substantial number of players that are likely to make Major League contributions—something that would typify last year’s rookie crop."

Its predictably bad. Here are the Rangers blurbs: We got a glimpse of just how special Feliz could be during his late season call-up in 2009. He was dominant in more than 30 innings of work, showcasing his electric upper-90s fastball. Whether he will start or relieve is the long-term question, but either way he should be one of the more fascinating young arms to watch in 2010. Smoak hit some bumps in the road in 2009 at the upper levels, but most scouts agree that he's still very much on track. The Rangers are deep at first base, so they don't need to rush him. This is a smart player, however, that should be able to adjust and push himself to the majors in 2010. This is an aggressive ranking for Perez, given his limited experience at the upper levels, but you can make the case that he has the best stuff of any left-handed starter in the minors. The Rangers have a southpaw with the total package, and given his 92-96 mph fastball, feel for his secondary pitches and mound presence, this is one of the few prospects that can truly be projected as a future ace. After signing late, Scheppers proved he was healthy and worth the hype with an often electrifying showing in the Arizona Fall League. Consistently pitching in the upper-90s out of the bullpen, there is now some debate over what his role should be. His size, pitchability and, of course, raw stuff should allow him to succeed as a starter or a reliever.
