In light of Special Assistant Ramon Pena’s firing, lets take a look at some of the Mets top international prospects performances this season…
1. Fernando Martinez – signed July 2, 2005 (pre-Pena). Made his MLB debut at age 20, after tearing the cover off the ball in May in AAA.
2. Jenrry Mejia – signed April 4, 2007 by Ramon Pena, Ismael Cruz & Sandi Rosario. A true find. Mejia put up a 1.97 ERA in the FSL and then struck out more than a batter an inning as a 19-year old in AA.
3. Wilmer Flores – signed 8/6/07 by Ismael Cruz, Sandy Johnson & Robert Alfonzo. Hit .264/.305/.332 as a 17/18-year old in the SAL in 2009.
