Welcome to the 2nd Annual Amazin' Avenue Mets Community Prospect List. Every poll will include eight candidates for the next spot on the list, as well as a separate group of testers. Testers will be rotated into polls with each new installation, replacing each poll's winner and any name that's not getting votes. After a few rounds, if a candidate on the ballot receives a decidedly low vote total , they'll be replaced on the ballot by a tester. But for the first couple polls, I won't remove candidates with these low totals
With 40% of the vote, Fernando Martinez is the consensus choice for #2 prospect in the Mets' system. Of course, he's bordering on exhausting his rookie eligibility, so if/when his prospect status expires, I'll take him off the list. Replacing him in the poll is Steven Matz, who still has yet to throw a pitch professionally a year after he was drafted. Hopefully, he'll return from Tommy John surgery with a robotic arm. To recap:
- Wilmer Flores
- Fernando Martinez
As always, voice opinions for the next ballot spot in the comments, and vote away.
