Top Prospects Abound in St. Lucie in 2012

With a broad mix of talent throughout the St. Lucie roster in 2012, there's a very good chance we'll be hearing some of these names for a long time to come.

Mets Minor League ST Report - 3/21


ZEPHYRS 4, BISONS 4 Most notably, RHP Matt Harvey got the start in this one and allowed three runs over six innings. Offesnviely, the star was the French-Canadian C Jean-Luc Blaquiere who blasted a two-run shot. 1B Allan Dykstra went 2-for-3 with a double and two RBI's, while 3B Zach Lutz went 1-for-3. SUNS 8, B-METS 3 RHP Gonzalez Germen got the start and though he was dominant through 2+ innings -- see, 5 K's -- he left in the third with two men on. RHP Taylor Whitenton promptly allowed the next batter to homer and the rout was on. OF Darrell Ceciliani was the offensive star in this one, going 3-for-5 with a double and a triple while the hot-hitting OF Cory Vaughn knocked his second homer of the spring. METS 3, CARDINALS 3 As usual, very few details about the A-level baseball aside from the few key participants, including LHP Carlos Vazquez, RHP Marcos Camarena, RHP Jacob DeGrom, RHP Julian Hilario and last but certainly not least LHP Steven Matz. According to first-hand reports Matz "looked really good", allowing one run and striking out one in one inning. Offensively, the game saw a number of notable outfielders in Brandon Nimmo, Gilbert Gomez and Joe Tuschak.

Four More Mets Prospects Assigned to AFL


Beyond their first group of players, according to ESPNny, the Mets will also be sending LHP Robert Carson, RHP Taylor Whitenton, 3B Jefry Marte and C Juan Centeno out to AZ this October. This will be Carson's second consecutive AFL season. In 24 starts with Double-A Binghamton, the 22-year old lefty has posted a disappointing 4.99 ERA with a .299 opp. average in 2011. Whitenton has always flashed major league stuff but this year the 23-year old former 39th rounder sharpened his command and is suddenly in the prospect discussion. He is currently tops in the SAL in opp. average (.192) and second in ERA (2.51). After getting off to a scorching April with Hi-A St. Lucie, 25th ranked prospect in the AA Preseason Top 50 Jefry Marte's development has continued to stagnate. Since April he hasn't done much on his way to a .249/.314/.346 season line. Finally, catcher Juan Centeno was not considered much of a prospect so the defensive specialist mostly backed up Francisco Pena in 2011. But the 21-year old has begun to open eyes thanks to a real knack for contact, striking out just 22 times in 2011.
