The latest edition of the Mets' Top 10 prospects in Baseball America was recently unveiled. Steven Matz, who was brilliant this season in limited action, is #1 on the list, one spot up from last year's list.

In addition to Matz, four other prospects are holdovers from last year's list, including shortstop Amed Rosario, who climbed from #6 last year to #2 this year, shortstop Gavin Cecchini, up from #10 last year to #4 this year, outfielder Brandon Nimmo, who fell from #3 to #5, and pitcher Marcos Molina, who climbed from #9 to #6—though the list was published before Molina's Tommy John surgery was public knowledge.

The five newcomers to the list are first baseman Dominic Smith (#3), the team's 1st-round pick in 2013, middle infielder Luis Carpio (#7), who at just 18 years old hit .304 with a .372 OBP this season, outfielder Desmond Lindsay (#8), this year's 2nd round draft pick, infielder Matt Reynolds (#9), perhaps best known as Ruben Tejada's playoff replacement, and outfielder Wuilmer Becerra (#10), who hit .290 with nine home runs and 16 steals in Single-A Savannah this year.

Here's the BA top ten:

  1. Steven Matz, LHP
  2. Amed Rosario, SS
  3. Dominic Smith, 1B
  4. Gavin Cecchini, SS
  5. Brandon Nimmo, OF
  6. Marcos Molina, RHP
  7. Luis Carpio, SS/2B
  8. Desmond Lindsay, OF
  9. Matt Reynolds, SS/2B
  10. Wuilmer Becerra, OF
