Three Mets prospects make Baseball America's top 100 list for 2016

They are the three players you'd expect to be on the list at this point.

Baseball America has published its list of the top 100 prospects in baseball for the 2016 season, and three Mets are included on it: left-handed pitcher Steven Matz at 13, shortstop Amed Rosario at 58, and first baseman Dominic Smith at 79.

Those rankings are fairly similar to the Baseball Prospectus rankings for the upcoming season, though BA lists Rosario quite a bit higher than Prospectus did. The Matz and Smith rankings are very similar, though, and are a stark contrast to Keith Law's list, which had Smith ranked 29th—ahead of Matz—and Rosario even higher than he is on the BA list.

On our list of the Mets' top twenty-five prospects for 2016, Matz ranked first and Rosario ranked second, but Smith ranked fifth, behind Gavin Cecchini and Brandon Nimmo. And if you're looking to read more about Smith, who is certainly the most polarizing Mets prospect right now, check out Jeffrey Paternostro's prospect debate about him over at Baseball Prospectus.
