A couple weeks ago, Baseball Prospectus released its Top 101 prospect list, and three Mets were among those listed. Left-handed pitcher Steven Matz was ranked as the ninth best prospect in baseball, his highest ranking on any of the major national prospect lists. He was ranked 13th on Baseball America's list and 37th on Keith Law's list. Matz, who is still prospect-eligible despite pitching a good chunk of the 2015 season in the big leagues, is the only one of the Mets' nationally ranked who will definitely see major league playing time this year.

First base prospect Dominic Smith came in at 86th. He ranked 29th on Law's list but ranked 79th on Baseball America's. Smith, the 11th overall pick in the 2013 draft,  is likely to start to the year in Double-A Binghamton.

Amed Rosario came in at the tail end of the BP list at 96th, compared to 58th for BA and 42nd on Law's list. Rosario played a full season at High-A St. Lucie in 2015 before joining Binghamton briefly in early September. Rosario is entering his age-20 season, making him quite young at either level, and has been impressive with the glove thus far in his professional career.

Matz, Smith, and Rosario came in first, fifth, and second, respectively, on the 2016 Amazin' Avenue Top 25 prospect list.
