The High-A St. Lucie Mets will send four Mets prospects to the Florida State League All-Star game this year: shortstop Amed Rosario, outfielder Wuilmer Becerra, catcher Tomas Nido, and left-handed relief pitcher Alberto Baldonado. The game will take place on Saturday, June 18 in Fort Myers.
The 20-year-old Rosario came into the season as our top prospect in the Mets system—aside from Steven Matz, who had been in the big leagues since last July but didn't accrue enough playing time to lose his prospect eligibility. He got off to a fantastic start in April and followed that up with a decent month in May. He's hit .301/.352/.455 with three home runs, 10 stolen bases in 15 attempts, seven doubles, and eight triples. Two of those triples came in last night's game. And two of his three home runs have been hit at Tradition Field, which is a difficult park in which to hit home runs.
Becerra came into the season ranked seventh on our list, and he's hit very, very well so far this year. He's just 21 years old and came over to the Mets with Noah Syndergaard, Travis d'Arnaud, and John Buck in the R.A. Dickey trade. He hasn't hit for much power—and hasn't hit a home run yet this year—but has a .338/.366/.409 line for the season.
Neither Nido nor Baldonado made our top twenty-five coming into the seasonm, but both have performed well for St. Lucie. Nido, who recently turned 22, has hit .296/.329/.408 on the season. The 23-year-old Baldonado has a 1.96 ERA in 23.0 innings with 26 strikeouts and 10 walks between St. Lucie and Double-A Binghamton, where he was recently promoted.
