MLB.com released its annual list of the top 30 Mets prospects on Tuesday. The number one spot on the list unsurprisingly belonged to Amed Rosario, who has been unanimously ranked as the best prospect in the Mets organization this year. MLB.com had previously ranked Rosario as the fifth-best prospect in all of baseball.
Also of note was Robert Gsellman, who ranked only fifth on the list, behind Dominic Smith, Justin Dunn, and Thomas Szapucki. This is in contrast to several other lists this offseason, including those by John Sickels, Baseball Prospectus, and even ours at Amazin’ Avenue, all of which ranked Gsellman second, behind Rosario.
Additionally, MLB.com ranked Gavin Cecchini ahead of Brandon Nimmo, putting Cecchini in the seventh spot and Nimmo in the eighth spot. This disagrees with the aforementioned publications, all of whom had Nimmo ahead Cecchini.
MLB.com’s list also surprised by including Peter Alonso in the top 10, over prospects such as Thomas Nido and Wuilmer Becerra, both of whom made other top 10 lists.
Towards the bottom of the list, Ricardo Cespedes came in at 19, Josh Smoker was listed at 20, Chris Flexen was ranked at 26, and T.J. Rivera got a nod at 30.
