Literally the forgotten first baseman in the Mets organization, who has done nothing but hit, and sometimes near the caliber of their top 1B Dominic Smith. Oberste has essentially been eternally tied to Smith from the day he started full season ball and was drafted seven rounds after him in 2013. He has played the last three years as second fiddle to the top prospect across A-ball, Advanced-A, and Double-A. Oberste has his own strengths and abilities, but an uphill battle to climb.
