Prospect Profile: SS Amed Rosario

Mets fans have been waiting since 2011 for a replacement for Jose Reyes. Reyes was dazzling, with blazing speed, great hitting, and a flamboyant attitude, and once he was gone, the Mets missed him and tried their best to replace him, only to fall short.  The year that Reyes started playing elsewhere, the Mets signed a 16 year old Dominican Shortstop who grew up idolizing Reyes by the name of Amed Rosario. Rosario received the highest bonus for his age bracket in franchise history, and became a rising star immediately. Over the next few years, his hype grew, and he improved greatly over time, and then exploded in Hi-A and Double-A. He gained national attention, and became a top-10 prospect in the MLB. But, while Reyes has returned to the Mets, Amed Rosario still looks to be the team’s long term answer at shortstop.

Prospect Profile: SS Luis Guillorme

Recently invited to big league camp for spring training is little-known Guillorme, a small shortstop with excellent defense who often plays above the sum of his parts.  Guillorme is that guy you like despite what his actual ceiling holds, and provides a great show in the field.

Next on our list of players for the Columbia Fireflies is a college shortstop with a pretty rough debut with the Brooklyn Cyclones. Honestly, I have no idea what to make of the guy in general, Following a trend after P.J. Conlon. Causing curiosity yet?
