Prospect Profile: 2B Vinny Siena

A 14th round draft pick out of UConn, Siena is a frustrating player, a live bat with the potential to hit very well, but is terribly inconsistent. Another 2nd baseman in the pipeline.

Prospect Profile: RHP Witt Haggard

A 2015 draftee with not much experience on the mound but a bit of athleticism. Formerly a football player, Haggard brings some rawness to the mound, but could bring some upside.

Prospect Profile: RHP Andrew Church

Probably one of the top resurgence stories in 2016, this pitcher broke out after three seasons of underperformance and showed why the Mets selected him in the 2nd round. The Vegas-born Church had been ineffective through his first three seasons in short season league, and looked early as though he was going to be a definitive bust. He’s made a statement this year to not be counted out yet.

Prospect Profile: RHP Justin Dunn

I was giddy leading up to the draft, down right giddy. Usually men aren’t supposed to get “giddy”, but the draft is my favorite non denominational holiday. I absolutely love the draft. I had been doing countless draft reports, pouring over scouting reports of every player, seeing all the mock drafts I could, and came to the conclusion that the Mets were picking Wake Forest 3rd Baseman Will Craig for the 19th overall pick. On the night of the draft, the Mets passed on Craig and surprised me, grabbing Dunn, a right hander from Long Island, who was drafted out of Boston College. According to the Mets, they really wanted him, having him higher on their board, and I’m going to show you why.

Prospect Profile: 3B Eudor Garcia

Players who use PED’s are often rejected and ostracized by fans…frankly I don’t care. I’m going to admit, I’m still a fan of Garcia. His bat is very interesting, and if the profiled bat was in your lineup, you’d be very happy. After being suspended and then usurped on the 3rd base depth chart by David Thompson, Garcia must come back with a vengeance and show that his ability isn’t chemically enhanced.

Profile: LHP Seth Davis

A Senior Sign from 2015 who was drafted in the 29th round out of a small school in Illinois. This little lefty has been pretty effective in the lower levels of the minors as a reliever, and will likely stay as a reliever. He has been climbing step by step through the levels, and if he continues, may be an effective relief option moving forward.

Prospect Profile: RHP Jimmy Duff

A lesser known relief pitcher from New York who was drafted and signed by his favorite team. He struggled last season after being promoted to Hi-A St. Lucie. He’s a tall guy who induces ground balls.

I’m not sure what to make of Jimmy Duff. Duff is just that kind of guy you really want to root for, since he grew up a fan of his hometown team and now he plays for them. However, he hasn’t been particularly effective in reduction of hits and striking out people.

Prospect Profile: C Patrick Mazeika

A 2015 draft pick, Mazeika is an older guy who has been raking, and is from the same college as Jacob deGrom: Stetson University. Mazeika is questionable at catcher right now, but has been seemingly excellent as a hitter, especially in terms of being very disciplined.
