Prospect Profile: 3B/1B Jhoan Urena

Pronounced Jo-han, your-ayn-nya has been with the organization for a while, and has looked promising at times before injuries derailed him. Honestly, I do not know what to do with him, especially since he was so high caliber to begin with.

Prospect Profile: 3B David Thompson

Right now, the saddest thing going on is the continued deterioration of David Wright. For many of us, it’s a heartbreaking experience, knowing that Spinal Stenosis has brought down our once excellent third base thumper. Probably the closest starting caliber 3rd Baseman to the Major Leagues for the Mets, Thompson has a lot of athleticism, but a lot of questions too. Thompson has a possibility of being what replaces Wright in the Majors in the future, but he’s got a few questions around him as well.

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.

Prospect Profile: 3B Blake Tiberi

I realized that third basemen haven’t been covered yet… at all, so I’m going to address that in a line this week, starting with Tiberi, who was drafted in the third round in 2016. Tiberi I can safely state currently has a profile to former Met Daniel Murphy
