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: 2B/SS Luis Carpio

Another top prospect to look out for, Carpio burst out as a 17 year old in Rookie-League Kingsport, and was poised to make the jump to Full-Season Ball last season but fell to shoulder surgery. When healthy, Carpio is possibly one of the best middle infield prospects in the system, and is definitely one to watch at 19 years old.

Prospect Profile: RHP Ricky Knapp

A forgotten arm, Knapp is an interesting starter with a little upside, but the ability to eat innings. Drafted in the 8th round, he was expected to move quickly, but hit a few snags. He did very well in the middle minors in 2016 and is poised to possibly help the big club in 2017.

Look at Luis Guillorme The Last Few Days!

Two times this week, Luis Guillorme has dazzled the Mets world as an unlikely source of bewildering displays of Amazin’ handiwork. On Thursday, Guillorme made an impossible catch…and he wasn’t even on the field…and it wasn’t even a ball.

He caught a flying bat, that was thrown by Adeiny Hechavarria, who accidentally let go after a nasty Robert Gsellman slider.

Prospect Profile: LHP Kelly Secrest

A lefty relief pitcher that has shot up the ladder for the Mets, but struggled a bit in Double-A. A senior sign in the 10th round, Secrest has been decent in the lower levels, but needs to take the next step in Double-A. Hey, when we cover all of these players, we cover ALL of these players.

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: 1B Dash Winningham

Thinking about Winningham reminds me of an interaction I had with a co-writer before the 2014 draft. The writer asked me if I knew anything about the draft. I said yeah. He asked if when players get told by scouts about interest, and that the Mets were interested in someone he knew, does that actually translate into them being drafted. I said “of course, who is this guy?” Turns out to be Winningham, a first baseman with a lot of power.
