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: 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 Harol Gonzalez

It’s about time, Harol is incredibly advanced and I should have written about him earlier. Last season, Harol went to the Short Season-A Brooklyn Cyclones and simply dominated this past season and looks poised to start in full season in 2017. Despite stuff and size, Gonzalez is an excellent pitcher with a bit of promise, and will show it this season at full season ball.

Prospect Profile: 1B/3B Matt Oberste

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.
