New York Mets' Top 10 Prospects Rankings, Spring Forecasts
Steve Mitchell-USA TODAY Sports

Over the last decade, the New York Mets have used their first-round pick(s) to target both experienced college players and high-risk, high-reward high-school prospects. Thus far, they’ve had considerably more success with the former than the latter. Through it all, the organization has found stability in the international scouting realm, as four of the team’s top-10 prospects are a product of either the Dominican Republic or Venezuela.

Headed into the offseason, the Mets’ farm system was ranked in the bottom third among all organizations due to their lack of impact talent beyond Zack Wheeler and Wilmer Flores. However, after dealing ace R.A. Dickey to the Blue Jays in exchange for top-50 prospects Travis d’Arnaud and Noah Syndergaard during this winter, the system is unquestionably headed in the right direction.

Although it’s unlikely that the Mets will compete in 2013, there’s still plenty to be excited about with Wheeler and d’Arnaud poised to spend most of the year in the major leagues.
