The New York Mets will showcase three of their organization’s top prospects and play host to the 2013 All-Star Futures Game on Sunday, July 14 at Citi Field.
Starting pitcher Noah Syndergaard and outfielder Brandon Nimmo will represent the Mets on the U.S. team, while starter Rafael Montero will pitch for the World team.
With Zack Wheeler being promoted to the Mets’ starting rotation this season, Syndergaard is now the top-pitching prospect in New York’s farm system.
In just over two seasons, Rafael Montero has ascended from Low-A to Triple-A and could make his major league debut later this summer.
Finally, 2011 first-round draft pick, Brandon Nimmo has the tools to be an everyday player for the Mets, but he has a long road to go before his big league call-up.
Here’s a scouting report for each of New York’s prospects that will take part in Sunday’s Futures Game.
