The offseason is exciting because it lets fans think about the future, imagining how their favorite team can improve in the coming season. Baseball America adds to fans’ offseason excitement with its offseason top-10 prospect lists for every team.
With the Mets’ big signings of older and more established players like Bartolo Colon and Curtis Granderson, fans have reason to be hopeful for the 2014 season; however, they should also be excited for the future with some of the young talent the Mets boast in their farm system.
The most annoying thing about prospects is the uncertainty that comes with them, whether they will reach their ceiling and not knowing when they will start helping their big league squad. Presented here is an attempt to quell some of that uncertainty, as I project the major league arrival dates for Baseball America’s top-10 New York Mets prospects.
Baseball America’s list is composed of all players with rookie eligibility, so some players on this list have already reached the majors. For those players, I will project where they will be on Opening Day 2015.
