With the trade deadline over, the New York Mets kept all of their prospects. While they could still deal some of them over the offseason, right now is a safe time to look at which players have a chance of helping the team in 2015.
The three players I chose are the ones I deem as having the highest possible impact once they are called up to the majors. I haven’t included players who have already made their major league debut—like Rafael Montero—or players who could contribute but do so in a role-playing capacity—like Matt Reynolds.
I also haven’t included Kevin Plawecki, who could be an impact player if Travis d’Arnaud goes down with an injury. I didn’t include him because I believe that as long as d’Arnaud is healthy, he will be given every opportunity as the first-string catcher, and that only an injury would make Plawecki the full-time starter.
So here are the three Mets prospects who will help the 2015 Mets if and when they are given a starting job.
