A very interesting article today from Fangraphs takes a look at two Gnats pitching prospects. While their report was not as high on Rainy, the reports on Ynoa were something all Mets fans should be excited about.
Lara is a decent pitching prospect, but Ynoa is the gem of the Savannah pitching staff. Look for the 19-year old to vault up Mets mid-season prospect lists and into the top eight overall by season’s end.
With the depth the Mets are developing, they have a chance to not only have a bunch of these pitching prospects work out but should be more protected against bust. This should also allow them to have enough guys to bring in the impact bat they desperately need.
