DateQuestionAnswer
2016-10-06 14:00:00 (link to chat)Given that he hit .333 in the regular season, does T.J. Rivera make the Mets top 10?
(Peter from Pittsburgh)
Jarrett and I talked about this on the pod, and it ties back in with the Gsellman question, and really any guy who is just on this side prospect eligible. I think it is easier to see Gsellman or Berrios pitch in the majors and say it "looks right" or "looks wrong." Not that guys can't improve or regress after, but the stuff is the stuff. With hitters the first 100 at bats doesn't necessarily tell you as much. I think Rivera is overmatched by better velo and better sliders, and the spray chart will get out, and the power is overstated because he clustered some wall scrapers. He'll also be 28 next year and is not a good defender, even at second. I was probably low on him throughout his minor league career for a variety of reasons, and he may be more a 4 than a 3, but that guy also isn't top 10 guy in this system. I wouldn't go crazy if someone ranked him there though. (Jeffrey Paternostro)
