The Call-Up: Amed Rosario

0

Jarrett Seidler and Wilson Karaman

Well, the Mets have at *least* one thing to look forward to now.

The Situation: The Mets are staggering towards the bottom of the NL like a 3 AM drunk, sitting at 48-55 and having just dealt two of their few players performing well, first baseman Lucas Duda and closer Addison Reed. Particularly troubling has been the play on the left side of the infield, where fading veterans Asdrubal Cabrera and Jose Reyes have combined to provide horrific defense and meager offense. With Cabrera having moved off short permanently to rotate between second and third and Reyes battling an arm injury after once again proving incapable of handling the defensive rigors of short, the six spot is open in every conceivable sense. Oh yeah, and the Mets have the best prospect left in the minors, a potential stud defender at short who is currently hitting .328 in Triple-A. What the heck took so long again?

There were seven candidates for the top spot. How did we arrive at No. 1?

It’s a fun time in baseball, with a lot of elite talent floating around, much of it close to the majors. We discussed seven of those elite talents as potential top overall prospects for this midseason list—not surprisingly, the top seven guys on the list. I’d suggest that the top eight or nine prospects (depending on your feelings about Tommy John recovery with regard to Alex Reyes) form a top tier, and they could be jumbled in nearly any order without being abjectly wrong. But part of the job here is to find an order in the mayhem, and after some great internal debate, we came up with a list. Here’s how that top prospect debate developed...

Candidate: Gleyber Torres

A look at five prospects who should get called up.

We’ve started the Midseason Top 50 process here at Baseball Prospectus. There is a ways to go—so far we are only at the point where we have sorted a draft in a car heading to Camden Yards and then were unable to explain to the rest of the staff why Joshua Lowe ended up on it—but one of the hardest parts of the process is pegging who will actually be eligible. We only consider players in the minors at the time of publication, and now that we are well past the Super 2 safe harbor date, teams don't have service time manipulation reasons to keep their best upper-level prospects in the minors (well, maybe one of them, which we’ll get to). So let's take a look at some of the top names who may send us scrambling to find more top 50 prospects at the last minute (I guess Lowe still has a chance after all).

Prospect Profile: Amed Rosario

0

Jessica Quiroli

Rosario, a 20-year-old Mets shortstop prospect, is stepping up in the spotlight.

Tampa, FL - New York Mets fans are weathering heavy storms and there seems to be no sign of them letting up.

In the midst of news that Jose Reyes was returning to the fold, after a charge of domestic violence while with the Colorado Rockies, the team’s pitching problems suddenly got worse. The team announced that Steven Matz and Noah Syndergaard have bone spurs, shuffling an already uncertain deck. Reyes' return certainly doesn’t quell the concern about the Mets' future. The Matz and Syndergaard news only added to the list of questions. The natural reaction for any team’s fans is to turn their hopeless gaze to the farm. And while there isn’t a ton of promise on the prospect front either, there are the glimmers, as there always are; those players in even the most tepid system that emerge in unexpected ways or rise to lofty expectations. File Amed Rosario under both categories.

Monday Morning Ten Pack: May 2, 2016

Notes on Yaisel Sierra, Ozhaino Albies, Edwin Diaz, and more.

Yaisel Sierra, RHP, Los Angeles Dodgers (High-A Rancho Cucamonga)
The Dodgers kept their $30 million man in extended spring training to start the season before transferring the 24-year-old to Rancho for his professional debut on Saturday. His first taste of competition in a couple years featured plenty of rust. His slender, athletic frame is on the smaller side, and while his movements were easy, he struggled to repeat his delivery and find his release point for most of the night.

The motion is low-octane, with a fluid takeaway into a clean arm swing, and he showed above-average arm speed. Most of his problems on this night stemmed from a poor drive: he didn’t leverage his weight particularly well, staying uphill as he pushed forward and failing to fire his hips. That created drag to his release point and a wildly inconsistent finish with his lower half.

Monday Morning Ten Pack: Candidates for the Top 101

2

BP Prospect Staff

This week's Ten Pack looks at prospects who could wind up on the Top 101 next year.

Amed Rosario, SS, New York Mets (High-A Port St. Lucie)
After an aggressive placement to start 2015saw Rosario skip Low-A and head right to the Florida State League, the 19-year-old shortstop's talent has been on display throughout the first half of the season. As the no. 78 prospect in our off-season Top 101, a case could be made for including him within the last couple slots of the just released mid-season Top 50, but regardless this prospect's stock has jumped forward as we hit the midpoint of the season.

Rosario is currently a top 101 prospect in the game, and barring some kind of unforeseen circumstances will be a shoe-in for our list this coming off-season. So, why highlight him? He is an interesting case study because of how advanced he is, with a good dose of physical development likely to come. Standing 6-foot-2, Rosario currently is on the wiry/thin side. Though the expectation isn't that he'll suddenly morph into a monster, strength is going to come in time, and with strength there's going to be an enhancement to the overall offensive game.
