New York Mets: Ranking the Top 10 Prospects

Matt Reynolds – Reynolds is a very interesting player moving forwards for the Mets. In my opinion he beats out Gavin Cecchini based mostly off of the tools he bring to the plate. Reynolds tore it up at AA Binghamton hitting .355 in 58 games. He carried his success to Las Vegas, where he continued his success batting .333. With the need for an everyday shortstop, Reynolds could see himself in the big leagues in no time. There’s no doubt that Reynolds will be able to hit in the majors for above average ability, but I don’t think you will see Reynolds as a starting shortstop. His defense is average at best and he doesn’t have the range or arm that is a must for a shortstop. This being said, he could change positions but would be a below average player at second base. I think Reynolds could be an asset to the Mets if they weren’t to acquire another shortstop. He could take some inning here and there at short, and possible be a pinch hitter down the stretch.
