New York Mets: Ranking the Top 10 Prospects

Kevin Plawecki – With Travis d’Arnaud being the huge catching prospect for the last 2 years, Plawecki went unnoticed. Now the Mets have yet another potential starting catcher. They could use Plawecki along with some starting pitching to acquire an outfielder, but if they decide to keep him they will have excellent catching depth. Plawecki has hit close to .300 at every level of the minors, showing us he will make solid contact. The power is below average meaning 15 or less home runs in a year. Personally, 12 home runs a year from a catcher is better than what most teams have, so that kept Plawecki high on my list. Plawecki isn’t a catcher who is going to ‘wow’ you behind the plate. He’s an average catcher who has really good baseball knowledge. I wouldn’t move him from catching because he would be a below average player at any other position.
