New York Mets: Top Five Prospects

5. Amed Rosario, SS, 20

From a raw talent perspective, Rosario looks like a mini Jose Reyes or Carlos Gomez. He has a package of tools that would make most scouts drool.

While his bat speed sets him apart from everybody else, he’s also got a great glove, is extremely physical, is a slight base-stealing threat, and projects to have raw power. While his bat isn’t very good yet, at just 20 years old he’s still got plenty of time to bolster an underwhelming stat line.
