10. C Tomas Nido
Scouting grades: Hit: 45 | Power: 45 | Run: 30 | Arm: 50 | Field: 45 | Overall: 45Although the Mets haven’t had much success with catching prospects in recent years – ie. Travis d’Arnaud, Kevin Plawecki, Josh Thole – Nido could knock them off that schneid.
He possesses solid power, but has been known to sell out a bit, pulling pitches too often. Minor league coaches have worked with Nido on this issue and it has brought major dividends, as the 22-year-old hit .320 with 23 doubles and seven home runs in 90 games last season at High-A St. Lucie.
Nido’s glove does leave something to be desired, but he has a strong arm – a virtue that a Mets staff historically bad at holding runners on would love to see in Queens.
