The New York Mets have had a tough season but top prospect Amed Rosario is giving them many reasons to believe help is on the way.

Any news associated with the New York Mets has been mostly negative since the season began in early April. However, top prospect Amed Rosario continues to shine in AAA.
There have been questions about whether his defense was major league ready, having committed errors at a worrying pace in Las Vegas. However, the coarse Vegas infield is not friendly for defenders and should Rosario to make a smoother transition to the bigs.
As soon as the Super Two deadline passes, it’s likely he gets the call to the show shortly after. The Mets are mired in what looks like a lost season and will need to give the fans a reason to show up to Citi Field.
Most shortstops with Rosario’s 6’2 frame don’t often stick at short but he has the natural athleticism to man the position with ease a la the Astros’s Carlos Correa. His arm strength and instincts were on full display in the above video, too.
When makes his inevitable debut later this season, let’s hope he can avoid the disabled list unlike most of the current roster.[H/T @Astromets31]
