15. Estevan Florial
14. Miguel Andujar
13. Brandon Nimmo
12. Greg Bird
11. Yoenis Cespedes
What Gimenez is to the Mets is what Estevan Florial is to the New York Yankees. With most of the kids now in the Bronx, the talented outfielder is the next in line. The major question surrounding the kid is his Yanks future. Will he act as that critical trade chip this coming July?
An easy case can be made that No. 15 through 12 area ll more valuable than Yoenis Cespedes. These days, Yo’s on the shelf more than left-field. The man can’t stay healthy. But we give him the No. 11 nod with one last-ditch salute to his hitting and throwing prowess.
By this time next year, if things remain the same, he’ll be near No. 20 with his age and money not overcoming “good” play on the field.
The guys ahead of Yo vary from Greg Bird, who needs to also remain on the field, to Brandon Nimmo, who’s shot himself out of a cannon this season like a young stud, and Miguel Andujar, who feels like the real deal over at third base.
