The Mets' system got a boost with their terrific Draft in June but took a serious hit when they traded pitching prospects Anthony Kay and Simeon Woods Richardson to the Blue Jays for Marcus Stroman. Here's how the top prospects are performing, with MLB.com system rankings for each player in parentheses...
Ronny Mauricio, SS, Low-A Columbia -- ETA 2022 (No. 1)
Mauricio, who we recently profiled here, is a switch-hitter who the Mets gave $2.1 million in 2017 as an international free agent.
After being on fire for the better part of a month, Mauricio is in the midst of a huge funk, with zero hits in his last 23 at-bats. Overall, he is hitting .273/.311/.366 with four homers, four triples, and 20 doubles in 105 games this season.
