Every Monday, we'll be taking a look at how the Mets' top prospects (their MLB.com Mets Top 10 rankings are in parenthesis) are faring.


Andrés Giménez, SS, Double-A Binghamton (No. 2) -- ETA 2020

Pete Alonso remains listed No. 1 on MLB.com's list of top Mets prospects, but he sure seems well entrenched in the majors given his outstanding start to the season. So Giménez tops the Mets' farm system, and it was a good week for the shortstop in Double-A Binghamton.

The 20-year-old went 9-for-25 in six games, recording one homer, three doubles, three RBI, three walks and two stolen bases along with six strikeouts. He takes a five-game hitting streak into Monday's game at Akron, and he had three hits in two of those games. He did commit an error in his last game, his second of the season.

The standout performance came on Thursday, when he went 3-for-4 with a homer and two doubles. The homer was a blast to right field which left the stadium and went "across the street," according to the MiLB video description.

Tim Tebow sent to minors 00:01:54
The best of Tebow's media availability after he learned he is headed to Syracuse. He even is asked about the Jets compared to the Mets.

With Opening Day 16 days away, the Mets made their third round of Spring Training roster cuts on Tuesday. 

Right-handed pitchers Paul Sewald and Jacob Rhame have been optioned to minor league camp, and Arquimedes Caminero, Andrés Giménez, Dilson Herrera, Rymer Liriano, Ali Sánchez and Tim Tebow have all been reassigned to minor league camp.

None of the players cut from camp on Tuesday were in contention for spots on the roster, and many are expected to begin the season with Triple-A Syracuse -- including Tebow.

Andres Gimenez ranged deep and far to his left, well into the outfield grass to field Gabriel Guerrero's hard-hit ground ball, and then with quick feet and a strong arm he made a difficult play look remarkably easy.

So much so that I felt compelled to text a scout who was at Friday's Mets-Marlins game in Port St. Lucie and ask for a comp:

Syndergaard out of sync in start 00:00:51
Noah Syndergaard had a mediocre start but he and Mickey Callaway didn't seem too worried.

A few Mets hit the long ball on Friday afternoon, but the Marlins' offense was too potent in a 10-3 loss at First Data Field. >> Box score

Five things to know about Friday's game...

1) Noah Syndergaard got the start for the Mets, and though it began well, the ending didn't have the same result. Syndergaard allowed four runs, three earned on six hits including two long balls -- one three-run jack from former Met Neil Walker and a solo shot from JT Riddle. Though Miami made the best his mistakes, Syndergaard struck out eight along the way with his slider looking good.

Mets prospect Gimenez at camp 00:00:46
Mets shortstop prospect Andres Gimenez works out at training camp in Port St. Lucie

Spring Training is always a good chance to look at a team's top prospects, and the Mets will have no shortage of young talent in Port St. Lucie this year. 

One of the most intriguing players is the team's top prospect (according to MLB.com) in SS Andres Gimenez, and he was seen fielding grounders and taking batting practice at the team facility on Saturday.

The 20-year-old played in High-A and Double-A ball last season, where he hit .282 and .277 respectively. He is highly regarded for not just his success at the plate, but he is a sure-handed defender as well.
