Three Mets pitchers on Baseball America’s Prospect Hot Sheet

Three Mets minor league pitchers appeared on Baseball America’s Prospect Hot Sheet this week (Badler, April 11).

Rafael Montero showed up at No. 8 on the list, Jacob deGrom appeared “In The Team Photo,” and Akeel Morris got a note in the “Helium” section.

“Montero toed the Vegas rubber in his first two starts this year and continued to show exceptional command—his 14.0 SO/BB ratio ranks second in the PCL—while striking out one-third of batters faced,” Ben Badler wrote.

The 25-year-old deGrom was mentioned as a future big leaguer, while Morris was mentioned for striking out 11 of the 12 outs he’s recorded this season.
