New Baseball-Wide Top Prospect Lists: Sickels and Fangraphs

There are a pair of new comprehensive top prospect lists in baseball out this week from John Sickels at minorleagueball.com and Marc Hulet at Fangraphs.

Sickels puts three Mets in the top 22: C Travis d’Arnaud (#13), RHP Zack Wheeler (#15) and RHP Noah Syndergaard (#22) and two guys in the back half of his list: RHP Michael Fulmer (#86) and INF Wilmer Flores (118). Flores is ranked one spot behind Gavin Cecchini’s brother Garin, a Red Sox farmhand.

Hulet flips the order of the top two Mets putting Wheeler at #9 and d’Arnaud at #11, differences that are essentially insignificat in the grand scheme of things. Bottom line, the two are top 15 prospects in baseball. Hulet is more reserved on Syndergaard, slotting him at #46, behind Kyle Crick. I saw Crick in 2012 – he’s a big kid with a big arm – sorta like Syndergaard.
