Justin Turner edition.
I had him ranked as the Mets’ #17 prospect. Here’s what I wrote at the time.
Why Ranked Here: Turner went into 2011 Spring Training battling for the Mets second base job. I view him as the most capable of the right-handed hitting options and a worthwhile platoon-mate with Daniel Murphy. With Luis Castillo’s release, Turner is a small step closer to the Opening Day roster.
