#10: Luis Guillorme. 2013 – 10th round.

Guillorme has been putting up some really good numbers in the minors. Entering 2018, he’s spent five seasons with the Mets and above .280 in three of those seasons, with .318 being his best.

Last season was one of his best seasons. He hit .283 with 23 doubles and 74 runs scored over the course of more than 600 plate appearances. He made his debut in 2018 but wasn’t able to pull off those same numbers. So far, he’s hitting below .180 as an MLB hitter.

#9: Logan Verrett. 2011 – 3rd round.

Logan Verrett was a lot of fun to watch. If it wasn’t for his skill, it was for his ability to come back to the Mets. He spent three seasons in the Mets system, with an ERA that hovered between 3 and 4.

Entering the 2015 season, the Orioles claimed Verrett in the Rule 5 draft. Then the Rangers claimed him and he was eventually returned to the Mets in May, though he already made his debut with the Rangers.

In 2015, with the Mets, his ERA was 3.03 through 14 games. He returned in 2016 but didn’t have as much luck with a 5.20 ERA before going back to the Orioles.

#8: Robert Gsellman: 2011 – 13th round.

Gsellman hasn’t been the most consistent when it came to his talents, but there have been plenty of stretches where he’s been great with the Mets. In 2016, his first season, he was amazing with a 2.42 ERA but in 2017, his numbers tanked a bit, with his ERA dropping to 5.19.

In 2018, he’s already on pace to have a much better season. He’s 5-2 with a 4.37 ERA and the highest K/9 rate of his career so far.

#7: Peter Alonso. 2016 – 2nd round.

There isn’t much that we can say about Peter aside for he’ll probably be the first baseman of the future. In 2016 he hit .321 with five home runs in 30 games. Last season he hit .289 with 18 home runs in 93 games.

This season, all of his numbers are even better. Through his first 75 games, he’s been hitting a little over .300 with 18 home runs, 13 doubles, and more than 60 runs driven in. It’s only a matter of time before he gets a shot to make a name for himself in the majors.

#6: Kevin Plawecki. 2012 -1st round.

Kevin has done what he could for the Mets. Before making his debut, he spent the better part of four seasons in their system, and he hit above, 300 twice.

Ever since he made his debut in 2015, his numbers haven’t been spectacular, but he’s been consistent and able to play a lot. So far in the majors, He’s played in more than 18 games and owns a .223 career average.

As a fielder, his career fielding percentage at catcher is .994 and he’s even gotten a chance to pitch twice.
