Now that the 2020 season is over and the offseason has officially begun, teams have started to prepare for 2021 and beyond. Who are the top ten New York Mets prospects ready to climb the ladder?
With the Steve Cohen era having officially started the New York Mets as a team and their fans, in general, can start to envision what kind of team will be on the field in 2021.
Since Cohen officially bought the team there has been a lot of talk about the Mets being big-game hunters both in free agency as well as in trades, most notable, Cleveland Indians Shortstop Francisco Lindor. If the Mets do pursue Lindor or any player for that matter in a trade, they will most likely need to dip into their prospect pool and send so young prospects to the team they are trading with.
In a perfect world, the Mets would be able to acquire whoever they want without giving up a top 10 prospect but unfortunately, this is not a perfect world and there is a chance that if the Mets acquire any player via a trade they may have to part with prospects in their top 10.
The top 10 prospects of a team are always coveted, and you want to make sure that if you give them up then you are receiving game-changing talent. You do not want a repeat of the Robinson Cano-Edwin Diaz trade from 2018.
With that being said it is good for a fan to know who the top 10 prospects for the New York Mets are in case they are traded.
