2) Rylan Bannon

Another potentially intriguing option down in Syracuse that could make sense for the Mets, should they decide to move on from Joey Wendle, is infielder Rylan Bannon. Bannon has some intriguing offensive numbers at this point in the season down in Triple-A as he has put up 6 home runs, with 16 RBIs to go along with a .250 AVG with an OPS of .915 in 84 at-bats.

While Bannon isn't considered a prospect at this point in his career at the age of 28 years old, he has produced decent offensive numbers throughout his minor-league career. Bannon could present himself as this year's potential low-risk, high-reward type of player the Mets could give a shot at the Major League level.

Defensively Bannon can play all around the infield, which is going to be a requisite for anybody the front office decides to replace Wendle with on the MLB roster. The downside of this move would be the lack of Major League experience as Bannon only has 20 career at-bats. However, a player such as Bannon, who seems to have a little extra pop in his bat, could make for a nice flyer for the front office to take a gamble on.
