Mets considerable trade-block prospects: OF Nick Morabito
Drafted in 2022 at 19 years of age, Nick Morabito is fresh and vibrant within professional baseball and has a ton of room for development and molding. Morabito stands 5’11 at 185lbs of athleticism with total range and mobility as an outfielder.
His at athletic game from his feet to his hands started as a high school shortstop and translated to the grass. He poses uncertainty within his hitting abilities due to a clear struggle in strikeouts. In two professional seasons down in the Florida Complex League, Morabito saw 92 at-bats with 21 hits, 12 RBIs, 9 stolen bases, 16 walks, and an alarming 26 strikeouts. He’s batted a career .228 with a .357 on-base percentage.
Morabito does display the ability to reach base and get across. Most of his grades are average except for his running. This is perfect collateral for the Mets, as his player profile isn’t fully established to satisfy retaining. The Mets can draft an outfielder of the same calibre, and use Morabito for his 65-graded running skills and projection toward a helpful trade package. Morabito is still young with raw talent and his selection in the second compensation round of 2022 is leverage in value towards moving pieces.
