It has been a little over a month since the New York Mets pulled the trigger on a trade with the Los Angeles Angels sending Eduardo Escobar to the west coast. The Mets in return have two minor league pitchers with upside to potentially make an impact at the big league level within the next season or two.

Landon Marceaux, one of the two arms that the Mets received in return, is currently ranked as the Mets' 26th prospect by Marceaux is currently in Single-A St. Lucie and has largely struggled since debuting in the Mets system. Over two starts in St. Lucie, Marceaux has a 9.53 ERA in 5.2 innings pitched with an ugly 2.12 WHIP.

The Mets acquired two upside arms for Eduardo Escobar and the results haven't been ideal to this point

Marceaux has also made an appearance at Double-A Binghamton where he continued to struggle as he pitched 2 innings and gave up 5 earned runs. The results simply haven't been there for Marceaux to this point as he finds himself on the fringe of the Mets prospect rankings.

The higher upside arm of the two is right-hander Coleman Crow, currently ranked as the Mets' 17th prospect in their system by Crow has not made his Minor League debut in the Mets system since his acquisition due to being on the Injured List with elbow inflammation since May 12th.

Prior to the injury, Crow had a 1.88 ERA over 24 innings pitched with a 31/6 strikeout-to-walk ratio in Double-A Rocket City. It's unknown to this point Crow's current status or if he's expected to throw another pitch this season as the organization has been mum since the trade. The main fear when you hear about an inflamed elbow with any pitcher is that Tommy John surgery may be a possibility and we can only hope at this point that it isn't necessary for the 22-year-old right-hander.
