Updated top 10 prospects list, via Baseball Prospectus

How did the R.A. Dickey trade affect the Mets’ farm system? Baseball Prospectus today offered this new top 10 prospects list:

1. Zack Wheeler, RHP
2. Travis d’Arnaud, C
3. Noah Syndergaard, RHP
4. Michael Fulmer, RHP
5. Wilmer Flores, INF
6. Gavin Cecchini, SS
7. Domingo Tapia, RHP
8. Jeurys Familia, RHP
9. Brandon Nimmo, OF
10. Rafael Montero, RHP

Obviously there is some difference in opinion here from last week’s Baseball America list, which was published before the Dickey trade, and ranked Fulmer seventh and Luis Mateo fourth. But the industry consensus seems to be that d’Arnaud and Syndergaard are now the Mets’ clear second- and third-best prospects behind Wheeler.

On d’Arnaud, Baseball Prospectus called him “ready for prime-time” and described him as a “.275-plus batting average” guy with “17-25 HR power potential.”

On Syndergaard, BP wrote that his ceiling is as a “high-end no. 2 starter” and that “he could be a monster.”
