FanGraphs has Alvarez at 5 above Julio Rodriguez and Baty at 14Longenhagen told a panel he was one at a convention that Baty was 15-20
He really likes Baty. I'm not as high fwiw but dude probably is in my top 30 right now. Alvarez is definitely top 10, maybe top 5
BA Grade: 50/Extreme
Track Record: The Mets emphasized volume during the 2020-21 international signing period, preferring to spread their bonus pool money around rather than focusing large sums on few players. They might have unearthed a gem in Diaz, a 6-foot-2 Dominican righthander whose fastball velocity jumped in the period leading up to his signing in January 2021. He made a loud pro debut in the Dominican Summer League, allowing three earned runs in 50.1 innings. Diaz’s 0.54 ERA was the fourth lowest by a qualified pitcher in the DSL since at least 2006 and the lowest by a 17-year-old in that time.
Scouting Report: Diaz is a strike thrower with three pitches, good velocity and the projectable, athletic frame to add even more. His fastball ranges from 92-96 mph after sitting more in the high 80s when other teams were scouting him as an amateur. Diaz was reaching his peak velocity more often later in the season. Life on the pitch was evident from the 11.3 strikeouts per nine innings, .163 opponent average and zero home runs he allowed in 15 starts. Diaz is a strong, fluid pitcher who has uncommon feel for his secondary pitches for such a young pitcher. His changeup with late fade played as above-average to plus in his debut, and he threw it 20% of the time. He tended to introduce his high-70s curveball the second time through the order, but if he struggled to control it or get chases he would ditch it in favor of his change.
The Future: Diaz’s starts were appointment viewing for Mets player development staff, who would make a point to tune in to the internal livestream of DSL games to watch him pitch. They should be able to watch him in person in 2022, when an assignment to Low-A St. Lucie is possible. With so much distance to cover, Diaz is a boom or bust pitching prospect with a wide range of possible outcomes.
Fastball: 60. Curveball: 50. Changeup: 55. Control: 50
You cant judge a career based on 18PA?Lee had a pretty ridiculous season this year, by any measure. He seems to have made adjustments after his major league appearance when he looked completely lost.
May still just be a 4th outfielder if he can't play CF, but we'll see!
Having Mets prospect coverage for fantasy, the drop off is around 13. Getting dudes beyond that wasn't as hard as my White Sox and Angels coverage but it was super hard.Lee being around 10 is not really a problem.
The problem probably comes when you get in the 15-30 range.
