Scouting Blake Taylor

The Mets acquired Blake Taylor from the Pirates yesterday, fulfilling the Ike Davis trade from earlier this season. What is Taylor's ceiling, and will he ever reach it?

2014 Mets Draft Scouting Reports: Rounds 31-35

The Mets drafted five players between rounds 31 and 35, all of them from the high school ranks. How high are their ceilings, and will they ever get there?

2014 Mets Draft Scouting Reports: Rounds 26-30

Between rounds 26 and 30, the Mets drafted two players who could be impact guys down the road. How good are they and are they signable?

2014 Mets Draft Scouting Reports: Rounds 21-25

The Mets drafted an outfielder, a second baseman, and three right-handed pitchers who project as relievers. But will they sign any of them?

2014 Mets Draft Scouting Report: RHP Jim Duff

The Mets drafted another tall pitcher in the 20th round. Stonehill College's Jim Duff has a nice sinker, but does he offer enough else to make it as a starting pitcher as a pro?

2014 Mets Draft Scouting Report: RHP Bryce Beeler

The Mets drafted Memphis's right-handed closer Bryce Beeler in the 19th round. A former infielder, he converted to pitching this season. Can he become the next Jacob DeGrom?

2014 Mets Draft Scouting Report: Raphael Ramirez

The Mets took a toolsy outfielder from Georgia in the 18th round. He has speed but needs a lot of work in the batter's box. Should the Mets pony up and pay the man?

2014 Mets Draft Scouting Report: David Roseboom

The Mets went with South Carolina-Upstate senior southpaw David Roseboom in the 17th round. Roseboom has been a starter in college, but is his stuff good enough to start as a professional?

2014 Mets Draft Scouting Report: LHP Joel Huertas

The Mets took Puerto Rican southpaw Joel Huertas in the 16th round. Despite his below average present stuff, it was still a good value. Find out why here.

2014 Mets Draft Scouting Report: RHP Gabe Llanes

8

Gabe Llanes is a prep righty from California and the Mets' 15th-round draft pick. He has little in the way of present stuff but offers tantalizing projection. What is the likelihood his skills ever match his promise?

2014 Mets Draft Scouting Report: C Darryl Knight

The Mets draft Darryl Knight in the 14th round. A catcher from Embry-Riddle, he has power and a strong arm, but will the rest of his game hold up?

2014 Mets Draft Scouting Report: RHP Erik Manoah

The Mets' 13th-round pick, Erik Manoah, is a prep pitcher with some present polish to his game. Unfortunately, his velocity was down some this spring. If he can regain his past velocity, the Mets might have found a bargain.

The Mets drafted a tall, projectable 17-year-old named Alex Durham, out of North Carolina, in the 12th round. What does his ceiling look like?

2014 Mets Draft Scouting Report: LHP Kelly Secrest

The Mets grabbed a college closer in the tenth round of the 2014 draft. He has above average velocity, but will he be ready to contribute sooner rather than later?

2014 Mets Draft Scouting Report: OF Michael Katz

The Mets selected yet another power hitter in Michael Katz, an outfielder from William & Mary, in the ninth round. But will his defense be good enough to play left field, or will the Mets find themselves with yet another first baseman?

2014 Mets Draft Scouting Report: Dash Winningham

The Mets drafted a 6-foot-2, 220 pound first baseman with above average raw power. If they can tame the contact issues inherent to his current swing, they may have found a useful bat in the eighth round.

2014 Mets Draft Scouting Report: LHP Brad Wieck

The Mets grabbed a 6-foot-9 lefty in Round 7 of the draft. What kind of upside does he have and what's the likelihood of him reaching it?

2014 Mets Draft Scouting Report: C Tyler Moore

9

The Mets drafted one of LSU's catchers in the sixth round. He brings a solid defensive profile and some power from the left side, but will he throw well enough to stick behind the plate?

2014 Mets Draft Scouting Report: RHP Josh Prevost

The Mets took a gigantic sinkerballing righty in the fifth round. Can he throw enough strikes to make the majors?

2014 Mets Draft Scouting Report: 3B Eudor Garcia

2014 Mets Draft Scouting Report: SS Milton Ramos

The Mets grabbed a Miami prep shortstop in the third round. He can really glove it, but will he hit enough to make the majors?

2008 Draft Review: Ike Davis

With the 18th pick in the 2008 draft, the Mets selected first baseman Ike Davis. He's been disappointing over the past two seasons, but does that preclude him from being a successful draft pick?

Scouting Newest Met Vic Black

The second player acquired in the Marlon Byrd trade, Vic Black has a power fastball and a great slider, but will a lack of command be his undoing?

Dilson Herrera scouting report

In exchange for Marlon Byrd, the Mets acquired a pretty good second base prospect in Dilson Herrera. Find out more about his strengths and weaknesses here.
