Juan Carlos Gamboa – .270/.390/.444/.834 (28 Games) 11 Runs, 5 RBI, 3 2Bs and 1 HR: J.C. Gamboa will be 22 in 2013 and he hasn’t played above the SSA (though he’s played in the AAA Mexican League a few times. He’s a smaller player who has good defense at 2B but he lacks the speed or power to be an impact in the big-leagues. It’s a good bet that he’ll progress through the minors as a backup IF but he’s not a factor as a prospect… sorry.
Wilmer Flores – .272/.338/.410/.748 (52 Games) 23 Runs, 20 RBI, 10 2Bs, 1 3B, 5 HRs: Flores has had a good offseason and will look to flourish in the PCL and within the positive hitting atmosphere of Las Vegas. The power and contact look to be in place, it’s 100% about his defense. The only glimmer of hope that he stays a Met is that Daniel Murphy might get hurt and open a role for Flores.
Flores is developing a significant split:
Vs. Left: .347/.418/.551/.969 (K/AB: 0.163)
Vs. Right: .247/.311/.363/.674 (K/AB: 0.151)
Juan Lagares – .315/.37
