Round two makes me re-think my rankings… at least if I were running the Mets like a GM simulation. Some players in this next bunch shine brightly but some also appear a bit dimmer than we may have hoped.
Michael Fulmer – OVR: 50 PEAK: 86 (Age 20)
What This Means: Fulmer pitched well enough in FSA to be an average pitcher in advanced A. People are excited about Fulmer, as they should be, but in the end I’m not sure he’s the 3rd best pitching prospect in the Met’s stable. He’s certainly good and certainly has a bright future but in the grand scheme of things there may be better people out there.
