Aces Up: Matt Harvey is just one of a bevy of talented starting pitchers sprinkled throughout the Mets system.
I thought I’d take some time to examine what our opening day rotations would look like in the years to come. It’s basically an introspective on how far the Mets minor league system has come over the last two years, particularly among right-handed starting pitching which has become a strength for the Mets and the envy of many other teams.
The best part is how evenly dispersed our best talent is, but that’s offset by an apparent lack of quality left-handed pitching prospects. I suspect that will be an area they focus heavily on in future drafts.
These projections do not assume things like trades which could change everything, and I rolled with the fact that R.A, Dickey was still with the team. At least, that’s the hope. Enjoy.
2013 – R.A. Dickey, Jon Niese, Matt Harvey, Johan Santana, Dillon Gee
There’s a strong chance Dickey may not even be back next season, I’d say it’s 50/...
