Mets Minors: Dilson Herrera and a lineup of future Mets

The Mets have traded away more than a little of the pitching they once had in their minor league system.  With Michael Fulmer, Casey Meisner, Luis Cessa and others all playing for new teams, one might think that the Met farm system is bereft of talent, but that is not the case.  The Mets have a tremendous store of hitting and it happens to stretch across a wide multitude of...

Mets Minors: Dilson Herrera is knocking at the door

Kevin Plawecki is already in the majors, proving the bevvy of talent that was stock-piled in AAA.  Next in the queue waiting for a shot at the majors is Dilson Herrera.  How long it takes him to reach the majors depends on many things but, at this point most of them are beyond his control. Herrera was acquired as part of the trade that sent Marlon Byrd and John Buck to the...

Prospect Pulse: Dilson Herrera, 2B

Dilson Herrera had perhaps the most impressive season of any Mets prospect this year. Herrera batted .323 with 13 home runs, 71 RBI and 23 steals while playing second base for High-A St. Lucie and Double-A Binghamton. He was a major force in the B-Mets lineup in the second half with an outstanding .340/.406/.560 slash line. What makes his performance even more impressive is the...

Could Dilson Herrera be the shortstop of the future?

Tonight, the Mets are wrapping up a series against the Colorado Rockies, and they will face the Washington Nationals in a four game home series starting tomorrow. As of today, the Nationals and Braves are the only team that the Mets will face for the remainder...

Dilson Herrera Homers and Triples As Impressive Debut Continues

Second baseman Dilson Herrera had a big day at the plate on Monday against the Miami Marlins. Herrera blasted a solo home run, his first, against Henderson Alvarez in the third. Then he lined a two-run triple against Sam Dyson in the sixth. Herrera, 20, did commit two errors, giving him three in four games. It would be an understatement for me to sit here and say there were tons...

New York Mets: Dilson Herrera era to begin

The New York Mets have made a big move concerning their middle infield. No, Troy Tulowitzki is not coming over in a trade. Instead the Mets have opted to put Daniel Murphy on the disabled list and call up Dilson Herrera from Double-A.
