2014 Mets Top Prospects: No. 18 Domingo Tapia, RHP

18. Domingo Tapia Height: 6’4” Weight: 186 lbs. Age: 22 Bats/Throws: Right/Right This kid’s arm strength is off the charts.

Domingo Tapia Makes BA Prospect Hot Sheet…In The Wrong Way

It’s been a real tough season for Domingo Tapia. He’s battled with injury, but mostly just being inconsistent on the mound. He doesn’t have any feel for the strike zone this year; his 5.4 BB/9 rate is approximately double any mark he had in his career the three seasons prior. The native Dominican once again struggled this week against Bradenton. He allowed seven runs on four...

Tapia Continues To Roll, Six Shutout Innings In 1-0 St. Lucie Win

St. Lucie 1, Daytona 0 If you like good pitching as much as I do, then you can understand why I have little reason to dislike Domingo Tapia. The young hurler was dominant again on Sunday, where he tossed six shutout frames while allowing just two hits. He walked three and struck out four in what can only be looked at as yet another step in the right direction for the young man. Of...

Mets Minors: Building from the bottom up – Domingo Tapia

Domingo Tapia:  I like Tapia… partially because saying “Domingo” is pretty fun but also because he’s got some of the best “STUFF” in the system.   If the man could get away with throwing only fastballs he’d be golden, but that isn’t the case with most players and it’s not likely the case with Tapia. Scouting: At 6’4” 190 Lbs. makes Tapia a suitable size...
