2014 Mets Top Prospects: No. 24 Juan Centeno, C

24. Juan Centeno Height: 5’10” Weight: 170 lbs. Age: 24 Bats/Throws: Left/Right Juan Centeno is the best defensive catcher the Mets have in the organization so it looks as if his future role will be to backup Travis d’Arnaud. He’s more valuable than he seems because catchers generally start less games than any position on the field due to the physical demands so Centeno...

What Can We Make Of Juan Centeno?

This paragraph in a Fangraphs.com article about the bias of Top 100 lists, started me thinking: “It’s interesting that Yadier Molina never made a top 100 list when you consider he was a semi-high pick with two brothers in the big leagues and never hit below .275 in a full-season minor league. The thing that worked against Molina is that he didn’t start hitting for power until...

Centeno On His Way To Airport, Should Be Promoted/Added To 40-Man

  As I said earlier, no way D’Arnaud replaces Buck. Centeno heading to airport, will be added to 40 which Mets needed to do anyway for Rule 5. — Mets Merized Online (@MetsMerized) August 1, 2013 Well, this is…relatively unsurprising. See, a little earlier today, Joe D. wrote this in an update… According to Adam Rubin, Travis d’Arnaud could join the Mets when John...

MMO Prospect Pulse: Juan Centeno, C

I have been asked more than once why I thought minor league catching prospect Juan Centeno received a non-roster invite by the Mets to Spring Training. I’ll admit that I was initially puzzled by the move, but after a minute of deliberating it wasn’t really as surprising as one would think. A quick look to the left and you see the underwhelming and overpriced John Buck, while...
