Casey Meisner

Lets look at a cohesive group of young arms in my Top 41, young pitchers with better than average fastballs who have not played full-season ball yet. I tend to be pretty conservative with young pitchers especially those below full-season ball since there are just so many misses.

This trio begins the fun part of the rankings.

In the third round, at #76, with the compensation pick for not signing Teddy Stankiewicz last year, the Mets picked HS CF Ivan Wilson from Ruston (LA) HS. With their own pick, the Mets grabbed HS RHP Casey Meisner from Cypress Woods (TX) HS.

MLB.com's scouting report on Wilson is awfully intriguing:

Wilson's combination of tools and athleticism is among the best of this year's prep outfielders. He is listed at 6-foot-3, 220 pounds with good strength and plus speed. Wilson, out of Ruston H.S. (La.), has good power and can hit home runs to any part of the ballpark.
At ESPN.com, Keith Law had Wilson ranked as his #86 draft prospect.
