Juan Centeno

We ease into the top 30 of my Top 41 Mets prospects with a pair of skilled up the middle defenders who made their MLB debuts in 2013, but do not project to hit enough to be everyday guys. Still, there's big league value here.

 

#29 ? C Juan Centeno

The Mets have invited five non-roster minor leaguers to spring training: RHP?s?Rafael Montero?and?Cory Mazzoni, C?Juan Centeno, INF?Josh Satin?and OF?Matt den Dekker?to Major League Spring Training.

None are likely to make the team's 25-man roster out of camp. None.

No.

The closest guy is Juan Centeno who has hit his way out of life as a minor league backup into minor league starter in the last few years. This year, the 22-year old, who is generously listed at 5'9", hit .285/.337/.342 in 79 games for AA Binghamton. While he makes contact (just 43 strikeouts in 79 games) there's little power here to make him more valuable than, say, Thole.

Monday, I touched on the first round of AFL roster announcements with a look at RHP Collin McHugh, RHP Brandon Moore, OF Juan Lagares and 2B Reese Havens, but today we'll examine four more additions mostly from the a-ball levels: advanced-A 3B Jefry Marte, A RHP Taylor Whitenton, advanced-A C Juan Centeno and double-A LHP Robert Carson.

Note that Marte and Whitenton are already on the official Peoria Javelinas roster. Centeno and Carson are not, but Adam Rubin reported that they will both head to the desert.

CarsonMichael covered Carson at some length earlier this week. He's a hard-throwing lefty for whom the results do not yet match the good fastball. He'll need to tighten up his slider, which in Mike's opinion was his best breaking ball. Getting him more innings, and more at-bats against high-level competition is a good thing.
