Robert Dominguez, the 18-year-old right-handed pitcher whose fastball already tops out at 99 mph, is ranked No. 17 on the Mets' Top 31 prospects list that was released by FanGraphs on Friday.
Dominguez, who was signed out of Venezuela this past July, also already has a plus curveball to go along with a developing changeup.
"He's only thrown a handful of times since the velo spike and not even all of the Mets upper level decision makers have seen him yet, but the talent level is on par with a compensation or second round pick," FanGraphs wrote in their scouting report. "There's just significantly more uncertainty and less track record than even later-developing players taken in that range, like Josh Wolf."
Wolf, who was the Mets' second round pick in the 2019 MLB Draft, is ranked No. 12 by FanGraphs on their list.
FanGraphs' rankings are similar to the Baseball America Top 10 that was released on Wednesday.
Here is the Top 10:
1. SS Ronny Mauricio
2. INF Andres Gimenez
3. 3B Mark Vientos
4. 3B Brett Baty
5. RHP Matthew Allan
6. C Francisco Alvarez
7. LHP Thomas Szapucki
8. LHP David Peterson
9. RHP Franklyn Kilome
10. SS Shervyen Newton
The main differences between the Baseball America and FanGraphs Top 10 lists are the ranking of Alvarez (No. 2 per BA, No. 6 per FanGraphs) and the presence of Kilome and Newton on the FanGraphs list.
On Baseball America's list, Kilome and Newton are absent, while right-handed pitcher Josh Wolf and left-handed pitcher Kevin Smith are both in the Top 10.
