Mets SS Amed Rosario has been named baseball's top prospect currently playing in the minor leagues, according to ESPN's Keith Law.
Law, who had Rosario ranked third in January, has slotted Rosario at the top of the list in his latest update, as Andrew Benintendi and Dansby Swanson are no longer considered prospects.
Rosario started this season in Triple-A Las Vegas after just 54 games in Double-A, which Law sees as the Mets wanting the 21-year-old in the majors at some point in the near future.
"Rosario is big for shortstop but in his own league athletically," Law said in January. "He's almost a lock to stay at the position, and he's gifted with quick actions, a plus arm and the ability to throw accurately while in motion.
"He has MVP potential as a true shortstop who will be above average defensively and projects to hit .300 with some walks and power."
To start this year, Rosario is 11-for-26 with three RBIs with Vegas. For his minor league career, Rosario has hit .283 a .329 OBP and .388 SLG in 364 games.
First baseman Dominic Smith is ranked 22nd in the newest list. He's hitting .440 through six Triple-A games.
