Here's Callis' latest:
Assuming Nimmo signs as expected, I'd predict that the Mets would rank in the 11-15 range when we unveil our farm system rankings in the 2012 Prospect Handbook.
1. Zack Wheeler, rhpNot an easy call, but I'm taking Wheeler over Harvey because he has a higher ceiling.
2. Matt Harvey, rhpTore up high Class A, has struggled in Double-A during his first pro season.
3. Brandon Nimmo, ofHighest pick ever from Wyoming (No. 13) was one of draft's best athletes.
4. Jeurys Familia, rhpStill throwing in mid-90s, has improved command after rough 2010 season.
5. Kirk Nieuwenhuis, ofNot fair to call him an overachiever when he keeps producing everywhere he goes.
6. Jennry Mejia, rhpSystem's No. 1 prospect entering 2011 had Tommy John surgery in May.
7. Cesar Puello, ofHaving inconsistent year in high Class A, but still has five-tool potential.
8. Michael Fulmer, rhpFastball jumped to mid-90s, slider to mid-80s during high school senior year.
9. Jordany Valdespin, ss/2bEnjoying breakout year with bat in Double-A, needs more defensive consistency.
10. Wilmer Flores, ssLeft field is best-case defensive scenario, and scouts are losing enthusiasm for his bat.
I wrote last week that I still have Harvey over Wheeler. I'm not sure Wheeler's ceiling is that much higher and Harvey has conquered advanced-A. Wheeler has not. Otherwise, it all seems like really reasonable stuff to me from Callis, who apparently likes Michael Fulmer a lot, which is nice.
Ok, gang, have at it.
