1B Peter Alonso (No. 51) and INF Andres Gimenez (No. 58) made the cut for the Mets. Gimenez was No. 38 on the Baseball Prospectus list, while Alonso was No. 40.
Alonso is the No. 1 first base prospect in baseball, per MLB Pipeline's list.
Former Mets prospects Jarred Kelenic and Justin Dunn -- traded to the Mariners in the deal that brought Edwin Diaz and Robinson Cano to the Mets -- came in at No. 56 and No. 91 respectively on MLB Pipeline's list.
Regarding Alonso, MLB Pipeline's scouting report notes that he "has ridiculous raw power from the right side, and it clearly shows up in games, including on big stages like his 113.6-mph homer in the 2018 Futures Game or his homer off a 103-mph fastball in the Arizona Fall League Fall Stars Game. While his strikeout rate went up with the move to Triple-A, he makes enough contact to tap into his power consistently and draws a lot of walks as well."
MLB Pipeline's scouting report on Alonso says his much-questioned defense should be "adequate enough" to handle first base -- something that has been echoed in other recent scouting reports on him.
The 24-year-old Alonso will be at big league spring training, and GM Brodie Van Wagenen has said that he hopes the team's crowded infield situation and the need to fight for a spot will help motivate Alonso even further.
Gimenez -- MLB Pipeline's top defensive shortstop -- is expected to open the season back with Double-A Binghamton, with a promotion to Triple-A Syracuse during the season likely and a promotion to the majors possible.
"Gimenez might be among the most unassuming-looking top prospects in the game given his small frame, but he has tools on both sides of the ball," according to MLB Pipeline's scouting report. "He can flat-out play shortstop, and should be able to play there long-term thanks to his strong arm, excellent hands, range and plus instincts for the position. While he's not a burner, he has above-average speed, and he maximizes it both defensively and as a hitter, leading the organization in stolen bases in 2018. He has a very good approach at the plate that leads to consistent contact, and he's shown he's not afraid to draw a walk. He may never win a home run derby, but the 2018 Futures Gamer showed more extra-base thump in '18, with a bit more to come."
As far as how the rest of the NL East was represented on MLB Pipeline's list, the Braves had eight players (the second-most in baseball, behind only the Padres), the Nationals and Phillies had three each, and the Marlins had one.
