Which Top Prospects Are In The MiLB Playoffs?

Which top prospects are in the MiLB playoffs

Adam Rubin provided a wealth of useful information about the Mets farm system in yesterday’s Farm Report on ESPN New York (as he always does). The first item in the article’s “short hops” section caught my attention. Rubin pointed out that the Mets are allowing Rafael Montero, Jacob deGrom, and Noah Syndergaard to pitch into the postseason despite the fact that they are all getting close to their organizational innings limits.

Since the B-Mets have already clinched a playoff position, Syndergaard’s workload has been being watched recently to make sure he can finish the season in Binghamton. The Las Vegas 51s see themselves in playoff contention as the season closes out for Montero and deGrom. For the remainder of the season, These two right-handed pitchers will each be limited to 90 pitches.

Oneil Cruz, A Notable Prospect For The Pirates

Oneil Cruz, A Notable Prospect For The Pirates

Oneil Cruz, who is ranked No. 12 overall by Baseball Prospectus, is one of the top prospects in the Pittsburgh system. The 6-7 shortstop played six games with Indianapolis last season, batting.524 with five home runs, but spent the majority of the 2021 season with Double-A Altoona. Last season, he made his Major League debut, playing in two games, going 3-for-9 with a home run, and becoming the second man 6-7 or higher to play shortstop.

He has played 405 minor league games since being selected by the Los Angeles Dodgers in 2016. Given that the Pirates don’t appear to be contenders this year, the organization may decide to allow Cruz to advance at the major league level. Cruz has a powerful swing (17 home runs last season). With his 6-7 frame, it is unclear if he can maintain his position at shortstop.

Can The Team Return To The Playoffs With A Fresh Coaching Staff?

In the summer, the team made major changes to its coaching staff. After serving as Double-A Altoona’s manager the previous year, Miguel Perez was named the team’s manager. Cruz flourished in Double-A last year. Under Perez’s guidance (12 home runs and a.292 batting average in 63 games). Since 2017, the team hasn’t advanced farther in the playoffs, and it hasn’t had a winning record since 2018. Brian Esposito, the team’s manager for the previous three seasons, is replaced by Perez. (Esposito will oversee Fort Wayne for the Padres.)

Additionally, the group changed the bench coach, hitting coach, and pitching coach from Dan Meyer to Eric Munson (Gary Green). Watch the Charlotte Knights, Louisville Bats, Iowa Cubs, and more at Victory Field. At Victory Field, supporters of surrounding MLB teams may see their Triple-A rivals. The team will host the Chicago Cubs’ Iowa Cubs 12 times in July and August, the Cincinnati Reds’ Louisville Bats 12 times in May, and the St. Louis Cardinals’ Memphis Redbirds 12 times in August.
