2 Mets Prospects have been added to the Futures Game on All-Star weekend, according to the Daily News’ Adam Rubin. Jenry Meija, the 19 year old pitching prospect in AA, and Wilmer Flores, a 17 year old shortstop (for now, he’s expected to grow too big for the position) in low Single-A Savannah will be representing the Mets during All-Star weekend.
Meija is the one to really keep an eye on, as he is dominating AA since being called up. He is small in height, but very strong and throws hard.
I would recommend checking out Toby Hydy’s MetsMinorLeagueBlog.com for more details on these kids. He and Adam Rubin are probably the best sources for Mets Minors happenings.
