New York Mets Stock Update: Top 5 Prospects in 2014

It's no secret that the New York Mets spent the majority of the last five years replenishing their farm system to help on the major league level. They have a number of top prospects who could be on the roster in the next couple years, but it's always fun to see how they are performing in their respective leagues. Here is the stock update for the top five Mets prospects in 2014.

The New York Mets 2014 first-round draft pick is tearing up the NY-Penn League for the Brooklyn Cyclones. Michael Conforto was the best bat coming out of college and it has certainly translated thus far. In 26 games this season, he is hitting .320. The power numbers are not quite there yet, but it should progress over time.

Dilson Herrera is the Mets' second baseman of the future. After being acquired last year from the Pittsburgh Pirates, he has quickly moved up the Mets farm system. And after earning a call-up to the Binghamton Mets this year, he is tearing it up in double-A ball. He is batting .337 with seven home runs and 39 RBIs in Binghamton, and it shouldn't be too long before we see him on the big level.

Brandon Nimmo has become an untouchable trade piece for the New York Mets because he has tremendous potential. However, after his call-up to Binghamton earlier this year, he has struggled a bit. His batting average has dropped 80 points since his move to Double-A. Hopefully he's just taking some time to adjust to an increased talent pool.

Much like Brandon Nimmo, Kevin Plawecki has struggled a bit after his promotion to the Las Vegas 51s. He has hit on every level he has played, so I am not extremely worried about him. He's still one of the Mets top prospects, but Plawecki has fallen on hard times a bit since his promotion, and that's why his stock is down.

Noah Syndergaard is extremely close to being called up to the big club, and although his ERA is near 5.00 in Las Vegas, it's impossible to tell how effective he may be because Las Vegas is a horrible pitcher's ballpark. We aren't going to find out how good he can actually be until we see him against big league hitters.
