Baseball America has come out with their yearly top ten prospect list for every MLB Organization. The Mets are headlined by top pitching prospect Noah Syndergaard who has been in trade rumors of late but is likely to stay Met property.

The big riser in the list in LHP Steven Matz, who didn’t even rank in the top ten last winter and is now right behind Syndergaard. Matz had a terrific year and could help the Mets in some role in the second half of 2015.

The prospect who fell the most was 1B Dominic Smith who was #4 last year but doesn’t appear in the top ten this winter. Smith struggled to hit for power in Low-A Savannah, a park that is very difficult to hit home runs in. 2015 will be a big year for the contact-first hitter.

The Mets of late have had mostly pitchers as top prospects, but the system has become much more balanced as six of the top ten prospects are position players.

Dilson Herrera and Rafael Montero are the only Met prospects on the list that have already made their big league debuts. Here is the full list.

Rank Prospect  Pos.  Last Year
1  Noah Syndergaard RHP  1
2 Steven Matz LHP  –
3 Brandon Nimmo OF  8
4 Dilson Herrera 2B  –
5 Kevin Plawecki C  5
6 Amed Rosario SS  7
7 Michael Conforto OF  –
8 Rafeal Montero RHP  3
9 Marcos Molina RHP  –
10 Gavin Cecchini SS  9
