As part of Baseball America ranking the top 20 prospects at each position, two Mets were named among the top shortstop prospects in baseball:

#3 Amed Rosario

2016 Level: St. Lucie & Binghamton

2016 Stats: 120 G, 479 AB, 65 R, 155 H, 24 2B, 13 3B, 5 HR, 71 RBI, 19 SB, .324/.374/.459

MMN Rank: #1

#20 Gavin Cecchini

2016 Level: Las Vegas & New York Mets

2016 MiLB Statistics:  117 G, 499 PA, 446 AB, 71 R, 145 H, 27 2B, 2 3B, 8 HR, 55 RBI, 4 SB, .325/.390/.448

2016 MLB Statistics: 4 G, 7 PA, 6 AB, 2 R, 2 H, 2 2B, 2 RBI, .333/.429/.667

MMN Rank: #7

With both of these players slated to play in Las Vegas next year, it is likely Cecchini moves to second base where he will combine with Rosario to be one of the most exciting double play combinations not just in Triple-A, but in all of baseball.

With Neil Walker and Asdrubal Cabrera potentially being free agents after this season, this duo could possibly become the Mets double play combination sooner rather than later.

No matter when it happens, Rosario and Cecchini promise to be a big part of the Mets for years to come.
