There is a ton of talent among this group of players with each one of them bringing something different to the table. Again, this list is for the Mets Instructional League in St. Lucie, which you can read more about right here, courtesy of Matt M. Games begin Tuesday and run through Oct 4. Here are a few notes on the roster.

  • A large chunk of the Mets ’13 draft picks will attend this league, with 18 total players from the 2013 class taking part. The 1st – 8th round picks (Smith, Church, Wilson, Meisner, Mazzilli, King, Stuart, Oberste, Knapp) are all attending. Bashlor (11th) and Meisner are two pitchers that I am relatively high on for the future, and Ivan Wilson always gets a ton of love from me.
  • Taking a general look at the outfielders on the list, it is good to see Wuilmer Becerra and Vicente Lupo get some extra work after underwhelming seasons. Both men harbor a lot of potential — as does Brandon Nimmo, who is joining them there.
  • Somewhere, my colleague Teddy Klein is jumping because Amed Rosario, the potential shortstop of the Mets future, is attending as well. There’s a nice crop of names in the infield bunch that includes the newly-acquired Dilson Herrera and Gavin Cecchini.
  • I am loving a lot of the names on the list of pitchers — especially a pair of right-handers from Kingsport: Chris Flexen and Rob Whalen. Frias is a guy that impressed me in person when I saw him in Brooklyn, by the way.

    You know me, buddy.
    Jumping up and down, though I had a feeling they wouldn’t Omit him. I am upset about wilson however…
    Congrats to Rob Whalen as well!

    I don’t understand the instructional league. IS this supposed to be for the guys the Mets consider the best and brightest we got?

    Isn’t Ismael Tijerina an infielder that played for the Cyclones last season? He’s listed as a pitcher. Otherwise great list can’t wait for spring training.

    He is an infielder — a shortstop, actually.

    He pitched two innings in relief for BK and they must have liked what they saw.

    It’s sorta like extended spring training.
