Catchers Ali Sanchez and Carlos Sanchez waiting to take batting practice today. Ali put on a great display of power against the wind. Important note given that Ali has slugged only .326 in two pro seasons.

Corner infield prospect Jhoan Urena looks to bounce back after two straight disappointing season in St. Lucie. He played in the Colombia Winter League this offseason to try to get himself back on track.

Mets young outfield prospect Ricardo Cespedes is one of the most talented players in the lower levels of the system. We ranked him as our #22 prospect at MMN.

Shortstop prospect Andres Gimenez showed off why the Mets gave him a $1.2 million signing bonus in 2015 with a .350/.469/.523 slash line.

Infield prospect Luis Carpio missed most of the 2016, but came back sooner than expected to serve as the designated hitter for the Brooklyn Cyclones towards the end of the season. He has been added to the big league travel squad a few times this spring and went 0 for 1 in his only appearance.

    Thanks for the photos.

    Hey Ed, not to get greedy or anything, as the pics are fantastic, but any chance you can get some video of Gimenez and Guerrero taking BP?

  • TexasGusCC

    There’s power, and there is in-game power. Ruben Tejada had “power” in batting practice too.

  • Rob Thomas

    Pretty sure Guerrero is in the DR still

  • Not4

    Really? Thought for sure he’d be stateside this year with extended ST and then play in the GCL

  • Yeah but EST players don’t come until closer to the end of March

  • Buddy3

    Urena looks thick. I guess Teddy that he is the Bingo 1B this year with Thompson at 3B and Garcia and Alonso pressing them from PSL?

  • Not4

    Thanks for the clarification Teddy. So Gimenez is an exception to the rule?

  • yep.

  • Likely, though there can be some hidden speculation that Gimenez is there to be pushed aggressively, though I don’t know where he’d fit.

    For what it’s worth, Urena was working out exclusively at 3B this day in camp.
