Leathersich Named Top Mets Prospect

Jack Leathersich Mets uniformJohn Sickels has continued listing his top prospects in each organization, and ATVL keeps reading to find those former Valley Leaguers.

The last VBLer named in Jack Leathersich (Haymarket 2009), who Sickels names the 18th-best prospect in the New York Mets’ system. A 5th round draft pick in the 2011 draft, Jack has been striking out batters at an amazing clip through the minor leagues, and reached Triple-A (again) in 2014.

This is what Sickels has to say about Jack:

Age 24, power bullpen arm posts ridiculous strikeout rates with nasty breaking ball and low-90s fastball, 93 in just 54 innings between Double-A and Triple-A last year. Command is erratic and he has not been overly effective in Triple-A, but should get a bullpen trial sometime this year. Has fanned 334 in 197 career innings.

Stay tuned- if Jack gets called up in 2015, ATVL will tell you about it!
