I'm working on Big Prices for the Guide. Today I have Peter Alonso with a price of $7. What do you think?

Curious hire Brodie Van Wagenen says the Mets will remain in win now mode. Hmmm.  As a Mets fan, surely I will be fooled again during Spring Training into having hope.

Meanwhile, relating to Alonso, he said this (emphasis added):

While Van Wagenen was vague about the Mets’ plans to upgrade the offense and defense, he did make a point of saying that the first base prospect Peter Alonso figures in them somewhere.

Alonso, who hit 36 homers between Class AA and Class AAA last season, was frustrated not to be called up by the Mets in September. Van Wagenen said the young slugger would be given an opportunity to make the team in spring training. They met for dinner Saturday night after Alonso homered and walked twice in an Arizona Fall League All-Star Game.

“I wanted to be able to show him the respect and give him the understanding that he’s a priority to this organization, he’s a priority to me,” Van Wagenen said.

I wouldn't expect him to join the big league roster until the Mutts can control him for one extra year.

He was sent to the AFL to work on his fielding.  So far, he's 1st in HRs, 2nd in RBIs, 5th in SLG, and 5th in OPS (plus 2 SBs!).  I wonder how his fielding is going.  Because surely that is the driver as to whether or not he starts the season on the big league roster.

Tough or not, the Mets so far have managed to.

He made Baseball America's minor league All Star team announced today.

1B Peter Alonso | Mets
Triple-A Las Vegas (Pacific Coast)

The hulking Florida product took his power production to a new level in his second full season. Alonso finished tied for first in the minors in home runs (36), first in RBIs (119), third in extra-base hits (67) and third in total bases (272) as he mashed his way up to Triple-A. He crushed both righthanders (.285 average, .982 OPS) and lefthanders (.283, .956) and, importantly, became much more reliable defensively. After making 19 errors in 83 games at first base last year, Alonso committed nine errors in 110 games this year.

Given what the Mets have at the MLB level ... "at some point in 2019" seems fairly understated.

Alonso (as I noted below) started slow at AAA - but he's been catching fire.  Since the AS Game (23 games):   .316/.368/.705, with 9 HR and 8 doubles.

If this keeps up, it's going to be tough to keep him off the September roster.  Mets fans need some reason to come out to the park.

I was surprised to see the Mets were only two places behind the Yankees in the latest organizational rankings by Baseball America of talent in the minors. They have come a long way from the bottom, I'm not sure why.

New York Mets


2017: 15 | 2016: 15 | 2015: 4 | 2014: 10 | 2013: 26

3 Top 100 Prospects: SS Andres Gimenez (53), 1B Peter Alonso (72), OF Jarred Kelenic (75).

State of the System: Gimenez is one of the better all-around middle infield prospects in baseball, while Alonso should bring his elite power to New York at some point in 2019. The best of the rest are either far away—2018 first-rounder Kelenic and 17-year-old Dominican SS Ronny Mauricio—or are pitching prospects with modest ceilings, such as lefties David Peterson and Anthony Kay and righty Justin Dunn.

Another story in the "baseball is hard" category.  After dominating AA (.314/.440/.573 - 15 HR and 50 K in 220 ABs) ... Alonso has been finding AAA pitchers a lot tougher, despite playing in Las Vegas.  .203/.356/.407 line after 16 games (59 ABs) ... and the slugging percentage is elevated largely on the basis of one 3-HR game (the only HRs he's had).  What's really concerning is 21 K's in those 59 ABs, and a 2.4 ground ball to fly ball ratio at AAA. 

Will be interesting to see how soon he can make adjustments, because Dominic certainly isn't doing anything to grab the 1B job, picking up pretty much where his mediocre 2017 debut left off.

Just talking about the 11 HRs undersells Alonso.  Worth noting the BA flirting with .370, and the walk rate of one every six times to the plate.

In Binghamton, with a super cold spring.

Will be entertaining to see what kind of numbers he'll put up once the Mets finally send him to Las Vegas.  The most recent park factors I can find for Binghamton was 2014-2016, where it had a .94 for HR, .98 for hits.

Vegas over that time window was 1.05 for HR, 1.09 for hits - plus the road trips to Albuquerque, Colorado Springs, Reno, Salt Lake, and El Paso.

 Peter Alonso, Mets, 1B. The Mets slugging first baseman is having a year that forces everyone to pay attention. He homered twice last night and now has 11 home runs for the season.
