Mets 2021 Farm System Rankings According to The Athletic and Baseball America

The Rankings

Today Keith Law and Baseball America both revealed their 2021 MLB Farm system rankings but do not get too excited! According to Keith Law from the Athletic, the Mets farm system ranked 19th overall. Law also expressed that, had the Mets not traded away so many prospects (mainly Jarred Kelenic for Cano and Diaz) they may have been a top-10 farm system. Baseball America ranked the Mets farm system 23rd overall also mirroring what Law said about the Mets system being thin due to all of the previous trades in the last three seasons.

Why so low?

The Mets have a very weak farm system at the advance (AA and AAA) levels which caused them to fall back. While they do have a very talented pool of low minor players, we have not yet seen what they are capable of doing just yet. There is lot of raw talent in the low minors with high ceiling and I expect by this time next year, the Mets will be ranked much higher (12-15 range).
