What does everyone think of some of the bigger names in the system (Vientos, Lindsay, et al.) and their 2018 placement in the system?

I wouldn't mind challenging Vientos with a Columbia assignment. They brought Gimenez straight to Cola from the DSL, but then again, Lindsay spent a year in Brooklyn, so I could see it going either way. My gut says they have Vientos stay in extended ST and then head to Brooklyn, given he's a bit on the raw side (compared to a guy like Gimenez who has a more "refined" game for someone his age and better suited for advanced assignments) and young even by high school draftee standards. Also a chance to "showcase" the early round selection a little.

I'd almost prefer Lindsay to repeat Cola and see if he can stay healthy/have a productive season. But I actually think they go the opposite direction and move him along to St. Lucie despite the injured/somewhat lost 2017 year he had. E

I don't see Uriarte starting 2018 anywhere but Cola. He was in Kingsport and had a really nice season and he's also not a US player with a 1st/2nd round pedigree who they tend to want to "show off" in BK. Nor is he a Rosario-type with lots of hype. Not to mention, he'll be 20 in a couple weeks so Cola seems pretty age appropriate for 2018.

I think Peterson to St. Lucie is a no brainer.

Dunn should 110% repeat in St. Lucie. If he has another season like this year, then a move to the pen should not be ruled out.

Szapucki and Humphreys...how much of them will we even see in 2018? None of Humphreys at all, right? What about Puck?

Thompson to Vegas should be a sure thing, even if the overall 2017 numbers are mediocre--they were really dragged down by a horrid April. From May on, he was really quite good and his defense seems good enough to lighten the need for his bat to be some All-Star level producer to make up for defensive shortcomings.

I'd like to see Nido repeat Binghamton. Defense seems to be fine, I think he threw out a good percentage of attempted base stealers, but the offense is lacking. Let him repeat and see if he has figured it out before bumping him up to the highest level of the minors.

Agree? Disagree? What's your opinion on some of these guys? What other players are you interested to see where he gets assigned?

They didn't bring Gimenez straight to Cola. He spent the first few weeks in extended spring training, but when there was an opening in Columbia, the brought him up. I think Vientos is probably Brooklyn. This will probably get decided next year in Extended spring training anyway, but Brooklyn would be my guess.

I think Lindsay's a lock for St. Lucie and it's where I'd put him personally too. He was getting things figured out after a bad start. He's had fewer ABs than you'd like to see a player his age have by now, but I still think St. Lucie is the right call.

I'm not sure Uriarte is a prospect. I'd like to see a bit more written about him first, but Brooklyn's catchers this year look think enough that a Columbia wouldn't shock me, but I still guess Brooklyn.

Peterson - agree.

Dunn - I'm not as down on him as others. I wouldn't have a problem with him starting in Bing. I'm tempted to guess that. Nothing wrong with a little aggressive assignment.

I think Thompson and Nido in Vegas is a lock. The thing about Nido in Vegas is, he works with pitchers who could see majors. His bat wasn't so bad this year that he should be held back.

Mostly I find assignments are pretty predictible. Gimenez (and Dom a couple years earlier) were surprises to me, but not shocking. Champ is an interesting question cause his bat wasn't there this year but I think he sees Vegas too.

Gotta see who gets cut before I make extensive predictions.

I would think the Vegas Rotation next season will include:
Oswalt, Conlon, Molina, Jannis, Flexen with Logan Taylor or Tyler Pill at Long Relief and spot starting.

Drew Smith, Corey Taylor should highlight the Vegas bullpen.

Guillorme, Thompson, Nido, Oberste, Urena, McNeil, should be in the the Vegas INF.

Kaz, Boyd, Stuart will likely roam the Vegas OF.

What I meant by "straight to Cola" was that he didn't play in the GCL/Kingsport/BK at all. As far as official games go, he went straight from the DSL to Cola.

But yes, he spent a couple weeks in EXST before debuting in late April.

Sorry for being so nitpicky. I only meant that the plan could well have been Brooklyn, but it was changed with Woodmansee getting DL'd. I'm not sure the mets planned to put him in COLA.

One thing to keep in mind is the Mets MAY decide they prefer an 18 year old in Columbia vs. in Brooklyn given the city/temptations etc. I'm sure it's part of the discussion.
