Here’s the latest on some of the Mets’ top prospects…

SS/2B Ronny Mauricio, Triple-A Syracuse

Mauricio probably doesn’t want to see the calendar flip from May to June. During the month of May, Mauricio has been one of the best players in all of Triple-A, slashing a ridiculous .375/.408/.573 with one homer and 17 RBI.

Mauricio, seeing more and more time at second base, currently owns a 17-game on-base streak with five hits in his last four games against Louisville.

C Kevin Parada, High-A Brooklyn

It was a so-so week for Parada, who has three total hits in his last seven games.

Overall, Parada, who is now the Mets’ No. 1 prospect according to MLB Pipeline (Francisco Alvarez and Brett Baty have graduated off the list), is slashing .229/.335/.393 with three home runs and 13 RBI.

OF Alex Ramirez, High-A Brooklyn

Ramirez, now the Mets’ No. 2 prospect, has had an up-and-down month of May, hitting .238 with two homers and 11 RBI. He did have a two-hit day against Winston-Salem on Wednesday, including his third homer of the season.

Overall, Ramirez is slashing .264/.347/.378 with three home runs and 23 RBI.

SS Jett Williams, Low-A St. Lucie

The Mets’ No. 3 prospect, Williams has had some trouble finding hits. This past week, though, he did have three hits in five games, including hits in each of his last two starts, and he com

But even with a low batting average (.212), Williams has been an on-base machine (.401) thanks to 26 walks in 32 games.

He has one home run, 14 RBI, and 14 runs scored on the season.

RHP Mike Vasil, Double-A Binghamton

Vasil gave Mets fans a bit of a scare when he left Wednesday’s start with trainers in the top of the fifth inning. He allowed six earned runs on the day, and because he hasn’t allowed more than three earned runs in any other start this season, there was some reason for concern.

But Vasil is reportedly “day-to-day” and was taken out of the game for precautionary reasons. Still, his health will be worth monitoring, as he is the most major league-ready pitching prospect the Mets have in their system.

RHP Blade Tidwell, High-A Brooklyn

The jump to High-A ball has been a difficult one for Tidwell, the Mets’ second-round pick last year.

In seven starts for the cyclones, Tidwell, has pitched to a 6.04 ERA with a 1.55 WHIP. But the bright side is that Tidwell has been pitching better in his last two starts, allowing just two earned runs over 10.0 innings of work.
