Prospect Power Rankings - II

Greg Ramirez Makes The Biggest Leap

Each week InsidePitchMagazine.com will rank the top 30 performances by the Mets' prospects, shedding some insights into their numbers while tracking their rankings in previous weeks. This is our second installment of the Power Rankings for the 2005 season.

Note: This list is not about who are the better players or prospects, but rather who is doing the best and making the most of their opportunities. Players like Brian Daubach, Ron Calloway, and Benji Gil do not qualify for our Prospect Power Rankings due to the amount of service time at the Major League level.

4 Mike Carp HAG Hit .285 with HR & 4 RBI this past week.  His 7 HRs rank second among Mets' prospects. 6
       
5 Kevin Deaton BIN Still just 1-2 but his 20 K's and just 1 BB in five starts is outstanding, not to mention his 1.27 ERA. 5
