A bunch of the Mets' top prospects have been excelling so far during the minor league season.

Here's the latest...

  • RHP J.T. GInn, who just returned from Tommy John surgery, made his professional debut on Thursday. Ginn tossed three scoreless innings while allowing two hits, walking two, and striking out one. Per SNY contributor Jacob Resnick, Ginn featured a sinker that sat between 91 and 93 mph and topped out at 94 along with a slider that sat between 82 and 84 mph
