Top Ronny Mauricio News

  • Mets' Ronny Mauricio: Finding groove at Double-A

    Mauricio went 2-for-3 with a double, a home run and four RBI for Double-A Binghamton on Sunday.

    The 21-year-old has seen his prospect status fade significantly over the last couple years, but the Mets still protected Mauricio from the Rule 5 draft in the offseason, and he's beginning to reward the organization's faith in him. He's batting .298 over his last 11 games with seven of his 14 hits going for extra bases, including three homers. However, he also has a 32 percent strikeout rate against a four percent walk rate over that stretch, and his inability to control the strike zone remains the biggest obstacle between Mauricio and a regular spot in the big-league lineup down the road.

  • Mets' Ronny Mauricio: Shielded from Rule 5 draft

    Mauricio was added to the Mets' 40-man roster Friday, Justin Toscano of The Bergen Record reports.

    While Mauricio isn't all that close to making his big-league debut, he is too talented to leave unprotected from the Rule 5 draft. Once a skinny shortstop who was all projection, Mauricio has filled out his 6-foot-3 frame and is getting to that impressive power in games. He will need to improve his approach in the coming years.

  • Mets' Ronny Mauricio: Awarded for High-A performance

    Mauricio was named the High-A East's Top MLB Prospect and also made the circuit's All-Star squad.

    A .242/.290/.449 batting line isn't much to write home about, but it's good for a 20-year-old in High-A ball, and he showed noteworthy grit by working his way out of a lengthy early-season slump that lasted from late May to mid-July. He also didn't look daunted after getting promoted to Double-A, batting .323/.364/.452 across eight games there to close out the campaign. Expect Mauricio to open next season in Double-A, where he'll be expected to continue working on trimming his strikeout rate while getting to his power consistently in game action.

  • Mets' Ronny Mauricio: Advances to Double-A

    Mauricio was promoted to Double-A Binghamton on Thursday, Tim Healey of Newsday reports.

    Mauricio hasn't excelled at the plate this season, with his .242/.290/.449 slash line in 100 games for High-A Brooklyn equating to a sub-par 94 wRC+. He's been much better over his last 50 games, however, posting an .814 OPS after struggling to a .666 OPS over his first 50. Considering that he's just 20 years old and is also a full-time shortstop, there's reason to be encouraged as he works his way into the upper minors.

  • Mets' Ronny Mauricio: Homers twice in High-A

    Mauricio went 2-for-4 with a pair of solo homers, a walk and three runs in High-A Brooklyn's win over Jersey Shore on Tuesday.

    After a difficult June in which the 20-year-old shortstop hit just .202, he's in the midst of an excellent July that's seen him bat .293 with five homers, two steals, 14 RBI and 11 runs across 19 games. Mauricio's season line -- .247/.289/.459 with 13 homers and six steals -- still leaves something to be desired, but he's made positive strides nonetheless, showing increased power and more than holding his own despite being three years younger than the average player in the High-A East. He's still raw, as he simply doesn't have a ton of minor-league experience and his plate discipline remains a work in progress, so the Mets would do well to give him plenty of development time.

  • Mets' Ronny Mauricio: Raking to begin season

    Mauricio is slashing .341/.386/.732 through nine games for High-A Brooklyn with four home runs and 12 RBI.

    The 20-year-old has already matched his career high in homers, after putting four over the fence in 116 games in 2019 as an 18-year-old at Low-A. Mauricio's growth as a hitter is impressive, but his 3:13 BB:K indicates he still has some things to work on. Nonetheless, the Mets No. 4 fantasy prospect could be headed for a breakout campaign.

  • Mets' Ronny Mauricio: Joins player pool

    Mauricio was added to the Mets' 60-man player pool Monday, Anthony DiComo of MLB.com reports.

    Although he wasn't with the team during spring training or summer camp, Mauricio will develop at the Mets' alternate training site among other top prospects. The shortstop is the No. 1 fantasy prospect in the Mets' system but shouldn't reach the majors during the abbreviated 2020 season. In 116 games with Low-A Columbia last season, the 19-year-old hit .268 with four home runs, 37 RBI and 99 strikeouts.

  • Mets' Ronny Mauricio: Wrapping up solid July

    Mauricio is slashing .274/.330/.405 through 22 games in July for Low-A Columbia with one home run, one stolen base in four attempts and a 6:18 BB:K.

    While the 18-year-old hasn't been setting the world on fire in the Sally League, posting a wRC+ of 104 as a teenager in full-season ball is still impressive. Mauricio remains the No. 1 fantasy prospect in the Mets' system, and while he's still likely a few years away from the majors, he could put together a breakout at any time if the rest of his skill set starts to catch up to his hit tool.

  • Mets' Ronny Mauricio: On fire for Fireflies

    Mauricio went 3-for-4 with two doubles, a solo home run and two additional runs scored for Low-A Columbia on Thursday.

    The Mets' No. 1 fantasy prospect following the graduation of Pete Alonso, Mauricio has put together a nine-game hitting streak and hit safely in 14 of his last 16, slashing .353/.366/.544 over that stretch with seven doubles, two homers and a steal. He still isn't showing much patience, posting a 1:10 BB:K during those 16 games, but given that he won't turn 19 until next April, his ability to barrel the ball consistently at such a young age gives him sky-high upside.
