Mets' Top 30 prospects list

Less than a week after representing the Mets in the All-Star Futures Game, Gimenez was promoted to Double-A Binghamton on Sunday.

Joining Gimenez on the Top 100 list are first baseman Peter Alonso (No. 65), 2018 first-round Draft pick outfielder Jarred Kelenic (No. 69) and right-handed pitcher Justin Dunn (No. 100).

Alonso began the year in Binghamton and slugged 15 home runs while posting a .314 batting average over 65 games before being promoted to Triple-A Las Vegas in June. Dunn has been on the rise as well, posting a 2.52 ERA and 1.235 WHIP over 17 combined starts between Class A Advanced St. Lucie and Binghamton.

Noah Syndergaard (hand, foot and mouth disease) worked out on Thursday, and the Mets remain optimistic that the right-hander could return from the disabled list as soon as during next week's two-game set with the Nationals.

 "He's doing really well," manager Mickey Callaway said. "Had a good workout today. Threw up to 120 feet, no issues. He's in a really good spot. We got to see him yesterday. He looked great, felt good. He's in a good spot, and kind of in line for that Washington series."

Callaway also stated that Todd Frazier, who landed on the disabled list on July 9 with a left rib cage muscle strain, is expected to start his rehab assignment "in the next couple days."
