Potential starter at the big-league level?

I could see it at second base, providing some speed and pop although I wouldn’t expect a great OBP out of him and he would not be a star.
Without thinking too much, who are the top 5 for next year?

Zunino, Appel, Marrero, Gausman, Giolito. Honorable mention: McCullers
What’s the realistic expectation to have going forward? the .949 2nd half obviously seems unrealistic to sustain, but with each passing game he’s picking up a lot of believers.

I think his overall numbers are not a fluke, although the hot streak won’t be maintained. Overall he’s hitting…let’s see….292/.365/.480. I can see him doing that again…maybe a bit less batting average but overall I think he made real progress.
Sleeper prospect in mets system
Off the top of your head can you think of a sleeper in the mets system? If so, why do you think he’s a sleeper?

It’s one question but off the top of my head I will say Darin Gorski, who is well-known to Mets fans but not so much to fans of other teams.
One of the problems with questions like this is that it is nearly impossible to name a “sleeper” that the hard-core fans of the team in question are not aware of. So I try to pick out guys who fans from other teams or casual fans aren’t aware of and Gorski would qualify.
What do you see in store for him? Is he playing 2B for the Mets next year?

IF HE CAN STAY HEALTHY, yes
Will he ever live up to the hype, be a decent major leaguer, or just be a complete bust?

somewhere between option two and option three
