Beltran Booty: Mike Minor

As the countdown to the Carlos Beltran ticks away, it is beginning to feel like Christmas morning. A complicated Christmas morning, to be sure, since while whatever is under the tree in prospects will be exciting, one quick look around will reveal that your father’s also left town.
But these are the Mets: total victories don’t seem to come with the blue and orange. And a deal of Beltran for Mike Minor, who the Mets are reportedly scouting, would be just fantastic.
Minor was the fourth-rated prospect in the Atlanta organization by Baseball America this spring, and John Sickels gave him a B+. He is a 6’4” lefty with a plus-plus changeup and a fastball in the 91-94 range. He’d slot into the rotation immediately, and both publications list his upside as number 2 starter, whatever that means for a team whose Opening Day starter was Mike Pelfrey. He projects to be quite good.
This, like Domonic Brown, would represent a very good return for two months of Carlos Beltran. My Beltran Booty rating for this potential haul is “Arrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrraign Sandy Alderson for Grand Larceny.”
