Evans, Murphy, and Carp

The Mets currently have three 1st base types hitting the cover off the ball in AA.

 

Mike Carp:  .420/.461/.691

Carp was a "prospect" a few years ago who had a lost 2007 due to hand related injuries.  In A+ ball, he showed some power and ability to take walks at the age of 20.  His main problem was an inability to hit lefties, leading him to max out at platoon player status.

Dan Murphy:  .398/.441/.530

I know virtually nothing about Murphy, to be honest.  Scouts keeping talking up his tools but I haven't seen anything in his past stats to suggest a breakout.

Nick Evans:  .338/.376/.597

Evans, in my mind, is the right handed version of Carp.  Very similar stats at A+ although Evans was a year older at that stage.

 

Now, none of these guys were particularly great prospects coming in but considering the fact the Mets are in dire need of a 1st baseman, do any of these guys have a future?
