    Those numbers are very encouraging. Kid is only like 16 or 17.

    New York Mets

    The Mets are entering their first July 2 under the watch of international scouting director Chris Becerra. Dominican shortstop Amed Rosario draws a wide range of opinions, but sources believe the Mets have Rosario graded out highly and are the favorites to sign him. Rosario could end up the highest-paid player in the Dominican Republic, though some wonder who the competition is that would drive Rosario's price tag so high. They look like the leaders to land Rosario as well as Miguel Patino from Venezuela.

    More on Patino from Baseball America
    Though Venezuela's Miguel Patińo has tried out for teams as a shortstop, sources say the Mets may sign him to try to make him a catcher. He's a little guy at around 5-foot-7, but his bat is solid with gap power, solid hands and a close to average arm.

    Another small up the middle position player. Do we see a trend going on here with this new FO?

    It's not a trend; it's a commitment. I believe Depodesta basically said that the Mets were focused on players up the middle.

    The biggest problem with shorter players is they'll tend to hit less HR. But if a guy can stick up the middle defensively, play good defense, and get on base, he doesn't need to hit HR to be valuable.

    The other 17 year old from last year who was a pretty big signing was Jhoan Urena, a good defensive 3B who is hitting .298/.364/.481 so far.

    And their two biggest signings from 2010 were probably Vicente Lupo (1.121 OPS) and Elvis Sanchez (0.963 OPS), though for some reason I don't think Sanchez got a big bonus, I remember him being highly regarded.

    I think the Mets are trying to find players like Pedroia and Altuve with this philosophy, don't know how that's going to work out.

    Yeah is official 1.75 million.

    http://www.baseballamerica.com/blog/...-amed-rosario/
    Dominican shortstop Amed Rosario has signed with the Mets for $1.75 million.

    Rosario, the No. 11 international prospect for July 2, is a 16-year-old righthanded hitter with plenty of room to fill out his lanky, 6-foot-3, 170-pound frame. Some teams project Rosario as a shortstop with offensive upside, though others think he may outgrow the position. Rosario grew up as a teammate with Rangers outfielder Nomar Mazara in La Javilla youth league. He trained at the academy of the president of the league, John Carmona.
