    2018 New York Mets Draft Selections & Signings

    Teams did not think he would sign?

    After the tenth round you get many of the guys that teams draft that likely would ask for more money that wants would be willing to give them.

    But sometimes some of these kids end up signing for reasonable amounts.

    And where does it say that he throws 96 mph?

    He's a two pitch pitcher.

    Baseball America:

    Rank: 401

    A big, 6-foot-7, 230-pound righthander, Gonzalez is an arm strength power pitcher with a fastball that has been up to 95-96 mph this spring. Scouts think that he can eventually throw in the upper 90s, but he has a long arm stroke and no breaking ball to speak of presently. During games this spring, Gonzalez pitched off of his fastball almost exclusively and would throw just one breaking ball in some looks. Hes also a below-average athlete. An Alabama State commit, Gonzalez is thought to be a tough sign, and while a team might bite on a future 70-grade fastball, it could be a tough sell without much in the way of secondary offerings.

    Kelenic: $5m

    BTW this is the baseball academy that Kalenic's family co-owns:

    https://stiksacademy.com/

    His family also has a stake in the Stiks Academy, which has a 33,000 square-foot indoor practice field and 11 batting tunnels and the NX Level sports training facility, where Lux and NFL brothers Derek and T.J. Watt have trained.

    Just found out that the Mets wanted to give Tyler Ras 3/4 of slot money for a 3rd round pick. He declined and the Mets selected Cortes.
