Mock Organization Diary #4 for the New York Mets, Minor League Ball Community Mock Draft 2012
In this MOD, we will discuss our preferred players for the Mets Round 2 picks, which are #71 and #75 overall. In the first round we are selecting the best player available, regardless of organizational needs. With the next three picks, the plan is to select two catchers, one high school and one college, both of whom project to stick behind the plate, and one pitcher, preferably a southpaw.
Some of the players who may be available at #71 and #75 include:
|73||Philips, Dane||C||Oklahoma City|
|75||Berrios, J.O.||RHP/SS||Papa Juan XXIII HS(PR)||Miami Dade JC commit|
|76||Romero, Avery||SS/C||Pedro Menendez HS (FL)||Florida commit|
|77||Bolt, Skye||OF||Holy Innocents (GA)||Switch hitter, toolsy, projects as rightfielder|
|78||Rodriguez, Nelson||C||George Washington HS (NYC)||Central AZ CC commit|
|79||Valentin, Jesmuel||2B/SS||Puerto Rico Baseball Academy||Switch-hitter, LSU commit, son of Jose Valentin|
|80||Wood, Alex||LHP||Georgia||Throws in mid 90s, Recovered from TJ, has quirky delivery|
Who should be added to this list, and why?
