With their first-round selection last night, the Mets took UNC sinkerballer Matt Harvey, a kid with high upside but a little more rawness than you typically see in a college pitcher.
I'll try and keep up with the selections as they come off the board and add them to the chart below, but the picks do move very fast. After picking prep outfielder Josh Sale last night, I'll also continue making my selections in my shadow draft for at least a few more rounds in the comments below.
|1||Matt Harvey||RHP||North Carolina|
|4||Cory Vaughn||OF||San Diego State|
|5||Matt den Dekker||OF||Florida|
|6||Greg Peavey||RHP||Oregon State|
|8||Kenny McDowall||RHP||College of Southern Nevada|
|9||Jake deGrom||RHP/SS||Stetson University|
|10||Akeel Morris||RHP||Charlotte Amelie HS (VI)|
|12||Bret Mitchell||RHP||Minnesota State-Mankato|
|14||J.B. Brown||2B||U Pacific|
|15||Tillman Pugh||OF||Sonoma State|
|17||Chad Sheppard||RHP||Northwestern State|
|18||A.J. Pinera||RHP||U Tampa|
|21||Dabias Johnson||2B||Cook HS (GA)|
|22||Brandon Brown||SS||South Alabama|
|26||Jet Butler||SS||Mississippi State|
|27||Michael Weldon||RHP||Wayland Baptist|
|29||Hamilton Bennett||LHP||Tennessee Wesleyan|
|30||Josh Edgin||LHP||Francis Marion|
And that does it for us. I'll have the highlights up either later tonight or early tomorrow morning. Quick gut reactions: that's a lot of college players, and it's a lot of pitchers.
