Tonight begins the 2015 MLB amateur draft, with the first two rounds—and their respective competitive-balance rounds—occurring tonight. The Mets don't have a first-round pick this year, a penalty for having signed Michael Cuddyer in the offseason. They do have a second-round pick, and will choose 53rd overall. While that's not a great place to start your draft, a handful of All-Stars have been chosen at that spot over the years, including former Met great Gary Carter (drafted by the Expos).
Scouting the draft is tougher when you don't have a pick in the first round, but here are four guys who could fall to the Mets.
For those who don’t know, the following amateur players are eligible to be drafted:
- All college juniors and seniors
- College freshmen and sophomores at four-year programs who are at least 21 years of age at the time of the draft
- All junior college players, regardless of age
- High school seniors
