2019 Mets draft profile: Tucker Flint

New, 1 comment

With their thirty-sixth selection in the 2019 draft, the Mets selected Tucker Flint, an outfielder from Rhode Island.

Born: East Greenwich, Rhode Island

Age: 18 (4/05/01)

Height/Weight: 6’1”/200 lbs.

Position: OF

Bats/Throws: L/L

School: Bishop Hendricken High School (Warwick, Rhode Island)

Tucker Flint had an excellent season for Bishop Hendricken High School, the catalyst that helped the Hawks go an undefeated 23-0 and win the Rhode Island state title. A two-time All-State selection, Flint had an excellent season in 2019, eventually being selected as the Gatorade Player of the Year for the state of Rhode Island. Excluding the numbers he posted during the 2019 Rhode Island Baseball State Tournament, Flint hit .545/.662/1.045 with eight doubles, seven triples, and sixteen walks.

At the plate, Flint stands slightly open, with his hands deep and high. He swings with a slight leg lift and stride, and possesses game-changing power, thanks to a combination of his strength and bat speed. He isn’t a one-dimensional slugger, and can make contact, hitting to all fields and wearing out pitchers. He is a fringe-average-to-average runner, and while he is not a complete liability on the base paths, is unlikely to have much value there.

He moves well in the outfield, showing good athleticism. His transfer is quick and smooth, and his arm is strong- reaching as high as 82 MPH- and accurate.

Flint has a commitment to the University of Maryland.
