"Sandy Alderson said on Thursday at Citi Field Lindsay and the Mets hinted they were close to agreeing to terms, and should have an official agreement soon.

“The way the draft works now, deals are cut pretty much simultaneous with selections,” Alderson explained."

Wotell looks a LOT bigger than Lindsay there. Why did he play 1B?

He didn't. Played 3rd and OF.

Believe he played some 1B coming back from an injury. Read somewhere he only played 7 games this spring.

I think he had them over a barrel a little bit without a first rounder.

Also for $100,000, they probably would rather get him rolling at GCL.

Strange reason to put him at 1b (to relax and focus on hitting) but sounds like a good add to the system.

Why? They were very open in saying they thought had he not lost playing time to a hammy they didn't think he'd have gotten out of the 1st round. If they wanted to get him for less than slot they needed to play the game of not overselling him. Instead they openly said he'd been underrated.
