Signed, per someone on twitter who posted a picture of him dressed as a Met player from little league days (parent?).

Glad we can get him signed. Hope it's not for too much above slot.

The team has retweeted the tweet announcing his signing.

That is really awesome that young pitchers may see the Mets as a good opportunity/place to go for their development/future.

I liked reading that quote tbh.

Yeah, and if you're using the "He's 19" logic, then I guess the best report a scout could give us is:


"I have no idea. He's a teenager. He may go through 5 arm surgeries between now and his 30th birthday. He may add a pitch. He may lose a pitch. He may put on 30 lbs and add velocity. He may put on 50 lbs and eat his way out of the league. I literally have no idea what he is going to be."

But thats not what these guys are paid to do, nor what we are looking for them to do, right?

Good to see the infusion of lefties this year. Of course that's always been my bias...

It's kind of awesome that the guy lots of people were saying would be a tough sign got signed in a day. Curious what the numbers are.

Casey Meisner was a high upside guy and an underslot.

@JonathanMayoB3: 5th-rder Thomas Szapucki bonus w/@Mets = $375,000 (pick 149 value = $355,500). HS lefty from Florida can really spin curve @MLBDraft

Much less than I expected.
