There's nothing not to like about signing a kid like this from the 17th round. It's either this, another high schooler who doesn't sign, or an easy college sign who was "solid" at some non-power conference school.

HS lefty already throwing 90. Who knows what happens with a year or two of pro development. I'll take this 10/10 times.

Absolutely.

@jimcallisMLB: $100k in 17th rd. @nymets18: Not top 10 rounds, but any word on Sixto Torres' bonus with the @Mets? @MLBDraft

I'm shocked we got him for that.

And doesn't count against remaining money either. Wow!

Interesting to see the $ on this one. I would guess $300,000 or more. Overall, great job adding this level of quality so late in the draft.



Since he signed so quick, I tend to think this may be a near $100K signing. You would think the Mets would want to sign their top nine picks, first, to see how much extra money they have to play with before dishing out above slot money to anyone.

If I had waited about 10 minutes I wouldn't have had to make the previous post. LOL

PJ Conlon got more.

Corey Taylor got 4x that of the NCAA's leading hitter this year.

This is why I don't understand the draft.

I'm shocked we got him for that.

was supposedly relatively obscure, so that could've played into it. either way, I know LHed velocity and all, and of course maybe he develops well but not a guy I was gaga over based on what I saw so glad it didn't take a big number to get him.
