The Nationals and top draft pick Carter Kieboom agreed to terms this week on a deal that will pay the 18-year-old shortstop a $2 million signing bonus, a source familiar with the decision confirmed.
That amount, which was first reported by MLB.com’s Jim Callis, is roughly the same as MLB’s predetermined slot amount of $2,065,900 for the 28th overall selection in last week’s draft.

The Mets did not take a prep player until the 11th round and, as of the writing of this article, had already signed four of the 11 players they took in the top-10 rounds. Despite skipping on prep talent, they still drafted four of my top 102.

The Mets led off with one of my favorite players, Justin Dunn, who slid to 19. I think he could help a team out of the bullpen this year, then be stretched out as a starter for the future. If he had been starting all year, I think there is a very good chance he would have been a top-10 pick. Next they redrafted Anthony Kay (round 1), the lefty from UConn. They had drafted him out of high school, and he was too good a value to pass on for them at 3. After being a team that historically leads with bats early in the draft, they went with two pitchers with their first two picks. They would not take another arm until the 6th round.

There are four bats which stood out to me in the Mets draft: Pete Alonso (round 2), Blake Tiberi (round 3), Gene Cone (round 10), and Daniel Rizzie (round 13). Alonso is the big name in this group. After being linked heavily to Craig, the Mets found a power hitting first baseman in round two. Tiberi and Cone are a pair of players who performed at a very high level in the ACC, despite their lack of big tools. They are both guys who are numbers-over-tools types. Rizzie is a catcher with a strong arm and the ability to be a solid defender. His bat didn’t play up enough this year in a weak Horizon league.

My favorite pick, relative to when he was drafted, was Colby Woodmansee (round 5). He has already signed for full slot value and, at that cost. I wonder how a shortstop with power potential lasted so long. He doesn’t strike out a lot, has a chance to stick at short, and could end up with above-average power in general, and plus power for the shortstop position. He will more than likely end up being my favorite pick in the fifth round.

Rutherford signed, of course. About $800K over slot, but the 18th slot was arbitrarily low for him. He got about 11th slot money, $3.3M

BTW, the Tribe did sign Capel.

@jimcallisMLB
5th-rder Conner Capel's bonus w/@Indians: $361,300 (pick 152 value). Texas HS OF, steal where they got him, 65 run, VG makeup. @MLBDraft

Some remaining players of interest, otherwise known as players who we can be absolutely certain the Mets will not draft:

1- Connor Capel: prep OFer L/L - possibly strong commit to Texas (his father pitched there in the 80s). already 19. If they've saved anything by going college with the first 3 picks, don't wait till later to use the $. Prob doesn't make it to 100

2- Heath Quinn - college OFer R/R - power bat. again, prob doesn't make it to 100

3- Sean Murphy - College C R/R - supposed to be the best defensive C in draft

4 - Adam Laskey - prep LHer from NJ. Rated pretty high. I think he has a commit to Duke so it may take a lot to get him.

5- Nolan "Nonie" Williams - prep SS, SHer, lots of pop, may move to CF, 3B

6 - Garrett Hampson - college SS, Dirt Bag, R/R

7- Trever Morrison - college SS, Oregon, L/R

8 - David Greer - 3B, R/R ASU

9- Logan Gray - 3B, R/R Austin Peay

10- Nick Banks - Texas A&M RFer L/R - some early versions of this class had him as a 1st rd talent with a 60 hit tool.

11- Brad Debo - prep C L/R - supposedly solid catching skills

Overall, a mixed bag with these. Most of the college bats are excelling. The preps taking longer to adjust...
