Was Billy Traber our last high round pick to take a reduced bonus in light of a bad physical? Hopefully, the results aren't too serious, but it sounds like he got abused at U Conn. It'd be really sad if that played a part in this.

Traber needed TJS IIRC.

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?

And TJS was much different in 1999/2000

I don't think he got TJS until 3 or 4 years later and after he made the majors, but the damage at the time of signing had to be pretty severe to cut his bonus from $1.3 million to $400,000. It doesn't sound like Kay is going to be taking that kind of cut, so it should be a far less serious issue.

Looks like Kay is finally official per Callis. 1.1 million bonus. Physical raised elbow concerns he says.

Cool.

@BaseballLI: Mets have concerns over Kay's physical which showed fraying in the UCL ligament of his left elbow.

Shouldn't he just have TJS now? Play in 2018?

Depends on the extent of the damage.

I am thinking that this was or is still a hot topic amongst the Mets braintrust. If he has the surgery now, he will lose only all of next year and he can begin his career at age 23 at Columbia. They could also try to fit him in to pitch a few games in August and then have the surgery in September. It will be interesting to see what happens here --


All in all, I think this was a pretty good draft.....
