Hmmm poor hitting skills, yes he is the perfect Met. He will be a big addition to the Mets infamous high powered offense :^o

He's actually a redraft. Mets took him out of High School. Guess they still like him.

Any insight into Cortes low BABIP 2 years running? No real mention of him being an unusually poor runner #Mets

Some of it is due to launch angle. He has some pop. Was more of a line driver hitter in HS

Convert him to catcher.

Another lefty hitter. .244 in college = .144 in the minors when guess what? 6 guys are moved to the right side of the field. The Mets just want to fail. This is what bad organizations do.

Scout the player not the stat line.

I'm sure there are hundreds of guys hitting for a higher average throughout the NCAA, and the majority of them aren't going to get drafted, which Cortes was going to whether the Mets took him or not. There is a reason for that.
