OF Zach Rheams
L/R, 7/5/96
Texas Tech U
6'0", 235 lbs

Rheams is a big outfielder who hit for a ton of power this year. Rheams hit .329/.460/.686 with 17 homers. He also has some problems with swinging and missing too much but the raw power potential exists.

I like this kids power. He can hit. Haven't seen him much in the field. Tech plays Duke in the super regional Saturday in Lubbock.. Tech had 11 players drafted.

Has DHed almost exclusively the 2 yrs at TT. I wonder if he's really 1B only. Looks like he rakes tho. Didn't start off the season in the TT regular lineup but once he got an opportunity, it looks like he never stopped hitting.

Went 1 for 3 with a double, walk and run today as Texas Tech beat Duke to advance to the CWS.

Wonder what is holding up this kids signing? He is out of eligibility thus options. He needs to get himself on a minor league roster asap.

Just curious what happens to a kid like this if he docent sign with the team that drafted him? Does he wait a year and then become a free agent?

Seniors can wait all the way til like a week before the 2019 season, or somethin like that. Pretty sure they are then free agents at some point, but not sure if it's start of the season, year after draft, etc

He was probably weighing the Mets bonus offer against the much more generous salary he would earn working at McDonalds.

He fits the Mets hitting profile: In 2018 at Texas Tech he hit 17 homers and had a .713 SLG, the highest on the team, but also had no triples, no stolen bases, and almost 50% more strikeouts than walks.

One interesting stat: He had almost as many extra-base hits as singles: He had 28 doubles and homers and 29 singles.

He also was a Second Team All-American (American Baseball Coaches Association (ABCA)/Rawlings).
