Another long shot?

Mets starting to take some talented kids at least. Be nice to sign one or two of them.

In 2012, a Northwest Mississippi CC southpaw rode a surge of velocity into the second round of the Draft. History is repeating itself this year, and while he may not go quite as high as Cody Reed did, Fowler has a better breaking ball at the same stage. He has backed out of a commitment to Mississippi, so he'll return to the Rangers for his sophomore season if he doesn't turn pro. Fowler had a low-80s fastball as a Tennessee high school junior in 2017 and improved to the mid-80s as a senior before jumping to 90-93 mph at times as a junior college freshman. There were games when he operated more in the upper 80s, but he's still growing into his lanky 6-foot-5 frame and could sit in the mid-90s with sink once he's fully developed. He also shows an affinity for spinning a curveball, though he sometimes has trouble staying on top of it because he employs a lower-three-quarters arm slot. Fowler also displays some feel for a changeup, giving him the potential for a nice three-pitch mix. He's still figuring out how to keep his long arms and legs in sync in his delivery, and he has trouble finding the strike zone when he can't. He needs a lot of polish but has more upside than most left-handers in this Draft.


Sounds like he might signable?

I wonder if the new strategy is to take as any non-signables to prevent someone from sneakily signing them...
