A little surprised Ziegler goes this early, but had some scouts rave about his arm strength. Interesting

I wonder if they know his signing demands with this pick. Has some obvious unknown potential and maybe saves some money? I dunno.

Short in stature, but body looks well proportioned. Delivery looks pretty free and easy.

I wonder if he was a bit overlooked as a Canadian prospect who only came to the states this spring to pitch in Florida?

BA had him at #272, but listed him as one of their sleepers to watch.

From MLB front office member on Mets second rounder Calvin Ziegler:

"Ziegler is a great pick. Rides his FB well, and the slider has a really interesting break profile. Changeup has a ways to go still, but it's two pretty good pitches from a high school guy."

Yeah I look for the Mets to save some change here, a few hundred thousand that will go to Kumar.

Nothing wrong with a guy named Calvin playing baseball.

REPORT: Was sitting around 91-92 before blowing up a week before the draft last year and touching 97. he went back to HS for another (grade 12B in Canada) and decommitted from UCONN to then later commit to Auburn. He's now 94-95, toching 97 with spin rates in the 2350-2375 and typically 100% spin efficiency rates on the FB. He's got a low release height which means his FB is highly effective up in the zone and there's some deception in his delivery amidst a short/quick arm action. He'll throw two above average secondaries in a SL/CH but he'd be better off adding a CB to play off the FB. Command was a 45 last draft but its now around 50-55 and he's starting to uncover some pitchability traits of late. Has gotten heavy interest in 2021, and turned down six figures in 2020. Makeup is off the charts, great kid, and knows how to pitch, which has been his biggest progression over the past year.

As an IFA? Or from teams negotiating leading up to the draft?

I think he went back to high school for a last season, rather than prenegotiation...

#Mets going with Calvin Ziegler here. Huge stuff. HUGE spin. Effectively wild at times. Has the stuff to get to 3 plus pitches, but needs to bring in command. Up to 97.
