RHP Saul Gonzalez
R/R, 12/28/99
Montverde Academy (HS)
6'7", 235 lbs

The Mets selected righ-handed pitcher Saul Gonzalez in the 23rd round. Gonzalez, standing at 6’7” and 235 pounds, is a high schooler from Montverde Academy in Florida. The Puerto Rico native was a 2018 Rawlings-Perfect Game Honorable Mention All-American. Gonzalez, an Alabama State commit, has a good fastball and works in a curveball, but has no other breaking pitches to speak of.

Baseball America:

Rank: 401

A big, 6-foot-7, 230-pound righthander, Gonzalez is an arm strength power pitcher with a fastball that has been up to 95-96 mph this spring. Scouts think that he can eventually throw in the upper 90s, but he has a long arm stroke and no breaking ball to speak of presently. During games this spring, Gonzalez pitched off of his fastball almost exclusively and would throw just one breaking ball in some looks. He’s also a below-average athlete. An Alabama State commit, Gonzalez is thought to be a tough sign, and while a team might bite on a future 70-grade fastball, it could be a tough sell without much in the way of secondary offerings.

My favorite of the crapshoot picks who could sign or not. Great size.

Teach him a splitter and let him start long enough to prove he cant spin the ball. If he cant, off to the pen

This time w/name: The @Mets go over $125K value in 23rd round, give $175K ($50K counts against bonus pool) to Saul Gonzalez. 6-7 RHP from same HS as Lindor; huge projection, avg 93 on FB. 2ndary stuff needs work, @MLBDraft

So the non-top 10 picks are now slotted at $125K?

Happy we signed him but the lack of athleticism is going to make it tough for such a huge kid to repeat his delivery, see perennial tease Daniel Cabrera.
