Close-Up: Jeff Flagg

Jeff Flagg is one of the few Cyclones' starters who has been hitting well since the season began. After nine games, the first baseman's batting .297, third best on the team, and has driven in a team-leading nine RBIs. His RBI total is second-highest in the NY-Penn League.

At 24, Flagg's the team's second-oldest player (Pedro Martinez is its oldest) and, at 6'6" and 246 pounds, its largest.

This is Flagg's third season in pro ball. During that time, his batting average is .247, and his OPS is .739. The Mets drafted him in the 27th round in 2008.

Prior to joining the Mets, he played for Mississippi State. In 2008, he hit .180; in 2007, he hit .312; and in 2006, he hit .091. Despite the fact that he didn't even break .200 in two of his three college seasons, the Mets must have seen something during his sophomore year to interest them.
