Close-Up of Adam Kolarek

Adam Kolarek, the Mets 11th draft choice, spent the past three years playing for the University of Maryland. He's the first left-handed pitcher the team drafted in 2010.

The 2010 season was his first losing one. In it, though he pitched the fewest innings, he had the most strikeouts and opponents had the lowest batting average against him. (In 2010, Kolarek couldn't take the mound for a month after suffering an oblique strain.)

On the negative side, in 2010, in 15 fewer innings than in 2009, he gave up only two fewer runs. (Did his injury affect him on the mound?)

Kolarek, who signed for six figures, will report tomorrow to Port St. Lucie, Florida, for a week and then play for the Kingsport Mets, a Rookie League team.
