According to nyfuturestars.com, the Mets have signed three draft choices. Among them is their ninth choice: Jacob deGrom, a right-handed pitcher. For the past three seasons, he's played for Stetson University. In 2010 their record was 27-31. The Hatters were much better at home than away. At home, they were 22-15; away, they were 5-14.
In his last regular season game, in 9-2/3 innings deGrom surrendered one run, gave up five hits, and struck out nine. The Hatters lost in 11.
In 95 at bats, deGrom hit .263.
His pitching stats aren't that impressive. But then, before his junior season he pitched just one inning. Maybe the Mets believe that if he can't make it on the mound the team can return him to the infield.
