Mets Sign First 11 2015 Draft Picks

The Mets have now signed their first 11 draft picks with one pick whom I expected to be assigned to the Brooklyn Cyclones surprisingly assigned to the Kingsport Mets: Kevin Kaczmarski, their ninth-round pick. 

It was surprising because in 2015 the 23-year-old redshirt senior received these honors:
  • 2015 Louisville Slugger First Team All-American
  • 2015 NCBWA First Team All-American
  • 2015 ABCA / Rawlings Second Team All-American
  • 2015 Baseball America Second Team All-American
In his final season at the University of Evansville, he hit .465 (the highest in Division 1 baseball by 43 points) with a .543 on-base percentage (second highest in Div. 1), .746 slugging percentage (second highest in Div. 1), and nine triples (tied for first in Div. 1).

Kingsport's season starts tonight as should Kaczmarki's.
