The Mets are making their picks in rounds three through 10 on Friday, the second day of the First Year Player Draft.
New York selected high school SS Milton Ramos with the No. 84 overall pick.
“People tell me he could play defense in the big leagues now,” Jonathan Mayo said of Ramos on the MLB.com draft show.
Ramos, 18, is listed at 6 foot 2 inches and 165 pounds. He hit .424 with a .500 OBP during his senior season.
“His bat isn’t as advanced as his glove,” according to the his draft profile on MLB.com. “He has minimal power now, but scouts expect him to develop some as he gets stronger.”
Ramos is considered one of the top defensive shortstops in this draft class (Baseball America, June 6).
With the No. 115 pick, the Mets picked college 3B Eudor Garcia.
At 5 foot 11 inches and 225 pounds, he likely won’t stick at third base, according to MLB.com’s draft show. Jim Callis suggested Garcia could eventually move to first base.
Garcia hit .460 with 14 home runs and a .873 slugging percentage this season. In his two seasons at college, he hit .435, with 23 home runs and 290 total bases. He was recently named a JUCO All-American (Chavez, June 4).
“One of the best hitters in the draft,” John Manuel of Baseball America said of Garcia (Twitter, June 6). “Where he plays defensively, we’ll see. But that dude rakes.”
With the No. 145 pick, the Mets selected RHP Josh Prevost out of Seton Hall University.
Prevost, listed at 6 foot 8 inches and 220 pounds, was the 2014 Big East Pitcher of the Year. He went 12-2 with a 1.62 ERA over 15 starts. He struck out 111 and walked 20 over 116 1/3 innings.
With the No. 175 pick in the draft, the Mets selected C Tyler Moore out of Louisiana State University.
On the MLB.com draft show, they commented that Moore was likely not an everyday catcher and might not stick at that position.
Moore hit .301 with a .484 slugging percentage last season. He hit 10 doubles and six home runs in 153 at bats.
The Mets selected LHP Brad Wieck out of Oklahoma City University with the No. 205 pick in the draft. Wieck was originally drafted in the 2012 draft by the Phillies, but did not sign.
