2010 MLB Amateur Draft (Updated)

An article by posted on January 15, 2010

Here is the updated version of the 2010 MLB Amateur Draft. The Mets forfeited a second round pick when they signed Jason Bay.

All the Type A free agents have been accounted for now that Jose Valverde has signed with the Detroit Tigers. Only three Type B free agents remain: Brian Shouse, Rod Barajas and Joel Pineiro. Their former teams will receive a supplemental first round pick once they sign with a new team. 

The last time the Mets had a top ten pick, they selected Mike Pelfrey ninth overall in 2005. Catcher Bryce Harper will most likely be the top pick in a pitching rich draft. Here is a top ten projection:

  1. C Bryce Harper
  2. RHP Jameson Taillon
  3. 3B Nick Castellanos
  4. RHP AJ Cole
  5. OF Austin Wilson
  6. RHP Anthony Ranaudo
  7. RHP Karsten Whitson
