As some of you know, aside from writing here at MetsMerized I also write for the blog St. Lucie To Flushing which focuses mainly on Mets Minor League coverage.
A good friend of mine Joe DeMayo also writes over at STF. He recently finished the 4th version of his MLB Mock Draft. It’s truly a great piece of work to read if you have the time. He includes a write up for the first 15 picks in the draft including the Mets pick at 12:
LHP Max Fried – Harvard Westlake HS (CA) – I will preface this by saying it is entirely possible that Fried is long gone by time the Mets pick at 12. But I think given what some teams are looking to do it is a possibility that Fried falls to 12. I asked this to MLB.com’s Jonathan Mayo on Twitter and he said he thought it was possible that he could be available for the Mets. The Mets have seen a lot of Fried this spring through his ups and downs. The upside is undeniable and I think if Fried falls to 12 the Mets would be ecstatic to select him. Latest I am hearing in regards to the Mets is unless someone falls (ala Fried) they are looking at some prep bats and would also consider Texas A+M righty Michael Wacha.
Check out Joe’s complete updated 2012 mock and his analysis at St. Lucie To Flushing.
P.S. – Last week I posted my own mock draft on MetsMerized which you can view by clicking here.
