Mets Could Lose Multiple Players Including Logan Verrett In Rule 5 Draft

Logan Verrett is quite the talented young pitcher.

Sandy Alderson told reporters that he expects to lose multiple players in the Rule 5 Draft, particularly during the minor league portion.

Joel Sherman adds that the Mets are expected to lose RHP Logan Verrett during the MLB portion of the draft.

Verrett, 24, went 11-5 with a 4.33 ERA and 1.370 WHIP for Triple-A Las Vegas last season. In 162 innings pitched he walked 34 and struck out 115 batters.

Among Las Vegas starting pitchers with 10 or more starts, only Rafael Montero (3.60) posted a better ERA in the hitting friendly PCL.
