Mets Draft Local Baseball Player

The Mets have completed their 2017 MLB Draft haul, culminating with the 40th round on Wednesday. Here’s how things finished up.

They used their 31st pick on RHP Ryan Selmer out of Maryland. LHP Kaylor Chafin was the next pick, he’s ranked as the 50th best Texas Prospect. MacLeod Lozer (goes by Mac) out of Michigan was their 33rd rounder. Jake Eder, a top 100 draft prospect, fell into the Mets lap in the 34th round. If the Mets sign him, they should be ecstatic but he has a commitment to Vanderbilt. Their 35th selection was RHP Kyle Wilson out of Crowder College (Junior College).

They took their second catcher on the day, Robby Kidwell Jr. He is from Brunswick Community College. They took Joshua Walker in the 37th round. He is an LHP out of New Haven. Daniel Alfonzo, a 3B out of high school was the next pick. He has ties to a former Met. Two high school pitchers, Noah Nunez of California and Ron Taylor in Texas, were the final picks of the day.

Robby Kidwell, Jr. was a  C/OF with a 6-3 200 lb. frame from Leonardtown, MD who attended Chopticon. Kidwell has long lean build with room to fill out. Hits from a square stance, toe tap trigger, hits to all fields with a line drive swing plane. Flat load with hands, makes consistent contact. Defensively, accurate throws, feet work well, has quick transfer and release.
