Mets sign Blake Forsythe

Mets sign third-round pick Forsythe

According to MetsBlog.com, the Mets have signed their third-round draft choice, catcher Blake Forsythe. He will be assigned to the Gulf Coast Mets.

The 6’2, 220-pound Forsythe played collegiately at Tennessee, where he hit 30 home runs over his final two years at the school. The Mets were able to sign the righty-hitting slugger, convincing him to forego his senior season.

With Forsythe signed, the Mets now have three of their top five picks left to sign: first-round pick Matt Harvey, a pitcher from North Carolina, Matt den Dekker, a centerfielder out of Florida, and Greg Peavey, a pitcher from Oregon State. The Mets’ fourth-round selection, Cory Vaughn currently leads the New York-Penn League in home runs with four in 12 games, as a member of the Brooklyn Cyclones.
