7-8-10: - The Mets signed Vincente Lupo as a non-drafted international free agent. He supposedly has a strong bat and hits for average.
8-9-11 from Paul DePodesta: - And there’s an outfielder named Vicente Lupo -- the kid who got really sick last fall. Really, really sick. He’s an outfielder from Venezuela. He was the one who had malignant hypothermia. He’s back and playing
8-22-11: - #19 – OF Vincente Lupo – You will start hearing more of this name next year. Lupo was signed by the Mets with an estimated $500-600K bonus and was the 25th best ranked prospect form Latin America. He is also considered to have plus to plus-plus raw power, but became very sick after the draft. He’s fine now and the 17-yr. old is getting his feet wet, and his strength back, for the DSL1 team. I have him a little high in 2012, starting off for K-Port. His illness may push him back to the GCL team, but, believe me, he’s coming stateside.
