2011 Draft - Bradley Marguez, Jonathan Clark, Travis Taijeron, Dustin Lawley, Mason Robbins


16 (492) CF Bradley Marquez  -  Marguez is the first of five CFers
 picked in a row. This was basically a high school football star that was committed to Texas Tech. He did play baseball, and there was a deal in place that he could play in the Mets system while maintaining his eligibility to play college baseball. A very raw project who is a super athlete and Mets fans have now been aided after he suffered a season-ending knee injury. There were already chatter that he was going to give up football at the end of this season, so, I assume, if the knee heal, he will join the Mets full time. So far, 30-Abs for Kingport (.267). He will play 2013 as a 20-year old, so I’d send him back to Kingsport to learn the game.

17 (522) CF Jonathan Clark -  Clark was a college boy who has been used only as a fill-in player. Looks to be a roster fill. Played for 4 teams in the past two years (174-AB, .195)

18 (552) CF Travis Taijeron -  another college player who has had two excellent seasons (2010 –Brooklyn - .299/.387/.557/.943, 9-HR, 44-RBI) and (2011 – Savannah - .291/.401/.548/.949, 12-HR, 44-RBI in basically half a season). The down side is he was promoted to St. Lucie and tanked (.203, 7-HR). Still, that’s 19-HRs in one season and he needs a full season at St. Lucie under his belt to determine his future.

19 (582) CF Dustin Lawley -  Lawley looked like just another 19th round college pick, but, he had a good season after the draft for Kingsport (232-AB, 9-HR, 43-RBI, .284), followed by a halfway decent season with a repeat of pop in Savannah this past year (.261, 14-HR, 66-RBI). The Mets think they may have a power bat here and sent him to the AFL for some more work. Now playing 3B which should wake up Aderlin Rodriguez.

20 (612) CF Mason Robbins  -  Robbins was a big time high school prospect that the Mets hoped to convince not to go to college like he projected. It didn’t work.
