21 (642) P John Gant - Gant was another high school draftee that finished the 2010 season with the GCL-Mets (0-1, 6.48). He had a very good season in 2011 for a very bad Kingsport team (3-3, 4.55) whch featured dominant pitching during his last few outing. He ended the season with a late promotion to Savannah. 0-1 (10.38). It’s hard to say where he will slot in during the 2013 season. Savannah will be stocked with the old Brooklyn rotation and he just might be odd man out like Marcos Camarena was this past year.
22 (672) SS Casey Turgeon - did not sign and went on to the University of Florida (.281).
23 (702) C Jeffrey Diehl - Diehl signed late and didn’t play the 2011 season. He was given a fair shot in 2012 (171 ABs) with Kingsport in 2012 and hit .251/.291/.404/.695. Participated in the Instructs this past September so he should move on to Brooklyn next season.
24 (732) 1B Tant Shepherd - four year college roster fill that did get some time in Kingsport (137-AB, .241) last season. Has no chance to go full season team in 2013.
25 (762) P A.J. Reed - High school player that didn’t sign and went on to Kentucky (5-3, 2.52).
