UPDATE - SIGNED - Mets 4th Rd. (#127 overall) Pick - RHP - Tony Dibrelli -


Dibrell won just one game in his first two seasons at Kennesaw State, but he hinted at his upside by earning All-Star recognition in the Cape Cod League last summer. He has emerged as easily the best college prospect in Georgia this spring, drawing physical comparisons to Edwin Jackson, a Peach State high school product. With a quick arm and a strong frame, Dibrell can run his fastball up to 96 mph and sit at 93-94. His velocity dipped at times later in the season, the result of throwing 110 or more pitches six times in his 14 starts. After trying different versions of a breaking ball in the past, he has mostly settled on a hard slider/cutter with late darting life. Dibrell can spin a curveball with good depth and has aptitude for throwing a changeup. His fastball, slider and changeup all can be plus pitches at their best, so he has the ingredients to start. To succeed in that role in pro ball, he'll have to continue to hone his strike-throwing ability.

Sounds like a decent pick.
