Mets Draft – 25th Round – Laine Huffman


Mets Draft – 25th Round – Laine Huffman

 Laine Huffman is a 21 year old, 5’11’, 175 shortstop for the Long Beach State Dirtbags.  The school website noted the following:

Junior SS Laine Huffman…was selected in Round 25 by the New York Mets. It's the second straight season the Mets have drafted a Dirtbag after they spent a 7th Round pick on Austin McGeorge a year ago. Huffman took over the starting shortstop gig at Shortstop U this past season and hit .294 with 26 RBIs and 22 runs scored, hitting primarily in the No. 9 spot in the lineup.

We already have Scoundrels on the Mets...bring on the Dirtbags.   Not sure if his bat will get him far, but hopefully he gives pro ball a try.

By the way, McGeorge is doing very well for St Lucie in relief in his first full season.
