Stephen JOSIAH @StephenJosiah13 -

Chandler Avant is round 30 for the #Mets in the #MLBDraft. Another four year senior (been a run of those, and expect the Mets to save a bunch of slot room by doing so), Chandler hails from the University of Alabama. He was born in '96 so he's old for this class. 

247 Sports –

           Alabama infielder Chandler Avant was selected in the 30th round (890 overall) in the 2018 MLB First-Year Player Draft, going to the New York Mets as a second baseman. Avant is the Tide’s third player taken on Wednesday and fifth overall in this year’s draft.

In 2018, Avant totaled a team-high 22 multi-hit efforts and a team-leading 12 multi-RBI performances while pacing UA in RBI with 38 and ranking second in runs scored with 37. He reached base safely in 47 of 55 games in his senior season, including reaching safely in the first 23 games of the 2018 slate.
After suffering a season-ending injury his sophomore year, Avant returned for his junior campaign to start all 54 games and close out the season with a .286 (66-231) average. The junior shortstop teamed up with sophomore second baseman Cobie Vance to turn 31 double plays, a total that tied for 10th in the conference during the regular season, while recording a league-leading 190 assists at short.

I accept your apology.

Steven was an ex-wrter here that doesn't practice what I preach.

I will remove his comment when I get on my computer.

Chandler looks like he did fine in 2018. Either headed for Kport or Bklyn.
