Mets Pick #31 - Mets 31st Pick – RHP – Brendan Hardy – Harrison Central HS


Mets 31st Pick – RHP – Brendan Hardy – Harrison Central HS

NYFS –          

RHP Brendan Hardy - R/R, 12/15/99 - Harrison Central HS - 6'4", 190 lbs

Hardy played the infield in shortstop in high school but the Mets announced him as a pitcher. Hardy struck out 69 out of the 240 guys he faced on the mound. The Mets will likely need to go over slot to get a deal done with him.

Committed to Jones County (MS) JC.

Sun Herald –

           Hardy has a fastball that has hit as high as 94 miles an hour and consistently stays at 89-91. He finished 6-1 with a 1.51 ERA in nine appearances as a senior, striking out 69 in 51 innings.

The Mets haven't talked financial details yet and that will be a key part of negotiations if they are to land the 6-foot-4, 175-pound right-hander.
“If they don't come up with the right money, we're not going to go,” Hardy said. “I'll just go to JCJC and try again after a year. If an SEC school comes up with a good offer, I might have to go SEC. That's my dream — to play college.”

Jeff Haegar -

 Harrison Central’s @BrendanCedricH2 (RD 31/PK 920) will be signing his minor league contract with the New York Mets tomorrow in Port St. Lucie, FL. He’ll be foregoing his original commitment with JCJC to chase the dream

Which, by the way, is a BIG DEAL...

This is a highly talented prospect that was destined to go to college.

I applaud the Mets for snagging this one on the line.
