2012 Draft Recap

2 comments


As we head towards the 2020 MLB Draft, we are going to detail the last ten years of Mets drafts.  Today, we look at 2012.

The Astros drafted Carlos Correa #1 and after has put a 24.5 WAR in 5 seasons.  I am sure the Astros are very happy with this pick. 

The Mets picked Gavin Cecchini in the first round, 12th pick overall.  Gavin was signed as a minor league free agent by the Arizona Diamondbacks and was released last week as part of the D-Backs release of 62 minor leaguers.  

The Mets also drafted Kevin Plawecki in the supplemental 1st round, Corey Oswalt in the 7th round, Tomas Nido in the 8th round, Paul Sewald in the 10th round, and Chris Flexen in the 14th round. 

The full Mets list is below. 

Here are some other notable picks:

1st Round: #6 Chicago Cubs, Albert Almora OF; #10 Colorado, David Dahl, OF; #11 Oakland, Addison Russell, SS; #16 Washington, Lucas Giolito (Mack thought this is who the Mets would take); # 18 LA Dodgers, Corey Seager, SS;

#19 St. Louis, Michael Wacha, RHP; 22 Toronto, Marcus Stroman, RHP;   

Supplemental 1st Round: #32 Minnesota, Jose Berrios, RHP; #36 St. Louis, Stephen Piscotty, 3B; #38 Milwaukee, Mitch Haniger, OF; #39 Texas, Joey Gallo, 3B; #41 Houston, Lance McCullers, RHP;

So it's draft the suspect hitters and uncontrollable pitchers? That sounds like Sandy Alderson, alright.

What a horrible draft 2012 was for the Mets. Starting with Cecchini, who nobody thought would be drafted until well into the second round.
