MLB Draft Live Blog

The Mets select Wyoming high schooler Brandon Nimmo with their first round pick.  Nimmo has a ton of upside, notsomething that can be said of many of New York's recent picks.  Nimmo has had trouble getting on the field.  He's had knee issues as well as the issue that there's no high school baseball in Wyoming.  He's been forced to play American Legion ball which has made scouts wary of the quality of pitching Nimmo has faced.  He has the arm to play right field and is all upside.  He's a name that won't resurface for several years down the line while he develops in the lower recesses of the minor leagues.
