9 272 New York Mets Jake deGrom RHP Fla. $95,000
A two-way talent at Stetson who was a shortstop/pitcher, deGrom started the year as a closer but wound up moving into the rotation and establishing himself as Stetson's best pitcher. He threw 89-93 mph on scout day with command, and he had a strong outing going head-to-head with Chris Sale of Florida Gulf Coast. He throws strikes as his arm works well, he's athletic and has a clean delivery. There were some reports that deGrom, at 6-foot-4, 185 pounds, was hitting 94 mph with his fastball late in the year, and he has a solid if inconsistent slider to go with it. His changeup is in its nascent stages.
