    A 24th-round pick of the Mets out of high school, Verdon is a physical lefthanded masher who hit 26 doubles and 12 home runs this spring and likely lost some more to the deep alleys and high walls of Tony Gwynn Stadium. The 6-foot-3 Verdon is just now learning to tap into his power. He used to get out in front and hit balls the other way, but has made strides letting the ball get deep and using his strength and leverage to lift balls in the air. Verdon’s power is real, but he has holes in his swing and doesn’t always find the barrel. He is limited defensively to first base, so he’ll have to mash to rise in pro ball.
