Drafted in the 4th round (140th overall) by the New York Mets in 2012 (signed for $225,000)
Kaupe may be the shortest player in this year's draft. He's listed at 5-foot-7, but some believe he's actually a few inches shorter. Kaupe's best tool is his speed. He's a plus runner and may even be a 70 on the 20-80 scouting scale. Kaupe fits best defensively at second base and has good hands and solid-average arm strength. A switch-hitter, Kaupe has excellent bat control and strike-zone awareness. He will be a singles hitter, but does have some gap power and pullside loft. With a commitment to Central Arizona JC, Kaupe was considered signable and should agree to a below-slot deal.
