I believe some article I read on our class stated the Mets actually went for quantity this year over quality, which was what they did previous years.


It was actually a tweet from Matt Ehalt:

Mets big July 2 signing was outfielder Alexander Ramirez for $2.05 million, source confirms.

The team changed its signing strategy this year going more for a quantity approach. They had been big-game hunting last few years.

Rafael Perez is back and he's even said he prefers playing the numbers game.

Don't necessarily agree with the quantity over spending big on less amount of players but it is what it is....

But thats not what these guys are paid to do, nor what we are looking for them to do, right?

When it comes to 16 year old kids, the quanity approach makes sense. The player is in the middle of puberty and get a growth spurt and all of sudden be 2 inches taller and add 3-5mph on a fastball. Signing 3-4 players for huge money doesn't mean success. Michael Ynoa was a stud prospect who got 5 million, where is he now?

Have we heard any other signing bonus news? Just wondering who else we gave money to.

Of the 34 confirmed signings, 27 are 16 years old, 4 17's and 3 18's.

That's and extremely high number of 16's signed by the Mets. In 2018 16 out of 58 signings and in 2017 16 of 44 signings were 16 years old.

With that many 16 years old signed they may have used quite a bit of their bonus pool.

Major league baseball is discussing a 20-round international draft concept, with a goal of implementing the draft as soon as 2020, with 2021 another possibility.


Mlb officials met yesterday with international club personnel in miami and told them that owners are in support on an international draft and want it in place as soon as possible. Mlb solicited feedback from international scouting officials on its draft concept, so a lot of the specifics—including the number of rounds, when a draft would begin and other details—are still likely to change.

An international draft is subject to collective bargaining with the mlb players' association, so once mlb finalizes an internal proposal, the union would need to sign off. The two sides are currently in midterm bargaining over the current collective bargaining agreement, which runs through the end of the 2021 season.




Quote:
One of the bigger twists in mlb's latest draft concept is the draft order. Instead of replicating the order of the june draft, which would reward the team with the worst record the previous season with two no. 1 overall draft picks, the teams picking at the top of the draft would rotate annually by division. So one year, for example, the teams in the national league east would get the top five overall picks. The next year another division would get the top five picks, and it would rotate every six years.

While trainers for international players and many international scouts were opposed to a draft when mlb and the union were discussing it in the last cba negotiation, that sentiment has shifted. There is now a more split camp among both trainers and scouts about an international draft, with many of them now more receptive to the idea as a way to slow down the acceleration of early agreements that has players committing to teams when they are 13 and 14 years old.

If the draft order is going to rotate by year then logically it should snake as well. That won’t happen, but it would be fair.

Not sure why snake would improve that. I would think that within division you’d still want worst to first m

Mets signed Dominican RHP Amaury Pereyra on 8/9/19.

Little old at 19, but nice size at 6'5" 198.

Assigned to the DSL Mets2.

This one's pretty remarkable. The Mets have signed a Venezuelan pitcher at 17 who's throwing 99 mph:

@BaseballAmerica reports a #Mets international signing that went under the radar: 6-foot-4, 19-year-old Venezuelan RHP Robert Dominguez, who has been clocked up to 99 mph.
