Six-foot-4, 185-pound lefthander Kurtis Horne, a member of Team Canada with a long, lean and projectable build, pitched in Florida during the team’s spring schedule earlier this year, showing a mid-80s fastball that touched 87 and feel for a changeup.

The six-foot-five left-hander Horne also played in the recent Canadian junior team tour of the Dominican Republic. Both Wood and Horne were on the gold-medallist B.C. team at the 2013 Canada Summer Games in Sherbrooke, Que, with Wood earning the win with 10 strikeouts in the 5-0 victory over Ontario in the gold-medal game.

“My dream is to play pro ball,” said Horne, a Grade 12 Edward Milne student, who will take his commanding fastball to New Mexico Junior College in the fall.

he suspense was gone as Horne’s advisor had texted him to tell him in the 29th round that the Mets planned to select the left-handed pitcher very soon. And sure enough, in the 31st round, they did just that, grabbing the Langley Blaze southpaw.

“It has been my dream since I started playing baseball,” said Horne, a six-foot-five, 195-pound pitcher, about getting drafted and potentially one day playing professionally.

He turns 18 in the beginning of August.

Now comes the hard part: accepting what the Mets offer to turn pro or going to New Mexico Junior College for at least one season. Junior college players are eligible every year in the draft.

“I am stuck right now on what I should do,” he admitted.

“I know I can get better with a year of experience at school.”

Horne is in his first season with Langley, albeit in a limited role.

6'5/195 or 200, offers what, 30 to 40 pounds to add? Lots of projection there, I'd try like hell to sign him

That's got to be at tough call for an 18 year old, accept $200 maybe $250 K now or pitch a year in school and you have a shot, if you stay healthy and pitch well, at doubling that in a year.
