Sounds Like He's Signing

Late in the evening as he and his friends set up a badminton net, Kidwell received a call from Mets representative Danial Cole.

“He asked if I’d want to go in this round,” Kidwell said. “I said I just wanted the opportunity to go play and make dreams come true and make my way up to the big leagues. He then asked if I wanted to go to school or not and I told him I just wanted to play baseball and I’m not about to give up that opportunity.”

Kidwell had signed to attend the University of North Carolina-Wilmington the past two seasons. But that plan is now on hold, though Kidwell said that was a tough decision to make.

Nice get, especially this late in the draft.

Maybe I'm over-analyzing but he looks a little tall for a catcher. I'm not sure his body type will stay behind the plate. That said, I'm always happy to have a (CC not HS) catcher in the draft. Tough position to project.

He is a bit taller than average but there are guys that tall that make it work.

His pop times in the video above are fine, fwiw. Roughly major league average.

For a 19 year old catcher? Only 20k?

Take these kinds of shots all the time from rounds 20 to 40.
