2014 Mets Draft Picks Rounds 4 Through 10:
Eudor Garcia, 3B, El Paso (Texas) CC, 4th Round:
2014 Stats: .410 BA , 9 HR, 49 RBI's - 55 Games
Mets Scouting Director Says: "We went and worked him out," Tanous said. "He has massive power. A left-handed hitter. Has absolutely destroyed the junior-college division that he's played in. Most valuable player. Player of the year. He's definitely an offensive player. We feel like he'll be fine at third base. But when you draft this type of guy, you take him for his bat."
Josh Prevost, RHP, Seton Hall, 5th Round:
2014 Stats: 12-2 1.62 ERA 111 K's in 116 Innings
Mets Scouting Director says: "He's a really interesting player -- a 6-8 pitcher from Seton Hall," Tanous said. "The biggest surprise when you see him pitch is his actual command and control of his pitches. He's a fastball-slider-changeup pitcher. We've had him up to 94 mph. He probably pitches anywhere between 90-93 mph. Supreme strike-thrower. Tremendous competitor. He has a lot of the things that we look for and still, as a college player, has some upside."
Tyler Moore, C, LSU , 6th Round:
2014 Stats: .301 BA 6 HR 37 RBI's - Plays Catcher and Corner Infield - Lefty bat
Mets Scouting Director Says: "A left-handed hitting catcher. He does a lot of things that we like offensively," Tanous said. "He has an advanced approach. He has power. Grinds out at-bats. So we're really excited we were able to get him at the spot we ended up getting him. He didn't play every game, and then down the stretch he played quite a bit. Tommy Jackson and Max Semler, our scouts in that region, really did a terrific job staying on him and staying with him. If it wasn't for that, we probably wouldn't have been able to land a prospect like that. He's a catcher (as opposed to other positions he's played). He's really an advanced guy behind the plate. They kind of have a rotation there at LSU. There's nothing we can do about that. But this is a catcher. We drafted him for the purpose of being a catcher."
Brad Wieck, LHP, Oklahoma City U., 7th Round:
2014 Stats: 5-5 3.23 ERA 69.2 IP, 111 K's - LHP that can be very dominant...
Mets VP of Baseball operations: Depodesta says, "He's a powerful left-hander. He's 6-foot-9. We had him at 94 mph with a good breaking ball. We do think he's got a chance to be a good one."
Dash Winningham 1B, Trinity Catholic HS, 8th Round:
2014 Stats: N/A
Dash Winningham is a 2014 1B/LHP with a 6-2 220 lb. frame from Ocala, FL who attends Trinity Catholic HS. Big strong thick build, looks like he's firmed up and trimmed down over the last 5-6 months. Left handed hitter, open to closed approach, swings hard and has very good raw bat speed, aggressive hitter, timing works well and barrel is consistently in the zone at the right time, looking to pull and lift the ball and has the strength/skills to do it, swung the bat very well in both games and batting practice. Limited to first base defensively but has sound footwork and soft hands. Dan Vogelbach profile. Good student, signed with Florida Gulf Coast.
