Mets #1 Pick OF Brandon Nimmo officially signs

The New York Mets late last night have signed outfielder Brandon Nimmo, their first-round pick in the June amateur draft, to a minor league deal with a $2.1 million signing bonus.

Nimmo, of Cheyenne East High in Wyoming, was taken with the 13th pick overall. He played American Legion ball because Wyoming doesn't have high school ball. He hit .551 with 14 homers, 99 RBIs and 33 stolen bases this year and helped Post 6 win its third straight state title.

The Mets also agreed to terms with their third-round pick, right-hander Logan Verrett of Baylor, their 15th-round pick, infielder Phillip Evans of La Costa Canyon High near San Diego, and their 16th-rounder, outfielder Bradley Marquez of Odessa High in Texas.

Mets Select #13 Pick - OF Brandon Nimmo

The Mets Shock the world by not taking a pitcher and going after a outfielder.

The Mets selected Brandon Nimmo, a high school outfielder from Wyoming, with the 13th pick in the First-Year Player Draft tonight.

His high school, Cheyenne East, does not field a baseball team, but scouts flocked to his American Legion games.

The Mets opted for Nimmo over a large raft of available college pitchers. Perhaps they figured they could find comparable arms in the sandwich round, when they pick 44th.
