2014 Mets Draft Picks - Rounds 4 Through 10

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."
