Mets News: Mets select RHP Ricky Knapp in the eighth round (236th overall)


Mets News:

Mets select RHP Ricky Knapp in the eighth round (236th overall)

Knapp benefitted from the instruction of his father, Rick, the Tigers former pitching coach, growing up. He has the kind of feel for the game and pitchability that might be expected for the son of a Major League pitching coach. Knapp adds and subtracts from his fastball as the situation dictates, but generally throws around 90 mph. He also throws a changeup, which is his best pitch, as well as a curveball and slider. Knapp commands his whole arsenal well and all four of his pitches have a chance to be at least Major League-average offerings.
