The Mets have invited 23 year old, OF Matt Den Dekker to spring training camp along with RHP Matt Harvey. Many Mets fans do not know who he is, so here is a good chance to take a look at some footage that I came across along with a scouting report.
Den Dekker is Best known for his version of “The Catch” in the 2010 College World Series, Den Dekker had a stellar career at the University of Florida prior to signing for a considerable bonus given his status as a fourth year senior. Click here for Footage of "The Catch"
OF Matt Den Dekker Scouting Report From Scouting the Sally:
Physical Projection: Listed at 6’1″, 205 lbs., Den Dekker is well-proportioned and looks the part of a college athlete who has benefited from a major college strength and conditioning program. As an athlete, he’s certainly not bursting with tools, but he makes the most out of his physical attributes and they play up due to his being a “grinder” who understands his strengths well.
