Ivan Wilson

This is a fun pair of toolsy outfielders from the 2013 draft. They?re both raw, athletic types. Either might never hit in advanced-A, or either could figure it out and become an above average MLB contributor. Combined with Brandon Nimmo, these three give the Mets the most upside in centerfield that I can recall in the last 10 years.

In the third round, at #76, with the compensation pick for not signing Teddy Stankiewicz last year, the Mets picked HS CF Ivan Wilson from Ruston (LA) HS. With their own pick, the Mets grabbed HS RHP Casey Meisner from Cypress Woods (TX) HS.

MLB.com's scouting report on Wilson is awfully intriguing:

Wilson's combination of tools and athleticism is among the best of this year's prep outfielders. He is listed at 6-foot-3, 220 pounds with good strength and plus speed. Wilson, out of Ruston H.S. (La.), has good power and can hit home runs to any part of the ballpark.
At ESPN.com, Keith Law had Wilson ranked as his #86 draft prospect.
