The Mets gave Matz $895,000. He had been committed to Coastal Carolina. The Mets needed to sign Matz, who was their one major upside play of this draft. Matz has some violence in his delivery but he's athletic and has shown feel for both a changeup and a curveball while touching 94.As John Manuel pointed out at Baseball America:
[Matz] received almost $400,000 more than the commissioner’s office recommended slot.BA also notes that the Mets signed 9th round catcher Jeff Glenn for $150,000.
It appears that the Mets missed out on signing hard throwing right-handers, fifth rounder Damien Magnifico and sixth-rounder David Buchanan.
