The Mets have the sixth overall pick in next June's MLB Amaetur Draft, and MLB.com's first Mock Draft has them choosing between a left-handed college pitcher and a high school shortstop.
Jim Callis has the Mets drafting South Florida LHP Shane McClanahan, writing...
"He does have Tommy John surgery in his past, but he also has the most electric arm among this Draft's left-handers."
McClanahan's fastball sat between 93 and 96 MPH last season, but he needs to refine his secondary pitches and command, Callis wrote last summer.
Jonathan Mayo has the Mets drafting Santiago HS (California) SS Brice Turang, writing...
"Once thought to be the top guy in the class, Turang saw his star fade a tiny bit, but his overall tools up the middle won't let him drop far."
Turang should be able to stay at shortstop, has an advanced approach at the plate -- with projection for power -- and has plus speed on offense and defense, Mayo wrote last summer.
McClanahan is rated as the fifth-best Draft prospect, while Turang is the seventh-best, according to MLB.com.
