Mack Draft: – AJ Capone, Dylan Covey, Danny Hultzen, Mitchell Lambson, Mike McGee

The Watertown Wizards announce the signing of former Lowville Acadamy standout AJ Capone to the 2011 roster. The second year Golden Knight (St. Rose College) will see a much more prominent role this season and is expected to backstop St. Rose’s march toward a 2011 Northeast 10 playoff campaign. – http://www.collegesummerbaseball.net/2011/02/aj-capone-st-rose.html?utm_source=twitterfeed&utm_medium=twitter  

Dylan Covey (San Diego)- is a 6’0 200 pound righthanded pitcher out of Maranatha High School and Pasadena California. He was selected with the 14th overall selection in the 2010 MLB Draft but during his physical it was discovered he suffered from Type 1 Diabetes. He decided to head to the University of San Diego as he learned to control his new situation. – http://www.collegebaseballdaily.com/2011/02/14/2011-cbd-season-preview-freshmen-to-watch  

LHP Danny Hultzen Virginia 6’2 1/2 195 L/L – also a quality hitter and first base man, Hultzen has a chance to be a 3-4 man in ML rotation, shows enough ML velo on Fb, range is 88-93, most are 89-91 with sink when down, gets hurt middle up in zone, also cb tends to flatten out and backdoor type action vs RHH, needs to lead with elbow and run cb in on RHH. Also straight change that’s workable now and should improve in pro ball with more exposure. http://xmlbscout.angelfire.com  

Mitchell Lambson: Jr. – LHP – Arizona State – Lambson has made an amazing 70 relief appearances in his first two seasons at Arizona State. He earned first team All-Pac-10 and Freshman All-American honors after going 9-5 with five saves in 31 relief appearances in 2009. In his only career start he fired a complete game against Washington to earn the win. Lambson was even more dominant last year, going 8-2 with three saves, a 2.16 ERA and 96 strikeouts in 75.0 IP, while working in tandem with former ASU closer Jordan Swagerty. He earned the win against Arkansas in game one of the Tempe Super Regional after striking out seven in five shutout innings to help the Sun Devils to a second straight College World Series appearance. Lambson’s two-year totals are a 17-7 record with eight saves, a 2.61 ERA, 195 strikeouts, and a .181 opponent average. – http://collegebaseball360.com/2011/02/14/top-11-college-baseball-relievers-to-watch-in-2011  

Mike McGee – Florida State – McGee has played at a high level for Mike Martin’s Seminoles since his Freshman All-American season in 2008. He batted .344 with six home runs and 34 RBIs, while going 7-1 on the mound that season. His offensive numbers jumped to .378/19/78 in 2009 to go with a 6-2 record. He batted .328/17/78 with a 4-1 record and 13 saves last year to help Florida State reach the College World Series. McGee was drafted by the Chicago Cubs in the 37th round in 2007 and was picked in the 41st round by the Arizona Diamondbacks last year. He opted to return for his senior season, in part because most pro scouts see him as a pitcher, while he would like to remain an everyday player.- http://collegebaseball360.com/2011/02/07/top-college-baseball-outfielders-to-watch-in-20116

    Mack,

    If the Mets don’t come away with any of these arms; Archie Bradley, Tyler Beede, Taylor Jungmann, Henry Owens, Dylan Bundy, or Bubba Starling, it will be an epic failure.

    The last player I want to see this team draft is Hultzen. I have a feeling that’s where they’re going.
