Mets sign first round Draft pick outfielder Jarred Kelenic

The New York Mets today announced that the club has signed outfielder Jarred Kelenic from Waukesha West High School (WI), the sixth overall pick in the first-round of the 2018 First-Year Player Draft. He will take batting practice at Citi Field and be introduced to the media on June 27 prior to the Pirates-Mets 7:10 p.m. game. Kelenic will be assigned to the rookie-level Gulf Coast Mets.
 
Kelenic, 18, was listed by Baseball America as the best high school hitter in the draft with the third-best strike-zone discipline by a prep player. He graduated from High School one semester early to focus on the draft.
 
The lefthanded-swinging Kelenic never played high school baseball, instead played for USA Baseball's national U-18 team. This spring he played on a Wisconsin select travel team.
 
The 6-1, 196-pounder was the first Wisconsin native ever to be drafted in the Top 10. Kelenic was the only outfielder in high school to be unanimously named to Baseball America's prep first team in a pre-season vote of Major League scouting directors.
 
Kelenic hit two doubles, two homers and had five RBI in nine games to help Team USA capture the 2017 U-18 World Cup. He participated in the high school Home Run Derby at Marlins Park during MLB's All-Star weekend last year.
 
Kelenic was 1-3 with two walks and scored the winning run in the bottom of the 11th inning in the 2017 Under Armour All-America Baseball Game.
 
In 2016, he was named the MVP of USA Baseball's U-18 team that won the gold medal at the Pan American Games. He hit .407 (11-27) with six runs scored, two doubles, two triples, one home run, seven RBI with a 1.241 OPS in eight games. He homered against Cuba in the gold medal game.
