FLUSHING, N.Y., August 1, 2021 – The New York Mets today announced the team has signed 19 of their 20 selections in the 2021 First-Year Player Draft.
The team did not agree to terms with RHP Kumar Rocker, the club’s first-round selection, who was drafted with the 10th overall pick in the 2021 First-Year Player Draft.
“This is clearly not the outcome we had hoped for and wish Kumar nothing but success moving forward,” said Acting General Manager Zack Scott. “We’re excited about the players we have signed and look forward to watching them develop and contribute to the organization in the years to come.”
Under the current rules of Major League Baseball, the Mets will receive a supplemental selection following the 10th pick in the 2022 First-Year Player Draft.
