In an very early look at next year’s draft, Minor League Ball projects that the Mets will select University of Miami SS Carlos Correa, writing:
“With the loss of Jose Reyes, the Mets don’t really have many players in the majors nor in the minors to fill the void. But Correa could fill that gap with solid defensive tools and outstanding power.”
In November last year, Perfect Game had the following to say about Correa:
“The emerging power and improved plate approach are very encouraging signs for Correa, whose scouting notes from the 2011 World Showcase in January included “future plus hitter with adjustments/maturity, too spread/long right now…projects for power…raw with upside, good bat speed, approach needs work.” Fast forward ten months and the latest set of notes include praise such as “sound hitting approach…power approach at plate…impact type bat…power to all fields.”
