In 2008, the Mets had one of their better drafts in recent years. That year they selected five players who have since made their major league debuts. With the 18th overall pick, the Mets took Ike Davis, who rewarded them with a 32 HR, 90 RBI campaign in 2012. They also selected Kirk Nieuwenhuis (3rd round), Josh Satin (6th round), Collin McHugh (18th round) and Chris Schwinden (22nd round).
Nieuwenhuis and McHugh contributed to the team this year and are expected to continue to be a part of the team’s future, while Satin and Schwinden may be able to fill in for injured players in 2013. There was another player who was drafted by the Mets in that year’s draft who was expected to be a regular on the major league team by now. Instead, he’s become a regular on the disabled list and has not advanced past AA-Binghamton. That player is Reese Havens.
Will Reese Havens ever wear this uniform at Citi Field?
