In the past I haven't paid much attention to the draft a side from who the Mets drafted, but this year my interest is peaked as I'll be attending more New York-Penn League games this summer.
The draft will supply a majority of players on New York-Penn League rosters.
Many of the players who play in the New York-Penn League will never make it to the major leagues, but there are a few who do. It will be interesting to see who the big prospects are that land in Troy, Brooklyn, and Burlington this summer.
Last season, I got a chance to see Mets 2011 1st round pick Brandon Nimmo play for the Brooklyn Cyclones in Vermont against the Vermont Lake Monsters.
