The New York Mets will be looking to make a splash in the 2014 MLB draft, likely in the form of a hitter. The Mets have a serious problem at the plate, so a hitter should be the guy to target.
However, that doesn’t mean a new arm should be ruled out. The Mets could look to add to their already-impressive pitching depth this year.
There is lots of talent in the 2014 draft, which will begin on June 5, and the Mets will be hoping to land a future star. Considering the Mets' best hitting prospects are all guys we won’t see for a few years (Brandon Nimmo, Dominic Smith, etc.), don’t be surprised if the Mets go for a more polished prospect who can make an impact sooner rather than later.
Here are five prospects to keep your eye on when the Mets are on the board with the 10th overall selection in the draft.
