Meet Michael Conforto, the newest Met

With the 10th overall pick in the 2014 First-Year Player Draft, the Mets selected outfielder Michael Conforto from Oregon State. Check out some quick highlights in the film blow:

MLB.com’s scouting report is as follows:

Conforto has athletic bloodlines, as his father Mike was a Penn State linebacker and his mother Tracie (Ruiz) won two gold medals in synchronized swimming at the 1984 Olympics. Conforto considered a college football career like his dad but made a wise choice — he was the Pacific-12 Conference’s Freshman of the Year in 2012 and Player of the Year in 2013, when he led Oregon State to the College World Series.

Conforto’s signature tool is his left-handed power, which could produce 25-plus homers on an annual basis once he gets to the Major Leagues. He doesn’t get cheated at the plate, taking a big uppercut hack that produces nice loft on his drives. While he’s willing to take a walk when pitchers won’t challenge him, Conforto swings and misses too much to hit for a high average. Most of his value comes from his bat, because while he has some athleticism, he’s a left fielder with subpar speed, range and arm strength.
