With the 2021 MLB Draft two months away, ESPN's first mock has the Mets selecting UCLA second baseman Matt McLain at No. 10 overall.
McLain broke his thumb last week and will miss some time, but ESPN's Kiley McDaniel doesn't feel it will impact his draft stock.
The 21-year-old McLain is hitting .325 with nine homers, eight doubles, two triples, nine stolen bases, 27 RBI, and 38 runs scored in 39 games this season.
If the Mets were to take McLain, he would be the first college bat drafted by New York since they selected Michael Conforto No. 10 overall in 2014.
Conforto rose quickly and was promoted to the Mets straight from Double-A in July of 2015.
