11th Round Pick Tyler Bashlor “Set to Sign”

2013-MLB-draftAccording to WJCL’s Frank Sulkowski, RHP Tyler Bashlor out of South Georgia College is set to sign a contract with the Mets. Bashlor attended Calvary Day HS in Savannah, GA.

According to Baseball America, Bashlor:

has raised his profile over the last two years, ranking as BA’s No. 2 prospect in the Futures Collegiate League last summer and continuing to perform well this spring. …. Scouts report his fastball now sits at 92-94 mph and touches 97, and he flashes a solid-average slider with late break…. He didn’t show great command (52 IP, 30 BB, 81 SO), and pro teams view him strictly as a reliever.

It sounds like Bashlor will receive over $500,000 to sign. As an 11th round pick, everything over $100,000 counts against the Mets’ $6.99 million draft signing pool.
