Current, former Mets excited for selection of Kumar Rocker


Are the Mets excited about getting Vanderbilt RHP Kumar Rocker at No. 10 overall in the 2021 MLB Draft?

You bet – just ask Mets scouting director Marc Tramuta, who said “Don’t walk past the obvious – for us, this was an obvious pick, an extremely talented young man that we just couldn’t pass” after taking Rocker.

And, while Tramuta warned that despite three seasons in a pro-style prep program at Vandy, Rocker won’t be fast-tracked…well, the current Mets are excited for their newest teammate, whenever he gets to Queens.

And, Rocker even got some love from a former legendary Mets power righty:

“It was awesome, everything and more. I’m excited to move forward,” Rocker told MLB Network shortly after his selection.
