In an article that appeared in the College Baseball Daily in 2009, its author, Brian Foley, wrote this about the Mets 2011 third-round draft choice, Logan Verrett:
If Verrett can become a more polished pitcher and get more consistent in throwing strikes, he can challenge Gerrit Cole for the top spot in the 2011 MLB Draft. We believe that Verrett will be able to find his game this season and become a solid starter in the Baylor rotation.
Cole was drafted #1 in 2011; Verrett was #101. If and when Verrett signs, I’ll be curious to see if he can live up to Foley’s words. If he can, he could be the steal of the draft.
