Mets Sign 2009 Top Draft Pick

The Mets signed their top draft pick, second rounder Steven Matz, a left-handed pitcher from Long Island. He signed for a $895,000 signing bonus which is more than his slot as the 72nd overall pick.

The Mets didn’t have a first round pick because of free agent signings this past offseason.

There hasn’t been an official announcement from the team because Matz needs to pass a physical to consummate the deal.
