Flexen looks like a legit prospect for the Mets as well.

• Chris Flexen, rhp, Mets. Don’t read too much into Flexen’s status as a 14th-round pick out of last year’s draft. The Mets went well over slot ($374,400) to sign the projectable prep righty out of Newark, Calif., and he’s shined brightly with Rookie-level Kingsport this season. After throwing a nine-inning, 11-strikeout shutout yesterday in which he allowed two hits, Flexen ranks among the Appy League leaders in several categories, including ERA (2.14), strikeouts (56), shutouts (two—one of them a seven-inning complete game) and WHIP (0.95). The 19-year-old Flexen shows uncanny command of a low 90s fastball and can spin a quality breaking ball, making him perhaps the Mets’ top arm at the short-season level.
