    Three highly questionable selections, IMO. When did AFL become a catch-up class for over-aged indy ball reclamation projects?? I like what we saw from Jannis the second half of the season. But a 29-year old in an advanced instructional league?
    All I can imagine is that the Mets are trying to hide their legitimate pitching prospects from view so the kids don’t get taken in the Rule 5 draft.

  • Michael Mayer

    Only have one spot for players below AA, and most of those prospects have seen time in the big leagues or already thrown enough innings making this group not that surprising at all.

  • Buddy3

    I agree. Lots of Rule 5 decisions and they don’t want anyone getting too good a look.

  • Nessim Toledano

    I think its quite, quite surprising. I’m not sure how you arrive at your analysis. But no matter how you slice it, 26, 28, 29 year olds going to AFL is exceedingly rare. It just isn’t done, and there are good reasons why its not. I’m pretty confident that if you check the rosters of each and every team, you will find very, very few (if any) in that age rage.

  • Nessim Toledano

    As for the AFL roster rules, they are non-binding and have become virtually meaningless over the past ten years or so. Just take a look at who the Mets sent to AFL last year – Nido, Oswalt, Molina, and Corey Taylor (not to mention Tim Tebow) – none of those had played a single game above advanced-A.
    Teams can (and do) request exceptions to the AFL roster rules, and those an exceptions are always, always granted. And the Mets have been sending mostly adv-A players for probably a decade now.

  • Nessim Toledano

    Yeah, I’m aware of the rule(s). I didn’t say the Mets had to send A-ball players. There are other AA players whose inclusion in AFL would make more sense when you weigh where they are in their development, their ages, and how much/long of a future they have with the organization, IMO.
    I think these picks are quite, quite surprising. I’m not sure how you arrive at your analysis. But when and where have you seen so many 26, 28, 29 year olds going to AFL? It is exceedingly rare.
    It just isn’t done, and there are good reasons why its not.
    I’m pretty confident that if we check the rosters of each and every team (and i will), we would find very, very few (if any) in that age rage.

    I think these picks are quite, quite surprising. I’m not sure how you arrive at your analysis, but when and where have you seen 28, 29 year olds going to AFL? It is exceedingly rare, and when it does happen, its for an extremely unusual situation (like Tim Tebow).
    I’m pretty confident that if we check the rosters of each and every team (and i will), we would find very, very few (if any) in that age range.
    Follow-up: after checking the AZL rosters, Jannis and Regnault are the only two players older than 26 (out of 180 total players), and they’re both significantly older (in minor league context).
