Outfielder Jack Schneider has retired after just three games for the Gulf Coast Mets. Although an official reason was not given, the 2017 11th round draft pick had not appeared in a game since getting with a pitch on July 17.

Schneider had received a $125,000 bonus largely due to his mid 90s fastball and raw power.

The Mets have also announced catcher Jeff Glenn was released. The 2009 ninth round draft pick had just played 25 games over the past two seasons as he’s been basically the 51s’ bullpen catcher.

It should be noted this is not the first time Glenn and the Mets parted ways. At the end of the 2015 season, Glenn was released only for the Mets to re-sign him before the Mets reported to Spring Training.  After the 2016 season, Glenn elected free agency only for the Mets to again re-sign him before Spring Training began.

Right-handed pitcher Daniel Bard has also retired after only one ugly appearance for the GCL Mets. He pitched only 0.2 of an inning for the GCL while allowing four runs on five walks and hit two batters.

    Well Damn. I was wondering what happened with Schneider bc he seemed like he had promise based off his scouting report. Oh well. Daniel Bard we hardly know ya.

    After the 10th Round $125000 is exactly slot.

    Glenn was actually released two weeks ago. I’m wondering why it took so long to be announced. My guess is Tyler Moore fills his role next year. He actually did some coaching at LSU last year, and almost retired from playing for that. If coaching is what he wants to do, this role can serve as another step in that direction .

    They all have promise. But only one out of 16 payers drafted ever makes it to the bigs. So 11th round is already iffy at best. The scouting reports we most often see always focus more on the pluses than the minuses. And thats if you’re looking at the whole report. If you’re reading an article in an NY paper, you’re only getting excerpts that the writer whose to show you. And thats even more focused on the upside.

    FYI regarding Eudor Garcia’s release a few months back: two weeks later, MLB suspended him for 100 games for drug use, third offense. If he comes back to affiliated baseball, he will have to serve the suspension at that time. I’ve got to assume that the Mets already knew about the impending suspension when they released him.
    Meanwhile, Garcia has landed on his feet. He signed with Sioux City of the independent American Association, pretty much the highest level of play in indy ball and a surprisingly good landing spot for an advanced-A player. He slashed .308/.338/.462 and the team has already exercised its club option on him for 2018.

    Let the musical chairs game begin. Also flying under the radar: Josh Edgin declared free agency a couple of days ago. I imagine we’ll see a mass exodus (a Metsodus?) from the Vegas roster over the next few days/weeks, given all of the journeymen free agents they signed last year and the four home-grown players who’ve reached free agent eligibility.

    Every choice in the top 10 rounds has an assigned value, and the total
    for each of a club’s selections equals what it can spend in those rounds
    without incurring a penalty. Any bonus money above $125,000 given to an
    individual player picked in rounds 11-40 also counts against a team’s
    bonus pool.

    I didn’t realize it went up in the new CBA. Thanks
