The Mets move forward with their draft picks.

Tuesday was day two of the MLB draft. We already spoke about the first five picks:

First round: LHP David Peterson
Second round: 3B Mark Vientos
Third round: OF Quinn Brodey
Fourth round: RHP Tony Dibrell
Fifth round: OF Matt Winaker

Now let’s take a look at the rest of Day 2 — rounds 6-10.

Sixth round

With the No. 187 pick, the Mets drafted RHP Marcel Renteria, a 22-year-old hailing from New Mexico State.

In 79 innings this past season, Renteria had a 4.78 ERA and a 1.41 WHIP with 86 strikeouts.

According to National Prospect Writer for D1 Baseball Frankie Piliere, the Mets have gotten a “high octane arm” with this pick. Renteria’s fastball sits between 94-97 mph — he even reached 99 mph this spring.
