Trivia Friday: 2020 Mets Drafted After 5th Round
With Rob Manfred’s taking advantage of a global pandemic to implement his plan to contract 42 minor league teams and eliminate opportunities for minor league players, the 2020 draft will be limited to five rounds. With that, many teams are going to miss out on drafting the next great player.
For that, we need not look any further than Mike Piazza who was a 62nd round draft pick. However, it is more than that. A significant portion of this year’s Mets team was drafted after the fifth round. Can you name those players? Good luck!
