- 19th round – Nelfi Zapata: the HS C was a favorite of mine due to his name, his stature (6′ 0″, 203) and his power hitting exploits as a high schooler.Â Zapata appeared in 35 games for the GCL Mets, and finished with a line of .261/.341/.370 in 119 at bats, hitting just 1 home run.Â He started off on fire, hitting .533 in June, but cooled to .246 in July and froze at .186 in August.Â He did not fare well on the road but in home games had a line of .309/.409/.455.Â With 4 catchers on the roster manager Julio Franco used Zapata as his primary catcher.
- 20th round – Joseph August: the college OF started his career in Brooklyn but after playing 3 games was moved to the full-season class A Savannah Sand Gnats and wound up with the 6th most at bats of 7 OF on the roster despite joining the team 2 1/2 months after it’s season started.Â With the season winding down in Savannah he currently has a line of .210/.270/.290 in 124 at bats.Â The lefty hitter is batting a mere .196 against RH pitchers.
