Clint Everts - #61
5th Professional Season (no major league experience)
6'2" 195 pounds
Bats S/Throws R
The Good: Was a high school teammate of Scott Kazmir and was drafted by Omar when he was the Expos GM. Throws a low-90s fastball, which allowed him to post an impressive 10.2 K/9 innings in 2009.
The Bad: Needs to improve his walk rate more (decreased last year to 3.9 W/9, but it was 4.7 W/9 over his career). Has battled injuries throughout his career. Started last year in A ball (finished in AAA).
Role: Was sent down last week, and will face a long, improbable road to make the Mets this year. If he makes his major league debut this season with the Mets, it's probably a sign that injuries ravaged this team once again.
