The Mets today lost two minor league players, Paul Paez and Adrian Almeida, both left handed pitchers, in this year's MLB Rule 5 Draft according to MLB.com. Both had some stints with the Brooklyn Cyclones and were left unprotected.
Paez, a lefty reliever, spent 2016 with St. Lucie and Binghamton going 4-1 with a 3.88 ERA, all in relief. Almeida split 2016 with Kingsport and Brooklyn and was 0-4 and hada 5.92 ERA with the two squads. Paez will go to the Seattle Mariners with Almeida reporting to the Los Angeles Angels.
The Mets did not make any picks, as they had no room on their 40 man roster.
