The Mets hope they can find another gem in the middle-to-late rounds of the draft just as they did in 2010, when they selected a certain shortstop out of Stetson University with the 272nd overall pick. Six years later, Jacob deGrom — now a pitcher — is a key part of the Mets’ vaunted young rotation.
