It seems I’m weeks behind on my draft pick signings.
The Mets and their second-round draft pick, Robbie Shields, agreed to terms on July 8.
The New York Mets today announced that they signed infielder Robbie Shields, the team's second selection (103rd overall) from the 2009 First Year Player Draft. Shields, a 6-0, 220-pound shortstop out of Florida Southern College will report to Brooklyn (A) of the New York-Penn League.
