- You are drafted and you get Tommy John right away, you have to wonder what are (the Mets) thinking of you then? I was advancing slowly (through the minor leagues). I started seeing guys who were drafted higher than me and signed for more money than me getting released. I was 24 in High-A and you don’t want to think about (finding another career), but I knew I had to prove myself. So I had to figure this out.
