FLUSHING, N.Y. – The New York Mets announced this week that the club has signed outfielder Pete Crow-Armstrong, the 19th overall pick in the first round from the 2020 First-Year Player Draft.

Crow-Armstrong, 18, was ranked by Baseball America as the 17th-best player in the 2020 Draft. MLB Pipeline has the high school outfielder ranked as the 20th-best prospect in this year’s draft class. Per MLB’s rankings, he is the seventh-ranked outfield prospect and the sixth-ranked high school position player.

The Harvard-Westlake High School (CA) senior entered the 2020 season on the Perfect Game Preseason All-American First Team. Before his senior season was halted, the left-handed batter and fielder was hitting .514 through 10 games for Harvard-Westlake, striking out just once in 42 at-bats. In his junior season, he batted .426 with three home runs and five triples.

The Sherman Oaks, California native has played for Team USA several times, suiting up for the 18U National Team in 2018 and 2019, the 15U National Team in 2017 and the 12U National Team in 2014. In 2019, he was named the U-18 Baseball World Cup All-World Center Fielder. He earned a gold medal as part of the 18U team that won the 2018 Pan-American Championships.

The six-foot, 175 pounder is the latest first-round selection from Harvard-Westlake High School. The program has also produced former first-round picks and current major leaguers Jack Flaherty (St. Louis), Max Fried (Atlanta) and Lucas Giolito (Chicago-AL).

The New York Mets also announced that the club has signed outfielder Isaiah Greene, the 69th overall pick from the 2020 First-Year Player Draft.

Greene, 18, was a second-round compensatory selection from Corona Senior High School (CA). The 6-1, 180-pounder was ranked 49th by Baseball America among this year’s draft prospects. MLB Pipeline had the Southern Californian ranked 62nd.

Greene’s speed is his best tool, grading out at a 65 on the 20-80 scouting scale according to MLB._com. His 6.48-second 60-yard dash time ranked in the 99th percentile among potential 2020 draftees recorded by _Perfect Game.
