Jarred Kelenic
19-Year-Old OutfielderOF
2019 Fantasy Outlook
The Mets cashed out Kelenic before his full-season debut -- if they had not, Seattle reportedly would not have included Edwin Diaz in the deal. Through 12 games in the GCL, he looked like the best player from the 2018 draft. That production was unsustainable (.514 BABIP, 58.3 Pull%), but it made him the talk of the prospect community. The No. 6 overall pick was promoted to the Appy League, where his production normalized and we got a better sense of his true talent. He showed plus speed (11-for-12 on SB attempts), hit for power (.178 ISO) and demonstrated a good handle of the strike zone (11.0 BB%, 19.5 K%). The rep on Kelenic coming into the draft was that he may be the best prep hitter in the class. He had reverse splits (.256/.340/.426 in 200 PA vs. RHP, .409/.490/.636 in 51 PA vs. LHP), which will be something to track at Low-A. Using the whole field more often will allow him to reach his ceiling as a five-category OF2. Read Past Outlooks

December 3, 2018
Kelenic was traded from the Mets to the Mariners on Monday along with Jay Bruce, Anthony Swarzak, Justin Dunn and Gerson Bautista in exchange for Edwin Diaz, Robinson Cano and cash considerations, Joel Sherman of the New York Post reports.
Kelenic will wind up having spent just a few months with the organization that selected him sixth overall in the 2018 draft. In 56 games at the rookie-ball level, the center fielder hit .286/.371/.468, adding six homers and 15 steals. He's a potential cross-category contributor once he reaches the majors, though that's still several years away.
