Cole Frenzel is getting his first-hand look at the New York Mets.
Frenzel, 21, was drafted by the Mets in the seventh round of the MLB draft in early June and was at Citi Field on Friday for the teamâ€™s game against the New York Yankees.
Frenzel is a 2008 Dickinson High School graduate and was an all-Pac 10 Conference selection this spring as a sophomore first baseman at the University of Arizona.
While he hasnâ€™t signed a contract with the Mets, Frenzel said via text message Friday that he did a physical with the team so that, if he does sign, he will be able to play immediately.
Frenzel posted a picture of himself in the Mets’ locker room with David Wright, the teamâ€™s all-star third baseman, on his Facebook page Friday morning.
Frenzel told The Dickinson Press last week the Mets have indicated that if he signs, he would likely be sent to their short-season Class A club, the Brooklyn Cyclones.
