The New York Mets drafted Jarred Kelenic (7/16/1999) in the 1st round of the 2018 MLB June Amateur Draft out of Waukesha West high school (Waukesha, WI). The Mets traded Kelenic to the Seattle Mariners for Robinson Cano and closer Edwin Diaz.
He is currently rated as the top prospect in the MLB and is projected to be called up sometime in 2021.
Pro-Tip: Don’t buy raw cards on eBay to receive a high grade (unless it’s a Bowman Chrome baseball card as those hold up exceptionally well).
He can drive the ball to all fields and has immense raw power that should result in multiple 30+ home run seasons in the big leagues once he matures. Let’s check out the top-rated Jarred Kelenic RCs for investment purposes.
