The Player: Domingo Tapia (RHP, New York Mets) – Tapia didn’t sign with the Mets until he was 17-years old in 2009 and didn’t debut until 2010. He started three games in the DSL before coming stateside and starting ten games in the GCL. Across 58.2 innings at both levels that year he posted a combined 3.38 ERA with 15 walks and 34 strikeouts. In the Appy League in 2011, Tapia showed big arm strength en route to a 3.78 ERA in 11 starters, followed by one dominating outing in the New York-Penn League at the end of the season. The Mets pushed him to Low-A in 2012 and he rewarded their faith with a 3.98 ERA and nearly a strikeout per inning in 108.2 innings.
