SAN FRANCISCO -- Selections resumed Friday in the three-day MLB draft. Here is the final rundown of the day's activity. Rounds 11 through 40 will be selected Saturday. The Mets took Oregon State outfielder Michael Conforto in the first round and did not have a second-round pick.
Rd. 3 (84th overall), Milton Ramos, SS, American Heritage (Fla.) HS.
Rd. 4 (115), Eudor Garcia, 3B, El Paso (Texas) CC.
BA's Jim Callis says: "Love Eudor Garcia to Mets. One of the best hitters in the draft. Where he plays defensively, we'll see. But that dude rakes."

Rd. 5 (145), Josh Prevost, RHP, Seton Hall
BA's Jim Callis says: "Also a fan of Mets senior pickup in 5th round, RHP Josh Prevost. Actually thought he'd go out higher. Up to 94 w/heavy sink."
