Mets Pitching Prospect: P.J. Conlon (2017)

P.J. Conlon was born Patrick Joshua Conlon on November 11th 1993 in Belfast, United Kingdom. The five foot eleven left handed pitcher attended the University of San Diego getting drafted by the New York Mets in the 2015 June Amateur draft in the 13th round.

In his first season he pitched out of the bullpen for the Brooklyn Cyclones & did not allow an earned run in 17 innings pitched. He became a starter for the A ball Columbia Fireflies & went an impressive 8-1 with a 1.84 ERA.

He was promoted to St. Lucie where he was 4-1, as he kept the runs down, sporting a 1.41 ERA in 63.2 innings. Under pressure he held opponents to just a .152 average with runners in scoring position.

He was invited to the Mets Spring Training camp in 2017 & will get the opportunity to compete for a bullpen spot. His best pitch his is his change up with a fastball only hitting the low 90's on good days.
