Mets Add Promising Prospects to 40-Man Roster
Andrew "Drew" Horun is a senior at New Jersey's Phillipsburg High School, where he is a National Honor Society inductee and member of its wrestling team. In addition to his passion for wrestling, Andrew Horun is an avid baseball fan who counts the New York Mets as his favorite Major League Baseball (MLB) team.

The Mets had a disappointing season in 2017 as the team finished with its lowest win total (70) since 2009 and missed the playoffs for the first time in three years. However, the team is already busy preparing for the future and, in doing so, added four promising prospects to its 40-man roster on November 20. In protecting the players, the Mets ensured no other team could select them in the upcoming Rule 5 Draft.

Luis Guillorme was the only position player added to the 40-man roster. The 23-year-old infielder was selected by the Mets in the 10th round of the 2013 MLB Amateur Draft. He had a promising 2017 campaign with New York's AA minor league affiliate in Binghamton with a .283 batting average and 43 runs batted in through 128 games, which earned him the organization's Double-A Player of the Year award. The team also protected pitchers Tyler Bashlor, Corey Oswalt, and Gerson Bautista.
