Mets select Stuart out of Brevard College

A native of the Bahamas, Champ Stuart played three sports at Christ School in Asheville, N.C., before heading to Brevard (N.C.) College. Brevard is a Division II school and off the beaten path for scouts, but they took notice of Stuart.

Stuart is a special athlete who is still learning the game and has exciting raw tools. His swing is a work in progress, but he generates good bat speed. His tools profile best as a top-of-the-order hitter, where his speed can play up.

Stuart has a solid arm and can play right field or center field, though he must improve his reads.
