Mets' Michael Conforto tallies three RBI in win Saturday
|by Brandon Wise | CBSSports.com|
|(3/7/15) Mets prospect Michael Conforto looked the part Saturday. The 22-year-old outfielder went 3 for 4 with three RBI in New York's 3-1 win over the Braves.
"I felt very comfortable. My goal was to just come over here and have fun and embrace the moment," Conforto said. "The opportunity to be out here with these guys was pretty cool. I had a lot of fun today. Being out on the field with a guy like David Wright and sitting in the dugout with all those guys is pretty cool and a great experience, and to go out there and compete at a high level is a really special thing."
Manager Terry Collins loved what he saw from one of the clubs top prospects.
"The guy's a No. 1 draft pick. A lot of people thought he was the best hitter in the country last year in college," Collins said. "He's got a short swing, he's got a quick bat through the strike zone. It's the first time I've seen him. But, for sure, he's got one of those really nice swings. It's good for him to get over here. There's a chance we'll try to get him back over here when we need some outfielders. We've got some nice players coming. We want to give them some looks, so we know what's coming up the pike."
