6/4/18 - Selected in the first round, No. 6 overall by the New York Mets in the 2018 MLB Draft.
2/4/18 - Louisville recruit. Currently ranked No. 2 overall in the PBR Draft 100 list, and after delivering one of the single best performances in 16 years of the Super 60, it's easy to see why he's widely considered a high first-round draft prospect. ... 6-foot-1, 190-pound left-handed hitting outfielder, advanced strength, rock-solid muscle throughout; overall explosive and polished quick-twitch athlete. True five-tool prospect. ... As the only junior at the Super 60 last year, Kelenic was unequivocally the top prospect in attendance, and he easily surpassed his expectations this year. Kicked off his day by running a 6.55 laser-timed 60, second fastest at the event. Defensively, he consistently fired mid-90 mph strikes to the catcher, topping at 96. Moves with confidence, natural outfield actions, fields the ball with rhythm while gradually gaining speed; ball explodes out of the hand. ... Offensively, he's remarkably balanced, quiet, consistent and, above all, explosive. FlightScope data illustrates exactly how consistent Kelenic was during his two BP rounds. He did not register an exit velocity below 93 mph, with a high of 104.39, and an average of 99.08. Nine of his 12 hits went over 325 feet, with an average of 310 and a best blow of 380.15. His launch angles were remarkably consistent, too, with an average of 20.1 degrees. No hitter at the Super 60 delivered as consistent FlightScope results as Kelenic, further highlighting his offensive polish.
