Mets, Kumar Rocker have understanding in place for contract

The Mets and No. 1 pick Kumar Rocker already have an understanding in place for a contract, sources told The Post.

The Mets selected the hard-throwing righty from Vanderbilt on Sunday night when he surprisingly fell to them with the 10th overall pick. A source had told The Post’s Zach Braziller that there had been whispers of high financial demands. The slot value for the 10th pick is $4.74 million.

Rocker — whose agreement with the Mets would be pending a physical — had initially been drafted out of high school by the Rockies in the 2018 38th round but opted to attend college. The Rockies then had the 8th overall pick on Sunday, but Rocker being re-selected by Colorado wasn’t an option. MLB rules state that a player must sign a consent form to be re-drafted by the same organization — Rocker declined to do so, and two picks later, he was available for the Mets.

“It was about a war to get him down [to 10th] because we felt the Mets were a good pick for him and a good environment,” Scott Boras, Rocker’s agent, told The Post.

Asked if a deal was done, Boras replied, “The Mets have a strong flavor for him.”

Boras added: “There is an understanding among the participants about what he expects (financially) and what they (the Mets) expect.”
