Because they drafted him? Hey kid, nice that you want to start your career, but you actually have to wait until next year because your potential employer won’t hire you and other employers aren’t allowed to. If other teams were scared off, then the Mets knew what they were getting into and drafted him anyway. They’re the same joke they were under the Wilpons.
But they didnt know because Rocker didnt participate in the pre-draft medical exchange. The other teams passed on him due to the drop off in velo. Mets didnt and are passing after discovering why he had a drop off in velo.

The Wilpons would have signed him anyway, let him wait two years to have TJS, then he would have got it and been out a year and change, and then have to add him to the 40 man roster while he was still getting innings in High A ball.
