Top 10 MLB Organizations At Identifying Undrafted Free Agents

4. Mets

The Mets are the only other team with the Pirates and Phillies to sign five future All-Stars as NDFA’s: Kevin Mitchell, Jeff Reardon, Heath Bell, Heathcliff Slocumb and Jim Bibby. The five combined for 11 all-star appearances, and Mitchell is the only NDFA to win an MVP award. The Mets also found NDFA successes in 15-year big league reliever Greg Harris and popular former utilityman T.J Rivera.

Local St. Louis product Bernard Gilkey was the Cardinals’ most recent impact NDFA signing. He played 12 seasons as a dangerous outfielder on both sides of the ball.

Was his fielding really that bad? It doesn't show in dWAR
