Last night, the New York Mets made a surprising move by calling up Akeel Morris from the St. Lucie Mets.

Morris was drafted by the New York Mets in the 10th round of the 2010 MLB June Amateur Draft from Charlotte Amalie HS in St. Thomas, VI.

Morris spent the 2010 season with the GCL Mets, before spending 2011 & 2012 in Kingsport.

Morris played for the Cyclones in 2013, posting a 4-1 record in 14 games, 3 of the starts. He also closed out 7 games, earning 1 save while posting an ERA of 1.00 with 60 strike outs over 45 innings pitched.

Morris spent the 2014 season in Savannah before starting the 2015 season with the St. Lucie Mets.

Morris will be the 52nd member of the Brooklyn Cyclones to play in the Major Leagues. He will be the 35th to make his debut with the Mets and 36th to play for both the Mets and the Cyclones. He will be the 1st member of the 2013 Cyclones to make the Majors.
