Kumar Rocker, the former Vanderbilt ace, who failed to sign with the New York Mets after last year’s MLB Draft, has signed with an independent league team.

Joel Sherman of the New York Post reported that Rocker signed with the Frontier League Tri-City Valleycats. After Rocker was drafted by the Mets No. 10 overall last summer, he did not sign with the franchise because of reported concerns about his medical scans, which have not been released publicly.

Rocker at Vanderbilt received almost every accolade in college baseball, including first-team All-SEC and All-American, Golden Spikes Award and Dick Howser Trophy finalist and College World Series Most Outstanding Player.

His representative, Scott Boras, responded to the medical concerns.

“Kumar Rocker is healthy according to independent medical review by multiple prominent baseball orthopedic surgeons,” Boras said, per the Associated Press. “Immediately upon conclusion of his collegiate season, he had an MRI on both his shoulder and his elbow. When compared with his 2018 MRIs, the medical experts found no significant change. Kumar requires no medical attention and will continue to pitch in the regular course as he prepares to begin his professional career.”

The terms of Rocker’s deal with the Valley Cats and when he will pitch for them are unclear, however, it is believed he will use the team to showcase for scouts ahead of the upcoming MLB Draft, for which he remains eligible, the Tennessean reported.
