Dunedin shortstop Casey Turgeon was selected in the 22nd round (672nd overall) by the Mets on Tuesday.

Turgeon, who has signed with Florida, was an all-county and all-conference selection the past four years. This season he hit .400 with four home runs and drew 40 walks. He owns the school record for hits, walks and runs in his career.

If he opts to sign with the Mets, Turgeon would join his brother, Erik,  in the same organization. Erik Turgeon was the Mets 25th round selection in 2008 and currently pitches for the club's Double-A affiliate in Binghamton.
