Player Outlook
Mark Vientos earned a promotion to the big club in mid-May following a monster start to the season at Triple-A Syracuse. He struggled to replicate the success with the Mets, as he banged out nine home runs over 233 plate appearances but also posted a .620 OPS while striking out at a 30.5 percent clip. Vientos has fanned at a 27 percent rate during his time at Double- and Triple-A, so we probably can't count on much of an improvement with his strikeout rate in 2024. He did also draw walks at a 10.1 percent rate during those stops in the minors, so the 4.3 percent rate he had with the Mets could tick up. Ultimately, Vientos is likely to go as far as his power will take him, and he did collect a robust 51 percent hard-hit rate and 10.7 percent barrel rate. The 24-year-old could only have designated hitter eligibility initially in your fantasy league, and that spot might be his clearest path to playing time with the Mets.

  • Mets' Mark Vientos: Two hits in return to majors

    Vientos went 2-for-4 with a double, a run scored and an RBI in Wednesday's loss to the Phillies. Called back up form Triple-A Syracuse earlier in the day, Vientos got the start at third base against lefty Ranger Suarez and made an immediate impact, driving home Francisco Lindor with a first-inning double. Vientos' time in the majors could last a little longer this time after he was up for about a week in late April, but the 24-year-old could still see limited action and is expected to serve mainly as a short-side platoon option at the hot corner behind Brett Baty. Through 31 games at Triple-A this year, Vientos is slashing .284/.376/.500 with six homers and 30 RBI.

  • Mets' Mark Vientos: Summoned from Triple-A

    The Mets recalled Vientos from Triple-A Syracuse on Wednesday. He'll assume the 26-man active roster spot of infielder Joey Wendle, who was designated for assignment in a corresponding move. Vientos will likely be limited to a short-side platoon role at third base behind the lefty-hitting Brett Baty while he's up with the big club.

  • Mets' Mark Vientos: Promotion imminent

    The Mets will recall Vientos from Triple-A Syracuse on Wednesday, Anthony DiComo of MLB.com reports. Vientos has slashed .233/.343/.400 across 35 plate appearances since being sent down to Triple-A on April 30, and he will now return to New York -- presumably forming a platoon at third base with Brett Baty. Vientos went 3-for-7 with a two-run homer during his first stint in the majors.

  • Mets' Mark Vientos: Heads back to minors

    The Mets optioned Vientos to Triple-A Syracuse on Tuesday, Mike Puma of the New York Post reports. Vientos contributed a walk-off home run in Sunday's extra-innings win over the Cardinals but now finds himself back in the minors as Starling Marte returns to the active roster. With J.D. Martinez with the club and Brett Baty absorbing most of the at-bats at third base, there's no path to regular playing time for Vientos right now.

  • Mets' Mark Vientos: Launches walk-off homer

    Vientos went 2-for-2 with a two-run home run during Sunday's 4-2 extra-innings win over the Cardinals. Vientos entered the contest as a pinch hitter in the bottom of the ninth, notching a single. He came back to the plate in the 11th, when he plated Harrison Bader on a game-winning two-run home run. While Vientos was called up to fill the hole left by Starling Marte's (personal) absence, he could earn a permanent big-league spot if he continues to rake.

  • Mets' Mark Vientos: Up from Triple-A

    The Mets recalled Vientos from Triple-A Syracuse on Saturday, Will Sammon of The Athletic reports. Vientos has slashed .302/.388/.525 across 98 plate appearances in Triple-A, and he'll now join the big-league club as Starling Marte (personal) steps away from the team. Vientos will likely head back to Syracuse following Marte's return.

  • Mets' Mark Vientos: Swats first homer of spring

    Vientos went 1-for-2 with a walk and a solo home run in Friday's Grapefruit League game against the Cardinals. Starting at third base and batting fifth, the 24-year-old took Matthew Liberatore deep in the second inning for his first long ball of the spring. The Mets are looking for Vientos to take a step forward this season after he stumbled to a .211/.253/.367 slash line over 233 plate appearances in 2023 with a 30.5 percent strikeout rate, but it's not yet clear if he'll have a consistent spot in the lineup or split his time between third base and DH while also occasionally spelling Pete Alonso at first base.

  • Mets' Mark Vientos: Out Sunday with sore foot

    Vientos (foot) is out of the lineup for Sunday's game against the Mariners. Vientos will take a seat for the series finale after he went 2-for-3 with a solo home run and a walk before exiting Saturday's 8-7 loss with a sore right foot. The Mets will have Labor Day off, so Vientos will get two days to move past the foot injury before the team opens its two-game set in Washington on Tuesday.

  • Mets' Mark Vientos: Comes off injured list

    The Mets activated Vientos (wrist) from the 10-day injured list Sunday. He'll start at third base and bat eighth in the Mets' series finale with the Angels. Vientos will be back in action Sunday after missing exactly 10 days due to left wrist tendinitis. The 24-year-old has posted a disappointing .195/.230/.288 batting line across 126 major-league plate appearances this season, but he should play regularly down the stretch as the Mets look ahead to 2024 and beyond.

  • Mets' Mark Vientos: Expected back Sunday

    Vientos (wrist) is expected to be activated from the 10-day injured list Sunday, Anthony DiComo of MLB.com reports. Vientos played in a rehab game with Triple-A Syracuse on Friday, and it's apparently the only one he will need. The rookie infielder has been out since mid-August with left wrist tendinitis. He had been seeing regular action at third base before the injury and should return to playing almost every day.

  • Mets' Mark Vientos: Begins rehab assignment

    Vientos (wrist) began a rehab assignment with Triple-A Syracuse on Friday, MLB.com reports. Vientos doubled, drew a walk and scored a pair of runs while playing 10 innings at third base in his first rehab game. He is eligible for activation Saturday and it sounds like his return to the Mets is imminent. Vientos has been out since mid-August with left wrist tendinitis.

  • Mets' Mark Vientos: Goes on IL with sore wrist

    Vientos was placed on the 10-day injured list Thursday, retroactive to Aug. 16, with left wrist tendinitis, Mike Puma of the New York Post reports. Imaging scans taken Wednesday showed no structural damage, but Vientos will rest his wrist until at least late next week. Jonathan Arauz and Danny Mendick will likely share time at third base in his absence. Arauz is getting the start there in the Mets' series opener Thursday against the Cardinals.

  • Mets' Mark Vientos: Out again with sore wrist

    Vientos (wrist) remains out of the lineup for Thursday's series opener at St. Louis. Vientos missed Wednesday's series finale against the Pirates due to left wrist discomfort, but an MRI showed only inflammation and it seems like he'll be able to avoid the injured list. Jonathan Arauz is covering third base for the Mets on Thursday against the Cardinals. Daniel Vogelbach will fill the DH role.

  • Mets' Mark Vientos: Steps out of starting nine

    Vientos is out of the lineup for Wednesday's game against the Pirates. Jonathan Arauz will get the nod at third base for the series finale while Vientos gets a breather following a stretch of 10 consecutive starts. Though Vientos has taken hold of an everyday role in the aftermath of the Aug. 1 trade deadline, he's provided little value for fantasy managers. On the month, Vientos is hitting just .154 with no home runs, two RBI, one run and no stolen bases in 14 games.

  • Mets' Mark Vientos: Clear runway at third base

    Vientos is expected to serve as the Mets' everyday third baseman after Brett Baty was optioned to Triple-A Syracuse on Monday, Anthony DiComo of MLB.com reports. Though he's serving as the Mets' designated hitter and No. 5 batter Monday against Cubs southpaw Drew Smyly, Vientos looks poised to see the bulk of the starts at third base versus right-handed pitching while Daniel Vogelbach handles DH duties for those matchups. Known more for his prowess with the bat while he was coming up the Mets' farm system, Vientos may not have the defensive chops to stick at third base in the long term, but the non-contending Mets will at least use the next few weeks as a test run to see if he can hold his own at the position.

  • Mets' Mark Vientos: Finding groove at plate

    Vientos went 2-for-4 with a double, a home run and two RBI in Saturday's 11-6 loss to the Nationals. The rookie took Andres Machado deep in the ninth inning for a solo shot after ripping an RBI double in the second. Vientos has started five of the last seven games -- three at DH and two at third base -- and he figures to keep a near-everyday role after Tuesday's trade deadline, especially if the Mets ship out players like Tommy Pham and Mark Canha. Vientos is earning that playing time, hitting .333 (7-for-21) since his most recent promotion with two doubles and a homer, but his 1:7 BB:K over that seven-game stretch suggests his batting average will fade even if his power is legit.

  • Mets' Mark Vientos: Playing time opening up

    Vientos went 0-for-5 with three strikeouts in Thursday's 13-10 extra-inning loss to Atlanta. Getting the start at first base and batting ninth, Vientos' rookie struggles continued, and he's now batting .162 (6-for-37) through his first 13 big-league games this season with a 30.8 percent strikeout rate. Pete Alonso (wrist) was placed on the injured list Friday, however, potentially pushing Vientos into a near-everyday role. The 23-year-old was slashing .333/.416/.688 at Triple-A Syracuse prior to his promotion, and while he won't replace Alonso's elite power, Vientos could begin to find some success at the plate with more consistent playing time.

  • Mets' Mark Vientos: Absent from lineup

    Vientos is not in the lineup for Wednesday's game against the Cubs, Mike Puma of the New York Post reports. Vientos has now started four games and been on the bench three times since his promotion a week ago. All three times he's been out of the lineup have been against righties, and Daniel Vogelbach has been the designated hitter in each case as he will be Wednesday.

  • Mets' Mark Vientos: On bench for matinee

    Vientos is out of the lineup for Game 1 of Sunday's doubleheader against the Guardians. Vientos is 2-for-8 with a home run, a walk and three RBI in two games since being promoted Wednesday, and he'll step out of the lineup for Game 1 of Sunday's twin bill. Daniel Vogelbach will serve as the designated hitter versus Cleveland righty Tanner Bibee.

  • Mets' Mark Vientos: Not in lineup Thursday

    Vientos is not in the lineup Thursday versus the Rays. Vientos slugged a two-run homer Wednesday in his season debut with the Mets, building on his blistering start to the year at Triple-A Syracuse, but he'll head to the bench for Thursday's series finale at Citi Field. Daniel Vogelbach will serve as New York's designated hitter.
