  • Mets' Brett Baty: Gets Sunday off

    Baty is out of the lineup for Sunday's game against the Rockies.

  • Mets' Brett Baty: Could see time in left

    Baty could shift to left field on occasion as the Mets try to find ways to get Mark Vientos into the lineup, Will Sammon and Tim Britton of The Athletic report.

    Vientos' hot bat at Triple-A prompted a promotion, but after homering in his big-league debut Wednesday, the 23-year-old was on the bench Thursday. He's blocked defensively at the infield corners and Pete Alonso isn't budging off first base, which leaves Vientos batting for at-bats at DH unless Baty can be moved elsewhere. Baty has seen sporadic action in left over the last few years in the minors, and given that he's a better athlete than Vientos, he appears more capable of handling the shift. There's also the question of whether the 23-year-old Baty has even earned an everyday spot yet -- through 26 games in the majors this season, Baty is slashing just .241/.323/.386 with three homers.

  • Mets' Brett Baty: Absent from lineup

    Baty is out of the lineup for Wednesday's game versus the Rays.

    Mark Vientos -- who was recalled from Triple-A Syracuse earlier Wednesday -- will play third base against lefty Josh Fleming. With Vientos and Eduardo Escobar around as options at the hot corner, Baty might be benched regularly versus southpaws for the time being.

  • Mets' Brett Baty: Goes deep in loss

    Baty went 1-for-3 with a solo home run and a walk in Tuesday's loss to the Rays.

    Baty got the Mets on the board in the fifth with a solo blast to right center field for his first home run since May 1. Baty has cooled down considerably, slashing just .139/.262/.250 over his last 11 games, though he does own a 5:5 BB:K. The 23-year-old continues to ride the bench a majority of the time against lefties, but that could change at any moment if he starts to heat up again at the plate.

  • Mets' Brett Baty: Sitting versus lefty

    Baty is out of the lineup for Monday's game versus the Nationals.

    Baty has now been on the bench three of the last four times the Mets have faced a left-hander, with his absence from the lineup Monday coming with southpaw Patrick Corbin taking the hill for Washington. Eduardo Escobar will play the hot corner Monday in Baty's stead.

  • Mets' Brett Baty: Held out versus lefty

    Baty is absent from the Mets' lineup for Friday's game against the Nationals, Tim Healey of Newsday reports.

    Left-hander MacKenzie Gore actually has drastic reverse splits this season, with lefties producing a 1.258 OPS against him and righties a .584 OPS. He did fare better versus left-handed hitters in 2022, though, and the left-handed batting Baty will be on the bench in favor of Eduardo Escobar for this one.

  • Mets' Brett Baty: Sitting against lefty

    Baty is not in the lineup Thursday against the Tigers.

    Eduardo Escobar will play third base and bat eighth with left-hander Eduardo Rodriguez on the mound for Detroit. Baty has seen more action against lefties over the last week or so, but he'll grab a bit of rest as the Mets wrap up this three-game set at Comerica Park.
