Top Brett Baty News

  • Mets' Brett Baty: Likely to start season in minors

    Baty (thumb) is likely to begin the season at Triple-A Syracuse, Deesha Thosar of reports.

    The Mets' third-base job opened back up when their deal with Carlos Correa fell through, but they're expected to turn back to Eduardo Escobar rather than hand the hot corner over to Baty. Escobar is slated to play for Venezuela in the World Baseball Classic, so Baty will have plenty of opportunities in camp to change the Mets' minds. The top prospect mostly struggled when pressed into duty with the big club last season, but Baty is likely the future at third base. Ideally, the Mets would probably like him to seize the job against righties at some point in 2023.

  • Mets' Brett Baty: Suffers torn UCL in thumb

    Baty will undergo surgery to repair a torn UCL in his right thumb Thursday and was placed on the 10-day injured list, retroactive to Aug. 29.

    The 22-year-old sat out the past couple days after suffering the injury against the Rockies over the weekend, and he may now be sidelined for the rest of the regular season. A standard recovery timeline for this type of procedure is about five weeks, so if all goes well in his recovery, Baty could be ready for game action early in the playoffs.

  • Mets' Brett Baty: Not starting Wednesday

    Baty (thumb) isn't in the lineup Wednesday against the Dodgers.

    Baty was unavailable for Tuesday's 4-3 loss due to a right thumb injury, and he'll remain out of the lineup a day later. According to Tim Britton of The Athletic, Baty received some imaging for his thumb, and while the Mets are satisfied enough with his ability to play defense or pinch run, it's yet clear if he can comfortably swing a bat. Eduardo Escobar will start at the hot corner and bat eighth in Baty's stead Wednesday.

  • Mets' Brett Baty: Managing thumb issue

    Baty was unavailable during Tuesday's loss to the Dodgers due to a thumb injury, Anthony DiComo of reports.

    The 22-year-old suffered the injury over the weekend against the Rockies and was held out of the lineup Tuesday, and he apparently wasn't available as a pinch hitter. Baty should be considered day-to-day heading into Wednesday's matchup with Los Angeles.

  • Mets' Brett Baty: Takes seat versus lefty

    Baty is out of the lineup for Tuesday's game against the Dodgers.

    Baty has cobbled together a four-game hitting streak to bring his average (.184) closer to the Mendoza Line, but the lefty-hitting rookie could still find himself on the bench regularly against left-handers like the Dodgers' Andrew Heaney until he first proves he can master right-handed pitching. The switch-hitting Eduardo Escobar will spell Baty at third base.

  • Mets' Brett Baty: Not starting Saturday

    Baty will hit the bench Saturday against the Rockies.

    Eduardo Escobar returned from an oblique injury Saturday and will start at third base, but Baty hasn't been sent down to clear space, so he's presumably still part of the picture at the hot corner. He could lose at-bats going forward, however, as he's hit just .171/.237/.343 in his first 10 major-league games.

  • Mets' Brett Baty: Homers in first MLB at-bat

    Baty went 1-for-4 with a solo home run and an additional RBI in Wednesday's 9-7 victory over Atlanta.

    Baty took Jake Odorizzi deep in his first career at-bat. Baty only played six games at Triple-A Syracuse, but he mashed at the Double-A level to the tune of a .312/.406/.544 slash line, and Wednesday's homer gives some early validation to the team's decision to promote him. It was also a plus that Baty didn't go down on strikes in his debut, considering he'd mustered a 25.0 percent strikeout rate in Double-A Binghamton.

  • Mets' Brett Baty: Batting eighth in MLB debut

    The Mets selected Baty's contract from Triple-A Syracuse on Wednesday. He'll start at third base and bat eighth in his MLB debut Wednesday in Atlanta, Anthony DiComo of reports.

    Expect the 22-year-old to get an extended look as the Mets' everyday third baseman while both Luis Guillorme (groin) and Eduardo Escobar (oblique) are on the shelf. The lefty-hitting Baty has only six games of experience above the Double-A level, but he shined across stops at the Mets' top two minor-league affiliates this season, slashing a collective .315/.410/.533 with a 24.8 percent strikeout rate and 11.6 percent walk rate. Baty could be an appealing speculative pickup in deeper mixed leagues for managers looking for an infusion of power from a corner-infield spot.
