Player Outlook
The 23-year old Brett Baty had a tale of two seasons in that he absolutely raked in Triple-A Syracuse but struggled at the big league level. Baty had a .298/.388/.625 line in 121 plate appearances with Syracuse to force his way to the big league roster, but finished the season in Queens with a .212/.275/.323 line as other rookies around the league flourished. Baty handles fastballs well last season with a .283 xBA and six of his nine homers coming off the pitch, but a .151 xBA against breaking balls and a .239 xBA against offspeed pitches did him in as he saw those pitches 44% of the time from opposing pitchers. Facing lefties was mostly a mystery for him as he hit .176 with 29 strikeouts in 91 at bats while doing what damage he did against righties. Baty has the upside to be a better fantasy contributor than what he has shown thus far, but he will have to show that before he gets moved to the top half of the lineup. He is currently a liability at a position demanding production.

  • Mets' Brett Baty: Could get work at second base

    Baty might see action at second base with Triple-A Syracuse, Will Sammon of The Athletic reports. The Mets have struggled to get production from the keystone all season, with Jeff McNeil slumping to a career-worst .624 OPS. Jose Iglesias has filled in admirably against left-handed pitching of late, but the 34-year-old isn't a long-term solution. Baty could get a chance to fill that hole later in the year, especially if McNeil gets traded, but first he'll need to get himself straightened out at the plate -- Baty lost the starting job at third base due to a .229/.306/.327 slash line through 50 big-league games.

  • Mets' Brett Baty: Back at Triple-A

    The Mets returned Baty to Triple-A Syracuse on Monday. As expected, Baty will link back up with the Triple-A club after he joined the Mets this past weekend in London to serve as their 27th man for the two-game series versus the Phillies. He started at third base in Sunday's 6-5 win, going 1-for-2.

  • Mets' Brett Baty: Up as 27th man

    The Mets recalled Baty from Triple-A Syracuse on Saturday. Baty will likely serve as a backup during New York's two-game series against the Phillies in London. He figures to head back to Triple-A once the Mets return to the States, where he'll begin taking reps at second base for the first time in his career.

  • Mets' Brett Baty: Will serve as 27th man

    Baty will be recalled from Triple-A Syracuse to serve as the 27th man during this weekend's series in London versus the Phillies, Mike Puma of the New York Post reports. Baty was optioned to Syracuse a week ago following a slow start but has gone 3-for-10 with two home runs in his first two games back in the minors. He will likely operate in a reserve role for the two games in London before being sent back down early next week. Baty also revealed that the plan is for him to get some game reps at second base when he goes back to Syracuse, per Puma.

  • Mets' Brett Baty: Demoted to Triple-A

    The Mets optioned Baty to Triple-A Syracuse on Friday, Jeff Passan of ESPN.com reports. Baty is slashing just .225/.304/.325 this season and has struck out at 34.7 percent clip in May. With the emergence of Mark Vientos (.295/.354/.591), the Mets have elected to send Baty back to the minors in hopes of getting his swing right. Vientos will take over as the club's everyday third baseman.

  • Mets' Brett Baty: Heading to bench Wednesday

    Baty is out of the lineup for Wednesday's game against the Dodgers. Baty was in the lineup for three of the last four games with the Mets facing four right-handed starting pitchers, but he'll give way to the righty-hitting Mark Vientos on Wednesday while southpaw James Paxton takes the hill for the Dodgers. Vientos should continue to regularly replace the lefty-hitting Baty when the Mets face lefties, but the distribution of starts at third base between the two against right-handed pitching still looks to be up in the air. Baty has helped his cause by getting on base five times in 12 plate appearances over his last three starts, but Vientos owns a 1.085 OPS since his May 15 call-up from Triple-A Syracuse to keep himself in the mix for starts against righties.

  • Mets' Brett Baty: Goes yard in Saturday's loss

    Baty went 1-for-3 with a walk and a solo home run in Saturday's 7-2 extra-inning loss to the Giants. Getting the start at third base and batting eighth, Baty put the Mets ahead 2-1 by taking Sean Hjelle deep in the seventh inning, but Edwin Diaz and the bullpen melted down once again. Baty snapped a 14-game homer drought with the blast, a stretch in which he's stumbled to a .122/.182/.146 slash line with a 42.2 percent strikeout rate while seeing Mark Vientos move past him on the depth chart at third base. While Baty's long ball was encouraging, he also struck out twice more Saturday. Until he solves his contact issues, he'll have a hard time reclaiming the starting job at the hot corner.

  • Mets' Brett Baty: Sitting against right-hander again

    Baty is out of the lineup for Wednesday's game against the Guardians, Tim Healey of Newsday reports. The lefty-hitting Baty is on the bench against a right-handed starting pitcher (Triston McKenzie), likely signaling that he's at least temporarily lost hold of his role as the Mets' preferred third baseman. Though he's drawn positive reviews for his work defensively this season, Baty has failed to take a notable step forward at the plate, as he's posted a .611 OPS through 150 plate appearances. Baty has performed especially poorly over the past three weeks, going just 5-for-40 with 19 strikeouts against three walks across a stretch of 13 games. Mark Vientos looks like he'll get an extended look at the hot corner as the Mets look to bolster their slumping offense.

  • Mets' Brett Baty: Not starting versus lefty

    Baty isn't in the Mets' lineup Saturday versus the Marlins. With left-hander Braxton Garrett set to take the mound for Miami, the lefty-hitting Baty will step out of the lineup in favor of Mark Vientos, who will start at third and bat fifth.

  • Mets' Brett Baty: Sitting against lefty

    Baty is out of the lineup for Wednesday's game against the Phillies. With a tough lefty (Ranger Suarez) on the hill for Philadelphia, the lefty-hitting Baty will retreat to the bench. The freshly recalled Mark Vientos will get the start at third base and could end up filling the short side of a platoon with Baty while he's up with the big club.

  • Mets' Brett Baty: Goes yard twice in loss

    Baty went 3-for-4 with two home runs and four RBI in Friday's 10-8 loss to the Rays. The young third baseman took Aaron Civale deep for a three-run blast in the second inning to open the scoring, and he then connected for a solo shot off Jason Adam in the ninth. It was the first multi-homer performance of Baty's big-league career, and it snapped a 27-game drought for the 24-year-old -- his only other long ball in 2024 came back on March 30. Despite the power outage, Baty has taken a big step forward in his development this year, and through 30 contests he's slashing .271/.340/.385, a massive improvement on last season's .212/.275/.323 line.

  • Mets' Brett Baty: On bench versus righty

    Baty is out of the lineup for Monday's game versus the Cubs, Tim Healey of Newsday reports. The Cubs have right-hander Jameson Taillon on the mound, but the Mets are rewarding the right-handed-hitting Mark Vientos with a start at third base after he hit a walk-off home run in Sunday's 11-inning win over the Cardinals. Baty is just 3-for-25 at the plate over his last nine games.

  • Mets' Brett Baty: Not starting Friday

    Baty (hamstring) is not in the starting lineup for Friday's game against the Dodgers. Baty missed Wednesday's game against the Pirates after experiencing tightness in his left hamstring Tuesday. He did some running and agility tests ahead of Friday's game, but he has not provided a timeline on his return, per Pat Ragazzo of SI.com. Baty has started the season slashing .305/.359/.373 with one home run and nine RBI over 64 plate appearances.

  • Mets' Brett Baty: Not expected to need IL stint

    Baty (hamstring) said Wednesday that he's optimistic that he'll avoid the 10-day injured list, Anthony DiComo of MLB.com reports. Baty experienced left hamstring tightness during Tuesday's 3-1 win over the Pirates and is out of the lineup for Wednesday's series finale. However, he's feeling much better a day later and won't be sent in for imaging, leaving him confident that he'll be ready to play in a few days. The Mets have an off day Thursday, providing the young third baseman an extra day of rest before he perhaps returns to action this weekend against the Dodgers.

  • Mets' Brett Baty: Gets Sunday off

    Baty is out of the lineup for Sunday's game against the Royals. With a tough lefty (Cole Ragans) on the bump for Kansas City, the lefty-hitting Baty will give way to Zack Short at third base. Baty will rest for the first time since March 30 after he saw his seven-game hit streak come to an end with an 0-for-4 showing in Saturday's 11-7 loss.

  • Mets' Brett Baty: Hit streak at seven games

    Baty went 2-for-4 with a double, a run scored and two RBI in Friday's win over the Royals. The 24-year-old third baseman has started to get a read on big-league pitching. Baty has hit safely in seven straight games and 11 of 13 to begin the season, slashing .327/.365/.408 with a homer, five runs and eight RBI. The power he flashed in the minors isn't showing up consistently yet, but it's likely only a matter of time until it does -- he slugged 10 homers in only 26 games last year at Triple-A.

  • Mets' Brett Baty: Three hits in Monday's win

    Baty went 3-for-5 with a run scored in Monday's win over Atlanta. All three knocks were singles, but it was still another impressive effort from the 24-year-old third baseman. After struggling during his first extended stint in the majors last year, Baty's come out like gangbusters to begin 2024, batting .333 (12-for-36) through 10 games with a homer, four runs, five RBI and a 3:8 BB:K.

  • Mets' Brett Baty: On base four times in twin bill

    Baty went 1-for-6 with three walks, a run scored and an RBI across both games of Thursday's doubleheader split with the Tigers. The 24-year-old third baseman reached base three times in the matinee before drawing another free pass in the nightcap. The walks were the first of the season for Baty, who's batting .222 (4-for-18) through six games with a homer, two runs and four RBI as he looks to establish himself at the hot corner for the Mets.

  • Mets' Brett Baty: Sitting versus southpaw

    Baty isn't in the Mets' lineup Saturday against Milwaukee. Baty was held hitless in three at-bats during Friday's season opener, and he'll sit down Saturday with left-hander DL Hall on the mound for the Brewers. Zack Short will start at the hot corner and bat eighth.

  • Mets' Brett Baty: Could platoon after Martinez deal

    Baty may open the season in a reduced role after the Mets agreed to a contract with J.D. Martinez on Thursday, which was reported by Jon Heyman of the New York Post. Baty and Mark Vientos were expected to begin the season as the Mets' primary options at third base and designated hitter. but Martinez will now be locked in at the latter spot. Baty should still hold down at least the strong side of a platoon at the hot corner given his left-handed bat, but given both he and Vientos have struggled to establish themselves in the majors thus far, either player could secure the full-time gig with a strong start to the campaign. Baty is also viewed as the superior defensive option, so he could simply retain the starting role with Vientos stuck on the bench or optioned to Triple-A Syracuse to begin the campaign.
