  • Mets' Mark Vientos: Misses wild-card roster

    Vientos is absent from the Mets' roster for the NL Wild Card Series against the Padres on Friday, Deesha Thosar of Fox Sports reports.

    Vientos made his big-league debut Sept. 11 and won't be included on New York's roster to open the playoffs. He played in 16 games down the stretch and had a .167/.268/.278 slash line with one home run and three RBI.

  • Mets' Mark Vientos: Hits first career homer

    Vientos went 1-for-3 with a solo home run and a walk in a 10-4 loss to the Athletics on Saturday.

    Vientos hit his first major-league home run on a 3-1 offering from Ken Waldichuk to tie the game. The 22-year-old rookie third baseman is slashing .167/.286/.333 in 24 big league at-bats.

  • Mets' Mark Vientos: Hitting eighth in debut

    Vientos will serve as the designated hitter and hit eighth Sunday in his big-league debut.

    Vientos did not see action Saturday after being called up for the first time, but he will make his first start as a major leaguer in the final game of the Mets' series against the Marlins.

  • Mets' Mark Vientos: Earns first career call-up

    The Mets will call up Vientos from Triple-A Syracuse on Saturday, Jon Heyman of the New York Post reports.

    Contact concerns may ultimately prevent Vientos from making the most of his considerable power, but he hits the ball hard enough that he may be able to find success despite the whiffs. That's been the case for him in 101 games for Triple-A Syracuse this year, as he's struck out 28.6 percent of the time but still managed to hit .283/.361/.524 with 24 home runs. He isn't in the lineup for Saturday's game against the Marlins but could earn at-bats at third base or designated hitter down the stretch, especially against lefties.

  • Mets' Mark Vientos: Scratched with headache

    Vientos was scratched from Triple-A Syracuse's lineup Tuesday due to a headache, Joel Sherman of the New York Post reports.

    Rumors of a call-up began to surface after Vientos was scratched from Tuesday's lineup, but he just experienced a headache during batting practice. The 21-year-old is one of New York's top prospects and has a .282/.359/.523 slash line with 23 home runs and 73 RBI at Triple-A this year, but the organization has yet to promote him for his first taste of the big leagues.

  • Mets' Mark Vientos: Active at Triple-A

    Vientos (knee) returned from Triple-A Syracuse's 7-day injured list Sunday and went 1-for-5 with a home run and two RBI in the club's 10-1 win over Scranton/Wilkes-Barre.

    Vientos is back in action after missing a week and a half due to knee discomfort. The 2017 second-round pick is slashing .248/.331/.482 with eight home runs through his 160 plate appearances with Syracuse this season.

  • Mets' Mark Vientos: Managing knee discomfort

    Vientos was scratched from Friday's lineup at Triple-A Syracuse due to knee discomfort, Anthony DiComo of reports.

    Vientos has been productive in Syracuse since the start of May, slashing .320/.400/.600 with six home runs, three doubles, 14 runs and 14 RBI over 20 games during that time. The team doesn't sound too concerned about the 22-year-old's knee issue, so he should tentatively be considered day-to-day.

  • Mets' Mark Vientos: Flashing power

    Vientos has gone 8-for-22 (.364) over his last six games for Triple-A Syracuse with four home runs and seven RBI.

    Considered one of the organization's top prospects, Vientos has had a brutal start to the season at Syracuse, but he seems to be finding his groove. Strikeouts remain an issue for Vientos -- he's fanned seven times in his last six games, and has a 30.0 percent strikeout rate through 100 plate appearances on the year -- but his .212/.320/.459 slash line will rise quickly with an extended hot streak. He posted a .282/.354/.584 line between Syracuse and Double-A Binghamton over 83 games in 2021 with 25 homers.

  • Mets' Mark Vientos: Struggling in Triple-A

    Vientos is hitting just .167/.282/.303 with one homer across 21 games so far this season for Triple-A Syracuse.

    After he hit 25 homers in just 83 games across Double-A and Triple-A last year, expectations were high for Vientos entering this season, but he simply hasn't delivered so far. If there's a bright side to be scraped from his stats, it's that he's drawn six walks in his last six games -- a big improvement from the four he managed in the first 15 -- but the 22-year-old's prospect luster has always stemmed from his massive raw power, and that's simply been missing in action. He's striking out at a career-high clip (32.1 percent), and his 66.7 percent groundball rate as well as his 23.1 percent flyball rate are well out of line with his career norms. It sure is hard to hit the ball over the fence often when you're hitting it on the ground two-thirds of the time. The good news is that Vientos has a lengthy minor-league track record of elevating the ball, so look for him to tweak his swing and get back to what he does best.

  • Mets' Mark Vientos: Moves to minor-league camp

    Vientos was optioned to minor-league camp Monday, Tim Healey of Newsday reports.

    Vientos got to spend some time in big-league camp as a member of the 40-man roster, but he's not quite ready to push for an active roster spot. He's only played 11 Triple-A games, but he could make his case for a promotion with a strong start at that level this season.

  • Mets' Mark Vientos: Rewarded with 40-man roster spot

    Vientos was added to the Mets' 40-man roster Friday, Justin Toscano of The Bergen Record reports.

    Vientos seems to get overshadowed at times by Brett Baty and Ronny Mauricio, but he's probably going to beat them to the majors and he has big-time power potential. His strikeout rate will likely always be a little high, but he could hit 30-plus home runs if he can make contact at a passable clip.

  • Mets' Mark Vientos: Reaches Triple-A

    The Mets promoted Vientos from Double-A Binghamton to Triple-A Syracuse on Monday, Deesha Thosar of the New York Daily News reports.

    Vientos' only particularly notable tool is his power, but he's shown enough of that to be one of the Mets' top prospects. In 72 games for Binghamton this season, he's hit .281/.346/.580 with 22 homers. His 28.4 percent strikeout rate is potentially cause for concern, as striking out that much at that level could indicate that he'll whiff an untenable amount by the time he gets to the big leagues. However, he won't turn 22 until December, so he is well ahead of schedule.
