  • Mets' Mark Vientos: Heads to bench

    Vientos will be on the bench for the first half of Saturday's doubleheader against the Phillies, Anthony DiComo of reports.

    Down the stretch of a lost season, Vientos has been given plenty of opportunities to stake his claim for a significant role next season, starting 18 consecutive games prior to this one. He homered five times over that stretch, but his .224/.257/.448 slash line (90 wRC+) wasn't exactly convincing. Brett Baty will be the designated hitter for the afternoon contest.

  • Mets' Mark Vientos: Homers twice in victory

    Vientos went 2-for-4 with a pair of solo home runs in Wednesday's 8-3 win over the Marlins.

    Vientos began the scoring in the contest with a solo shot in the second inning and added another solo blast in the sixth. This was the rookie's first multi-homer game of his big-league career -- he came into the contest with just six long balls over his first 236 plate appearances as a major leaguer. Vientos has demonstrated ample power in the minors, however, with 65 long balls over 245 minor-league games across the past three seasons.

  • Mets' Mark Vientos: Knocks three hits

    Vientos went 3-for-4 with a run, one RBI and a stolen base in Sunday's 8-4 win over the Reds.

    Vientos knocked an RBI single and swiped second base in the fifth inning and later scored a run in the seventh. It was the first three-hit game of his MLB career and his third multi-hit performance this month. Vientos is slashing .218/.262/.345 with 16 RBI through 187 plate appearances on the year, but he's gone 15-for-50 (.300) over his last 14 games.

  • Mets' Mark Vientos: Swats homer in victory

    Vientos went 1-for-4 with a two-run home run Wednesday in a 7-1 win against the Diamondbacks.

    Vientos took Arizona ace Zac Gallen deep for a two-run shot in the sixth inning, increasing New York's lead to 6-0. It was his second long ball through eight games in September and his fifth across 49 contests overall this season. During his time so far with the Mets, Vientos has yet to fully unlock the power he displayed in mashing 40 long balls across 162 games in the minors over the past two campaigns.

  • Mets' Mark Vientos: Back in action Tuesday

    Vientos (foot) is batting fifth as the Mets' designated hitter Tuesday against the Nationals, Anthony DiComo of reports.

    Vientos hasn't seen game action since Saturday while dealing with a foot injury, but he'll rejoin the lineup for Tuesday's contest in Washington. The 23-year-old is 5-for-10 with two solo homers in his past three games but still has a disappointing .586 OPS in 144 plate appearances this season.

  • Mets' Mark Vientos: Departs with sore foot

    Vientos had to be lifted from Saturday's game versus the Mariners because of right foot soreness, Anthony DiComo of reports.

    Vientos evidently was bothered by a sore foot during his recent injured list stint due to left wrist tendinitis, and the foot issue flared up on him while running the bases Saturday. He'll be re-evaluated Sunday. Vientos cranked a solo home run and reached base three times Saturday before exiting.

  • 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: Clubs third homer

    Vientos went 2-for-4 with a solo home run in Tuesday's 2-1 loss to the Rangers.

    The rookie ruined a combined shutout bid for Texas by driving a 100.6-mph Aroldis Chapman fastball the other way to right-center field in the ninth inning. Vientos has started three straight games since recovering from a wrist injury and coming off the IL -- two at third base and one at DH -- but if Brett Baty (.298/.396/.649 at Triple-A since his demotion with a 21.6 percent strikeout rate) rejoins the roster in September, Vientos could lose most of his playing time at the hot corner. Vientos has done little to show he deserves a regular spot in the lineup, slashing .195/.234/.305 over 137 plate appearances in the majors this season with three homers and 11 RBI.

  • Mets' Mark Vientos: Expected back Sunday

    Vientos (wrist) is expected to be activated from the 10-day injured list Sunday, Anthony DiComo of 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: 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: Begins rehab assignment

    Vientos (wrist) began a rehab assignment with Triple-A Syracuse on Friday, 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: Nursing wrist inflammation

    Vientos, who is out of the lineup for Wednesday's game against the Pirates, was diagnosed with left wrist inflammation after undergoing an MRI, Laura Albanese of Newsday reports.

    Vientos was sent in for the MRI after he was lifted for a pinch hitter in Tuesday's 7-4 loss due to his bothersome wrist. While he appears to have avoided a serious injury, he'll remain day-to-day heading into the Mets' four-game series in St. Louis this weekend.

  • 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 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: Staking claim to everyday role

    Vientos will start at third base and bat sixth in Sunday's game against the Orioles.

    Vientos will stick in the starting nine for the fifth time in six games and is slashing .257/.289/.429 in 11 games overall since he was called up from Triple-A Syracuse on July 20. With the 50-60 Mets effectively removing themselves from the National League wild-card race, the 23-year-old Vientos will likely to continue to poach work from the 30-year-old Daniel Vogelbach as the organization prioritizes the development of some of its younger players.

  • 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: Batting second Wednesday

    Vientos is starting at third base and batting second Wednesday versus the Yankees.

    This is the highest major-league lineup spot of the year for Vientos, who has gone 4-for-10 with a double since being recalled from Triple-A Syracuse last Thursday. Brett Baty continues to struggle offensively and the underperforming Mets might move some parts at the trade deadline, so Vientos could perhaps be in for an elevated role down the stretch between the hot corner and DH.
