Player Outlook
Enough undersized hitting prospects have gone on to have massive MLB success in recent years that Jett Williams doesn't face as much skepticism as he may have five or 10 years ago. A 5-foot-6, 175-pound up-the-middle defender with 70-grade speed, Williams has a keen eye and is adept at making pitchers throw him something he can drive. He had 13 home runs and 45 steals on 52 attempts in 121 games as a 19-year-old across Single-A, High-A and Double-A. Williams logged an excellent 35.9 Hard% while showcasing his masterful command of the zone (22.1 K%, 19.5 BB%). His groundball rate was under 35% at both Single-A and High-A, so Williams should be able to get the most of his power potential. He played 92 games at shortstop and 21 games in center field, with second base and left field also being obvious spots he could play as needed. Williams should return to Double-A for the start of his age-20 season.

  • Mets' Jett Williams: Sent to minor-league camp

    The Mets reassigned Williams to minor-league spring training Sunday, Tim Britton of The Athletic reports. The 20-year-old has received reps at shortstop and in center field during the first couple weeks of big-league camp, but he'll shift to the minor-league side after the first round of roster cuts. Williams is the Mets' top prospect and should open 2024 at Double-A Binghamton after he split most of last season between the Single-A and High-A levels, where he had an .876 OPS in 410 at-bats.

  • Mets' Jett Williams: Getting on base at Single-A

    Williams is hitting .207 with a .401 OBP, one home run and 13 steals in 34 games for Single-A St. Lucie. The 19-year-old shortstop has a strong batted-ball profile, with a 32 percent groundball rate and all-fields approach, but it hasn't translated into a high batting average in the early going. Even as an undersized 5-foot-6 middle infielder, Williams is strong where it counts and is expected to eventually develop notable over-the-fence power to go with his 70-grade speed.

  • Mets' Jett Williams: Solid start in rookie ball

    Williams has played in 10 games for the Mets' Florida Coast League affiliate, putting up a .250/.366/.438 line with a homer, six steals and a 4:6 BB:K. He's certainly living up to his name on the basepaths, as Williams has succeeded on all of his steal attempts. The 14th overall pick in this year's draft, the 18-year-old Williams is years and years away from the majors, but he's off to a fine start to his professional career.
