  • Mets' Jett Williams: Moving up to Double-A

    The Mets promoted Williams from High-A Brooklyn to Double-A Binghamton on Monday, Anthony DiComo of reports. Williams will receive his second promotion of the season after he turned in a .299/.451/.567 batting line with seven home runs and 12 stolen bases in 162 plate appearances for Brooklyn upon moving up from Single-A St. Lucie in early August. The excellent showing has earned him a late-season look at the Double-A level, an impressive development considering he won't turn 20 until November. Williams has mostly played shortstop this season but can also handle center field.

  • 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.

    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.
