  • Mets' Brett Baty: Adjusting swing mechanics

    Baty spent the offseason studying video and working to get his top hand stronger through his swing, Tim Britton of The Athletic reports.

    "He's a typical right-hand thrower, left-hand bat where that top hand isn't your dominant hand," Mets assistant hitting coach Jeremy Barnes said. "That matters in keeping the barrel where you want to keep the barrel. It's just a matter of creating awareness around that, getting in a really good routine and then not trying to be perfect." A stronger top hand would create a more direct path to the ball and keep the 24-year-old's bat in the strike zone longer, hopefully improving his weak 69.1 percent contact rate from 2023. Baty is still the favorite to break camp as the Mets' starting third baseman, but if the club decides he needs more minor-league seasoning, veteran offseason addition Joey Wendle is available to platoon with Mark Vientos in Baty's place.

  • Mets' Brett Baty: Remains out

    Baty (groin) remains on the bench Saturday against Cincinnati.

    Baty is dealing with a groin strain, which is considered mild but is costing him key at-bats as he looks to make his case for a starting role next season. The battle for playing time at the hot corner in Queens seems wide open, with both Baty (.596 OPS in 97 games) and Mark Vientos (.588 OPS in 51 games) failing to stake their claim. Fellow rookie Ronny Mauricio (.743 OPS in 11 games) will start at third base Saturday.

  • Mets' Brett Baty: Not in lineup, getting scans

    Baty is not in the lineup Thursday versus Arizona as he undergoes imaging scans on his left groin, Abbey Mastracco of the New York Daily News reports.

    Danny Mendick has joined the Mets in New York in case Baty requires a stint on the 10-day injured list.

Mark Vientos will handle the hot corner in Thursday's series finale.

  • Mets' Brett Baty: Out with mild groin strain

  • Mets' Brett Baty: Officially back in big leagues

    Baty was recalled from Triple-A Syracuse on Friday.

    Baty slashed .246/.329/.493 with five home runs in 17 games with Syracuse after being sent down last month. The 23-year-old has posted a .212/.284/.332 line to this point at the major-league level but should see regular playing time at third base -- at least against right-handed pitching -- down the stretch. Baty is at the hot corner and batting eighth Friday against the Mariners.

  • Mets' Brett Baty: Returning to majors Friday

    Baty will be called up from Triple-A Syracuse on Friday when major-league rosters expand, Michael Mayer of MetsmerizedOnline.com reports.

    Baty has struggled to a .212/.284/.332 batting line in 353 big-league plate appearances since his debut in late 2022, but the 23-year-old was a preseason top-100 prospect and continues to crush it at the Triple-A level. The out-of-contention Mets might as well give him regular looks at third base as they play out the string. Ronny Mauricio is also reportedly getting the call, but he can cycle in at second base, left field and maybe some shortstop.
