  • Mets' Brett Baty: Suffers torn UCL in thumb

    Baty will undergo surgery to repair a torn UCL in his right thumb Thursday and was placed on the 10-day injured list, retroactive to Aug. 29.

    The 22-year-old sat out the past couple days after suffering the injury against the Rockies over the weekend, and he may now be sidelined for the rest of the regular season. A standard recovery timeline for this type of procedure is about five weeks, so if all goes well in his recovery, Baty could be ready for game action early in the playoffs.

  • Mets' Brett Baty: Not starting Wednesday

    Baty (thumb) isn't in the lineup Wednesday against the Dodgers.

    Baty was unavailable for Tuesday's 4-3 loss due to a right thumb injury, and he'll remain out of the lineup a day later. According to Tim Britton of The Athletic, Baty received some imaging for his thumb, and while the Mets are satisfied enough with his ability to play defense or pinch run, it's yet clear if he can comfortably swing a bat. Eduardo Escobar will start at the hot corner and bat eighth in Baty's stead Wednesday.

  • Mets' Brett Baty: Managing thumb issue

    Baty was unavailable during Tuesday's loss to the Dodgers due to a thumb injury, Anthony DiComo of reports.

    The 22-year-old suffered the injury over the weekend against the Rockies and was held out of the lineup Tuesday, and he apparently wasn't available as a pinch hitter. Baty should be considered day-to-day heading into Wednesday's matchup with Los Angeles.

  • Mets' Brett Baty: Takes seat versus lefty

    Baty is out of the lineup for Tuesday's game against the Dodgers.

    Baty has cobbled together a four-game hitting streak to bring his average (.184) closer to the Mendoza Line, but the lefty-hitting rookie could still find himself on the bench regularly against left-handers like the Dodgers' Andrew Heaney until he first proves he can master right-handed pitching. The switch-hitting Eduardo Escobar will spell Baty at third base.

  • Mets' Brett Baty: Not starting Saturday

    Baty will hit the bench Saturday against the Rockies.

    Eduardo Escobar returned from an oblique injury Saturday and will start at third base, but Baty hasn't been sent down to clear space, so he's presumably still part of the picture at the hot corner. He could lose at-bats going forward, however, as he's hit just .171/.237/.343 in his first 10 major-league games.

  • Mets' Brett Baty: Homers in first MLB at-bat

    Baty went 1-for-4 with a solo home run and an additional RBI in Wednesday's 9-7 victory over Atlanta.

    Baty took Jake Odorizzi deep in his first career at-bat. Baty only played six games at Triple-A Syracuse, but he mashed at the Double-A level to the tune of a .312/.406/.544 slash line, and Wednesday's homer gives some early validation to the team's decision to promote him. It was also a plus that Baty didn't go down on strikes in his debut, considering he'd mustered a 25.0 percent strikeout rate in Double-A Binghamton.

  • Mets' Brett Baty: Batting eighth in MLB debut

    The Mets selected Baty's contract from Triple-A Syracuse on Wednesday. He'll start at third base and bat eighth in his MLB debut Wednesday in Atlanta, Anthony DiComo of reports.

    Expect the 22-year-old to get an extended look as the Mets' everyday third baseman while both Luis Guillorme (groin) and Eduardo Escobar (oblique) are on the shelf. The lefty-hitting Baty has only six games of experience above the Double-A level, but he shined across stops at the Mets' top two minor-league affiliates this season, slashing a collective .315/.410/.533 with a 24.8 percent strikeout rate and 11.6 percent walk rate. Baty could be an appealing speculative pickup in deeper mixed leagues for managers looking for an infusion of power from a corner-infield spot.

  • Mets' Brett Baty: Joins big club in Atlanta

    Baty joined the Mets on Wednesday and is expected to be formally called up from Triple-A Syracuse ahead of the team's game in Atlanta, reports.

    With Eduardo Escobar (oblique) in line to join Luis Guillorme (groin) on the 10-day injured list, the 22-year-old Baty should immediately settle in as the Mets' everyday third baseman. Whether he retains the gig when Guillorme and Escobar are likely back to full health at some point in September will likely be determined by how well Baty performs over the next few weeks in his first taste of the big leagues. Baty showed an advanced approach at the plate between stops at Syracuse and Double-A Binghamton this season, slashing .315/.410/.533 while striking out at a 24.8 percent rate and walking at an 11.6 percent clip across 420 plate appearances.

  • Mets' Brett Baty: Headed for majors

    The Mets plan to call up Baty from Triple-A Syracuse either Tuesday or Wednesday, Michael Mayer of reports.

    The Mets have yet to confirm that Baty will join the team in advance of Tuesday's game in Atlanta, but it looks as though he'll get the call to the big leagues no later than Wednesday in the wake of top third baseman Luis Guillorme (groin) landing on the injured list Monday. Though Eduardo Escobar offers an experienced replacement option at the position, he's turned in a measly .653 OPS on the season, so the Mets likely believe that the 22-year-old Baty can provide an upgrade at the hot corner. The No. 12 overall pick of the 2019 First-Year Player Draft, Baty has continued to rake at the Triple-A level since being promoted from Double-A Binghamton last week. Between his two minor-league stops this season, Baty has slashed .315/.410/.533 with 19 home runs.

  • Mets' Brett Baty: Earns promotion to Triple-A

    The Mets promoted Baty from Double-A Binghamton to Triple-A Syracuse on Monday, Michael Mayer of reports.

    In Syracuse, Baty will be joining two of the organization's other top position prospects in catcher Francisco Alvarez and outfielder Mark Vientos. The 22-year-old Baty earned the call to Triple-A after slashing .312/.406/.544 with 41 extra-base hits and an 11.9 percent walk rate across 394 plate appearances at Binghamton.

  • Mets' Brett Baty: On fire for Rumble Ponies

    Baty launched two two-run home runs for Double-A Binghamton on Thursday before the game was suspended due to severe weather, Michael Avallone of reports.

    The game will be completed Friday afternoon, with the Rumble Ponies already ahead 10-1 in the top of the third inning thanks in large part to Baty's own thunder. He's been locked in a lot longer than that, however -- over his last 16 games heading into Thursday, the 22-year-old slashed .424/.506/.742 with five homers and 20 RBI. Baty has soared up prospect rankings thanks to a breakout campaign, and with third base being the one spot in the Mets' infield that doesn't seem set for 2023, a big-league debut next season seems entirely possible if he continues slugging in the high minors.
