Brett Baty’s time has come.
ESPN’s Jeff Passan reports the Mets are calling the talented prospect up to the big leagues from Triple-A Syracuse. The Mets selected the third baseman/outfielder in the first round of the 2019 MLB Draft.
It was only a matter of time before Baty earned his first shot in the majors. Many believed he could be a September call-up or potential starting option next year. Obviously, the recent news regarding Luis Guillorme sped up the process — the third baseman suffered a left groin strain in Sunday’s win over Philly and is expected to miss 4-6 weeks.
