Top Mets prospect Brett Baty gets call to big leagues

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.
