  • Mets' Mark Vientos: Homers in 2023 debut

    Vientos went 1-for-4 with a two-run home run against the Rays in an extra-inning win Wednesday.

    Vientos was called up from Triple-A Syracuse prior to the contest and provided a big spark in his first major-league game of the campaign, putting the Mets on the board with a game-tying two-run homer in the seventh inning. The long ball was the second of his big-league career, as he went deep once over 36 at-bats with the Mets last season. Vientos was dominating in the minors this year prior to his call-up, slashing .333/.416/.688 with 11 doubles, 13 homers and 37 RBI over 166 plate appearances.

  • Mets' Mark Vientos: Not in lineup Thursday

    Vientos is not in the lineup Thursday versus the Rays.

    Vientos slugged a two-run homer Wednesday in his season debut with the Mets, building on his blistering start to the year at Triple-A Syracuse, but he'll head to the bench for Thursday's series finale at Citi Field. Daniel Vogelbach will serve as New York's designated hitter.

  • Mets' Mark Vientos: Officially recalled from minors

    The Mets recalled Vientos from Triple-A Syracuse on Wednesday.

    Vientos earned the promotion by putting together a 1.104 OPS with 13 home runs across 166 plate appearances at Syracuse. He might initially only start against lefties but could certainly play his way into an everyday role. Vientos is included in the starting nine against a lefty (Josh Fleming) in Wednesday's game against the Rays, manning third base and batting eighth while the lefty-hitting Brett Baty takes a seat.

  • Mets' Mark Vientos: Hits way to majors

    The Mets plan to recall Vientos from Triple-A Syracuse prior to Wednesday's game against the Rays, Jeff Passan of reports.

    New York is hoping the 23-year-old can provide a lift to a sputtering lineup, as Vientos had been one of the top performers in the International League this season with a 1.104 OPS, 11.9 percent walk rate and 20.5 percent strikeout rate over 166 plate appearances. The slugger could initially serve as a short-side platoon option at third base or designated hitter, though it wouldn't be surprising if he eventually eclipsed Daniel Vogelbach as the Mets' preferred option at DH. Vogelbach has drawn walks at a prolific rate (16.8 percent) this season but is offering little power production (.119 ISO), an element the Mets could desperately use in their lineup.

  • Mets' Mark Vientos: Continuing to rake at Triple-A

    Vientos is slashing .364/.446/.764 through 15 games with Triple-A Syracuse to begin the season with four doubles, six home runs, 14 runs and 17 RBI.

    The 23-year-old nearly slugged his way onto the big-league roster this spring, and Vientos has carried over his hot hitting into the regular season. Francisco Alvarez and Brett Baty have already been promoted to the Mets' roster, but it might take an injury to one of the team's 1B/DH options for Vientos to join them in New York despite his impressive production.

  • Mets' Mark Vientos: Optioned to Syracuse

    The Mets optioned Vientos to Triple-A Syracuse on Saturday.

    Vientos appeared to have a good chance to win a bench spot with the Mets out of the Grapefruit League, but the 23-year-old will begin the season in the International League. He could be an option for New York if there's an injury or if the Mets are looking for offense in the summer months, particularly against left-handed pitching.

  • Mets' Mark Vientos: In mix for bench spot

    Vientos could open the season on the 26-man roster if Darin Ruf gets placed on the injured list due to his sore wrist, Tim Britton of The Athletic reports.

    Ruf has done little in a Mets uniform since being picked up from the Giants last season, and his sore wrist has limited him to only 13 plate appearances so far this spring, in which he's managed two hits and struck out five times. Vientos, meanwhile, has gone 11-for-36 (.308) with three doubles and two homers, although his 1:14 BB:K is a giant red flag that he isn't going to maintain that kind of batting average for very long. The 23-year-old would also offer more defensive versatility in a bench role than Ruf. The veteran slugger still has some time left this spring to prove his wrist is 100 percent and re-establish himself as a right-handed platoon option, but if the Mets decide to shut him down, Vientos appears to be the most likely candidate to benefit.

  • Mets' Mark Vientos: Clubs two homers Saturday

    Vientos went 3-for-4 with two home runs and five RBI in Saturday's Grapefruit League game against the Marlins.

    Getting the start at third base and hitting second in the order, Vientos launched a two-run shot off minor-league reliever Justin Evans in the fourth inning before taking potential Miami closer Dylan Floro deep in the fifth for a three-run blast, with both homers being no-doubters to straightaway center field. Vientos doesn't appear to have much of a chance at winning the starting job at the hot corner for Opening Day with both Eduardo Escobar and Brett Baty ahead of him in the pecking order, but he's doing what he can to win a spot on the big-league bench. The 23-year-old prospect has gone 7-for-21 to begin his spring, with four of the hits (two doubles plus Saturday's home runs) going for extra bases.

  • Mets' Mark Vientos: Misses wild-card roster

    Vientos is absent from the Mets' roster for the NL Wild Card Series against the Padres on Friday, Deesha Thosar of Fox Sports reports.

    Vientos made his big-league debut Sept. 11 and won't be included on New York's roster to open the playoffs. He played in 16 games down the stretch and had a .167/.268/.278 slash line with one home run and three RBI.

  • Mets' Mark Vientos: Hits first career homer

    Vientos went 1-for-3 with a solo home run and a walk in a 10-4 loss to the Athletics on Saturday.

    Vientos hit his first major-league home run on a 3-1 offering from Ken Waldichuk to tie the game. The 22-year-old rookie third baseman is slashing .167/.286/.333 in 24 big league at-bats.
