  • Mets' Brett Baty: Not expected to need IL stint

    Baty (hamstring) said Wednesday that he's optimistic that he'll avoid the 10-day injured list, Anthony DiComo of MLB.com reports.

    Baty experienced left hamstring tightness during Tuesday's 3-1 win over the Pirates and is out of the lineup for Wednesday's series finale. However, he's feeling much better a day later and won't be sent in for imaging, leaving him confident that he'll be ready to play in a few days. The Mets have an off day Thursday, providing the young third baseman an extra day of rest before he perhaps returns to action this weekend against the Dodgers.

  • Mets' Brett Baty: Won't start Wednesday

    Baty (hamstring) is out of the lineup for Wednesday's game against the Pirates, Anthony DiComo of MLB.com reports.

    Baty will hit the bench after exiting Tuesday's 3-1 win over the Pirates with left hamstring tightness, but he might have been a candidate to sit even if fully healthy with Pittsburgh bringing a left-hander (Bailey Falter) to the hill. The Mets seem to be viewing Baty as day-to-day and are hopeful that a day off Wednesday plus Thursday's team off day might provide sufficient time for him to move past the hamstring issue. Zack Short gets the nod at third base Wednesday in Baty's stead.

  • Mets' Brett Baty: Battling hamstring tightness

    Baty was removed from Tuesday's game against the Pirates due to left hamstring tightness, Anthony DiComo of MLB.com reports.

    Baty was replaced at third base by Joey Wendle ahead of the seventh inning, though it's unclear what exactly caused his injury. The 24-year-old infielder said after the game his injury isn't considered to be serious, so it seems he will avoid a trip to the IL.

  • Mets' Brett Baty: Gets Sunday off

    Baty is out of the lineup for Sunday's game against the Royals.

    With a tough lefty (Cole Ragans) on the bump for Kansas City, the lefty-hitting Baty will give way to Zack Short at third base. Baty will rest for the first time since March 30 after he saw his seven-game hit streak come to an end with an 0-for-4 showing in Saturday's 11-7 loss.

  • Mets' Brett Baty: Hit streak at seven games

    Baty went 2-for-4 with a double, a run scored and two RBI in Friday's win over the Royals.

    The 24-year-old third baseman has started to get a read on big-league pitching. Baty has hit safely in seven straight games and 11 of 13 to begin the season, slashing .327/.365/.408 with a homer, five runs and eight RBI. The power he flashed in the minors isn't showing up consistently yet, but it's likely only a matter of time until it does -- he slugged 10 homers in only 26 games last year at Triple-A.

  • Mets' Brett Baty: Three hits in Monday's win

    Baty went 3-for-5 with a run scored in Monday's win over Atlanta.

    All three knocks were singles, but it was still another impressive effort from the 24-year-old third baseman. After struggling during his first extended stint in the majors last year, Baty's come out like gangbusters to begin 2024, batting .333 (12-for-36) through 10 games with a homer, four runs, five RBI and a 3:8 BB:K.

  • Mets' Brett Baty: On base four times in twin bill

    Baty went 1-for-6 with three walks, a run scored and an RBI across both games of Thursday's doubleheader split with the Tigers.

    The 24-year-old third baseman reached base three times in the matinee before drawing another free pass in the nightcap. The walks were the first of the season for Baty, who's batting .222 (4-for-18) through six games with a homer, two runs and four RBI as he looks to establish himself at the hot corner for the Mets.

  • Mets' Brett Baty: Sitting versus southpaw

    Baty isn't in the Mets' lineup Saturday against Milwaukee.

    Baty was held hitless in three at-bats during Friday's season opener, and he'll sit down Saturday with left-hander DL Hall on the mound for the Brewers. Zack Short will start at the hot corner and bat eighth.

  • Mets' Brett Baty: Makes roster, everyday role possible

    Baty was informed Sunday he has made the Mets' Opening Day roster, and he could begin the season as the club's everyday third baseman since Mark Vientos was optioned, Abbey Mastracco of the New York Daily News reports.

    A platoon at third base with Baty and Vientos seemed plausible after New York signed veteran slugger J.D. Martinez on Thursday, but Vientos will instead begin the campaign at Triple-A Syracuse. Baty posted a .212/.275/.323 slash line and 28.2 percent strikeout rate in 108 games last season, so he likely won't have a ton of job security if he continues to struggle in 2024.

  • Mets' Brett Baty: Could platoon after Martinez deal

    Baty may open the season in a reduced role after the Mets agreed to a contract with J.D. Martinez on Thursday, which was reported by Jon Heyman of the New York Post.

    Baty and Mark Vientos were expected to begin the season as the Mets' primary options at third base and designated hitter. but Martinez will now be locked in at the latter spot. Baty should still hold down at least the strong side of a platoon at the hot corner given his left-handed bat, but given both he and Vientos have struggled to establish themselves in the majors thus far, either player could secure the full-time gig with a strong start to the campaign. Baty is also viewed as the superior defensive option, so he could simply retain the starting role with Vientos stuck on the bench or optioned to Triple-A Syracuse to begin the campaign.

  • Mets' Brett Baty: Scratched with back tightness

    Baty was scratched from the Mets' lineup ahead of Wednesday's spring training game versus Houston due to minor back tightness, Tim Healey of Newsday reports.

    Describing Baty's injury as "minor" suggests the team doesn't consider his back to be a huge issue, and Baty's availability for Opening Day shouldn't be affected. The 24-year-old infielder is 7-for-29 with a homer, three RBI and six runs scored so far this spring and projects as New York's primary third baseman despite a lack of offensive production so far in his young MLB career.

  • Mets' Brett Baty: Returns to lineup

    Baty (back) will start at third base and bat cleanup in Thursday's Grapefruit League game against the Cardinals.

    The Mets scratched Baty from Wednesday's lineup due to back tightness, but the issue was described as minor and he seems to have already turned the page. Baty is sitting with a .669 OPS this spring, and while he still projects as the primary starter at third base, there have been rumors that the Mets are looking at bringing in J.D. Davis after Davis was cut loose by San Francisco.

  • Mets' Brett Baty: Smacks first spring homer

    Baty went 1-for-3 with a solo home run in Saturday's Grapefruit League game against the Marlins.

    The 24-year-old third baseman took minor-league arm Roddery Munoz deep in the seventh inning for his first long ball of the spring. Baty established himself as one of the Mets' top prospects while coming up through the system but fell on his face in his first extended big-league action in 2023, stumbling to a .212/.275/.323 slash line over 386 plate appearances. A strong showing this spring would help reassure fantasy investors, but he'd likely need to be a complete disaster to lose the starting job at the hot corner for Opening Day.
