Brett Baty had a great game, going 2-for-5 with a double and a home run, driving in one run and scoring two himself, helping the Mets to a 10-9 win over the Guardians.
This performance was a welcome sight for Baty, who has struggled at the plate so far this season, hitting just .250 with a .281 BABIP over 88 at-bats. Despite his struggles, Baty has shown some power, hitting four home runs and driving in 10 runs in 27 games played.
Brett Baty went three-for-nine with a home run, two runs, and an RBI in the Mets' split of their doubleheader against the Braves on Monday.
Baty started both games and has firmly established himself as the Mets' third baseman. Baty is hitting .333 on the season; however, his high K% and BABIP suggest it may not last. He's worth a pick-up in deep fantasy leagues if you have a need at the hot corner as a young player with potential hitting in a good lineup.
Brett Baty went three-for-three with a solo home run in the Mets' victory over the Nationals on Thursday.
Baty appears to have taken over the third base job from Eduardo Escobar, starting most of the games since his recall on April 17. He'd been quiet until Thursday's three-hit performance, which raised his average from .240 to .321. He'll have to show a bit more to interest most fantasy managers, but he's worth watching, especially in the Mets' high-powered offense.
New York Mets third baseman Brett Baty is on the bench to begin Wednesday's contest with the Nationals.
Baty has been getting the bulk of reps at the hot corner over veteran Eduardo Escobar but has yet to take full advantage. After destroying Triple-A pitching over a nine-game stretch, Baty is hitting just .250 with zero homers and one double across 25 plate appearances at the big-league level. Escobar will return to the lineup for the first time since April 20 and hit eighth against Nationals left-hander MacKenzie Gore.
Brett Baty is back in the lineup for the New York Mets against the Los Angeles Dodgers Wednesday afternoon.
After sitting out Tuesday’s contest for the Mets, the top prospect returns to the lineup to start at third base and bat seventh against Los Angeles right-hander Noah Syndergaard Wednesday afternoon.
