Unleashing the Mets’ Powerhouse: Brett Baty Vying for Third Base in Spring Training!


The Mets’ third base position is the topic of much discussion.

The New York Mets finished 12 games below .500 last year adding to pessimism surrounding this year’s team. Recently GM David Stearns spoke out on the prospective third baseman for his Big Apple based team and it has fans talking on X.

Recently, Stearns’ team added a key player who previously played professional with the Padres and Yankees. Stearns dropped a hard truth on Yoshinobu Yamamoto’s free agency pursuit.

The third base position is one that has been widely discussed recently, and now fans are wondering if Brett Baty will be there on Opening Day.

The hot corner was manned by Brett Baty for the Mets last season and Baty turned in .242/14/51 hitting splits for New York.

Baty’s position isn’t fully secure heading into this season however according to Stearns, who spoke at a press conference.

Fans React to Baty News on Twitter

The prospects of Vientos, Wendle and Short in the Mets’ infielder and the competition for playing time at third base drew comments from fans on X, most of whom appeared to be jaded Mets fans.

“If Joey Wendle is playing 3B every day, that’s a big problem,” one fan said.
