The New York Mets season is already underway. They brought 26 players with them to start the year in what we hope is a successful campaign.

But, just because a player has been sent to the minors does not mean that he is gone for good. The Mets have quite a few prospects on their minor league teams who are working hard, refining their game, and preparing for their call up to the major league team. They should be ready for promotion very soon. Here are a few of the players who have the best chance of being seen at Citi Field before the All-Star break.

1) First New York Mets player who will be called up by the All-Star break - Brett Baty

It’s no secret that Brett Baty has the talent to be a major league baseball player and some say he might even be a future star. After hitting .325 in spring training, the real surprise was that he didn’t join up with the big team. His bat looks ready, and he has worked hard to improve his fielding. Brett Baty was taken in the first round of the 2019 Major League draft. Last season, he hit .312 with 19 home runs and 59 RBI at AA Binghamton.

The New York Mets player that he will replace - Eduardo Escobar

Eduardo Escobar is presently the Mets starting third baseman and is in the final year of his contract.
If he should get off to a slow start like he did last year, Brett Baty will be here faster than a New York Minute. The Mets might consider having Escobar share third base with Baty for a while, move him to another position, or even use him as a valuable part of a trade. Barring injury, Brett Baty is coming and will be here soon. How long he stays will be up to him.
