While Lee has already made his Mets debut, there is a chance we could see third baseman Brett Baty get called up to the big show in September. Baty is the Mets’ No. 4 overall prospect. He was drafted by New York out of high school in the 2019 MLB Amateur Draft. The former No. 12 overall pick is having a great year at the plate split between Single-A Brooklyn and Double-A Binghamton.

Baty is hitting .291 on the season, and has certainly held his own since being promoted to Double-A. He has .250 batting average, three home runs and 14 runs batted in during his 22 games with the Rumble Ponies. While his estimated time of arrival at the big-league level is not until next season, he could be one of the players getting called up in September, even if it is a cup of coffee.

Again, this is all about getting the MLB jitters out of his system before making his triumphant return to the big leagues at some point during next season. His power at the plate is his best attribute, in addition to his arm. While he is below-average on the base path, Baty projects as an above-average major-league hitter. He may be a tad raw, but he could earn this big opportunity.

What other top prospects will the Mets look at calling up to the big-league roster in September?
