Mets prospect Brett Baty follows through on throw with Brooklyn Cyclones

The MLB postseason is in full swing and the hot stove has begun to heat up, but many of the game’s top prospects are getting valuable playing experience in the Arizona Fall League, which began its schedule on Oct. 13.

The Mets have eight prospects suiting up for the Salt River Rafters of the AFL, headlined by the team’s No. 2 overall prospect Brett Baty.

Here’s a look at how the Mets have faired to this point in AFL play …

3B/OF Brett Baty

After an up-and-down start to the season, Baty had a strong week at the plate. He went 3-for-4 with an RBI in a 2-0 win over the Solar Sox on Nov. 4 and is now batting .262 on the season.

2B/OF Carlos Cortes

The 10th-ranked prospect in the Mets system by MLB Pipeline, the versatile Cortes has seen action in LF and as a DH. Cortes went 1-for-4 with two strikeouts in a 3-2 loss to the Solar Sox on Nov. 5.

C Hayden Senger

The 24-year-old right-handed hitting catcher is currently ranked as the Mets’ 21st overall prospect and the second highest ranked catcher, behind only No. 1 overall prospect Francisco Alvarez. Senger went 2-for-4 with a run scored on Oct. 30, but has since gone 2-for-13 over three games and dropping his average to .207.

INF Wilmer Reyes

A 23-year-old who played 35 games with High-A Brooklyn last season, Reyes has been seeing time at second base and shortstop for the Rafters. Reyes went 2-for-5 with an RBI in a 10-9 loss to the Scottsdale Scorpions on Nov. 2.

RHP Colin Holderman

A ninth-round-pick of the Mets in 2016, Holderman pitched in relief twice during the week. He threw a scoreless inning on Nov. 3, allowing no hits and a walk. Holderman improved on that against the Solar Sox on Nov. 5, pitching another scoreless inning without letting up a hit.

RHP Garrison Bryant

A 2016 36th-rounder who pitched in just one game for Brooklyn last season. He earned the loss on Nov. 3 to the Surprise Saguaros after allowing three earned runs on five hits (including a home run) with four strikeouts and a walk over 3.0 IP.

RHP Brian Metoyer

The 24-year-old struck earned a hold on Nov. 4, striking out three batters in one inning of relief and allowing just a hit and a walk.

RHP Connor Grey

Last season, he pitched in seven games with five starts for the Double-A Binghamton Rumble Ponies, compiling a 4.55 ERA in 31.2 innings. The 27-year-old threw three innings of two-hit ball on Nov. 3, striking out three batters in relief.
