The New York Mets provided an update on their prospect Brett Baty on Wednesday morning after he left Tuesday’s game at Triple-A Syracuse with right thumb soreness.
Baty had tests done and they revealed no structural damage, the team said. He is listed as day-to-day with right thumb inflammation.
New York Mets No. 2 prospect Brett Baty is scheduled to undergo imaging tests after injuring his right thumb in Tuesday’s game at Triple-A Syracuse.
The 23-year-old required surgery for a torn ligament in that same thumb last September. This latest issue is being called right thumb soreness for now.
Baty started the season in Syracuse after losing the third-base job to Eduardo Escobar in spring training. He had gotten off to a strong start to the season, going 5-for-14 with two home runs and a stolen base in three games.
