Why the Mets didn’t call up Brett Baty after Luis Guillorme’s injury

Brett Baty isn’t getting a Mets call-up — yet.

The Post’s Mike Puma reported Sunday the Amazins considered promoting their No. 2 prospect with Luis Guillorme awaiting an MRI. On Monday, it was announced Guillorme is out 4-6 weeks with a left groin strain, and Baty was not an option “at this point,” according to manager Buck Showalter.

“No, Brett won’t be here today,” Showalter said.

For now, the Mets will go with infielder Deven Marrero, added from Triple A Syracuse.
