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.
Baty, 22, was promoted to Syracuse this month, where he’s hitting .364 with an RBI and three walks in six games. At Double-A Binghamton, he hit .312 with 19 homers and 59 RBIs.
The Mets bench boss indicated the team would prefer a player who can provide coverage in the middle infield in addition to playing third.
Neither Baty, the No. 12 pick in the 2019 MLB Draft, nor Mark Vientos, a second-rounder in 2017 and the franchise’s No. 5-ranked prospect, were ruled out as potential call-ups in the near future.
“There were conversations since early this morning,” Showalter said. “We took everything under consideration. I am not going to get into the two or three Zoom calls. … We’ll see where the next few days take us.”
