2021 Fantasy Outlook
The main development for Baty last season was that he reported to the alternate training site in August in the best shape he has been in since the Mets drafted him with the No. 12 overall pick in 2019. Listed at 6-foot-3, 210 pounds when he was drafted, Baty was not unathletic, but he had a bit of a doughy physique. He is reportedly more toned, and monster all-fields power is still his calling card. He is not unlike Nolan Jones, in that he is much more valuable in OBP leagues than AVG leagues as he works long at-bats, which leads to an abundance of walks and strikeouts. That patient approach was evident during the fall instructional league. Baty turned 21 in November and was one of the oldest prep players from his class. He may head to Low-A initially, but given his age, the Mets will likely look to push him up to High-A in fairly short order. Baty will continue to be developed as a third baseman for now.

Cranks first homer

June 2, 2021
Baty went 3-for-4 with a walk, a double, a home run, two runs scored and three RBI for High-A Brooklyn on Tuesday.
It was the first homer of the year for the Mets' No. 6 fantasy prospect. Baty has been posting strong numbers at the plate despite the lack of power, though, slashing .343/.451/.478 through 19 games for the Cyclones with a 13:19 BB:K. The 12th overall pick in the 2019 draft, Baty could push for a promotion to Double-A over the summer if he keeps raking.

2020 Fantasy Outlook
Seen as one of the best offensive-minded players from the high school ranks, Baty was selected by the Mets with the 12th-overall pick. He hit just .234 across stops in the Gulf Coast, Appalachian and New York-Penn leagues, but thanks to a 15.4 BB%, he had a .368 OBP in his pro debut. The early returns suggest he may be a three-true-outcomes slugger (28.5 K%), so he should be slightly downgraded in batting average leagues. Baty, who hits left-handed and throws right-handed, has monster raw power to all fields that he has no trouble getting to in games. He was old for his class and turned 20 this offseason, so he won't get the benefit of the doubt if he struggles in his full-season debut. Defensively, there are concerns that he might outgrow third base -- he is already 6-foot-3, 210 pounds -- but he has the arm and hands for the position.
