Jett Williams

19-Year-Old ShortstopSS
New York Mets A
2023 Fantasy Outlook
He stands only 5-foot-8, but Williams was the best prep hitter in Texas and one of the best hitters in the nation last season, with scouts bullish on his offensive upside despite his undersized frame. The Mets landed him with the No. 14 overall pick, and he met expectations after signing. Williams has strength where it counts, in his forearms and lower body, and he generates plus bat speed that translates into much more power than one would expect from a teenager his size. He is also a plus runner (6-for-6 on SB attempts in 10 complex games), so Williams checks all of the boxes fantasy managers are looking for if they can get past his stature. Defensively, he will stick somewhere up the middle, most likely at second base if his arm isn't good enough for shortstop. Read Past Outlooks

Getting on base at Single-A

June 1, 2023
Williams is hitting .207 with a .401 OBP, one home run and 13 steals in 34 games for Single-A St. Lucie.
The 19-year-old shortstop has a strong batted-ball profile, with a 32 percent groundball rate and all-fields approach, but it hasn't translated into a high batting average in the early going. Even as an undersized 5-foot-6 middle infielder, Williams is strong where it counts and is expected to eventually develop notable over-the-fence power to go with his 70-grade speed.
