Fans were startled to hear Mark Vientos announce his departure from the Mets.

According to a New York Post article, the New York Mets still appear set to send third base prospect Brett Baty to the minor levels before opening day, despite a sensational spring.

In fact, despite receiving far less attention than Baty, the Post stated that fellow prospect Mark Vientos has a higher chance of reaching the major league team.

Since superstar Pete Alonso presently occupies first base, where Vientos plays most of his games, his best chance of making the team is probably as a designated hitter. Vientos has a better chance of making the opening day roster since Daniel Vogelbach is having trouble and most Mets supporters are eager to throw Darin Ruf into the spotlight.

Conversely, Baty is blocked by Eduardo Escobar at third base. While Baty did everything that the Mets could have asked of him while Escobar was playing in the World Baseball Classic, Escobar is viewed as the third baseman of now, while Baty is the third sacker of the future.

While all Vientos would be asked to do is hit, the New York Mets want Baty to continue receiving regular playing time in order to refine his defense at third base.

However, that explanation is not sitting well with the Mets fanbase.
