Mets to call up No. 1 prospect in baseball

Ahead of their pivotal series against the Braves, the Mets are expected to add a bat they hope will be a big part of their future. The club is set to call up baseball’s No. 1 overall prospect, Francisco Álvarez, a source told’s Mark Feinsand. The team has not confirmed the move.

Álvarez was tearing it up at Double-A Binghamton with 18 homers in 67 games before getting the call to Triple-A, where he was starting to get comfortable before suffering a right ankle injury. But the Mets saw enough when he returned from the injury to give him a shot with a week to go in the season and in the middle of a pennant race with no margin for error.

The 20-year-old catcher could see time as the designated hitter, where the Mets have relied on Darin Ruf against left-handed pitching.
