Mets Scratch pad: Imprint Vientos homers two times, David Peterson to get X-beams by walking

Mark Vientos needed to take part in the activity.

One of the Mets’ most proclaimed possibilities in camp this year, Vientos has for quite some time been known for his power at the plate yet it was two different possibilities — shortstop Ronny Mauricio and third baseman Brett Baty — who had been doing the majority of the grand slam hitting for the Mets until Saturday.

There is by all accounts some solid rivalry between the Mets’ top possibilities. Vientos played in Triple-A last season with Baty and catcher Francisco Alvarez, another of the Mets’ power-hitting possibilities, and the threesome ought to be participated in Syracuse by Mauricio this season.

“I was playing with Brett and Ronny recently. I was like, ‘You all have some, presently I must get me one,'” Vientos said. “Two today, so it was good to get them out of the way.”While Vientos obviously partakes in his Syracuse partners, the 23-year-old is trusting more grand slams and the capacity to play various positions will assist him with returning to the huge club in Sovereigns and all the more critically, assist him with remaining there. Vientos began at third base interestingly this spring on Saturday subsequent to having played for the most part at first over the course of the last seven day stretch of games. He likewise has an outfield glove with him. Drafted as a third baseman, he’s mindful of what the profundity graph resembles with Baty and Eduardo Escobar, the last option of which has assisted him with dealing with his safeguard at the position.

With the assistance of Escobar, infield facilitator Joey Cora and seat mentor Eric Chavez, Vientos believes he’s prepared to play third base consistently in the Significant Associations. He sat down for a moment to chat with Chavez before the game about getting ground balls and his pre-pitch arrangement at third and he feels his initial step snappiness worked on over the colder time of year.

In any case, Vientos is sure at both corner infield positions and needs to play anyplace he’s really wanted.

“I’m glad to be on the field consistently, regardless of where that is,” Vientos said.
