Padres continue to shine at the plate and in the field. A sizzling liner off the bat of Mets prospect Wilmer Reyes is caught by a jumping Eguy Rosario, who also makes a nice play to his left on the very next pitch, getting the assist on the groundout.

@jackwramsey Who's a sleeper outside of the top 10? How about Wilmer Reyes? Was injured, but hit .400 in a small sample in Brooklyn and they sent him to the AZ fall league, so they might like him a little bit.
Update: Carlos Cortes and Brett Baty are now 6 for 7 with 2 BB. Also of note defensively Cortes LF, Baty 3B, Wilmer Reyes 2B. C Hayden Senger went 0 for 2 and was taken out. Reyes is 0 for 4. #Mets https://t.co/2NQXt0rgGu
All four of the Mets position player prospects are in the Opening Day lineup for the Salt River Rafters:

They're facing MacKenzie Gore.
Infielder Wilmer Reyes (taxi squad) is the Mets 4th position player prospect in the AFL.
I had him No. 28 on my Mets top 30 despite a knee injury forcing him to miss most of 2021.
He's a strong defensive SS that has also played 2B, 1B, 3B, CF, LF. Had .892 OPS this season.

Second-ranked Brett Baty will be among eight Mets prospects playing for the Salt River Rafters in this year's Arizona Fall League.
The rest: Carlos Cortes, Garrison Bryant, Connor Grey, Colin Holderman, Brian Metoyer, Hayden Senger and Wilmer Reyes.
I am just fascinated by how much talent the Mets have in the minors. The Mets are going to be an offensive powerhouse in the next few years.
Wilmer Reyes is 6-for-12 with five RBI in three games since rejoining the Cyclones including this three-run blast tonight against the Renegades.
Hudson Valley leads 13-8 as we head to the ninth inning.

Welcome back Wilmer!
In his first game back with BKLYN, Wilmer Reyes has a bases clearing double - the TD Bank Double of the Game - to give Brooklyn a 5-2 lead in the 3rd inning.
Guess who's back? Back again.
Wilmer's back. Tell a friend.
One of the stars of the 2019 NYPL Champion Cyclones - Wilmer Reyes - has been added to Brooklyn's roster and will join the team in Hudson Valley this evening.
#Mets minor league infielder Wilmer Reyes is making his season debut today in the Florida Complex League.
Reyes broke out by hitting .323 with Brooklyn in 2019 but suffered a torn MCL this offseason. Toolsy shortstop.
