Francisco Alvarez, the Mets best minor leaguer and the fourth-ranked catching prospect in all of baseball, per MLB Pipeline, has been called up to the Brooklyn Cyclones (Advanced-A), according to multiple reports.
The move is warranted, as Alvarez had been clubbing at Low-A St. Lucie. The 19-year-old catcher laced an impressive .417 batting average (20-for-48) with 2 dingers and 12 RBI as well as a 1.218 OPS in 15 games.
The No. 38 overall prospect in the minors, Alvarez smacked a .312 average with seven homers and 26 RBI along with a .407 OBP in 157 at-bats in 42 contests between the Kingsport Mets and the Gulf coast Mets, both of which are rookie ball.
