Mets' Jett Williams: Moving up to Double-A
The Mets promoted Williams from High-A Brooklyn to Double-A Binghamton on Monday, Anthony DiComo of MLB.com reports.
Williams will receive his second promotion of the season after he turned in a .299/.451/.567 batting line with seven home runs and 12 stolen bases in 162 plate appearances for Brooklyn upon moving up from Single-A St. Lucie in early August. The excellent showing has earned him a late-season look at the Double-A level, an impressive development considering he won't turn 20 until November.

Mets' Jett Williams: Jumping to High-A
The Mets promoted Williams from Single-A St. Lucie to High-A Brooklyn on Sunday, Tim Healey of Newsday reports.
Williams primarily played shortstop for St. Lucie but also saw action in center field, and he'll now move up to Brooklyn.

Mets' Jett Williams: Dialed in at Single-A
Williams is hitting .290 with two home runs, seven steals, 17 walks and 13 strikeouts in his last 21 games for Single-A St. Lucie.

Mets' Jett Williams: Getting on base at Single-A
Williams is hitting .207 with a .401 OBP, one home run and 13 steals in 34 games for Single-A St. Lucie.
The 19-year-old shortstop has a strong batted-ball profile, with a 32 percent groundball rate and all-fields approach, but it hasn't translated into a high batting average in the early going. Even as an undersized 5-foot-6 middle infielder, Williams is strong where it counts and is expected to eventually develop notable over-the-fence power to go with his 70-grade speed.... See More ...

Mets' Jett Williams: Solid start in rookie ball
Williams has played in 10 games for the Mets' Florida Coast League affiliate, putting up a .250/.366/.438 line with a homer, six steals and a 4:6 BB:K.
He's certainly living up to his name on the basepaths, as Williams has succeeded on all of his steal attempts. The 14th overall pick in this year's draft, the 18-year-old Williams is years and years away from the majors, but he's off to a fine start to his professional career.... See More ... See Less
