Between Pete Alonso, Francisco Lindor and Jeff McNeil, the New York Mets have one of the best infield groupings in baseball. Add in top prospect Brett Baty, who is poised to grab major playing time at third base in 2023, and the infield is shaping up to be even better next season.

Baty understands the importance of his 2023 season, especially with a chance to man the hot corner for one of the best rosters in the league. To take advantage of this opportunity, the highly touted prospect has made massive strides by working with a former All-Star infielder.

Will Sammon of The Athletic reported on Baty's offseason work with Troy Tulowitzki. It was Baty who sought out Tulowitzki and worked hard with him all winter to improve his defense.

“He’s not going to beat around the bush about anything and he’s not going to sugarcoat anything. If he doesn’t see something he thinks will play at the next level, he will tell you straight up," Baty said of his instructor.

Tulowitzki is a fine choice for teaching the ins and outs of infield play. A two-time Gold Glover and five-time All-Star, Tulo was considered one of the best shortstops in baseball for roughly a decade before injuries caught up to him.
