The MLB postseason is in full swing and the hot stove has begun to heat up, but many of the game’s top prospects are getting valuable playing experience in the Arizona Fall League, which began its schedule on Oct. 13.

The Mets have eight prospects suiting up for the Salt River Rafters of the AFL, headlined by the team’s No. 2 overall prospect Brett Baty.

Here’s a look at how the Mets have faired to this point in AFL play …

3B/OF Brett Baty

After an up-and-down start to the season, Baty's power stroke is coming back, as he blasted his first home run of the fall on Thursday. The Mets' No. 2 overall prospect is 3 for his last 14 (.214), and his OPS this fall is .797.

2B/OF Carlos Cortes

The 10th-ranked prospect in the Mets system by MLB Pipeline, the versatile Cortes has seen action in LF and as a DH. Cortes went 1-for-3 with a double and two RBI on Friday.

C Hayden Senger

The 24-year-old right-handed hitting catcher is currently ranked as the Mets’ 21st overall prospect and the second highest ranked catcher, behind only No. 1 overall prospect Francisco Alvarez. Senger drove in a run on Thursday.

INF Wilmer Reyes

A 23-year-old who played 35 games with High-A Brooklyn last season, Reyes has been seeing time at second base and shortstop for the Rafters. Reyes went 1-for-4 with two runs scored on Friday, and has scored three runs in his last two games played.

RHP Colin Holderman

A ninth-round-pick of the Mets in 2016, Holderman struggled in relief on Thursday. He allowed four runs, all earned, on three hits in 0.2 innings of work, blowing the same and being charged with the loss.

RHP Garrison Bryant

A 2016 36th-rounder who pitched in just one game for Brooklyn last season, Bryant has allowed just one run in 7.0 innings this fall. He tossed two scoreless innings on Thursday and struck out two. He has a 0.86 WHIP and opponents are hitting .130 against him.

RHP Brian Metoyer

The 24-year-old struck out one in his lone inning of work on Thursday.

RHP Connor Grey

Last season, he pitched in seven games with five starts for the Double-A Binghamton Rumble Ponies, compiling a 4.55 ERA in 31.2 innings. The 27-year-old threw three innings of three-hit ball, allowing four runs (Three earned). Grey has a 4.00 ERA this fall (four earned runs/9.0 innings).
