Mets prospect Khalil Lee, who excelled for Syracuse this season, has been named a Triple-A East League All-Star.

In 102 games this season for Syracuse, Lee hit .274/.451/.500 with 14 homers, 20 doubles, two triples, and eight stolen bases.

The 23-year-old Lee's .451 OBP led the league and set a Syracuse franchise record.

Lee, who struggled offensively in 11 games for the Mets early in the 2021 season after he was called up out of necessity, could make some noise in the bigs as early as next season.

SNY contributor Joe DeMayo wrote about Lee on SNY's latest Mets top 20 prospects list:

He has above average raw power that hasn’t fully translated into games yet and above average speed on the base paths. Defensively, he can play all three outfield spots with a plus arm. If he can make more consistent contact, he is a potential starting outfielder. If he cannot improve that, he should be a valuable fourth outfielder.

Along with Lee, Mark Vientos and Brett Baty are among the Mets position player prospects who could make their big league debut in 2022.
