Breaking down Rosario's game 00:03:55
Gary Apple, Nelson Figueroa and Jim Duquette discuss how Amed Rosario can improve at the plate and in the field moving forward.

Mets rookie SS Amed Rosario is heating up as he spends his second month in the majors.

Rosario, 21, is hitting .256/.287/.427 with four HR, two doubles, three triples, and 8 RBI in 117 at-bats since making his big league debut last month.

In September, Rosario -- who missed roughly a week recently due to a finger injury -- is hitting .353/.421/.412.

One area where Rosario needs to improve is his two-strike approach, especially when it comes to chasing pitches that are off the plate away.

MLB teams are now allowed to promote any player who's on their 40-man roster to the majors. Typically, in the case of non-contending teams like the Mets, organizations wait to promote people until after their minor league affiliates finish their respective seasons.

At that point, teams promote players already on the roster to add depth and guys that will soon have to be added to the 40-man roster due to their Rule 5 Draft eligibility.

Here are 10 players that will be talked about being promoted, only some of which will actually get the call during the next month.

Mets infielders Amed Rosario and Asdrubal Cabrera came up clutch late to lead New York to a 6-5 win over the Washington Nationals in Game 1 of Sunday's doubleheader at Nationals Park.

After Rosario hit a tiebreaking home run in the top of the eighth inning to give the Mets a lead, Cabrera threw out pinch runner Edwin Jackson at the plate to end the game.

Jackson, pinch running after Adam Lind drew a two-out walk off AJ Ramos, tried to score when Daniel Murphy lined a double to right field. Juan Lagares threw to the cutoff man Cabrera, who then threw a laser to catcher Travis d'Arnaud from short right field in time for d'Arnaud to block the plate and tag Jackson out.

"It was a perfect throw from the outfield," Jackson said, according to MLB.com's Jamal Collier. "From I'm guessing the second baseman, to home, perfect throw. Got me out at home."

Many of the Mets' youngest players played key roles at the plate, on the field, and on the mound in the team's 4-2 win over the Diamondbacks on Wednesday night.

Michael Conforto had two RBI singles to lead the offense, while Dominic Smith hit his third home run and Amed Rosario had two hits and an RBI. Brandon Nimmo hit a double and reached base four times. On the mound, Chris Flexen pitched six innings for the first time in his career and earned his third win of the season. 

"It's fun for me because I played with these guys coming up," Conforto said after the game. "It's cool that now they're here with me. I think right now they're in the part where they're just getting their feet wet... I think they're doing a great job so far and when the time comes I'll give them some knowledge if need be."

Wilmer Flores seems to have been a Met for a very long time. Since debuting in 2013, he has amassed over 1,500 plate appearances while playing no fewer than 50 games in each of the four infield spots. Along the way, he has collected 54 home runs, 192 RBI, and one dramatic last-minute reprieve from a trade to the Brewers. No wonder it's so easy to forget that he's still just 26 years old.

Despite moving through the Mets system on the strength of his bat, Flores didn't get off to a hot start in the majors, putting up a paltry .675 OPS from 2013-15. But over the past two seasons, coinciding with the end of his experimental shortstop run, he has put together a .272/.318/.478 slash line -- not a dominant offensive performance, but above league average and the kind of line that keeps a hitter in a lineup on a regular basis. It's fairly similar to the numbers Wil Myers has put up in San Diego over the same time period, although Flores has fewer plate appearances.

Flores has seen significant handedness splits over the course of his career, with an .830 OPS against lefties and a .686 OPS against righties. As a result, he has been used largely in a platoon role. But this season, he is showing something new.

Flores' OPS against lefties is almost identical to his career split, but he has made great strides against righties - a .789 OPS along with nine of his 15 home runs. While he is still a dependable hitter against left-handed pitching, he no longer appears to be a liability against right-handers, which would be a big step forward in his development...

In the seventh inning, with Jacob deGrom on the mound, rookie SS Amed Rosario scooped up a routine grounder and double tapped the ball to his glove before making a casual throw to first base.

The batter, Dee Gordon, who is among the fastest runners in the league, was safe.

"I am learning from all these small mistakes," Rosario said. "I knew he could run well, but I got a little overconfident on that play. ... I really do feel bad about that error."

Rosario is the best prospect in baseball, according to ESPN's Keith Law. He was also ranked No. 1 by Law on his list at the beginning of the season.

"Circumstances have to be right" for the Mets to call up SS prospect Amed Rosario and 1B prospect Dominic Smith, Mets GM Sandy Alderson said on Friday.

"Right now, we think the best thing for the both of them is to continue to play in Las Vegas" until the Mets' situation (regarding being in or out of the postseason race) "clarifies itself," Alderson said.

When asked whether Rosario would improve the team, Alderson referred to Jose Reyes, whose recent play the GM praised.

Mets shortstop prospect Amed Rosario told Hardball Scoop that he is ready to compete at the major league level in a big market.

"I don't really pay attention to what else is going," Rosario said through a translator. "I just keep focusing on my work and come every day to the field and keep working hard. That's all I can control so that's what I really focus on. Playing in New York though, that's going to be a lot of pressure because of it being a big city, but I'm ready for it."

Rosario, ranked as baseball's third-best prospect by MLB.com, is hitting .327 with a .365 OBP and .474 SLG with seven HR, 16 doubles, seven triples, 16 stolen bases, 55 runs scored, and 52 RBI in 83 games this season for Triple-A Las Vegas.
