For his short MLB career, Blankenhorn is hitting .192 (5-for-26).

His promotion from Triple-A Syracuse was made possible by the Mets placing Dominic Smith on the 10-day injured list. Blankenhorn was called up earlier in the day Friday, ahead of the series opener with the Padres.

With Syracuse, Blankenhorn has seen his average climb over the season. He’s currently hitting .276 with a dozen home runs and 43 RBI.

You can watch Blankenhorn’s start tonight at 7 p.m. on SNY.
