Get To Know A Non-Roster Invitee: Hayden Senger

The Mets invited four catchers to major league camp this year and today we look at the last catcher, by alphabetical order, Hayden Senger.

The Mets drafted Hayden Senger in 2018 during the 24th round out of the Miami University of Ohio. He played over two different levels in 2021. In Brooklyn he played 11 games and 47 PA’s with a .302/.362/.605 batting line. That’s a .966 OPS! Then he played for Binghamton where over 50 games and 205 PA’s, he hit .254/.337/.387. The Mets also sent him to the Arizona Fall League last year where over 11 games and 40 PA’s he hit .194/.375/.226.

Hayden Senger is currently listed as the Mets #20 prospect according to MLB dot com. Similar to fellow NRI teammate, Nick Meyer, he’s a defense first catcher. He’s also competing with Meyer to be the Mets back up catcher of the future. They note that while his arm might leave something to be desired, he has good reactions and is a good blocker behind the plate. They also note that he would probably hold his own in the majors right now.

This bodes well for the Mets because Senger, Dini and Meyer are the Mets plan right now if something was to happen to either McCann or Nido this season, which is to say we should see one of Senger/Dini/Meyer at some point this season.
