Former Duck Marrero Called up by Mets

(Central Islip, N.Y., Aug. 16, 2022) – 2022 Long Island Ducks infielder Deven Marrero was called up to the Major Leagues by the New York Mets on Monday and appeared in their game against the Atlanta Braves. He becomes the 25th player in Ducks history to reach the Major League level after playing with Long Island.

 “This is an exciting opportunity for Deven,” said Ducks President/GM Michael Pfaff. “He provided a wealth of knowledge and experience to our clubhouse during his time here, and we congratulate him on achieving his dream of returning to the big leagues.”

 Marrero appeared in 50 games for the Ducks this season. He compiled a .238 batting average with one home run, 21 RBIs, 17 runs, 38 hits, seven doubles, 22 walks and five stolen bases. The Miami native put together a 16-game on-base streak from May 25 to June 10, in which he batted .377 (20-for-53) with eight RBIs, nine runs, 10 walks and a .477 on-base percentage.

 The 31-year-old begins his seventh season of Major League experience. He spent three seasons with the Boston Red Sox (2015-17), one with the Arizona Diamondbacks (2018) and two with the Miami Marlins (2019, 2021) prior to joining the Mets. He played in 173 games during his first six MLB seasons, totaling six home runs, 38 RBIs, 55 runs, 65 hits, 10 doubles, one triple, 11 stolen bases and 26 walks.

 Marrero becomes the fourth Ducks alumnus to be called up to MLB by the Mets after playing with the Ducks. He joins Nelson Figueroa, Justin Hampson and Scott Rice, with Rich Hill also appearing in a Mets uniform six seasons after his time with the Flock. Marrero is also the seventh player in Ducks history to reach MLB in the same season he played for Long Island. Others include Pedro Borbon Jr. (2003), Lew Ford (2012), Hill (2015), Tim Melville (2017, 2019), Quintin Berry (2017) and Henderson Alvarez (2017).

 Following is the complete list of Ducks players to reach MLB after playing on Long Island:
