Guillorme cranks first Mets' spring training home run

Posted: Updated:

PORT ST. LUCIE (WBNG) -- Best known for his glove, Luis Guillorme showed off his developing power by hitting the Mets' first home run of spring training Saturday at First Data Field.

The New York Mets fell to the St. Louis Cardinals, 10-5, but it was Guillorme's fifth inning solo blast to deep center field off Bud Norris that had everyone talking.

The 23-year-old infielder is currently ranked as the Mets' tenth-best prospect, according to MLB Pipeline.

In 2017, Guillorme hit just one home run in 481 at-bats with the Binghamton Rumble Ponies.

Prior to Saturday's bomb, the talented infielder had hit just two long balls in five minor league seasons (1,774 at-bats).

Maybe this is a sign of things to come at the plate for the Coral Springs native in 2018.
